Thoughtcrime 036: Star Trek Turns 50!


It is the 50th anniversary of the series premiere of Star Trek the Original Series. I take some time to look back on the top franchise in the science fiction genre and what it has meant to me as a fan and as a writer. The epic space opera franchise holds a special place in American culture and among nerds everywhere. It has inspired countless people in science and technology. From the Original Series to the upcoming Star Trek: Discovery, thirteen movies, and countless conventions, Star Trek will always be with us.

In this episode, I go through some of my favorite episodes that have influenced me personally as well as some of the most popular ones. I nerd out on such sexy topics like philosophy, ethics, social commentary, pyschology, and leadership.
