|I Love Sci-Fi/Fantasy Because...|
...of Star Trek.
The Star Trek franchise offers nearly 750* hours of video entertainment:
|Series||# of Episodes||# of Seasons|
|The Next Generation||178||7|
|Deep Space Nine||176||7|
* Episodes run ~40-45 minutes without commercials,
but I rounded to an hour for simpler arithmetic.
And once Star Trek: Into Darkness is released we'll have twelve Star Trek movies.
Plus we have the couple hundred or so novels set in our favorite Federation.
I love Star Trek because of the characters and settings and richness of its portrayed reality. I love it because of its exploration of science, space and the human equation. But I love it most, I think, because of the hopeful promise it paints, its vision of humanity at its best.
Star Trek, with its immense reservoir of material exploring the final frontier, is a huge reason why I love science fiction and fantasy.
