Deep Space Nine's prediction of 2024 San Francisco is a bit closer to 2019 San Francisco than we would like. Tandarans holding Suliban in detention centers may have been an allegory to Japanese internment, but 2019 USA has it's own modern take. Join Ryan and Becca as we discuss why it's never a good idea to detain entire groups of people. We discuss Deep Space Nine episodes "Past Tense (Parts 1 & 2)" and Enterprise episode "Detained."

Anthony Montgomery on "Detained" via Memory Alpha Detained (episode) > Background
"I was really excited about that one. It had nothing to do with Travis being a boomer at all; he got to learn a lot about Human compassion. I didn't want it to sound preachy, because it's really easy to fall into that trap, but everything just comes across as being passionate. I love the fact that they had Travis be the one to have the debate about prejudice, considering that African Americans are prejudged more often than not. That was a really special episode for me, and not just because they gave me work to do."
"When Star Trek: Enterprise was first conceived, Travis Mayweather was intended to be a lieutenant, due to his experience in space. His rank was changed to ensign because the producers thought that having Mayweather and the older Lieutenant Malcolm Reed at a similar rank wouldn't be believable." from Travis Mayweather via Academic Kids
