Star Trek and Digital Wills

Star_trekEarlier on this blog, I discussed a recent law review article discussing the possibility that wills could be completely in electronic form.

Episode 24 of Season 6 of Star Trek Voyager entitled Life Line shows one of the main characters, thinking that death was imminent, creating something that would be cross between a nuncupative (he spoke the property disposition scheme) and a digital (a computer recorded the will) will.

Special thanks to Matt Lambert (J.D. Candidate, Texas Tech University School of Law) for bringing this episode to my attention.
