Thank you.  There is a whole saga to go with the creation of it, but not for public consumption. You can reach me through the root page if you are curious.

ALL I REALLY NEEDED TO KNOW

Dave--very interesting.   Star Trek was "THE" program for future engineers when I was growing up and going through school.  We knew that with the proper educational background, work ethic and resourcefulness, any problem could be solved.   As you mentioned, all of this was created with individuals of varying ethnic backgrounds.  This is one thing Gene Roddenberry demanded from the scripts--diversity.  I also enjoyed the fact that he used individuals with differing skill sets in contributing to solutions. They all worked together.  (Wonder if any members of Congress ever watched the program.)
