Being alive during TOS initial run, I still enjoy it immensely.

One unsavory memory comes to mind: No one else in the extended family was into reading SF, comics, gaming or anything like that. I remember watching "Day of the Dove" at my aunt's house, and her oldest daughter came by. She took one look at "Kang" and screamed at me, "Is that supposed to be a n-----?"

Yes, that n-word is just what you think it is. It does not offend me because I am not one, but I do not need to post it unnecessarily.

I tried to correct her mistaken impression by saying he is an alien, and she screamed the question again. I just said "No" and turned away from her.

Someone save me from people who have no imagination!
