Star Trek

When Classic Literature Becomes Classic Television

Here in lies evidence, humanity has not changed in over 2,000 years. You may find this trek trivial, but it may be an ominous warning. What if time was cyclic, like Bill Murray in Groundhog Day? And what if there was subtle evidence? And more, what if there was a way out? I submit to you that the greatest episode of original Star Trek, City on the Edge of Forever, is our reminder that if we don’t learn history, we’re doomed to repeat history. Star Trek is Virgil’s Aeneid.
