    They are. You don't like Hubble and the other Great Observatories, or the Mars rovers, or Cassini, or WMAP and COBE? Exploration in the spirit of Voyager is very much alive and kicking. We'll be sending a lot of missions to the outer planets over the next few decades, and should find out loads of amazing things.

    But I still don't get why look out in the space when we know less than 1% of the oceans down at earth.

    Thoughts of things going wrong with the V'ger program come to mind - was this the origin of the Borg by any chance?

    Back in my younger days, it was stuff like being the first to land on the moon that captured the public's imagination. I remember watching a delayed broadcast of the first moon landing and being thrilled.

    On a side note, did anyone else notice that Balok was in attendance at mission control for the Apollo 13 flight?
