These Are the Voyages.......  

Posted by Alex Pendragon

I stumbled across a YouTube video of the last episode of "Star Trek - Enterprise", and it ended with all three of the Captains of the successive ships of that name reciting "These are the voyages......"

Ever have that heavy hand grasp your heart and squeeze? Like those times remembering when you lost someone, or you tried to stem the tide of tears some sad scene in a movie had unleashed?

It was such a beautiful scene, such a wonderful imagining, and to know that it is extremely unlikely we will ever, ever "reach up and touch the hand of God....."

No, we will never "boldly go where no man has ever.........."

We will all die here of our own hands.

For that, suppressed deep within me, I cry.

collectively we control our destiny. Individually, not so much.
