Re: 'Space Patrol Orion' West German 1966 TV series & ST:TOS

As far as I know, Orion came before Star Trek.

And they had high ranking female officers commanding starships and giving McClane orders loooong before Star Trek ever thought about that one.
Yet at the same time, the society depicted in that show was much more militaristic. Aliens are always enemies, and there were also "colonies" of people who disagreed with the government... think about that what you will.
