Star Trek the movie was released on DVD on Tuesday, November 17th.
This movie is a prime example of what can happen when people come together
in love and commonalities to create something of value, for all.
After watching the movie again, I realized why I had such an intense emotional
response when I saw it in the theater. Star Trek, the original series, represented
what we all wanted America to be. A melting pot of humans at their best and brightest.
A community based on values of love, respect, encouragement of individual talents,
loyalty, friendship and honor.
The laws of the Federation were just. Help when help is needed, refrain from interfering
and do no harm.
I believe the reason the tears rolled from my eyes under the cover of theater darkness
was that inside myself I was asking 'Can we be what we were supposed to be?'.
Portions of the special features section of the DVD brought me to tears again. It is just
wonderful to see the reverence with which the new actors approach the undertaking.
The segments of the new actors interacting with the originals are priceless. It is so
obvious that everyone involved with this movie loved what they were doing.
Everyone should see this movie.
Oh-em-gee. I'm a nerd,....oh well, could be worse.
