The Evolution of Representation in Star Trek
Gene Roddenberry said Star Trek “was an attempt to say that humanity will reach maturity and wisdom on the day that it begins not just to tolerate, but take a special delight in differences in ideas and differences in life forms.” His vision challenged social mores, but couldn’t be fully realized in the 1960s. How has Star Trek evolved over the past 50 years, from the original series to Discovery? Has the representation of race, gender, orientation, ability, and neurodiversity matured? What would Gene think?

If you are attending in person and you have an iOS or Android smartphone, I recommend installing the Guidebook app for planning purposes. After you then download the Norwescon 44 guide data, you'll be able to search for me or any other guests. If you're not down with Guidebook, see My Norwescon 44 Schedule for where I'll be on Friday and Saturday.
