Space: the Final Frontier

Do you remember where you were when man first step on the moon? Or should I say leap?

Neil Armstrong said as he landed on the moon, ” That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.”

It was July 16, 1969 when Apollo 11 landed on the moon. It was a proud moment for the United States; since Nixon was President, we were in the midst of the Vietnam War and Peace rally, or some may say riot. We needed that good news at that time. It was such a proud moment in history that Walter Cronkite wiped the tears of joy from his eyes as he reported that proud news.

The original Star Trek aired on television from September 8, 1966 to June 3, 1969. It’s an American science fiction media franchise created by Gene Roddenberry. The rating was low at first but it quickly became a worldwide pop-culture phenomenon. When it aired it promised, “to boldly go where no man has gone before.”

If you never watched the original Star Trek, you ought to check it out. I have to admit, I enjoyed the original Star Trek over Star Trek, the Next Generation. Even though it was Science Fiction, it had, I believe more relatable topic during that time period. It had the first interracial kiss on television for example.

When Gene Roddenberry created the series, he didn’t really wanted William Shatner as the star in the series. There was a whole different captain for the pilot. That didn’t go well with the network executives. They almost didn’t make it off the ground; until William Shatner was slated to starred in the series as Captain James T. Kirk.

I was more interested watching Spock and Scotty, rather than Kirk. I enjoyed the debate scene between Spock and Bones very much. When Bones would talk about feelings and even called out Spock as having no feelings at all. Then Spock would come back to say, “That’s illogical!” Every once in awhile, I find myself saying that when I come across idiotic people.

Tim Allen from Home Improvement wasn’t the first to say, “More Power!” But rather, it was Scotty on Star Trek who would say to Captain Kirk, “We need more power!”

Believe me, I’m no engineer. I’m not even a true science fiction geek.

In the ’80’s, I had a chance to see James Doohan, who played Scotty, when he came to NDSU to speak. James Doohan faked Scottie’s Scottish accent. He was the chief engineer of the U.S.S Enterprise. He did the French and German accent but him and Gene both decided that the Scottish accent had to be the one for Scotty.

Remembered when I said earlier that Gene Roddenberry didn’t want William Shatner earlier in this blog. Well, even James Doohan said when he came to Fargo, that William Shatner wasn’t well like by his fellow cast members.

When James Doohan came to NDSU to speak, I got his autograph and shook his hand.

James Doohan said of William Shatner, that he was very egotistical. In other words, he was self-centered and arrogant. When you see William Shatner in other projects, you see it too. My mother like him in T.J. Hooker; but if she knew the kind of person he really was, she wouldn’t have cared for him. When she would say about people like that is, “Their shit don’t stink but their farts give them away.” She didn’t care for people who comes across as being so full of themselves. Believe me, William Shatner came across that way to his fellow castmates. Even if you sees him today.

When they did a new movie version of Star Trek recently, Chris Pine played a younger version of Captain Kirk. At the same time, he was spoofing William Shatner’s egotistical personality.

Just this past year, Jeff Bezos and Blue Origin’s New Shepard into space. On one of the trip, William Shatner actually went up into space with Jeff Bezos.

If you ask me, he should have stayed there.

Jeff Bezos is the founder of Amazon. He is also one who would hide the truth about Joe and Hunter Biden; just so they can get Biden elected President and get rid of Trump. He doesn’t treat his employees of Amazon very well either. I’m not going to go anymore with that because that is a whole different blog.

Even though I liked the original Star Trek, and I like the idea of space exploration; I have to admit there is more important things to do for this planet than going to outer space. Space may be the final frontier; where we can boldly go where no man has gone before.

What I really love to see is a healthier planet, free from pollution; and not just air and water. I would love to see people to actually get along with one another despite of their differences. I also would like to see, no more chemicals in our food we eat and grow. We are not the healthiest because of all the poisons being fed us in our food and medications. No wonder, people have to get vaccinated or get medical help because of all the poisons we are being fed.

We wouldn’t had this virus that was created in Wuhan lab if we actually were healthier and not being fed poisons in what we eat and drink. The poison in the air as well. Those who had to get the vaccines were just guinea pig. We don’t know the whole truth about the vaccine and probably never will because of people like Bezos for example, don’t want us to know the truth. I wouldn’t doubt years later, health risk from the vaccine will be discover. Then what will they say? They will do all they can to keep us from finding out the who truth. That way they can control us.

What do you think? Go ahead and comment, I would like to hear from you.

As Spock would say, “Live long and prosper!”
