What i noticed was that during themiddleto late sixties they had a show called star trek with aRussianhelmsman aJapanesenavigator and a black woman in the cast. All very controversial. Is this the reason why it wasn't picked up at the time? Was america not ready for such a cast? I think so. We all know that the US is well known for it's racial problems.
So just imagine your a 45 five year old man with your wife baking cookies in the kitchen then a new show begins Hey this is neet. A sci fi show. Hey honey a black woman oh my aJapaneseactor. Wife comes over and says what is this for kind of show. I don't know. oh my god aRussianman honey turn of the television set. I don't wan't that kinda ofridiculousfilth in my small mindedlittleworld. But his son secretly enjoys the adventures of the entire cast and soon he begins to see them all working together for a common goal. He let's his hair grown and rebels against the strict rules of his time. Because the future might be better and we're all humans. especially in theworldof star trek with so many species.
