    Do you think our future will be like Startrek or Stargate?

    In the future, do you think we will travel in spacecraft, through space at speeds that exceed that of light? Like Startrek or do you think we will travel by warp holes, through time and space? Like Stargate.

    Actually, Rafken, I think it's going to be more like "Soylent Green"

    Neither.  The human race has lost its chance to go to the stars in any manner.  Due to prolific breeding, fostered by stupid religions, resources that could be used for lofty goals are being diverted to cleaning up cr**** and feeding hordes of useless eaters.

    Look to George Orwell's "1984" for our future -- now in process.

    I think science fiction as we know it is an optimistic fantasy. Mankind will have used up all its resources, gone to war, blasted the planet bare, and eek out an existence eating one another and slowly dying of radiation poisoning long before our technology will advance to the point that it can offer solutions to our problems. Tech advances, people don't.

    I would like it to be Star trek, but sadly I don't see that happening...

    I personally think all of the above!  Technologically we could evolve our understanding of the greater sciences and secrets of the universe from the macrocosm to the microcosm. 

    The key point is the technology will only evolve as long as we do and if we accept that we can only or maybe last as long as our D.N.A pool will allow, or more importantly our own Sun then at some point in the future we would eventually have to face the ultimate truth, that if we want to still live we had better become masters of universe so to speak. 

    So space travel and deep space probing for habitual areas that have enough recourse to sustain life would now be a priority, think about it?

    Compare the rate at which we are technologically evolving now to say in another one billion years time, its just mind boggling and in another approx two billions years after that the Suns temperature would have increased so much that it would be probably impossible to survive on mother Earth.

    Think where we are now and try to imagine where we would be given those time scales, Stargates and space travel would be just normal or even maybe out dated who knows?

    Star Trek for sure! I love the concept of Stargate, but Star Trek is more reflective of reality in that humans continue to advance and refine technology and expand our sphere of influence through exploration and growth.

    Stargate could exist but would require previous civilizations to have existed to lay the network down for us to go out there - and from looking at history, I think humans don't need help to advance civilization and innovation. If it only took us a hundred years to build the technology to go from wagons to space shuttles and paper to an electronic based society, then how long will it really take for us to create faster-than-light technology? Even replicators are in the beginning stages of use (I wrote a hub about replication technology and how it is becoming a reality).

    Don't listen to the doomsayers and naysayers - I believe that some form of wormhole travel could be invented and I hope so, I would love to visit other countries without having to travel for 10 or 15 hours and hopefully for much cheaper.

    Keep in mind that people scoffed at the idea of flight just a little over a century ago, and science fiction has also inspired people to invent technology that seemed impossible before.

    I vote for Star Trek.
