I have been a trekkie way back to the original.
In an introduction to the original series by the late James Doohan
He explained why they had to scrap the first pilot:
Gene Roddenberry’s wife Majel Barrett
had been cast as second in command of the star ship
The women in the “test” audience said “Who does she think she is!”
I remember that attitude
Back when women had no rights or status.
Women abused us for campaigning for equal rights for women.
Last century I used to tell people “We might be just living in a huge holodeck”
When the movie “The Matrix” came out in 1999 I received several phone calls saying
“You’ve got to see this movie”
And although -long long ago one of my lectures told me that I was an original thinker :P
This wasn’t an idea of mine.
I got the holodeck idea from Star trek TNG season six “Ship in a Bottle”
and be kind to non humans
