I'm watching the pilot episode of Enterprise and Zephram Cochran's doing the speech which eventually becomes the TOS and TNG voiceover. (I don't think Cochran's the same actor they used in First Contact, but then again he wasn't the same actor who played Cochran when he showed up in the original series.)

I'm laughing because they cleaned up the grammar for the Cochran version of the speech. "We'll be able to explore strange new worlds, and seek out new life and new civilizations. This engine will let us go boldly where no man has gone before."

TNG made it politically correct with "to boldly go where no one has gone before." But now the true forces of light have beat the powers of darkness.

For the first time in thirty years, the speech split no infinitives.

(Diplomatic Molly allows that the restriction on splitting infinitives is debatable, but is still overjoyed that Star Trek has finally complied with her wishes.)
