The Saudi Ambassador to the U.N. has just finished giving a speech, and walks out into the lobby where he meets his American counterpart. They shake hands and as they walk the Saudi says, "You know, I have just one question about what I have seen in America". The American says "Well your Excellency, anything I can do to help you I will do." The Saudi whispers "My son watches this show 'Star Trek' and in it there are Russians and Blacks and Asians, but never any Arabs. He is very upset. He doesn't understand why there are never any Arabs in Star Trek." The American laughs and leans over. "That's because it takes place in the future."

Hummm, good question. I think I saw an "Indian" (India) in one of the movies. Lets see....... if they're busy right now hiding in holes and trying to stay to their 'faith'..... no women allowed in position of power, so on, then well, they wouldn't want to be in 'Starfleet'. Ya have women Captains......

Now I feel like a total geek. There was a Middle Eastern Captain in Star Trek 4. He sent an emergency message early in the film.

Sure that one wasn't a hologram? Something out of an ancient history museum, perhaps?

[STAR TREK GEEK MODE]Siddig El Fadil is his real name and he is half-Sudanese. He said that he changed it to Alexander Siddig because no one could pronounce his real name. His uncle is Malcolm McDowell of "Clockwork Orange" and "Star Trek: Generations" fame.[/STAR TREK GEEK MODE]

A trekkie pointed out that this was false. There is Khan.

Yes...There was Khan the evil genetically enhanced spawn of a "Taliban" like culture that tried to take over the Earth but ended up plunging it into a nuclear holocaust. [(:|)]
