I don’t know if you have seen it, but the new Star Trek TV series, “Star Trek Discovery,” is an extraordinary piece of entertainment.

Let me go a step further: the sixth episode of the new series’ first season may just have been the best single episode of any Star Trek TV series that I have ever seen. And I have seen them all, first run, going back to the original in the 1960s.

(Yup, I’m that old.)

ETHAN SIEGEL podcast excerpt: “Star Trek represented a freedom from want, a freedom from chronic disease, a freedom from suffering. And it empowers you: once you have these freedoms, you can live your life and explore and learn for the betterment of everyone. It was an altruistic vision of what humanity could become at our best.”

I tell you this because the timing seems perfect to discuss Ethan Siegel’s fascinating new book, Star Trek Treknology: The Science of Star Trek from Tricorders to Warp Drive.

While not the first book of its kind, Treknology is a gorgeous, well-researched and sharply written exploration of where we actually stand on technology to take us where no man has gone before: from transporters, impulse engines and warp drives to holodecks, replicators, and tricorders, the future is closer than ever.

If we can dream it, there is now or will be soon a scientist who can build it.

So if you love all things treknology, check out this book. And don’t miss another episode of “Star Trek Discovery” either.
