Inclusivity is reason for the longevity of Star Trek franchise, say new movie’s stars
Space: the final frontier. These are the voyages of the starship Enterprise. Its continuing mission: to explore strange new worlds, to seek out new life and new civilizations, to boldly go where no one has gone before.
The space adventure Star Trek was ahead of its time in the 1960s, when it broke ground by featuring a multi-ethnic cast and the first scripted inter-racial kiss on American television.
As the franchise celebrates its 50th anniversary this year, it seems fitting that it is again making headlines for progressiveness.
