В своих славославиях Обаме проф.Коул поставил Стар Трек на уши и дошел до того, что сравнил Обаму с Ворфом, а Ворфа - с неоконами. При этом он проявил полное незнание DS9, так что треккеры в комментариях страшно возмутились.

Для знающих полит.английский и Стар Трек получилось довольно интересно. Во всяком случае, не так примитивно как история с путинскими стерхами: помимо переживаний, требуется еще и умение работать с фактами :)

In Startrek, Klingons are culture/race/ethincity, not just a political faction. So, comparing them to the neocons is actually racist.

Worf is an ethnic Klingon, he was raised by humans. He talks a lot about his being Klingon, but fully enjoys Federations’ equality policies, so he is treated as everybody else according to his merits, not as a Klingon.

And yes, of course, as it was already mentioned, Sisko is a great black captain in DS9, he has none of Worf’s identity problems.

As for the neocons, they are ultra-capitalists, but Startrek is anti-capitalist. For example, DS9 Ferengis are a satire on capitalism. So, there can be no neocons in Starfleet.
