Boldly going where no one has gone before

I’m a Star Trek fan. I have been ever since I first saw Star Trek II: Wrath of Khan, with ‘Mr Rourke’ from Fantasy Island, but as I’d never seen him before. I was a teenager, and that movie touched something in me, which has continuously been touched by Star Trek ever since. My favourite series was The Next Generation, with Captain Jean Luc Picard (that man was inspirational!), followed by Deep Space Nine.

For some years now, I’ve been following Wil Wheaton’s blog, reading about his life and his memories of his youth that’s included playing Wesley Crusher on The Next Generation. He’s an excellent writer, so I’ve enjoyed reading what he’s written. He recently wrote something that touched me, and I wanted to share it with you.

He gave a speech at the induction of Gene Roddenberry into the Science Fiction Hall of Fame in Seattle. What he wrote is worth reading. So have a read, you’ll enjoy it.

Gene Roddenberry: Boldly Going Where No One Had Gone Before.
