How do you plan to implement this protocol, Doctor? Mister Tuvok doesn’t have a security team, both the brigs have been destroyed, and with the internal force fields offline you’ll have a hell of a time keeping me confined. You’d better grab a phaser, because before I give up command you’ll have to shoot me.

Example of Star Trek Addressing Social Issues - Mental Illness 

This scene got me right in the gut when I first saw it. It was revealed earlier in the episode that Garak suffers from extreme claustrophobia, experiencing a severe attack just a few scenes before this one. I was already expecting Martok and Worf to dismiss Garak’s mental illness, especially because the Klingon Empire prides its people on physical strength. I was waiting for them to call him a coward, not “getting over it” like I’ve heard so many times in my own life about mental illness. But as seen above that’s not what happened, the exact opposite does. Its moments like this that make me love Star Trek, even for all its flaws. Sometimes I get to see past my conditioned reaction of the worst, and get to see the best in people instead.

TDLR; Star Trek may be about aliens in the future, but it connects to me on a human level - more than most modern shows do today.

I have often wondered about my own mortality as I have seen others age around me. Until now, it has been theoretically possible that I would live an unlimited period of time. And although some might find this attractive, to me it only reinforces the fact that I am… artificial.
