I have had a lot of my friends ask me this question (including my parents and my brother): Why Star Trek? For others out there who have a similar question for me, here is my detailed answer, which I was planning on talking about any ways:
In the beginning, I wasn't into Star Trek as much as I am now. I liked watching the shows for the origional series from 8 to 9, only when my parents would let me because then I had to go to bed. Then, I began to watch it more often. I wrote down more observations, more questions. Until finally, I was obsessed.
It wasn't because of the amazing, breathtaking, and daring missions that the crew of Starfleet take to complete their prime directive, even if sometimes they don't. It's because it's what I want to do someday in the future. I'm in middle school now, and I have a long way to go until I'm in Space Force. But when I get there, I want to make Star Trek come to life, and I want to go to space. I want to explore new worlds and new civilazations. I want to boldy go where no one has gone before...
