Fast Company recently featured our work with The Roddenberry Foundation on their $1 million Roddenberry Prize.
The Roddenberry Foundation, set up in memory of Star Trek‘s creator Gene Roddenberry, aims to take us a little closer to that vision. The nonprofit seeds innovation projects through catalyst grants, a fellowship program, and now through a $1 million challenge.
The world would be a better place if it looked like Star Trek, still one of the most progressive, utopian TV shows ever made. Race and gender would be irrelevant. Religious conflict would be a thing of the past. Science and rational inquiry would solve our biggest problems, from food to transportation (a “food replicator” may produce disgusting food, but it might help with projected future shortages).
