Re: Does It Get Better???


Of course I understand that Star Trek originally tackled issues like racism and sexism. But DS9 wasn't made in the 60's. Many issues that were extremely relevant back then, like racism, were not nearly as relevant in the 1990's. I'm not saying that racism had entirely been eliminated by the time this episode aired, but it wasn't an issue in the way it was back in the 60's.
Also, in your first paragraph you said that racism was only the backdrop of Far Beyond The Stars, and then in your next paragraph (the one I quoted) you stated that this episode was praised for its mess{/QUOTE} Honestly, ,I don't know what say.
I myslf don't understabd how someone can claim to understand why Roddenberry created Trek but is baffled by why this ep. gets praised.
