Re: Roddenberry's Worst Ideas

Chekov was mainly used as a joke, Picard seems more like a French guy who is into British stuff (Shakespeare, black tea) to me and Chakotay's Indian episodes sucked badly. There was this religious nonsense with the protection animal or whatever and Janeway the scientist went along with it? This was indeed political correctness at its worst.
But in general I agree, you are right and I am wrong, Trek does indeed often play the identity politics game.
