I'm taking a break from the story...
When I was a kid I remember watching Star Trek and thinking how cool all of the stuff they had to communicate and get around was.

What was fiction...
is now fact?

  1. Shatner hosted a documentary that I couldn't find that talked about all the Star Treck items that actually exist today. Amazing. Here's a link that talks about 10 of them. Fascinating...

    1. I saw that documentary, too. But considering I remember every single bit of stupid-ass trivia known to mankind...I remembered it.

      It is this, if I'm not mistaken: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/How_William_Shatner_Changed_the_World

  5. Hah! You know, just last week I downloaded the STar Trek app for my iPhone (yes, the one that makes Nicky see green). It make all the noises their communicators made, and has all the famous lines I remember, like, "I canna give you any more power Captain! She'll blow apart!"

    I'm such a nerd.

  9. It's actually pretty crazy how to much Star Trek stuff became fact and is still becoming reality.

  10. I keep trying to be beamed up but it never works!

    I have seen almost every original star trek ever made. LOVED IT!

  11. Nicely done, Barb. Supposedly, Star Trek also inspired the creation of floppy disks.
