Patterns of Force

So is Star Trek progressive because it doesn’t go in on Nazis, or is that where it fails in its generally progressive tone? If this is a failing, is Star Trek’s greatest strength in just having these conversations so that, 49 years later, we can still talk about it and make it relevant?

“Starting a conversation” is often the pretext desperately grasped when a career based on being inflammatory starts sinking; is Star Trek any different?

Derek and I finally find an answer as to why Commodore Wesley is such a jerk. I’m satisfied with it, honestly. Also, I sincerely apologize for not slipping in a “shut up Wesley.” I am so, so sorry.

Are we wrong in not taking Kirk’s side on this thing? If Kirk isn’t necessary, he’s not necessary. Star Trek validates the arbitrary nature of fulfilling our dreams (like starship captain), but on the other hand, the only reason the M-5 isn’t a good captain is because it…doesn’t work right? Is the message that anything complicated enough to replace a human role as demanding as starship captain must also have human foibles?
