The Future of… 10 – Starship Enterprise

Scott Douglas Jacobsen & Rick Rosner

July 8, 2017

[Beginning of recorded material]

Rick Rosner: Will we have a future utopia or dystopia where everyone is dirty or hiding underground? Either a utopia or a dystopia will be—the future of human stuff is going to be altered by our ability to alter, and the will be influenced by the convenience and power of altering ourselves as we continue to merge with technology.

Scarlett Johannsen is part of a movie called Her is like a movie in the future, where things are just slightly different than reality. But that’s about as far as people are going to consider these things believably.

We will not have the Starship Enterprise. I talked about the idea of half-tronauts, who will get blown up in the war, and then those people will be the astronauts because you don’t need the lower half as much. You won’t have that. But the entities who will pilot our spacecraft will not be purely human.

Unless, those spacecraft are launched in the next 50 or 80 years from now. The grand exploring expeditions that set off for Alpha Centauri and other nearby stars won’t be staffed by people who staffed the Starship Enterprise. Everyone will be super modified.
