With Lauren on maternity leave, Larissa invites Ashley and Tavius from “The Mixer” to have an entertaining and intense conversation about how the heart of Trek can sometimes be in cognitive dissonance with its presentation of the Federation as a military style hierarchical empire. Is the Federation even a democracy? Is Bajor basically Puerto Rico? Do we want to see “Star Trek XVII: Fall of the Federation”? It’s a great time to come to terms with our inherent colonialism! Happy Holidays! 🦃
