The Irish Unification Of 2024


Sitting above is an excerpt from Star Trek: The Next Generation. Listen carefully at 00:41. An intriguing political foresight is it not? Such prescience and considered application of crass generalisations... How could anyone take offence?

I think this clip is from the episode where Jean-Luc and Co. land on a planet that looks really like Earth; an Earth with colour filtered grass and random smatterings of glaringly plastic foliage. On this planet they interfere in the politics of the local alien types, who look really like humans with rubbish prosthetics. Jean-Luc then saves the day with some derivative cod philosophising and a rubbish laser fight...
