Amazing–I didn’t know all those actors came from “Roots!” And I can’t believe there was an episode like that; even in the 80’s. After the “closely humanoid” black alien grabbed the white woman, you should have inserted that scene from Blazing Saddles, “Where the white women at??” LOL!! Strange that those completely human looking aliens were “closely humanoids” because in sci-fi, upright bi-pedal aliens ARE humanoids. Happy 36th btw.
You are exactly right! In sci-fo upright bi-pedal aliens ARE humanoids. This is so true and yet the “black” aliens are classified as “closely humanoid”. Also, thank you for the kind words about my birthday. I appreciate the positivity. Peace to you Tertiary Adjunct (Your name is hilarious).
Did anyone notice that the “coordinates” that were given for the indiginous people to beam up to just so happens to be an X in a circle IE the CELTIC SUN CROSS OF BA”AL ,Ever heard the term X marks the spot ?” as in MARK of the beast ? It almost seems that in a subliminal way they are cursing these indiginous people by making them beam on to that symbol.
great job lenon
Thanks Hoose. Hope all is well with you.
Great job, Lenon. Fantastic work. I think this is some of your best work so far. Thank you for your thoughtful and careful analysis.
All the best, Marty
Thanks for good info 🙂
I WANT PART 8!!
Part 8 may be here sooner than most expect!
Finally finished it 🙂
Great information presented. A unique one-of-a-kind in-depth look at the subtle and subconscious memes perpetuated in the Star Trek series. Truly original research. Thank you.
For the criticism, it is far too long in that it is laboriously explained repetitively, e.g. showing the clip to critique, then explaining/critiquing the subconscious meme, then showing it again, and sometimes, a third time to nail the point in. These many repetitions makes the whole series quite long, but nonetheless, it was very enjoyable and worth watching. I can see many people not being willing to spend such time and stick it through though. I have seen all the TNG, Voyager and Enterprise series and some of the Original and DS9 series, so I am familiar with the episodes, and this was a great exposure of the underlying messages contained therein.
Other than that, great work, keep illuminating. Good luck at the Free Your Mind Conference, knock it out of the park! 🙂
In regards to “Code of Honor” and Tasha saying “there would be complications” in which you propose those complications are that of racial differences, there is a change in the later series of Voyager which has the man-whore archetype of Tom Paris and the savage African Black Klingon archetype (carried on from Warf) of Belana Tores in which they become partners, and have a child.
I just wanted to point that out. The Star Trek franchise breaks some of their previous memes as they progress, likely in response to changing social conditioning towards racial differences in our society.
There are also other situations where I don’t necessarily agree with your analyses as I have seen many episodes and know many subliminal memes are not carried out throughout the whole franchise, but they are indeed valid for that time in which they were made. All around, great documentary. Thanks again!
Oh, and forgot to qualify that indeed in the Paris-Tores partnership there are still racial conceptions being talked about subliminally, in that Belana is worried about her mixed-race child having defects or being a monster and such, but she overcomes her delusions. Still, Voyager is not in the same line as TNG: they don’t have subjective conceptions of “complications” simply arising from having a partnership between a “white” and ‘black” person as is indicated in TNG. Similar concepts of “complication” are used, but not to the same degree, as one seems to frown on interracial relationships, whereas the other promotes it.
I am exhausted after watching, so I know that doing the research must be just as draining. The truth is we are in a world we do not belong, we are more than bags of mostly water. The time is now to transcend the physical and envelope the spiritual. My journey while in its infancy has caused me to take a deeper look into myself. Your work is much appreciated and I wish you and your family continued success, peace and positivity
