From Dave Marinacio’s book, All I Really Need to Know I Learned from Watching Star Trek:
- Each person and species has the right to live their lives as they wish as long as they aren’t trying to take over the galaxy.
- Everyone has a role in life. Do your own and things will function smoothly.
- Whatever you are doing, answer a distress call. The most important time to help someone is when they need it.
- If you mess something up, it’s your responsibility to make things right again.
- The more complex the time, the greater the need for the simplicity of play.
- If you can keep your head in a crisis, you’ve got a fighting chance.
- The unknown is not to be feared. It is to be examined, understood, and accepted.
- Close friends become family, and family is the true center of the universe.
- We have found Utopia. Utopia is an endless challenge. In taking the challenge, we find ourselves.
- Be the captain. If you aren’t, groom yourself, dress the best you can, and don’t slouch.
- In conflict, there is information and growth.
- We are attached to the very things that harm us the most.
- Difficult choices expose how we truly feel.
- People are more important than the rules.
- When having house guests, change the environment to make them feel comfortable.
- End every episode with a smile.
