Star Trek Today: LCARS in the house

Today we received a YouTube video that we do not want to withhold from you. The video is a little older, namely 12 years old, so some of you may know it. It was published by Daniel Springwald and embodies exactly the spirit of "Star Trek Today". Mr. Springwald has done a remarkable job that deserves the highest respect.
