Trex Sex

I've always watched all the Star Trek stuff, except for Voyager, which was just too unbearable, so I guess I'm not fully qualified to be a Trekkie. But it's always been a very interesting franchise of shows, both for its internal content and for its sociological significance, and it has plenty of the latter. The original series is outrageously reflective of its time, what with its hippies and smarmy civil rights messages, and as the franchise proceeded it took on more and more didactic scripts, teaching us to accept all sorts of trendy ideas, many of which were in support of sexual deviancy, either directly, or by analogy. I remember an episode of Enterprise where the Vulcans (This was several years before the time of the original series.) considered mind-melding a perversion. This was intended, I'm sure, to be an analogy to homosexuality. And since mind-melding later becomes a beneficial practice, we're supposed to glean from that a sympathy for homosexuality.

An aside before we get to the main story here: Despite the Next Gen episode that shows that all these humanoid races actually descend from an ancient humanoid race (Actually, all of life seems to have, which confuses the issue, because if Earth bacteria are from the ancients, I guess we're to believe that the universal human-like bipedalism, etc., is programmed deep into all of Earth's DNA.) Anyhow, despite all that, it's hard to believe that humans and Klingons and Vulcans and evidently other such species can interbreed, when humans and chimps can't, although the latter are many millions of years more closely related. Indeed, you can only suspend your disbelief for such things because you've been watching the show for years, and are used to suspending your disbelief in order to accept the fact that all these Vulcans and Klingons, etc., only differ from one another slightly anyway.

SEX, ALIENS, AND HOLLYWOOD BIAS IN STAR TREK BEYOND



Star Trek has always been a vehicle of the do-gooders, even before the term was known, but the themes of peace, respect, and friendship of the peoples, which have been running through its universe like a red thread, have resonated well with the audience in the time of the superpower conflict and Mutually Assured Destruction (fittingly abbreviated to MAD). After the cold war, cultural Marxism and political correctness fully took over the Enterprise, but the series still holds some value for those viewers who have been more intrigued by the looks of the latest starships, photon cannons, and intergalactic beauties.

Wait, did I just say that? Am I sexually attracted to female aliens? Yes, I am.

How perverted is that? Not much actually, because multiculturalism has given me a free pass. Multiculturalism actively promotes interracial sex and the mixing of the human races. This is supposed to be good. And sexual intercourse with alien species is nothing but pursuing the same mating behaviour on a higher, interplanetary level. So why should this suddenly be bad? If anything, it makes intergalactic philanderers more cosmopolitan, because their game is genetically more diverse. And diversity, we know, is always good even if we never learn the reason why.

Who would argue that the female aliens in Star Trek Beyond are not somehow physically attractive? Alright, you might mind these strange excrescences on their heads for which you would need to pull up a nightstand (hence "one-night-stand"), but it should not have escaped your attention that their faces always retain fine, feminine features. Apparently, the makers of Star Trek are sexist enough to believe that beauty even matters in alien females. Be honest, with whom would you rather be stranded on a desolate outpost planet, Jaylah or Trigly Puff?

After our liberal media has been doing its best to introduce us to the absolute normalcy of interracial relationships and race-mixed children, Hollywood is again one step ahead on the progressive curve and is exploring the possibilities of enriching our sexual life by encouraging us to date alien eye candy. And there is some logic to it. You cannot have the Enterprise hopping from star to star in the name of intergalactic peace, understanding, and all that brother-in-arms sentimentality, while its multiplanetary crew is night-by-night staying clear from one another like scared chickens. This is implausible.

So someone sharp on the production team finally figured out: 'Boss, we need to let them bang onboard.' Not just the visible minorities with the White women, as elderly Hebraic investors have long demanded from their productions, but now everybody with everything else. And why not? Most people, matching statistics tell us, meet their partner at the workplace. No study has ever maintained that this does not apply to other galaxies. If that partner happens to be an extraterrestrial with something under her hot pants which no human biology book has covered yet, who would be so narrow-minded not to be curious on a long space voyage?

So, after initially being baffled I was kinda warming up to the idea of watching crass alien bestiality on loveship Enterprise, but quickly noticed that something does not really add up onboard.

  1. Yeah, but if these are really do-gooders, then why don't they ever do anything good? Seeing Mr. Spock defer to Lt. Uhura to fix a panel on the bridge "because I cannot think of anyone more qualified", may be heartwarming to blacks in between court appearances and jail time, but its so implausible with Mr. Spock and Scotty on board thats its actually nauseating.
    Voyager is enjoyable if you mute the sound and only watch Jeri Ryan sporting a skintight uniform. All those technogeeks can drone on all day about how prescient Star Trek is with its salt shaker medical gear, and wooden phasers, but basically its typical sci-fi TV Drek. For all the wonderful pseudophysics of Warp Drive, the travel time of the USS Enterprise across the Galaxy is still far faster than Warp Ten the arbitrary speed limit of supposedly impossible FTL travel. Kirk and his crew get to the center and edge of the Galaxy in a matter of a few short weeks, but no other starships are available to stop menacing Alien Probes at Earth the Capitol of the Federation and Starfleet Headquarters. That's just bad logistics there, man.
    Sure the interracial romances are typical Miscegenation Propaganda, but how exactly was Mr. Spock even born if Vulcan blood is Green because its based on copper instead of Iron like his Mother's? Doesn't anyone who writes these shows know about the Periodic Table of Elements? Is Love so powerful it can transmute elements is it? How hippie dippie crazy are these people?

  2. Voyager was the worst of the Trek (TV) franchise. Had a lot of things going against it; It was supposed to be the 'tent pole' for the fledgling UPN a writing staff that was spread too thin (final season TNG, DS9 in it's prime, the mostly lackluster TNG films as well as VOY), and poor casting (Janeway, sometimes at her own admission, was a lousy Captain) with all the other males being mewling suck-ups.
    Their first attempt at ''eye candy'' failed, 9 years old in the storyline and often looked and acted like it. And with a boyfriend, who might as well have been named 'pedobear' - and usually served as comedy relief.
    The only strong character was the (holographic) 'Doctor' - no other name until the series finale - the only good episode of that star-crossed series.
