Writer's Block: Universal Trek

Star Trek has been a cultural phenomenon for decades, from TOS Kirk chewing up the scenery to reboot Kirk sky-diving from orbit. Why do you think this show has captivated so many viewers, both young and old? Do you wish the Trek vision of the human race's future would come true?
Well, there is the courage and the cooperation of beings of different ethnicity and species and even from different solar systems. There is the discovery and adventure. But interstellar travel will never serve the interests of any but a tiny elite. It has been a waste of our resources, energies, and talents from the beginning. The real adventure is inward. Until we know who we are, we will be unable to serve the universe any better than we have served this planet.
