Re: Last Star Trek Episode You Watched

It's something you still hear in discussions (not here in my country but abroad). I chalk it up to not being well informed. The whole premise of the episode is flawed because it isn't very plausible that a cultural observer of the Federation would not only think it was a good idea to dircetly influence the society he's only meant to observe but also that the Third Reich of all things would be a good model to emulate.
Oh, I agree there. I love the episode (the Kirk and Spock moments are priceless), but the premise is definitely flawed. I wouldn't see the Third Reich as any appreciable example of a proper way to run a society, and that's as a layman. As a historian, I should definitely know better.
