This is one of my short ones:
The original Star Trek series begins with a couple minutes of the episode and a short monologue by William Shatner. The monologue wraps up with “Its ongoing mission: To boldly go where no man has gone before.”
I just finished watching the 2009 Star Trek movie. At the end, Leonard Nimoy (as older Spock) delivers the same monologue with a slight change. “Its ongoing mission: To boldly go where no one has gone before.”
A minor change, but it’s less sexist. I also understand that the original meant ‘man-kind’ and I’m sure wasn’t intended to be sexist. Or maybe they just didn’t think of that because it was the late sixties.
**UPDATE December 9, 2013: When I originally wrote this post, I hadn’t seen any of The Next Generation or any Star Trek besides ToS and the movie.**
