sure star trek: tos can seem pretty hokey when you watch it today but consider this
all those special effects were done without computers
and communicators were essentially flip cell phones. they came up with the idea long before cell phones were invented
PADDs were literally tablets. and the talking computer voice? uh-huh, that’d be siri
it’s freaking incredible. did star trek predict the future of technology or did it influence the future of technology?
