Star Trek has stood for decades as a staple of pop culture. Whether you are an original William Shatner fan or the J.J. Abrams movies, star trek has influenced the whole of our lives in some way.
Even if you didn't grow up watching Star Trek after school, our culture has drawn so much inspiration from the original show that we can still see it daily. Not only are die-hard trekkies trying to make daily use of the sci-fi tech, either.
The modern cell phones that we use every day were designed with the Star Trek communicator idea in mind.
