(Link in post title). 4-part interview and article on the occasion of Star Trek's 45th Anniversary.
I'm an unabashed Trek fan. I'm neither a trekkie nor a trekker, because I refuse to get into a silly debate over proper labels, but I've seen nearly all of the movies and TV series, with the exception of the animated series and Enterprise. Trek had a profound effect on my love of sci-fi - the unmitigated joy of adventure and exploration of what's "out there."
Live long and prosper. Indeed.
