As a fan of Star Trek, I am glad I got to this and sad to see it closing. Maybe with the new movie some new interest will be drawn in. It seems the last few series & movies that Star Trek lost its way. A shame given the times - which do not seem much different than when Star Trek first hit the scene.
Maybe Star Trek has run its course. Although we can all use a TV show that has an underlying positive message, maybe today we have grown beyond the relative simplicity of the message/possibility that Star Trek showed. Maybe instead of sitting back, people are creating their own ways of connecting with people.
