Star Trek debuted in 1967, the creation of its creator the write Gene Roddenberry. The series has gone on to touch millions of people, giving them something to talk about with one another as well as a future to aspire to. There are countless reasons why a person might be a Trek fan. I know, I am one.
However there are a number of reasons to love Trek that touch across every boundary and race. I am going to now list my top three reasons why I love the series. So, without further ado, let's get to the list.
1. Star Trek is Exciting
The stories of Star Trek feature humanity in future episodes that capture the feeling of true excitement. I know that many feel that Trek is talky, but, if you think about, each episode is action packed. Imagine being in the 24th century and seeing a foreign, alien starship decloaking before you. Imagine the excitement that would be pumping through your veins. That's what Trek represents. In it the impossible becomes possible and because of that they are able to tell stories that are simply too difficult to tell otherwise.
2. Star Trek features humanity at its best
In the future there will be no poverty, there will be no hunger and there will be no war. All people will love each other as brothers. It is this filial piety that excites so many in regards to the many series. It shows humanity overcoming the obstacles that face us today.
3. Star Trek has cool effects
There is nothing so cool as a fantastic Star Trek effect. A few of the early features were a little sketchy in the effects department. However, in recent years the films have boasted some cutting edge special effects which have been very exciting. If you are looking for visual excitement then this might be for you.
Those are my top three reasons for loving Trek. I know that there are millions of us out there and I enjoy the fact that we all have something in common and something to talk about. Let's live long and prosper for another fifty years.
