Before I even started this blog, I would occasionally pose a SyFy Question of the Day to my facebook friends. Sometimes, it was directly related to what I was writing, and I really did want some input to help me decide what direction to take with the story. Other times, it was purely fun. Here’s one of my favorites, from March 2011:
SyFy question of the day: Trek TOS came out before I was born, but I grew up with and loved the reruns. What will the SyFy fans of the future write and dream about when interstellar travel is a reality?
Linda I would say it would be dependent upon the extent of the interstellar travel. In TOS days the next step would have been travel into another quadrant. In the TNG/DS9/Voyager era travel into another quadrant was still only possible because of, in DS9s case, a wormhole, and in Voyager’s case, a superior being flinging them to the Delta quadrant. I would imagine there would always be something more to dream of. Other quadrants, other universes, the potential for alternate timelines. Even traveling where you’ve already gone more quickly (look how much Earth has changed since cars trains and planes came along to get us places faster). JMHO
Al I think they will dream of meeting other intelligent life.
Shawn Quantum Theory is already here but if we have not mastered that at the time we achieve interstellar travel it will be next on the list.
I would love to hear what you think! Even if you are reading this post a year or more after publishing, I hope you will leave a comment with your own ideas on this topic.

A note about the photo. Thank you to my friends at Phase II who let me use it for this post! It is nice to love and be loved, and be able to ask “Hey, can I use this?” and get an answer right away!
