Re: Roddenberry's Worst Ideas

Ok, horatio83, sonak and stj, you have repeatedly derailed this thread from its original topic towards today's politics with a tenuous link at best to what was being discussed at the time. I realise that contemporary examples are sometimes necessary to make a point but you went way beyond that more than once. Try to stay on topic. You, horatio83, have been cautioned against that already and more than once so I'd suggest you cut it out.

If anyone feels the need to have a discussion about left-wing vs. right-wing, libertarianism, economic theory of the 20th century and identity politics, feel free to do so in Miscellaneous or TNZ. I might even participate.


To get a bite more back on topic:

So what? The only Germans that we see on the show are nazis and I don't whine about it and pretend that Trek is somehow anti-German when it clearly isn't.
That's not true. In The Squire of Gothos there is a German science officer called Jäger who reacts somewhat indignantly at Trelane's assumption that he's a soldier. I always thought that was a nice touch.
