Vincent’s Comment: I love today’s Star Trek Problems for a couple of reasons. The first is that it makes fun of a silly and dangerous current law on the books in many states. And that’s what good science fiction does, calls out problems in our society in a new light. I don’t think Star Trek: The Next Generation did that as often as the original series did. Seemed like they were more worried about warp fields, tachyon pulses, and gibbly glops.
The second reason why I love this strip is the final panel. It’s very 1980s kids cartoon lesson of the day. Good for Geordi. He’s got courage a plenty!
