Here's my think-show me humanity becoming better. That is where TNG lost me completely. They already assumed they were better and could look down on past humanity with no measure of compassion or awareness of what may have possibly driven their ancestors. It was pure contempt. I have a firm belief that humanity can grown, can change and can become better. I believe that more with all of the work I do, and not because of a show tells me so. I'm not cynical about humanity. What I am is not willing to simply buy in to utopian stories without the how. Show me how, show me what humanity does to become better rather than assume it will all happen. Show me the struggles, show me the values, show me what makes it worth. Show me it can be challenged and endure.
