Can we learn from Star Trek?

Hello,
I am a film student from Denmark currently writing a large paper trying to answer whether we can learn anything from watching television, especially Star Trek.

For this, i have made a short survey, that i am hoping some of you guys would take a moment of your time to answer.
https://da.surveymonkey.com/s/53Z6J3Q


It would be greatly appreciated, and as i have often myself learned many things from watching Star Trek (mostly TOS), i guess some of you have too

Sorry, the only thing I've learned is we've had at least 10 people trying to direct us to survey monkey over the last 2 years.

Don't get Picard talking about how superior the Federation is after you've eaten a large lunch.

He just keeps talking in one long incredibly unbroken sentence moving from topic to topic so that no one has a chance to interrupt, it's really quite hypnotic.

I've learned that STAR TREK: The Next Generation satisfies to the very core of me. It's entertainment that sticks to your ribs, if you follow my meaning ...

Don't reach for that bowl of fruit.

Just sayin'.
