      • Narrator: Warp drive, teleportation, cloaking, robotics, deflector shields and the holodeck. These are all a part of the lexicon of pop culture but how real are they? Will each of us one day be able to travel to a far flung planet in an instant or submerse ourselves in a make believe world that is so real that we can touch it, or to be able to interact with artificial intelligence? In the world of Star Trek all of these are realties of the not so distant future.
