  1. The 5 reasons that Star Trek became important:
    -Timing (it was the perfect time to change peoples minds and expand them)
    -Language (The technology language was taught through the show and movies to young scientist)
    -Utopia (Star Trek show us what Utopia would look like)
    -Comedy (When you make people laugh; it releases ‘feel good hormones’)
    -Imagination (After the show was over for the night; it set minds into possibles and how they could make them possible)

For some of us, we went to the library to dive deeper into those or help created the technology of the future.
