what does this have to do with Star Trek? Were there doors like this in one of the Inferior Star Trek Series??

No, but they are similar to the Trek doors. Sort of. Well, they're futuristic anyway....

These are cooler than the original star trek doors.

These are more dumb then star trek doors. The star trek doors we have now fail to work properly. So they are going to add more moving parts. I expect parts to not work and cause people to trip, get knee capped, stomach blocked, or better yet walk face first into it. It's an old concept if they can get it to work reliably it would be a miracle.

The star trek doors worked perfectly because there was an intern on either side pulling the doors apart manually during each scene!

And, damn it, that's what we need in our doors!
