Still relevant in 21st century?

While it has a certain dramatic overtone, it's a very confusing and antiquated plot IMHO. It seems there are two "species" with one looking very much like Aussie Aborigines, "hairies" and the other European. What gets me is the overt discrimination and prejudice shown between these groups. The hairies are not particularly dangerous nor do they seem very detrimental to society as a whole yet are treated as slaves etc. It's not very sci-fi either IMHO and so not too interesting there. Might have been different if it had been made in the 40's or 50's but it doesn't make much sense in today's political and societal climate. I really like to think we have advanced pretty far in acceptance of others yet this series takes several giant steps back. A much superior and similar story line was shown in the eighties as the film "Alien Nation" which also spawned a TV series.
