Re: In Defense of the Occupation

Considering how obsessed the West has been with the Otherness of blacks and Jews for centuries if not millennia, perhaps it is possible for an overwhelmingly Western tv show to have several direct and indirect allegories for both groups--not to mention other groups deemed Other as well, such as Asians. But that's right: Star Trek (or SF) is allegory until the allegory makes us uncomfortable. Then it's just all in your head.

I think we're done here, no?
