The Iranian Ambassador to the UN had just finished giving a speech, and walked out into the lobby where he met President Bush. They shook hands, and as they walked the Iranian said, “You know, I Have just one question about what I have seen in America.”

President Bush said, “Well, anything I can do to help you, I will.”

The Iranian whispered “My son watches this show ‘Star Trek’ and in it there is Chekhov who is Russian, Scotty who is Scottish, and Sulu who is Japanese, but no Arabs. My son is very upset and doesn’t understand why there aren’t any Iranians on Star Trek.”

President Bush laughed, leaned toward the Iranian ambassador, and whispered back, “It’s because it takes place in the future.”

Good one.

    Mauser, this made me think of Dr. Bashir, too.

    The character of Dr. Bashir was played by Alexander Siddig. He was born in Sudan to an English mother and Sudanese father. His name was credited as Siddig El Fadil for the first few seasons of DS9. He then decided to change his stage name to Alexander Siddig.

    Still, a very funny line.

    Wasn’t Dr. Bashir from Deep Space 9 at least PLAYED by an Iranian? Dunno if his religion ever came up, because in the Whitewashed Trek universe, humans are too liberal, er, “Advanced” to have religion, while every other culture has a strong religion.

    Yeah, and one Dreadnaught class heavy cruiser could turn all those ships to vapor.

    That’s from the TNG episode “All Good Things…” in case anyone was wondering.
