Don't you wish space technology was at this level already, gravity control, clocked spaceships, transporter etc.
One thing I do find interesting about Voyager is the interaction with the Borg. The whole collective, assimilation, it's like modern society, and/or the idea of the Illumanati - no one wants you to have individuality, no religion or spirituality, constantly supervised in the Collective, etc.
If you look around yourself at the general population, you'll see how we are very much moving towards being just like the Borg. We have people walking around with technology hanging from their body's, communicating through a vast network, the WWW that has one collective mind, medical advances integrating technology within our very structures of our body's, and it's getting worse and worse as time moves forward. In my opinion, this is leading towards what's mentioned along having the sign of the beast from revelations, that eventually it will be a matter of those that have fully integrated their minds into the collective and those that have refused.
Along space travel, it's been a side project of mine for many years, how it's done in theory is very simple, not at all that complication, application wise, surviving the trip is another matter, not to mention, where we can actually go, for we have no star charts that are of any use to us, ie. we'd be flying blind into random areas of space that may, or may not be able to sustain life., so even the recovered flying saucers that I know we have, are of little use to us even if we did manage to learn how to make them work in full.
I know, tangent there, but if you look at everything presented within the star trek saga's, the volume of things that started out as science fiction, are common place science fact today, this will include space travel.,
