Nicolas Bourbaki

From Preface to the Third Edition of Galois Theory by Ian Stewart
Nicolas Bourbaki is the pseudonym of a group of mathematicians — mostly French, mostly young — who tidied up the mathematics of the mid-20th century in a lengthy series of books. Their guiding principle was never to prove a theorem if it could be deduced as a special case of a more general theorem. To study planar geometry, work in n dimensions and then let n = 2.

Mathematics: is it the fabric of MEST?
This is my voyage
My continuous mission
To uncover hidden structures
To create new theorems and proofs
To boldly go where no man has gone before

(Raumpatrouille – Die phantastischen Abenteuer des Raumschiffes Orion, colloquially aka Raumpatrouille Orion was the first German science fiction television series. Its seven episodes were broadcast by ARD beginning September 17, 1966. The series has since acquired cult status in Germany. Broadcast six years before Star Trek first aired in West Germany (in 1972), it became a huge success.)
