Sometimes it really, really annoys me when Star Trek characters say “This is an earth custom” or “This is an earth thing”, when they actually mean “American”, not “earth”.
I get that its an American concept. But if you’re gonna pretend that the world is one big happy utopia…
everyone became america’s 51st state
even the russian dude was american
spock was the only actual foreigner on the show and was the butt of everyones jokes
the whole future is equal thing is bullshit propaganda fed to them by their government
or, you know, Star Trek is supposed to be commentary of the values of the nation and era it was made in with a sci-fi/western coating.
