This poem was written in Matt's honour and for his 80th birthday by Janice Dickenson. It was also read at his funeral in 2003. Gene Roddenberry died in 1991. These guys have reached trekkies/trekkers across the world and we owe them a great debt. Thankyou Walter and Gene for infecting us with the happy spacebug.
And with gifted hand and vision
came what all the world does recognize,
as the most famous spacecraft ever built ...
the Starship U.S.S. Enterprise
That along with other planets
you created and much more,
you have boldly taken all mankind
to where no man has gone before.
Live Long and Prosper Trekkies!
