Re: New Trek Series Coming in 2017

Paul M. - Mon, Nov 2, 2015

Just like people who take the Bible purely literally, you apparently have failed to appreciate the allegorical nature of SNG. The reason I love this series is its rich and imaginative symbolism of human consciousness and boldly going beyond the confines of what is known at present.
Each member of the crew embodies a facet of our personality/consciousness:
Riker - our libido
Troi - our intuition
Georgi- our scientific, mechanical abilities
Worf - our warrior nature
Data - unlimited knowledge
Crusher - our healing abilities
Q. - the unpredictable limitless possibilities in the Quantum Field
Picard - the aware ego that needs to integrate the entire "crew"
The Prime Directive - a reminder that we have no right to perpetrate on others, even if we think we know better
The Enterprise - The vehicle for our journey through life

Now, Paul watch any episode and suspend your judgements and dive a bit deeper. The people putting this series together really knew what they were doing and that IMHO is why it is such a treasured classic.
