But you've continually posted on episodes for the first two seasons like they were treating women as just pure pieces of worthless dirt. It wasn't great, sure, but it wasn't nearly as terrible as you're making it out to be.
The reason why this strikes such a cord with me in TNG and not many other series is, well, the obvious. Gene Roddenberry, the creator of Star Trek, was in complete control. The same man who preaches that in Star Trek, humanity is perfect, greed and hunger are a thing of the past and that we can accomplish anything. He'll approve an episode where Picard says we've eliminated greed and the need for possessions while at the same time using a contract to take half of Alexander Courage's royalties from the work he did on composing the original series theme. Some example he was.
