One of the strong facts about trek, aside from the ethical and social values is the technology which is more or less possible. So, given humanity's current progress, which one do you think we're likely to see? I'm hoping for warp drive (Alcubierre drive!), but we're more likely to see antimatter in high production, and weapons.

Universal Translator.

We're almost at that point. We've got the audio technology to discriminate among words, albeit haphazardly, we've got wireless headsets. Digital translators are getting better and picking up nuance and turns of phrase.

It probably wouldn't work independently, it would probably need a small army of linguists updating the word and phrase database, but I think we're getting close to that point.
