This is one of those quick meme/link type blogs. I saw someone post the below picture:
And then I saw the below comment in the comments about it:
When the crew of the Enterprise had a problem with their government, they filed a complaint and hope their careers don’t get trashed. When the crew of B5 had a problem with their government, they seceded.
It made me think about how those two different attitudes might reflect the political sentiments of their era. I wondered if B5 might more accurately reflect our age’s attitude than Star Trek.
Which led to another reflection: Even with all the popularity of the new movies, I don’t think Star Wars reflects our current political mentality. But how about Firefly? Now that might be in the running. How about any of the Stargate franchises? Closer, but I still think B5 might be the best current match.
What do the rest of you think? Anyone interested enough to comment?
That’s all my thoughts, so to lengthen the post a bit, let me add some good quotes/clips from B5:
