Beam me up Scotty... One last time.

Well, it's confirmed, we are losing another star of Star Trek, this time to Alzheimers disease. What does this have to do with GNXP you ask? Many people involved in science or engineering today attribute the positive, almost heroic characters on ST as influencing their decision. The show was also instrumental in illustrating how reason, logic, and technological savvy were all virtues. Finally it gave a changing '60's America a way to discuss the problems of the day in a dispassionate setting.

For those religious types, pray for him. For the non-religious types, recognize his contribution.
