Thank you, Gene Roddenberry. Fifty years after the creation of Star Trek, you have left what remains an incredible legacy – for old and young alike. Generations have enjoyed and will continue to enjoy your vision of what could one day be.
Thank you for making the future racially diverse, for creating a non-consumer driven society, for envisioning a better world based on science and reason, for rejecting the notion that the best is behind us, and for making television thought-provoking.
Life is better because you dared to dream.
