Re: "Plato's Stepchildren:" Kirk-Uhura Rape Scene?

"The first interracial kiss on television" fits the narrative that has been used to sell the Franchise for a while. Of course, it wasn't the first (other posters have covered this previously) and the actual context of the episode, as noted here, isn't nearly as progressive as the claims of the show being ground-breaking suggest.

But, print the legend.
