INTRO POST: THE CAPERS UNIVERSE
the tag | the original fanfic

It was the year 2025, and you still couldn’t video chat from Hogwarts. Thanks to magical interference, you couldn’t even turn on a laptop without frying it (eternal gratitude given to the early-millennium Muggleborns who confirmed this). Beatrice Chang was who some might call ‘a genius inventor’ and, in the same breath, ‘a sugar-addled nutter.’ She was making a Muggle-Magic converter whether Fred believed it was feasible or not, and before 2025 was over, their unlikely crew would commit grand theft, skirt death thrice, break Hogwarts, and almost change the entire wizarding landscape forever.

You have to remember that Star Trek exists in two contexts, and while race and gender discrimination supposedly doesn’t exist in the Star Trek world, it’s undeniable that it exists in ours and therefore manifests in the other.

When 90% of the captains in the Federation are white dudes, one has to start wondering at what point should we start realizing that we are assigning our contemporary privileges on to a show that is supposed to be about progress.

Furthermore, identity politics are important in television because television doesn’t represent us. I once saw Avery Brooks, and someone asked him what the biggest change in Hollywood has been since he started, and he said that it was nothing. That he was still waiting for the change. That he was still waiting for Hollywood look like the world.

We need identity representation in the media because it doesn’t exist, whether you like it or not.

As such, Brooks’ position has always been interesting to me. In Star Trek, his character isn’t defined by race, as you sort of point out. Yet, the first thing we think about when we think of Sisko is that he was the first black captain. That should let you know how important these two contexts a show lies are. There is what it supposed to be, and then there is what it is.

Let’s face it. The original series of Star Trek was a mess of sexism and neo-colonialism, and TNG has more than a few problems smoothing over cultures to fit Federation standards, and then touting it as a good thing. Star Trek isn’t perfect because the people of today write it, and that’s worth looking at it. That’s why identity in Star Trek is important.

Working in hunger relief, there’s often discussion about solutions to hunger & food insecurity.

People are being all serious & shit, meanwhile I’m sitting there silently thinking “umm basically the solution is that scientists need to invent food replicators and they have to be free & easy for everybody to access so… basically we need to strive to become United Earth.”

Trekkie probs…
