Great Parallel!, 21 August 2011
I enjoyed this episode a lot! But in a lot ways it hit close to home. I
felt like it paralleled different ethnic groups in the modern era. The
easiest way to control a group of people is to turn them against
themselves. That's what was occurring in the prison. Star Trek is great
at taking everyday life themes And secretly transporting them into the
show, disguising them as Something else but in actuality they represent
a much deeper aspect of Our own society that can sometimes be hard to
look at otherwise. I wasn't a big Harry Kim fan but my favorite scene
of the episode was when Ensign Kim pleaded with the prison inmates to
work together to attain their freedom but none of them listened to him.
Great Parallel! So true!
