Re: The Official STAR TREK Grading & Discussion Thread [SPOILERS]
as for social commentary there is the very basic theme that no matter how bad were the circumstances you came from one can over come them to become something greater.
in a lot of ways it has been one of the basic themes of trek through the ages.
throw in the one about people can over come their differences and become something greater through working toward a greater goal and you have the other great basic trek theme.
I think the theme is really, no matter how well developed and good something is, theirs always some cynical bastard who is willing to pervert it to appeal to the masses and make a quick buck in the process!
