No, Trek was not always escapist. It used to be about the possibilities of the future. Our future.
Except for when it didn't.
Spock's Brain, Miri, Turnabout Intruder, The Way to Eden, The Empath, The Paradise Syndrome, The Omega Glory, Patterns of Force, A Piece of the Action, The Apple, Catspaw, Operation: Aniihilate!, The Alternative Factor are examples of silly or stupid Trek writing.
