Re: Enterprise Pic

A lot of Trek fans aren't enormously fond of actual science fiction and the speculation/projection/extrapolation that's part of it - witness the continuing howls at the mere suggestion of universal wealth or a moneyless economy in the 24th century.

I can't recall any wealthy people in the 24th Century Trek. The concept of wealth must be so far removed from how we define it now as to be meaningless to a current viewer But none of this either is about "real science fiction" by any means, it is about social commentary though and GR becoming more comfortable burying his political views into Star Trek...
