Dreams of the Future

Battlestar Galactica creator Ron Moore on James Tiberius Kirk. Really great. If you haven’t seen Trekkies you gotta check it out: It’s entirely moving to hear Star Trek fans talk about the show and its vision of the future. They sound, in fact, a lot like Moore:

And as I grew into an adult, and my political views took shape, I treasured “Star Trek” as a dream of what my country could one day become — a liberal and tolerant society, unafraid to live by its ideals in a dangerous universe, and secure in the knowledge that its greatness derived from the strength of its ideas rather than the power of its phasers.
