Star Trek and Socialism: A Fantastical Love StorySubmitted by Sheepherder911 on Sun, 01/05/2014 - 19:07
I always wondered what the monetary system was in Star Trek. They never seem to exchange anything whenever they order those "Double Klingonian Brain-Numb" Shots at the Galacti-bar. Also, who's job is it to clean up after Commander Ryker when he's finished "using" the Holodeck?
Red Shirt #1: "Who used the Holodeck last, it's all....sticky and humid in here?!?"
Red Shirt #2: "What does the Log say?"
Both of them: "...Ryker"
And then they die.
Still one of the best shows ever written, but it's confirmed...Captain Kirk and Captain Picard were Socialists.
