    The story is well known among Trek fans – I think I heard it about 20-30 years ago – but I have no idea how well known it is among the population as a whole. Roddenberry had this crazy idea that we can overcome our differences and limitations and go places and do things we never dreamed were possible. Space and science fiction were just an abstraction to present that idea without having people reject it out of hand.

    And Nichelle Nichols is still one of the coolest people on this or any other planet. :-)

    If you can't say anything nice about the GOP, please post here more often.
