In this installment of our monthly film series, we will watch the classic Star Trek episode "Let That Be Your Last Battlefield." In this episode, Lokai, who is black on the left and white on the right, is a fugitive being pursued by Bele, who is white on the left and black on the right. This 1969 episode provides a strong metaphor against racism, and yet also says much about white liberal racism and what white ideas of a post-racial society are like. Join us as we pick apart one of the best known episodes of Star Trek and discuss the complicated relationship between race and science fiction.
