Star Trek

I have been rewatching some of the Star Trek Next Generation episodes recently. I had forgotten how annoying and inaccurate the opening of that show was with the comment “to boldly go where no one has gone before” where there wasn’t a single show in which they went anywhere without meeting someone who was already there. At least the original series used the comment “to boldly go where no (hu)man has gone before” and they did often go to places where no human had previously visited. Even the original show never went where no one had gone before because there were always aliens there already in the shows that didn’t already have humans there. A show in which they went somewhere where no one had gone before would be a very short show because there wouldn’t be very much that could happen on that show apart from the crew going crazy due to having no aliens to interact with.
