I've just watched both Storm Front episodes (ENT) and I'm surprised how anti-German Star Trek has become. I mean, ALL German soldiers are portrayed as evil monsters, and when Archer is asked to destroy the Germans with the help of the Enterprise, he justs says that he wants to do it his way. He could've pointed out that Germans actually have become quite nice guys in the 22nd century or something like that but he doesn't comment any of the anti-German hatred spread by Alicia Travers. I mean, Star Trek should be about friendship and humans working together. Instead it's "Humans working together--except for those fucking German bastards." Russians are nice guys and have Chekov. The Japanese are nice guys and have Sulu. But the Germans are only referred to as assholes that deserve to be destroyed. That's quite sad. I mean, why the hell is this? Has there ever been a producer or writter of Star Trek who has given a reason for this hatred? -- AniWX 19:08, July 8, 2011 (UTC)

The soldiers he was fighting weren't from the 22nd century, they were Nazis in the 20th century. Sulu is no more a World War II Japanese soldier than Chekov is an Imperial Russian Cossack on an anti-Jewish Pogrom. You are further compounding this by ascribing statements never said, such as intentional malice against the Germans as a people instead of against the Nazis. --OuroborosCobra talk 08:15, July 27, 2011 (UTC)
