Let’s say you are addicted to space travels. All your life you have grown up thinking: “If spaceships can travel thousands of kilometers on the blink of an eye… Why must I wake-up at 6 a.m. to travel almost an hour to go to school? Isn’t that unfair?” Then, somebody opens your eyes and explains to you: “Darling, this things are not real. It is impossible to travel so fast. Even less to the space.” Same day, on news, NASA says it has sent another mission to the space. So, please, remember me again: “Is it impossible… What?” And, on this case, we cannot attribute the lack of faith to a language misunderstood because in all my mother languages, plus in english, the word “impossible” has the “possible” on it.
Anyway, the fault of my Trekkie addiction was of Leonard Nimoy and that Star Trek film about to save the whales. I have lost the count of which number it has and I have not seen all the television episodes but Christopher Lee was amazing on the first one.
You cannot be considered a pure blood geek if you are not a Trekkie, right? Even if your family is not geek at all and they hate the hyperspace travels, you know which is your place. Of course! Your place is on the Enterprise. There: saving the galaxy of the bad guys. So why not to join them meanwhile you are doing good helping nine different NGOs. How? Well, I will let you with Kirk and his crew. They explain the things better than I. Haven‘t I rambled so much… Did I?
