"To me, Star Trek has always been a about positive outlook on the future, and that's a view which is sometimes sorely lacking in science fiction. I tend not to buy, and don't want to believe, that the fate of Mankind is some post-atomic horror, as even Jean-Luc Picard described it, which is why I like Classic Trek's take on our near future even more than the newer shows. In Classic Trek, we avoided mass nuclear war, and I think we will in real life as well. Trek, at its best, has confidence in us--sometimes more than we have in ourselves. That has always been, for me, the mair reason to watch, read, and listen."
