This course outline looks very good. I watched the show growing up in the the late '60s & found the series an invaluable life tutorial.

With that in mind, would it be possible to include a section on 'leadership skills' or 'How to deal with life's issues' or something along those lines. I'm sure there will be alot of future parents or young parents taking this course & if parents these days new half of what the enterprise crew knew in how to deal with issues/pickles/problems/troublemakers for example .... the world would be a much better/safer/secure place.

Personally, I never had an issue with bullies after learning what I did from TOS. Reason, logic, diplomacy & if all else failed then get ready to drop your mitts. Millions of kids still do fall victim to these types though ......

Best of Luck!!!

It is interesting that you should instigate such a programme of studies. What it reinforces to me is that even after 40+ years this original show still not only stands the test of time, but remains a social and cultural event which has rarely been matched.

Your thread, alongside a number of others where we have discussed this longevity aspect - makes me realise something. There are few televisual or indeed other phenomenon quite like Star Trek. It is probably the only TV show that I have consistently loved for 40 years as a constant and reliable friend and source of amusement and inspiration.

None of the later versions have this magic ... it was just the right idea, the right people (the cast, crew and studio etc.) at the right time. These things don't happen very often. The only other comparable show I can think off (which has enjoyed global success as well) is The X-Files.
