This is the "StarTrekVsStarWars.txt" file, created WED 2011 AUG 10 04:45 PM, revised SUN 2011 NOV 27 06:24 PM. Back in 1960, when I was a freshman in college, Tomlinson Hall at Case Institute of Technology was always crowded, standing room only, on Thursday nights at 7:00 PM. The original Star Trek series was playing to a crowd of engineering students. Much as I appreciated Gene Roddenberry's science fiction creation, I have long felt that he failed to address properly two issues relevant to twentieth century mathematics. I offer these two "episodes" to correct these omissions. Of course, I am not the writer Gene was, so some Trekkies may take delight in "improving" upon my stilted dialog. But I do intend to lay out the basic story for these "missing" episodes. 1. Mister Spock Does the Logical Thing
2. The Court-Martial of Captain Jean-Luc Picard
I found some material in the sandbox that I thought was interesting. If I can retrieve some of this from the history files, it might provide a forum for Star Wars fans, too. Isn't creative American literature a reasonable course for University study? 3. Star Wars Fans and Star Trek Fans Continue the Story (or Stories) The end.
P. S. I found out why the links to the "missing" Star Trek episodes did not seem to work, and fixed the problem. I had attempted to use the links within a "pre-formatted section. Once I put in a few more HTML tags, I got the links to work.
