^ Actually considering how history repeats itself. Star Trek has often been juxtaposed to our lives, for example the original series Klingons being Russian in the cold war (if I'm not mistaken).
Sci-Fi doesn't end there, because these wars, conflicts and tensions repeat and appear over and over throughout history so it can always be a subject of comparison and relevance.
We're humans and are main flaws seem to be persistent, so the juxtaposition on real life can be done over and over for many different incidents.
Don't you guys love Sci-Fi
