Re: TNG S4: First Contact

One of the worst things people do is assume that, because others hold certain belief systems, those others are expected to act 100% in accordance at all times with those beliefs, as if nothing goes on in the life of a person other than his or her thinking, acting or breathing politically 24 hours a day.

I know liberals who are Trek fans and conservatives who are Trek fans. This may come as a shock to the mouth breathers, but some people actually watch the show for its entertainment value, first and foremost. A conservative friend told me he didnt care for what he called the "Dave the whales" message of Star Trek IV, but that it was still his favorite Trek movie. To claim "how could a liberal like X or conservative like Y" is also to attribute ao objectively one-way political message of every episode or movie served up. Is TWOK liberal? Conservative? I have read articles stating it is AN Ayatollah Khomeini allegory - be wary of people you exile. But even then, the film could simply be depicting the resurrection of an exiled leader without offering a political commentary. Or maybe the ending is "conservative" - Khan is defeated and the New World order restored. Can we leave this stuff in the dorm room where it belongs?
