When I discovered that my girlfriend liked Star Trek, I bought a small color TV so I could entice her to come to my apartment to watch the original series. We both cheered when NBC announced that there would be a third season.
We were married in 1968 and had two children. We raised them in a very technology-friendly household. They played with my Apple II when I was at work. Today they both have Computer Science degrees and good jobs in the industry.
When my son got married I ended the customary father-of-the-groom speech with “live long and prosper” and the hand gesture. My son, his new wife, and all of their friends, understood me.
So, yes, you can say that Star Trek changed my life.
