Description

Science fiction often drives innovation. Star Trek, specifically, has inspired the computer and the cellular telephone among other modern miracles of science and technology. One aspect of Star Trek that has even had books written about it is the Star Trek economy. In this episode, we're talking about just that.


"The economics of the future is somewhat different. You see, money doesn't exist in the 24th century. The acquisition of wealth is no longer the driving force in our lives. We work to better ourselves and the rest of humanity."

-- Captain Jean-Luc Picard (Patrick Stewart) from Gene Roddenberry's Star Trek VIII: First Contact
