Me: *just knitting* My brain: the easiest way to tell that Star Trek was written by white people is they say 'where no one has gone before' but like 90% of the planets they go to are inhabited

Y'all, I know what's meant to be said. I know "oh they mean humans" or "oh they mean the Federation." What we accidentally say and don't realize we're saying? It matters. Anyway, before you lecture me on Trek basics please give me your status on Garashir.

Watching white nerd boys fall all over themselves to correct me so they don't have to examine the displayed unconscious biases in a 50 year old show is like Really awkward, y'all. Really really awkward.

Read this don't know if true, certainly not good. Earlier no minorities in main roles because featuring porters or maids would be demeaning and bankers, lawyers etc. would look unrealistic to white audience.

My good friend has called it my fascism-in-space fave once or twice. I do think the Trek Renaissance shows are deconstructing Golden Era Trek's premises, especially the Federation as the Best Thing Ever... but of course, there are elements of the fandom who haaate it.
