I loved when this competition was announced - it's such a beautifully tangible goal to aim for, with real uses in the field. I'm very excited to see what finally comes out of it.

Global appeal
I love that this is a global effort -- India, US, Canada, Ireland, Slovenia, Asia .... Clearly, the appeal of Star Trek has lived long and prospered.
