Writer's Block: Universal Trek  
I love Star Trek and have since I got hooked on TNG though admittedly I've never been a big fan of the Original Series. Love the movies though.

Honestly, I think the people who love it, love it so much because of the fantasy aspect of it. It is a completely different world in which to lose yourself. Also with Star Trek there is this idea of a perfect society where pretty much everyone is accepted and there is a defined line between the good and the bad.

Do I think our world will every have a utopian society? No, I find the idea rather implausible because you will always have those that want to push the limits of right and wrong. As for the technological aspect of it. Well they are already working on mechanical heart parts which effectively stop the heart beat while still moving you blood through your body enabling, in some cases, the heart to heal (when they never believed it could before). You are alive and well but you don't have a heart beat.... *coughs* Captain Picard!
