    A live-action Star Trek series in 1973-1974 would've been awesome because of how dated it would've been. The '70s kind of dated. It's the best kind of dated. :devil:

    Bring on the bell-bottoms, chest hair, medallions, afros, and leisure suit dress uniforms. When the ship goes to red alert, a disco ball flashes red around.

    They both evolved from the same monoculture. Apparently there was a single planet wide language when the Romulans left.

    I can't see that image without thinking of SF Debris Joke:
    They've clearly gone out of their way with all the stuff to not have that sixties era feel to it. Instead, be a timeless piece that— (McCoy shows up on the transporter)What the hell? (disco music plays) I'm not sure, this might be Grizzly Adams, and he seems to have the headpiece to the staff of Ra around his neck."

    It's been many years and I don't do it often but each time I think seriously of the interplanetary breeding it makes me laugh to no end. You'd have better luck getting a lizard to mate with a cow!!!

    And traveling at light speed would cause time dilatation effects.

    You know it's funny because in the 1950's most sci. fi. writers didn't understand squat about Einstien's Relativity so they thought that light speed was something like the sound barrier, you just had to move past it (by a few engine modifications maybe ) and then you could go as fast as you wanted without any time effects...

    The technobabble required to explain why time dilation doesn’t happen would be both glorious and terrible.

    That would be a viable theory if Spock had not been her only child. Sarek apparently is a serial monogamist with a kink for Humans. Unknown Vulcan woman, Amanda, then Perrin. That we know of that TPTB have not ret-coned yet.

    Yeah, but he doesn't divorce them so that's a good thing. Otherwise, he would have married like forty of them or about.

    BTW, the unknown Vulcan woman was a princess and she gave him the laughing Vulcan... Sybok.

    They sure did ignore the light barrier. But I think they all heard of relativity, and a light speed limit, and chose to ignore it for better stories. Similar to how Asimov often ignored the fact that most worlds in our solar system can't produce life. If you want people to meet aliens, it's easiest to ignore science.
