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.

Sorry man, other than the transporter take, (and maybe the episode ‘Code of Honor’) you are way off the mark. You have a surface value take of most of those episodes/scenes. Other commenters have provided PLENTY of examples and explanations, so I’ll leave it at this.

There is one obvious problem with a transporter device that few people consider. What is to stop an unfriendly country (choose one at random) transporting a time bomb into the centre of government of your country? What is there to stop you doing it to them at the same time? The transporter is invented, and ten minutes later, civilisation has broken down.

Angel One is a full on disaster not because it's run by women, but because its society is powered by sexism, to the point that advocating equal rights gets you dead. We have plenty of similar male-dominated disasters on Earth. Also, eat a downvote for taking shots at Majel Barrett. She was one of Trek's best assets.

Oh for gods sakes... you realize the the writers weren't actually from the future right? They didn't miss the mark, they are depicting how people acted at the time. I once was at a panel where someone asked William Shatner why there was never any LGBTQ depection on the original series... He was like "Are you freaking kidding me? Do you know what censorship was back then!?" It's actually amazing how much Roddenberry and team were able to slip past the paramount execs without them realizing.

For you who live in a fantasy world, the utopia this show portrays is a fantasy. It will not happen if we live to that time. Racism and all the faults we humans have, will still be there a few hundred years from now. It is in our genetics. It is a part of us. Getting rid of it is very different than squeezing a pimple. It is more like eliminating blue eyes without genetic manipulation. IMPOSSIBLE.

It was an error that Starfleet hasen't lied at the academy. Warning about the Ferengi inst politically correct. Actual truth is offensive and should be banned. Starfleet personal should believe that all races and cultures are equal. No one is better and nothing is wrong. It's all just differences of opinion. Some like to steal, other like to live in mud huts and die of preventable bacterial diseases and other like to live in utopian future. Who's to say what's right or objectively better? Lying is the top quality of any society. Any society that accepts or even worse- admires the truth, should be banned, canceled and ridiculed. Having objective standards on competence, efficiency and reason are only there to oppress the various victim groups.

Nothing about that was "seriously messed up" if you knew anything at all about star trek you'd know the transporters were a plot device to save money on special effects so they wouldn't have to show the enterprise landing on a planet every week. And uhura addresse the racism issue when she said in my time we've learned not to fear words so there still maybe racial slurs but people have a more evolved sensibility as not to be so easily offended. And lastly genes vision of humanity in the future applied only to earth and humans. He didn't say there would be no disease, ever, anywhere or no poverty ever anywhere or no racism ever anywhere just on earth there wouldn't. People get hung up on the no money thing all the time...if there's no money why do the Ferengi have gold pressed Latium? Gene just said that humans wouldn't have an obsession with acquiring wealth. And lastly there are plenty of non corporeal beings in star trek, Q, for example, only appears as human so we can relate to him.

That last one is a bit of a misnomer. It is cannon that there are sentient races that do not look like humans. The reason being that after the events of Star Trek 4, all cetaceans on earth (whales and dolphins) are considered a people. They actually helped develop the universal translator; quite a few would later serve in Star Fleet. Unfortunately, the only time this is mentioned on telivision is in the TNG episode "Yesterday's Enterprise", an episode where they mention "Cetacean Ops". (Enterprise C gets stuck in the future in this episode). I remember that, shortly after the release of First Contact, one of the most popular rumors was that more often than not, the most effective ships against the Borg were those commanded by Orca (often called Killer Whales). It was thought that they had a very high survival rate. Both for Dolphins, as well as the humans serving with them.

It's funny that guy thing that women need a men to protect their rights as living beings. Was the character of kirk a playboy no he was more than that , a leader, a captain that would do just about any thing to protect his crew and ship , focusing on his dealing with women in the show is a bit below the belt. Sure there are macho men and wierd people in both fiction and reality. But I tend to judge a person real or not true there actions in the grand scheme of things not there few flaws, its these " flaws " that make us human. Star trek is not about utopian ideas its about a near utopia with still some flaws in it . If it was a depiction of a utopian universe, then why are there conflicts with aliens and even within Starfleet and the federation . The concept of a money less society is nothing new , I fact a money less society exists long before the concept of money became a reality. It was called the batter system, where goods and services were traded " one bag of apples for say 10 eggs.

Troi even confirms it (her powers were working that day). Also see Riker leering at literally every woman who comes on the ship, except baby Q who needs to be hitting on him because they didn't want to pay a younger rando crew member to be the object of a teenager's affection.

The majority of these are taken so far out of context that is not even funny like the one about the episode where "it was made explicitly clear that females cannot be captains because they're too emotional." That was Kirk trying to goad a mentally unstable person into showing out right there mental instability and the fact that they were not fit for command. And he was doing so in a Starfleet tribunal setting. If that's one of the things that Star Trek was about as this video claims, then how is it that there were female admirals, Commodores, Commander's, and yes even captains in other TOS episodes? Basically he was using a common lawyer's trick of upsetting a called witness to prove a point. I could go on and on, but I think you all get the idea.

The first point about the transporter being an existential horror overlooks one major point- our bodies are never defined by the matter that makes it up. Sure, you can say that it's a different person that walks off the transporter pad, but you can also say it's a different person who wakes up in the morning after you've gone to bed. You have new memories, new experiences, and a slightly different body, because eating food and replacing the nutrients, as well as forming the neural connections that preserve memories means your body is now slightly physically different.

RE: Transporters. The you that arrives in a different location is still you, because of Heisenberg Compensators. It is not a facsimile. In Quantum physics there is an idea that all atomic and subatomic phenomena are at some level the same. The atoms that compose my body are not the same as the ones I was born with and have changed numerous time. I, however, am still the same person. As far as I understand it, this is kind of the philosophical basis for transporters.They merely expedite the process of material flux that makes up all phenomena in the Universe.

But, first of all, this “Grunge” is all wrong about the transporters! The narrator described two kinds of transporters as if they were the same thing, anode THEY ARE NOT! The transporters (at least the good guy’s transporters) do not “FAX” people from one place to another! Yes, they do make a record of scans of someone in so fine of detail that they can be recreated or reassembled later. BUT, after the bodies of the people get broken down into energy, the SAME energy is TRANSMITTED TO THE NEW LOCATION, AND REASSEMBLED! That is NOT the same as recreating them at the new location! It may sound like a minor difference, but it is very important, because it means the “new” person is made of the exact same matter as when they started! Existential dilemma prevented!

Biggest of all, but not first, is that *Women are NOT FORBIDDEN TO BE STARSHIP CAPTAINS*! If you had paid attention to that episode and *the whole conversation*, you would know that the villainess meant that starship Captains are not allowed to have _Romantic Relationships with women_ as another part of their lives! She called that not permitting “Women” because she hated herself and blamed her being a woman for her failures in life!

Yeah it always surprises me to see how some people expect star trek to be perfect! But you expect gene Rodenbery to be the son of God! Well if you compare star trek to the shows of its own time you will notice that it is still the most progressive and creative of all. Compare captain Kirk with the idìots on I dream of a jeannie and Rodenbery becomes the genius that he was! I've been a scifi fan all my life and gene Rodenbery took things to where no man and woman had gone before! I loved Asimov but star trek was the first and the only vision of a future where people didn't kill themselves the planet and the future. Society needs 1984 and Aldous Huxley but hands up all who care for that kind of torture in the middle of a depression! Star trek was perfect in that it reflected all our problems and deficiencies without taking away our hope for a better future and I'm sorry if every episode and every character wasn't perfect. I'd hate to burst your bubble but the writers were human, not gods and they weren't really in space! I see the Klingons as passionate but in a worst case scenario the war mongering side of humans, the Ferengi as the business oriented, partly greedy side of us. As the story develops they all make peace and live in harmony with humanity. I loved the scene where quark says 'a Nargus should care about the common greed and not his own'! Now that's deep! If 45 could do that it might at least have been good for the US if not the Europeans!

I love how the creator of the video COMPLETELY missed the larger lesson. No matter how advanced we become as a species, there are always fallibilities and shortcomings that we may or may not recognize. To the channel owner and content producer, how about analyzing each episode based on its own story and the lesson that can be learned from them? Remember back in the 80s when popular cartoons like He-Man and GI Joe had a short "lessons learned" after each episode? The show literally handwalked the viewer through the epsode's story and what they could and should have learned from it. Maybe these need to make a comeback, since so many people are apparently unable to find and understand these lessons themselves. A perfect example is the episode you cited about Kirk wanting to spank the ruler. The ruler is portrayed as a spoiled and overly pampered individual who gets anything they want and throws tantrums when they are refused. The fact that Kirk refers to spanking as "an old Earth custom" is appropriate. Just because it is an old custom doesn't mean that it is still practiced. There are many "old Earth customs" that one could cite, such as beheading for crimes, ritual sacrafice for religious purposes, and involuntary indentured servitude based on physical characteristics. None of these are actively practiced anymore, but they are still a part of our shared history as a species. In case it isn't clear enough, I'll spell it out. From this episode, the viewer should learn that everyone should be aware of the consequences of their actions. Just because you CAN do something doesn't mean that you SHOULD. To ignore our history and forget the lessons learned from it only weakens us as a species and dooms us to repeat those lessons in the future.
