Science fiction to science. won't be long before we are motoring around in hovercars the Jetsons style. I think we will always have leaps from science fiction to not so fiction just because fans will go a long way to duplicate something that they see in their favorite show or movie. alot of brilliant minds out there that will look towards these venues for insperation.

my husband is a big star trek fan and I watch with him but don't get into it quite as much. (except for the awesome old school tv episodes) so when we sat down to watch first contact several years ago, i noticed that jonathan frakes directed it, or helped to write the screenplay or something. Then his character was suddenly a pimp in the tub with some hot woman, I forget who. that was when I started going ehhhhewwwwwwww!!!!!!
