WHY ARE THERE NO ARABS IN STAR TREK?
In the Star Trek universe, World War III begins in 2049, eventually resulting in the total destruction of the Arab world, an event that is only alluded to and never shown in any episode of Star Trek. World War III takes place on May 1, 2053 when a massive nuclear attack is carried out via the Eastern Coalition (“ECON”) against the USA and the European Union. In retaliation the US and EU launch nukes against their enemies, including China, North Korea, and the Arab nations.
“In 1996, this event received a Trekker’s Choice Award for the ‘Oft Heard but Never Seen’ Award, as being “the favorite historical moment only alluded to in Star Trek.” – Memory Beta Wikia
STAR TREK IS AN INCLUSIVE VISION OF THE FUTURE THAT IS FOR EVERYONE?
The so-called ‘enemies’ of the modern Western world are the same figures depopulated in the fictional Star Trek universe. Here the producers/writers of Star Trek have decided to commit a fictional genocide against races they deemed would not fit in with their Eurocentric worldview of a peaceful near-utopian future. The future in Trek, is one that has no place for races such as Mexicans, Arabs, or Ashkenazi Jews.
The nuclear holocaust of Star Trek mythology is a convenient way for a group of predominantly White writers to engage in ‘fictional’ ethnic cleansing. There is no need to cast non-American or non-British actors for Federation Roles, because the Federation lives on in a ‘better’ future without various human races to fill those roles.
In Star Trek mythology, the character of Khan Noonien Singh is written as an Indian, but in the Star Trek TOS episode “Space Seed”, Khan is played by actor Ricardo Montalban. In 2013, Eurocentric producers reintroduced Khan in the Star Trek reboot Into Darkness, this time played by British actor Benedict Timothy Carlton Cumberbatch.
