Well, now we know that Star Trek is all an alternate future. It's starting to look more like 2001: A Space Odyssey where all the space traffic has corporate logos. Obviously nobody can accurately portray the future. I don't think that we really have much of a future in space unless we turn away from our entitlement state. My thoughts are that if Revelation is right, the future of humanity is limited because it will destroy itself.
Strutting and fretting in an insane world.
