|I remember stumbling across Star Trek when I was a kid in the late 60's. Back then there were only 3 stations to choose from & no remote controls, so I was sitting on the floor in front of the TV & twisting the knob. It must have already been in syndication because I'm sure it was a Saturday afternoon. Anyhow, I came across the show & I remember thinking how stupid it looked, but there was nothing else to watch so I took a seat on the couch. Needless to say, I got hooked & became a fan.|
I don't know how much an impact the show had on technology. I guess communicators could be cell phones & phasers could be stun guns, but I think warp drive, teleporters, & photon torpedoes are still a ways off.
