. Gene Roddenberry decided that the best way to create a worthy adversary for the TNG crew was to take all the elements he didn't like about humanity such as greed, imperialistic attitudes, unrefined behaviors, uncaring morals and sexist views (.....starting to sound like Gene actually) and dial it up to 11. The end result was the Ferengi, a race so ridiculous that their premier episode was hated by everyone involved. ... Something else had to be done.
Why anyone would think that a worthy adversary would be characterized as "someone you really don't like" is beyond me.
Fox News Channel gets very good ratings with their depiction of a universe in which Muslims, secularists, immigrants and homosexuals are coming to destroy us all.
