Faith of the heart: Star Trek Enterprise Opening Song

I know, I know. Nobody likes Trek...

"Enterprise" is the latest series to carry the torch. Like many others, I was surprised by the switch to a song instead of a tune. By the fourth verse, I was won over.

"It's been a long time, getting from there to here.
It's been a long time and my time is finally here."

This perfectly rounds it up how humanity discarded their violent ways and embraced spaceflight as one united race. Yes, the creator had an unrealistic dream - a peaceful human race. But that's what dreaming is all about, isn't it?

If you pay attention to the video, you'll note several historical milestones. Made possible by dreamers.
