Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I used to think of Star Trek as silly space opera. But you're not the only person close to me who sees it as a desirable utopia.

Did I say Space Opera?

In Scientology, founder L. Ron Hubbard used the science fiction term space opera to describe what he said were actual extraterrestrial civilizations and alien interventions in past lives. Upon Hubbard's death in 1986, the Church of Scientology announced that he had discarded his physical body and was now "on a planet a galaxy away."

En un viejo país ineficiente, algo así como España entre dos guerras civiles, poseer una casa y poca hacienda y memoria ninguna. -- Gil de Biedma

Not "the new generation series" which uses the 60's optimism and merges it with the ecological nascient movement... a must-see.

You mightlike thsi as an introduction http://www.pointofinquiry.org/susan_sackett_the_secular_humanism_of_star_trek/

but write star trek the new generation and humanism in google..and you will see.

A pleasure

I therefore claim to show, not how men think in myths, but how myths operate in men's minds without their being aware of the fact. Levi-Strauss, Claude
