On the premiere episode of PoliTreks...
What happens when "Space Dad" is not there to save you? As Riker finds out in Best of Both Worlds: Part 2, you have to find your own way. Shashank and Barry explore the heroes of Star Trek to talk about when those in the real world we venerate as heroes and paragons of virtue either do not live up to our expectations, or we as individuals have to live up to the standards we set for our leaders. Sometimes the most pivotal moments in a person's life is when she must go beyond what her hero stood for and, sometimes, stand for more, and stand alone. Who are your heroes in Trek and the real world? How will you act in a moment of uncertainty when your hero is either not there, or maybe, has failed you?
