I do not care too much about star wars, but Star Strek touches me, as so did the matrix movie, some of you will understand. Star Trek brings the message that humanity has made contact and taken its place in the concert of planets as an advanced civilisation. Not only that, but it will help other planets to evolve. I am not sure where Gene Roddenberry was taking all these ideas from but my guess is that quite a few concepts presented there (replicators, beams, energy, healing, wealth, lack of money, multiple races, etc, etc) aren`t just imagination of the writers. The metaphysical messages are there as parables for those who are able to understand (I recall the episode Janeway vs. the Archons https://www.youtube.com/watch?...). Listen folks: We are heading for a Star Trek future and there is nothing that will stop it from happening.
