20The Entirety of "Profit And Lace" (S6, E23)
Star Trek, as a whole, is known for its progressive views and deft handling of social issues that plague the society of the 21st century rather than their own. For a show with a track record as successful as Trek’s when it comes to dealing with such topics, it’s no
