No piece of art or entertainment has meant more to me than "Star Trek." It continues to have a profound effect on my life and the manner in which I perceive the world around me. The half century of philosophical and metaphysical musculature stands as one of the most robust presentations and defenses of humanism ever conceived.
As with any project of this nature and scope, far more has been left on the cutting room floor than is presented here. In fact, the original cut of this video was roughly an hour long! My simultaneously euphoric and agonizing mission was not to include every perfect moment, but rather, find those moments that best represented all those I was forced to abandon. I hope I have succeeded in doing that here.
This video is divided into six chapters:
- War & Violence
- Racism & Discrimination
- Death & Loss
- Exploration & Optimism
