The Enterprise discovers an Earth-like planet that was devastated by a horrific degenerative disease and is now populated entirely by impossibly old children.

If you just change 'populated' to 'run by', then it's *exactly* what subby's mom told him to write!!

;P

The Game was also a pretty spot on prediction of our addiction to electronic devices.

I think Babylon 5's "Confessions and Lamentations" is more like today.

If that episode was Trek, McCoy would have found a cure. Instead the show had to dispose of all its Markab costumes. Bonus: Poor political decisions prevent an effective response to the plague.

DS9's Past Tense.

Another Trump term and we are practically there: Ghetto districts full of undesirables and enemies of the state, mass poverty and unemployment and famine and riots.

The promise of Star Trek for our time is that things get worse before they get better.

That episode was kinda creepy

Besides, we're in the Scorched Earth phase of Babylon 5.

I thought the Vidiians in the Delta Quadrant were the Worst Timeline for humans. Mankind'll live, but we'll be disfigured, all of us.

Yeah, the episode when the Doctor got lucky with the Vidiian woman is very applicable. Their society must be pure insanity. I wish we got an episode where someone ended up on their homeworld and the crew had to go down there and deal with all that.

I must admit I never held a gun in my life, but I do imagine it is at least as hard as holding a glass of water.

The episode "Think Tank" claimed the Vidiians Phage had been cured.

True, but I think it would have been fascinating to see the social and economic breakdowns and recreations of a desperate species.

He would never nuke himself or his properties, but anywhere would be fair game if he thought it would help him win.

Well, they got the kids mostly immune/old people get sick and die bit right (although in Covid's case, "old people" really means "old people" (as in 80+ years old), not just post-puberty).

Can't argue with that, but I'd love to see do so on Fifth Avenue to prove he wouldn't lose any votes.

...to see him do so...

\I really thought I read that through before posting. sigh

One of the episodes filmed on the Andy Griffith set.

Voyager's "Critical Care" is about a healthcare system that prioritizes treatment by social status rather than medical need.
