Star Trek

“To boldly go whereIMG_20141116_011332 no man has gone before”

 

I confess – I was a Star Trekkie. (Maybe I still am.) I liked especially the second series “The next generation”. And I adored captain Jean-Luc Picard (Patrick Stewart)!

The quotation above was originally the name of an episode but was then included in the introductory sequence narrated at the beginning of every episode of Star Trek. Maybe the inspiration came from Captain James Cook, who wrote, when he in the 1760’s was charting the coast of Newfoundland, that he intended to go not only “farther than any man has been before me, but as far as I think it is possible for a man to go”.
