    I suspect that the correct term is actually speciesism

    The thing about the Star Treks that got to me in the end, apart from the lack of originality in later series, and very bad casting (after ST and TNG), was the lack of imagination in the aliens. They were either humans with dodgy coats of emulsion, a stuntman in a rubber suit, or people with lumps stuck to their face. We can accept this stuff in the original where special effects were not much out of the fifties, but I was told that when TNG started the budget was a million dollars an episode. We still got swirly blobs in space! It wasn't until Enterprise that they tried to explain why Klingons went from being a bit blacked up with dodgy facial hair originally, to having Cornish pasties stuck on their foreheads like Warf. (is that why he was so grumpy? Because he never got to eat the pasty?)

    Some of the original episodes of ST actually hold up quite well, even after 50 years. Dr Who was still plastic sets and silver wellies when Saliva McCoy was being irritating.
