Though if the stuff in Star Trek was real, that would be pretty epic. But don't live it now.

It was quite a bit subtle, I suppose, in that every character was supposed to be atheist:
"Roddenberry made it known to the writers of Star Trek and Star Trek: The Next Generation that religion and mystical thinking were not to be included, and that in Roddenberry's vision of Earth's future, everyone was an atheist and better for it."

What was your "Gateway" series? I saw latter half of Search for Spock on TV last Christmas, but it was JJ Abrams' Star Trek that got me hooked.
