Victor Lundin died June 29th 2013.
He was the very first Klingon ever.
Television history that.

All this means is that they designed those props and they get credit for that...... they weren`t functional so the did not create them !

Should read "Ahead of its time."

Not "Ahead of it`s time."

It`s means `it is.`

Its is the possessive.

You`re welcome.

@Adcro: Agreed. I was wondering about that myself. Why not 1998 or whatever?

HowStuffworks published a nice list of some Star Trek technologies that already are available.

I`m convinced GR had a time-machine...or maybe he was an alien. How else could he know?

I don`t think we had flip-phones in 1973.

I just don`t think googles will catch on big.
I may be wrong, but I don`t see it.

What I`ve read is that they can do more by connecting to your phone via Bluetooth. You can get directions, weather, etc. I`m not going to find out anytime soon with the price tag they`re sporting.

Freddy, might be a bit of a stretch, but google glasses are only good for games {or watchign porn in business meetings} so... same thing in essence.

I`d debate you on the Google Glasses/"The Game" issue. The game was self contained, it didn`t access outside information like the control glasses in DS9. The game headset was more akin to virtual reality glasses, and still totally cool. I just don`t think they`re the same as GG.

1966 - Bones & his hypospray. Injections without needles.

Scotty predicts Transparent Aluminum

Today - transparent aluminum armor or aluminum oxynitride (ALON) as it`s more commonly known. ALON is a ceramic material that starts out as a powder before heat and pressure turn it into a crystalline form similar to glass. Once in the crystalline form, the material is strong enough to withstand bullets. Polishing the molded ALON strengthens the material even more. The Air Force has tested the material in hopes of replacing windows and canopies in its aircraft. Transparent aluminum armor is lighter and stronger than bulletproof glass.

Roddenberry was a genius. Quite a few of the sci fi writers really had things pegged, but he was at the top of the list.
