I started watching Star Trek in the early 80s when I was around six years old. Even as I grew older, I didn't realize how progressive it was to have a black man, Dr. Daystrom, as the Federation's top computer expert, and that's especially true when the series first aired in the 60s. As an army brat, it didn't occur to me that a bridge crew with a black woman, a Japanese man, or an alien was a big deal. Other than the Russian, who was our enemy at the time, the kids in my classes were white, black, brown, and yellow so the bridge didn't look weird to me. I just took it for granted that these things were normal. And when something looks normal, it's easy to forget that at one time it might have been called "woke."I cannot even begin to comprehend how someone can complain about Star Tek "going woke" except to postulate that they never wat he'd any kind of Star Trek, EVER. I'm not what one would call "leftwing" on most scales, but if you enjoy Trek you know that it's always been a progressive thought experiment: like, that's the whole point.
