Happy Birthday, Star Trek: An Ode to Growing Up Trekkie

On this day in 1966, Star Trek (now known as The Original Series, but back then it was just Star Trek, because who woulda thought, you know?) first aired on American television. I didn't come along until thirteen years later, and didn't start watching Star Trek until about eight years after that. But once I sat down to watch "The Trouble With Tribbles," I was hooked for life.

Star Trek: Discovery Changing Roddenberry’s “No Conflict” Mandate. That’s Okay, So Did Roddenberry.

Gene Roddenberry, creator of Star Trek, had a very specific vision of the future. By the time Star Trek: The Next Generation rolled around, he insisted on a story mandate: the conflict can never be between our main characters, because in Starfleet, petty squabbles are a thing of the past. Which is weird, because on the Original Series, Spock and McCoy were all about petty squabbles, and Scotty would punch you in the face if you trash talked about the Enterprise.

Racists and Sexists Hate On Star Trek Discovery‘s Diversity Even Though It’s Still Unbalanced in Their Favor

It's not even that serious, you guys.

It always makes me laugh whenever the very people who complain that "liberals are too sensitive," or that we're seeing injustices where they don't exist are the first people to pitch a fit at the slightest hint that maybe white, straight, male, cis, able-bodied, straight-sized people aren't the only people in the world.

There was, of course, that Handmaid's Tale sketch that deftly addressed the issue of male privilege, and there was the Star Trek parody above, which shows us a "lost" episode of TOS with Pine doing a killer Shatner impression. However, the sketch also highlighted a huge issue with SNL itself. Where the hell are the Asian cast members, and who was that dude playing Sulu?
