It's blasphemously delicious!

I don't know how to follow simple naming systems. I apologise to the world for my incompetence.

Theology is behind science fiction on this one. A being that invented time and was somehow beyond it would see time as a big ball of wibbly wobbly timey wimey stuff.

Everything is behind science fiction because science fiction is usually about the future.

Here's something that isn't behind science fiction: racism. There are never any black people on board these starships

Does that mean that racism is in front of science fiction?

Good job ChaoticBrain, you found a small handful of black people from predominately white shows. Consider racism solved.

Speaking of racism that Mary sure is white for a Hebrew woman from the middle east in Roman times.

I think his point was that there are in fact black people on starships in these shows, not that racism doesn't exist.

EDIT: Also, how did you miss Uhura? Incidentally the first interracial kiss on American television was on TOS, so not all sci-fi is racist. Although Star Trek hella is sometimes.

Personally I won't be satisfied until I see an all Tofalar science fiction cast.
