True, Wesley Crusher was a horrible writing decision, and should have been killed off rather than made immortal (I mean, seriously? Now future generations are going to be subjected to him too? Way to go, supposedly godlike aliens.). I do agree with centersolace, of course - "Shut up, Wesley." was one of the greatest lines in Trek history.

My original point in comparing the Kirk-Ohura kiss to Jar-Jar Binks is that Trek helped to define social equality nearly a half-century ago, while Star Wars annoyed the African-American community with a clumsy stereotype (accidental or not) as late as 1999.
