Re: Is Star Trek (the original series) aging really badly?

One thing people fail to remember is when Star Trek appeared in the mid-60s, most ethnic actors were stuck playing maids, porters, bellhops, janitors, cooks, or hoodlums and lowlifes. It was rare to see a black man as a doctor, lawyer, or other professional. And there were fewer ethnic actors available for casting.
