5 fantastic movie futures we’d love to live in (plus 5 we’d hate)

Pick any version of the show (except possibly Star Trek: Voyager) and you’ve got a sci-fi future we’d love to live in. Unlike a lot of sci-fi, Star Trek has always tended toward a utopian vision of our future selves in which racism, sexism, ageism and, in Captain’s Picard’s case, jokes against male-pattern baldness are all relics of the distant past. There’s also intergalactic travel, a ton of colorful aliens in existence, and the holodeck to unwind on after a hard day’s work. Oh yes, and we get to wear spandex jumpsuits to our heart’s content.

    The crystal turns to flashing red when the time is up, not black. Many of the buildings used in the movie were in Dallas including the Water Sculpture Park in Ft. Worth.
