Hello, does Star Trek happen in our own "real" reality? No...

WE didn't have a Eugenics War in the 1990s...but THEY did. If you start tinkering with Trek history like that...do you really think we have any chance of attaining warp drive by 2063? Only 55 years from now?

Trek history need not relate directly to the real world...
Agreed, but alot of people, me included, would like to believe that Gene's idea of making it as scientifically plausable as possible would make a Trek time line a reasonable idea for humans to do in the time frames he gave instead of just being a distant dream, admit it, isn't that what was indicative of all Star Trek that the reason we love it so is because its all scientifically possible, how many peoples preception on the possibilities on what man could achieve if we only put our minds to it, took a tumble when 1990 came along and we'd only cloned a sheep?

Did deal with a really awsome issue though and may in itself have stopped man kind building clones or playing God... Still really sad that Trek can't be real... Oh the brittle dreams of a 6 year old watching TNG and imagining huh?

The big difference being when I was 6 I was trying to get my parents to let me stay up late to see Star Trek at 10pm during Season 3 of TOS...past my bedtime!

You rang?


Really, the only other option would be to shove the whole Trek timeline ahead by another 100 years at least...which would open a whole 'nother can of worms.

Better to leave history as it has "happened"...

Geez we're old, lol.


On a serious note, I totally agree with everything you said. Just had to comment on your 'you just got schooled' way of speaking.

Just because I grew up in a different time, does it make my understanding and love of the Trek universe any different to those of you who can remeber The Cage orginal airing in 1966? Besides which, I was origninally from the UK, they showed TNG, DS9 VOY and TOS pretty much all the time when I was growing up and I didn't have to beg, they were shown at 6pm every night virtually, so I feel insulted by that remark

I was actually making a joke about the fact of how when you were 6, you got to see Trek...and I didn't.

And just for reference..."The Cage" never aired in the US until sometime in the 1980s...
