Point Of View: Live Long And Prosper


Like many “geeks” I grew up watching Star Trek.  I watched reruns (no I’m not that old) every week and I would imagine living in the future and dream of what might be.  In many ways Star Trek inspired me to expand my reach and embrace new and wonderful things.

The episodes with historical overtones made want to know more about human history and where we have gone through. Other shows on technology got me interested in computers.  But the biggest influence were shows that featured the arts such as drawing, painting, music and of course Shakespeare.

I found that Star Trek was not just a show about some future adventures but an exploration on the human condition.  And no I am not some Trekkie/trekker that runs around with a Starfleet uniform thinking he is some officer.  I’m just a guy that loves a show that makes me think, cry and laugh.

In essence, Star Trek has inspired me in ways I probably don’t even know.  But one thing I do know, is that it makes me laugh and feel good inside.  I cannot wait to see the new Star Trek Into Darkness movie and a great side effect of the movie is the merchandising and commercials associated with the film.

On that note I want to share a YouTube link with all of you.  It is an Audi commercial staring Lenard Nimoy and Zachary Quinto, the 2 Spocks’.  When I saw this commercial I couldn’t stop laughing.  I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

Live Long and Prosper.
