As we all know, Star Trek not only has a history of repeating itself, but also a history of touching on themes of human rights, equality, and the laws that uphold them. L+L look at two episodes that focus specifically on the rights of AI characters, TNGâ€™s â€œMeasure of a Manâ€ and VOYâ€™s â€œAuthor, Authorâ€. They find some similarities and a LOT of differences. Does â€œMeasure of a Manâ€ hold up? (Spoiler: of course it does). Did the EMHâ€™s holonovel trial change anything for the Mark Ones? (Spoiler: maybe not?). Is it even fair to compare any episode of TV to â€œMeasure of a Manâ€?
