FedCon 30 | Vortrag | Neue technische Visionen bei Star Trek / Dr.-Ing. Hubert Zitt

From the very beginning, Star Trek featured technical visions that were pure science fiction at the time of production. Much of what was shown in Star Trek: The Original Series from 1966 to 1969 or in Star Trek: The Next Generation from 1987 to 1994 has already become reality: For example, we use tablets with touch screens, talk to computers, and “universal translators” get better every year.

For the series Star Trek: Discovery (since 2017) and Star Trek: Picard (since 2020), the authors consequently had to come up with new “gimmicks” to continue to excite the tech-savvy audience and, most importantly, to continue to inspire viewers. Hubert Zitt will present these new technical visions in his lecture and critically question whether they could become reality in the near future.

Lecturer: Dr.-Ing. Hubert Zitt
Duration: 60 min  -  The Lecture will be held in: german
Dr.-Ing. Hubert Zitt studied electrical engineering and works as a lecturer in the computer science program at the Kaiserslautern University of Applied Sciences at the Zweibrücken campus. In addition to his "normal" teaching activities, Hubert Zitt has become known throughout Germany (and beyond) for his Star Trek lectures.

Together with Gene Roddenberry jr., the son of the Star Trek creator, Zitt wrote the foreword to the book "Star Trek in Deutschland" in 2008. In the fall of 2008, he taught "Physics of Star Trek" as a regular course for an entire semester at a university in San Antonio, Texas.

In the meantime, Hubert Zitt has given more than 400 Star Trek lectures and has participated in several television programs about Star Trek. He has been a regular guest at FedCon since 2005 and was honored by his agency "5-Star Speaker" with the award "Most Extraordinary Speaker of the Year" for the year 2012.
