You know if you believe we should leave our planet and colonize other worlds in our solar system and galaxy. You are a colonialist like 18th colonialism. You want to go somewhere and claim it as yours and have a reason why...Star Trek is all about colonizing other worlds thought-out our galaxy. The Federation is a colonial power in Star Trek just like the Klingons and Romulans. The Ferengi Alliance is more like the Hanseatic League in Germany. Here the Star Trek fans the imperial Star Trek... [SIZE=4]Similarities between "Star Trek's" Prime Directive and Postcolonialism[/SIZE] "Star Trek" is one of the most popular science fiction series. What does it say about colonialism and its effect on the native population? The Prime Directive’s failure to protect against colonial instincts is most obvious in the original series episode “The Apple,” where Captain Kirk and the Enterprise crew visit Gamma Trianguli VI, and find a society of scantily clad “primitives,” with no technology, living in huts. Just like the colonialists before him, Kirk thinks that he has the right to impose his way of life on the Feeders of Vaal. He takes the Prime Directive’s instruction to not interfere with the development of pre-warp cultures to imply that, if a culture is not developing, then he can do whatever he wants Second, Kirk’s actions are colonialism at its worst: he appeals directly to the Western values of creation, production, and thinking, and concludes that he has a right to impose these things on the Feeders of Vaal. But why do the Feeders of Vaal need to do these things? Their life is already as convenient as it can be. It is true the Feeders cannot have sex, but Kirk imposing his moral views regarding sex on these people is just as wrongheaded as Pope Innocent imposing Christian sexual norms on Native Americans. Kirk destroys Vaal and their entire way of life. This action will likely have the same disastrous result as colonialism.
