Remember the show "how Shatner changed everything", or something named like that? I think it was on the History channel. I had many non-Trek fans tell me they watched that show and that they had a different feeling toward us Trek fans after watching it.
I don't think this guy was against thinking about new ways to do things, but he wants it to be more...improvised on the spot if thats the correct term. But then again, he has made it clear to me in other conversations, if you're not working, having sex, or working on having sex...you're wasting your time.

"infatuated with what could be", those were your friends words. Of course he is not going to curse the cellphone or laptop he uses on a daily basis, but his words imply that our "infatuation with what could be" is somehow a bad thing. We don't live in "the here and now", that implies we are not grounded in reality. How old is your friend anyway? His ideas about, work, sex, and working for sex are quite hilarious, if not narrow minded. I was of a like mind at one point in my life, that is why I ask his age. Trust me, there is wayyyy more to life than work and sex, but sex does rank really high on my list!!

I don't have a whole lot to contribute to the thread, except this:

There's nothing wrong with someone who doesn't like sci-fi, or who isn't interested in seeing a Star Trek movie. Especially if they're not interested to begin with, and then they get lectured at length about "hope for the future" and "vision of humanity" and such. We would all be perceived in a better light if we didn't go around trying to "cure" people who simply don't share our taste in entertainment...

I don't have a problem with people who don't like Sci-Fi, except when the first words out of their mouth during a "watercooler" discussion is to mock me for liking it.

I don't tend to push my views on people, but if you set me up for an argument, I'll be more than happy to oblige.
