Star Trek warped me. Now, whenever I see a beautiful woman, my vision goes all soft-focus. Somewhere, a theremin begins playing.
Yeah, I agree with you about the economics (or lack thereof) of Star Trek. The other thing that really bothered me was the apparent lack of advance in medicine. Sure, Bones had a tricorder and some nifty drugs, but people seemed to be aging and dying at the same rate as they do now. And why was Picard bald? By the time we reach the era of Star Trek in reality, if our descendants are human-looking at all, they will most likely be effectively immortal. And certainly not bald, except for aesthetic reasons.
