The Next Generation of Trekkies

I never actually qualified as a Trekkie. I've always been a fan, but never that obsessive. My son just discovered the original Star Trek series and is eating it up. I think that's great, since it's so much healthier than Digimon and the like. However, we watched the first seven episodes, and I was surprised at how suggestive Star Trek was. Much more so than any subsequent spin-offs. It's been years since I've seen it, but I'm pretty sure I didn't pick up on any of that when I was a kid. Our culture has certainly become much more puritanical since then, and definitely not in a healthy way.


  1. I also have been watching the original lately, and my problem with it is - the plot moves so slow.

    I'm Next Generation guy, myself

  2. It took me a few years to actually like TNG, but I got there. I still like the original better though.


Tell me something.
