Funny. I thought the point of Trek was to tell us something about ourselves.
Oh, right. That was TOS.
Funny. I thought the point of TOS was to tell entertaining stories in a sci-fi setting as a way of attracting viewers and, ultimately, making money. I also thought all the "using Trek as a vehicle to explore the human condition" bullshit was just that.
Gene Roddenberry would disagree..
"[Star Trek] is my social philosophy, my racial philosophy, my overview on life and the human condition."

But what did he know about it's point? He was just the creator after all.
It also provided for him and he was going to pander to those that spent money on it. Just look at the IDIC symbol.
