The social issues this show tackled on network television (interracial relations, discrimination, environmental ethics, the caste system, to name a few...) broke new ground. I recently saw an interview with the actress who played Ohura (the female African-American communications officer) where she talked of almost leaving the show at one point, but she received a letter from Martin Luther King, Jr., sharing what an inspiration she was personally for the role she was playing, and respect she was shown in the intergalactic world of Star Trek. It may seem "geeky," but in retrospect, it was certainly historical.
