"Star Trek Was Among the Best Franchises at Representing People With Disabilities—Until Star Trek Beyond"

By Marissa Martinelli

"But for better or worse, Star Trek has always made an effort to address disability’s place in a utopian future, and more radically, to suggest that it does have a place there. In an era where cancer can be cured with a hypo spray, characters with disabilities are not magically “fixed”; in fact, practicing genetic engineering is strictly forbidden after the Eugenics Wars. Instead, people with disabilities are accepted, their lives improved by advanced technology, increased accessibility, and progressive social attitudes."
