Re: Wesley Crusher: Racist

I think the scene worked perfectly. I liked the benzite character, and there he is....wesley mirrors the audience reaction....hey! Its the blue dude....then the blue dude is like no, we are just podmates, and are physically identical...it is a subtle, light, brilliant comment on "race" relations that maintains the positive GR view - because wesley is not making the same error as a modern white man is known to - they literally are the same guy - it had to be the same guy for it to work - a genius bit of sci fi - i just wish there had been a Benzite regular on one of the crews - you know they be putting herb in those vaporizers
