Chrystal: you seem well-versed in Trek for someone who isn't a big fan of the universe (unless I am misremembering). :)
Hush, you! *winks*
I'm not a big fan, no.
I'm not a big fan of Christianity, either, but I know the Bible inside out, and I know a lot of the history of the Christian church.
It's called "Know Your Enemy".
I actually do enjoy many aspects of Star Trek, not least the effect that the series has had on society.
Who hasn't said "Beam me up!" at one time or another? We've all seen automatic sliding doors, that were non-existent in the 1early 1970s. And I did actually own a flop-phone at one time.
The things that annoy me about Star Trek are: The Universal Translator, which is a "deus ex machina
" solution to why everyone speaks English with an American accent; Time Warp, which is a contrived plot device to enable Roddenberry to set stories in the past; Inertial Dampeners, which are another "deus ex machina
", this time to why everyone isn't smeared on the back wall when the ship goes from stationary to six times the speed of light in ten seconds...
Anyway... just because I loath certain aspects of someone's creation doesn't mean i can't enjoy the rest of it, hmm?
