Star Trek and the Law

Ok, I admit it; I’m a Star Trek (original series) fan.  Just ask me some day about how much Captain Kirk’s statement–“Not chess, Mr. Spock, poker.”–has influenced my life.  So I could not help but laugh when someone well acquainted with my fondness for all things Trek told me to look at Google’s home page today and I found this image honoring the series’ 46th anniversary.

But seriously, Star Trek’s influence on the law is undeniable.  Just check out this article, “8 Ways That Judges Have Cited Star Trek From The Bench.”
