This Week Is the 50th Anniversary of “Star Trek”

Next Thursday will be the 50th anniversary of the wildly popular Star Trek. For over ten years, I never hardly paid any attention to it. Then I met its creator, Gene Roddenberry. We sat together on an airplane having a very stimulating conversation, just the two of us, for nearly an hour about the possibility of aliens in space and if they have visited earth.

The police … [Read more...]
