Sorry, but I’m watching the union episode of Deep Space Nine and it’s amazing? I can’t even imagine something so pro-labour airing on television today.
Like, referencing union efforts of North American miners from the 1900’s. O’Brien is very very pro-union.
Rom just said the literal words “Workers of the world, unite! You have nothing to lose but your chains!”
ooooo the capitalists just showed up to crush the uprising
Rom has legitimately become one of my favourite characters. He has like a whole character arc and everything.
@ashfurrow Its such a wonderful episode!! One of DS9's best.
@ashfurrow see also s01e12 of Babylon 5, "By Any Means Necessary", also shockingly pro union for 1994.
@ashfurrow the actor who plays Quark was actually very active in the screen actors guild and a big union supporter
