User Reviews

Fascinating!
26 August 2002 | by ORION THE HUNTERSee all my reviews

An intriguing program that aired on one of the learning/discovery-type channels. Top drawer physicists & cosmologists expatiate on the possibilities of developing phasers, warp drive, transporters, etc. Recommended for anybody with an eye to the future.
