A short while in the past, I had the pleasure of sitting down with the great Tony Black to speak about Star Trek and Vietnam.

The overall studying of traditional Star Trek tends to play up the present’s liberal credentials, to learn Star Trek as a utopian and pacifist sequence that was very a lot on the fitting aspect of historical past. This antiwar studying is supported by episodes like Errand of Mercy, The Trouble with Tribbles and Day of the Dove, amongst others. Nevertheless, the present’s politics are decidedly extra difficult. Like America itself, Star Trek was divided over the Vietnam Warfare, as mirrored in episodes like Friday’s Child or The Omega Glory, and most particularly in A Private Little War.

The consequence was a enjoyable (and concerned) dialogue, and you’ll hearken to it beneath or directly via Primitive Culture‘s homepage on trek.fm.
