    STAR TREK The Iranian Ambassador to the UN had just finished giving a speech and walked out into the lobby of the convention center where he met U.S. General Patraeus. They shook hands. As they walked the Iranian said:
    "You know, I have just one question about what I have seen in America ."
    The General said,
    "Well, anything I can do to help you, I will."
    The Iranian whispered,
    "My son watches this show called Star Trek and in it there is Chekhov who is Russian, Scotty who is Scottish, Uhura who is black, and Sulu who is Japanese, but no Muslims. My son is very upset and doesn't understand why there aren't any Iranians, Iraqis, Afghans, Syrians or Pakistanis on Star Trek."
    The General laughed, leaned toward the Iranian ambassador, and whispered back,
    "That's because it takes place in the future". :tongueout:

    Iran: We have us the bomb!

    Us: We have transphasic torpedoes.

    Iran: We are always in the stone age compared to the filthy infidels!

    Thats their goal. Join or be destroyed.

    I took History of the Middle East in college. The instructor was an expat from Iran who worked for the Shaw before the overthrow. He made that point very clear. The radicals have no respect for the Koran. They are blinded by the dream of a single Islamic state with no opposition or decent.

    Roddenberry didn't care much for religion in general. None the less ST was prophetic.

    No, because the Borg are super technologically advanced. Muslims are more like the Ferengi.

    Actually the Borg ref is not far off. As I recall the Borg TOOK tech from those they absorbed to killed. They take the info, tools and use them to absorb more. We have basicly given them the tools...

    Klingons are Feudal Japanese. Cardassians are Chinese. Ferengi are anarcho-capitalists.
