Immense rudeness to a class of people(with many billions of powerful friends on the way, but I doubt that’s widely known), and enforced politeness to machines. This is a road best left untrodden.
“Untrodden,” there’s a word I don’t get to use often enough.
I take it to mean even the replicator, or what ever AI is running things, has a personality and self respect, rather than forcing politeness as a training tool. But I agree, it does represent a huge disparity in treatment.
In the light of TNG, treating machines respectfully is natural, but in comparison to TOS everything is topsy turvy, and having an underclass doesn’t fit either.
I think the underclass *is* the billions of Kelvans that showed up as refugees, that that’s the way the future society decided to incorporate a doubling of its population.
