Anti-extropianism in the new Star Trek

Date: Mon Mar 05 2001 - 09:28:17 MST

Rodenberry was notoriously anti-genetic engineering. One of the classic
shows was about Khan, an enhanced tyrant, and Andromeda (another show based
on his musings) has a race of engineered bad-guys. Trekkies call themselves
pro-tech, but they're very anti any technology which does more than make
their lives more entertaining, it seems to me.
