"Star Trek" shows a vision of the future that we can certainly get behind. It's a universe where many can choose their own paths, sometimes as they literally colonize new worlds. For the most part, people of many cultures work peacefully together (except for those pesky Klingons and later on, the Romulans... and Borg).
But can we embrace that idealism and make our own lives better, immediately? Based on a Reddit thread that recently caught our attention, we sure think so. By thinking like the crew of Captain Kirk ("The Original Series") or Captain Picard ("The Next Generation"), we argue the tools will help you retire early. How, exactly? Read on for the finance-focused, science fiction wisdom.
(By the way, we chose ToS and TNG as these are the most familiar among readers, but if you disagree with us -- or have wisdom to share from any other series -- we'd be glad to hear it in the comments!)
