Star Trek

Some 'Star Trek' gadgets no longer futuristic

Forty years after the original "Star Trek" series was canceled, warp drives and transporter beams remain more science fiction than fact.

But some of Star Trek's 23rd century gadgets, such as handheld medical scanners, language translators and high-tech weaponry are becoming a reality in the 21st century.

For one thing, almost every moviegoer attending the latest Star Trek film that opened in theaters last week must remember to turn off their communicators - better known as cell phones.
I have to admit that my Treo does make me feel pretty darn space age...

We all went to see the new Star Trek movie this weekend, and we thought it was great! No complaints.

Also, did you see this great clip of Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto and Leonard Nimoy on Saturday Night Live? Update Feature: Star Trek Hee hee!

Reminds me a little of this, of course. (It cuts off a little early, but it's the best copy I could find. If there's a better one out there, let me know and I'll fix it.)

I always do what Captain Kirk tells me, so I'm signing off in an attempt to get a life. Live long and prosper...

LOL! So now that the old future stuff is reality...did they come up with some new future stuff for the film?
My husband and I are going to see it tomorrow, and we're big Trekkers, so we're really excited. I'll have to check out the SNL skit. I remember the Kirk one and it was hysterical!
Thanks for that. I hadn't had time to dig up the new SNL skit I'd heard about. I do remember the old one. It was a hoot.

We'll be seeing the movie this weekend. The good part is that my daughters actually want to see it and without any eye-rolling at the geekiness. All of a sudden, Trek is cool. Go figure.
