51 Star Trek Innovations

From Lightning Cyborg Structures to Clothing that Communicates

— May 25, 2010 — Pop Culture
Although there are so many 'Star Wars' memorabilia out there, I feel as though 'Star Trek' has benefited society even more. By taking a look at these Star Trek innovations, you will find real-life applications rather than simply tributes and spoofs of the sci-fi television phenomena.

Furthermore, the fact that the latest Star Trek blockbuster brought much needed attention to the fading franchise has spurred the domination of Star Trek innovations in general.
