Star Trek Heaven

Maybe "Star Trek" is heaven. No war, no disease,
no poverty, endless exploration, curiosity the passport
to the far reaches of the universe.

There is conflict, right against might. We save
our firepower for protection. We do not interfere.
There is a good deal of luck involved.

We meet the strange and marvelous beings
who find us odd, but amusing. There are
worlds not found as yet within the stellar dust.

The technology works — until it doesn't,
and then we make do, as always,
leaning on one another.

We beam down with a message
for those on the planet's surface:
"Behold, we bring you great joy!
Do not be afraid!"
