Diversity: The stuff of science fiction.

  1. I love that you are so open to the idea of finding diversity in SF. Some people complain that ST and BG are culturally white anyway. That seems a bit harsh to me, given that in a military setting there are going to have to be rules and lines of communication for every one to follow, otherwise they would all die given the kinds of adventures these guys get themselves into.

    Besides, it might sound strange, but the fact that Uhura was not blonde meant something to me. If you’ve ever heard Whoopie Goldberg’s skit about the child who thinks nothing good or wonderful will ever happen to you unless you have long blonde hair, you will know what I mean.

    1. I’m hoping the notion of diversity spreads through more genres. The cast of Heroes seems to be on that same track, but like sci-fi, its story is so full of fantasy that it’s just sad that people can’t see it in their everyday lives. Or everyday shows.
