I agree. Science fiction is a source of ideas for the advancement of science. There are a lot of little things that have entered our lives and have become familiar.I find that SF shows, TV and movies, usually contain interesting ideas which may have/could have an economic implementation today. E.G.: I still have a "Flip Phone" the concept for which is from the original Star Trek TV series. Actually, I don't expect my oldie phone to get me "beamed up" to some exotic place, but one can always hope for upgrades; so I'll keep it for a while.
I have seen Star Trek (the original series) for the first time in adult age and after having read almost all the best SF literature, so my opinion is quite different.I suppose it is a bit unfair to suggest Star Trek as they were made so long ago, and I do remember enjoying them several decades ago.
