Re: DS9 S4: Homefront

I actually like this episode and found it very provocative even in the 1990's.

To comment the above point about Trek realism:

If you want a future with money and war, but still has hope for humanity, watch Babylon 5.

If you want a future without money and only the occasional Intergalactic war, watch DS9.

For realism basis, I think JMS was more prescient in Babylon 5 about the issues of a potential future for mankind based on our base issues of greed and desire for self-improvement. His two questions: Who are you? and What do you want? are immortal for that purpose.

For Altruism, I'd prefer Gene Roddenberry's vision of humanity being able to rise above our humble problems and become explorer. Roddenberry whole idea is "to seek out new life and new Civilization. To bodly go where no one has gone before." Those are principles far beyond simple human issue and prejudices.
