Sorry, Trekkies, Gene Roddenberry's final frontier isn't really the utopia that it might seem. For all of Star Trek's progressive ideologies, there's plenty just below the surface that remains completely messed up, even hundreds of years in the fictional future.
When time is of the essence, and you're not too far away from your destination, most technologically-advanced humanoid species use their ship's handy transporter to get them from point A to point B. But there's a reason that characters like Bones and Barclay were fans of the less-convenient Shuttlecraft: they were adamantly opposed to being destroyed and reassembled at an atomic level.
The use of the transporter system is an existential nightmare. The ship's computer scans your molecular makeup, stores the pattern of your entire existence in what's basically a flash drive, then converts your mass into energy which moves you from one place to another. The energy is then reconstituted into matter into the shape of you…when it actually works.
The person that steps into a transporter is vaporized and then a near-perfect facsimile comes out the other end. And sometimes, it just creates a duplicate of you that turns evil and you kinda just have to deal. And then, you might also just happen to run into some terrifying subspace monsters. All in all, not cool.

To be fair, Magel Barrett (Lawaxana Troi) ended up marrying Roddenberry, shortly after the end of his already dissolving marriage. And he didn't "sneak" her onto the set. He cast her as the ship's first officer in the pilot.

The biggest problem of Star Trek was Roddenberry's lack of understanding of economics. Eliminating money would ruin society. Without pricing, there is no non-arbitrary way to utilize resources. Honestly, the Ferengi should have been the most powerful species in the galaxy. Nothing spurs innovation faster than the profit motive.

From what I understood about teleporters: you get vaporized and pretty much die. A copy of you with all of your memories will start existing. But you - you will stay dead.

Star Trek steals from other shows and acts like they made it up. An example is the Borg look and Ideals were stolen from the villain Lord Dredd in Captain Power. Captain Power was airing during TNG first season. The Borg didn't show until the 2nd.

I think the most ridiculous thing about this asinine video is the strange assumption that ALIEN societies ought to conform to the moralistic fashions of our time. Tell me, do you sneer like this at actual REAL societies that don't meet your every demand for moral perfection? And you wonder why older folks think y'all are spoiled and entitled. :D:D:D

Hold on!! You realize that Star Trek TOS was MADE in the 1960's right?? Naturally it would have a 1960's take on things. Sorry if that take doesn't conform to your sanctimonious and "enlightened" world view.

I will tell you what's messed The episode where that guy stole a rose for this guy to give to his girlfriend and the enemy ships lasers could do no damage to the Enterprise. Pretty much all the vehicles in Star wars low-tech I really doubt the death Star could hurt the Enterprise 😆

The transporter was a decision by production in TOS because showing a shuttle landing for every episode would’ve been too expensive. Later shows then just ran with the implications.

Most of these points are just ignoring the fact that these shows ran between the 60s and 90s. They're not perfect, obviously, but implying that any of this makes it "messed up" is just kinda ignorant lmao. Things aren't perfect in the future because people aren't perfect, anywhere. Yeah earth is a utopia in the star trek future, but that doesn't mean it applies to every other planet.

No, grunge, lets be honest, a planet run by women would be a complete disaster and you know it. That civilization would burn down on day 5.

So you think Star Trek was ment to portray a utopia? Interesting. It's more of a lesson on trying to overlay a Itopian society over a creative, innovative, unpredictable illogical species and how it will never become a Utopian society because of its human instincts.... maybe I'm this thinking it, or maybe that's why we have all of your conflict points because that's what its ment to show.

Way to research Star Trek, pick out the bits that are bad or can be used out of context and attempt to slander the creator who had a grander vision than your little ELvids channel, by going for the unfortunate and occasional mistakes he made in his personal life.

So his argument is that a fictional transporter does not function as he thinks it should? LOL! Secondly ST is about contemporary culture not the future!! These imperfections reflect the period in which they were made! This is why you don’t learn social science via YT!

Yes he called out Spock’s alien heritage because THAT is the point of no racism. You don’t pretend shit like nowadays. You just say what you think. Spock was unique in the ship, thus interesting. Why wouldn’t anyone point it out? Idiot race baiting channel.

Confusing intraspecies racism and differences between different species. Calling sexism for picturing women in their best, and their worst (as it's done with man). A poor analysis, at best.

I've surprised myself with how embarrassed I am for whoever made this video-the ignorance on display is staggering. That or they don't watch the series and/or don't have a basic history of it or understand character analysis, which you'd think would be a priority. It isn't even as complicated as being "a show of the times" as some have suggested. Quite simply, this was made by people who are trying to stir up meaningless shit; based on the pinned comment, the idea was to start a _Star Trek_ versus _Star Wars_ fan war, but given the talk of "progressives" in the comments, it seems some of the conservatives out there allowed themselves to be manipulated as well. Good job, guys. I rarely feel a ELvids video I watch is a waste of my life, but damn-I'd like those seven minutes back.
