7. Star Trek is known for showing diversity
The very first crew to set sail on the maiden voyage of Star Trek was purposely diverse from all walks of life. So, whose idea was it for Star Trek to be racially diverse? NBC or Creator Gene Roddenberry?
It was actually Roddenberry who was the progressive mastermind behind the show. Roddenberry was striving to represent a future that appeared to be more of a utopian style society.
Roddenberry was really into showing more unity among varied races and everyone getting along. He also wanted to use the TV show as a way to make statements about the current political and cultural environment at the time.
