The Geometry of Star Trek.
Might be helpful for any starship designers out there...
Before anyone starts in with name calling, let me say that I've enjoyed all the reincarnations of Star Trek. It's just that there was "something" missing and when several of the shows basically broke down into the 'Starship firefight of the week' They lost my interest. That doesn't mean that there weren't some real gems. Star Trek is about Exploration, not warfare and combat.
With the new films 'Star Trek' and 'Into Darkness' I think the actors are doing a great job filling the parts. They do need better writers however.
I've enjoyed the new films, in the way that I enjoy the 'Star Wars' films, I don't have to concentrate to much...
Hope the next 'Star Trek' writer remembers the time when we were explorers, going, boldly 'where no man has gone before.'
