Also, you know nothing, show watchers.

Regardless, I still wished the movie had been a bit slower and more subtle. The old Section 31 used elaborate secret plans filled with political manipulations, lies, and betrayals. It kind of sucks how they've been turned into a bunch of dumb warmongers who barely even try to hide their existence. Also, I wish there had been a greater focus on Khan's intellect and charisma rather than his physical strength.

And that's not even including the whitewashing of characters in media that are based on real people of other races.

As for Defiance, there's definitely a Babylon 5 vibe to it. The characters are interesting and have potential. However, the show does have its problems. The pilot was pretty predictable and there are some continuity issues that they need to address. Just a few potential continuity problems that I noticed:
The mayor said in this week's episode that they drove out the Irathients with cold-fire weapons but during the battle in the last episode, they only had earth weapons and no alien weapons.
What happened to all the Volge wreckage from the battle? Shouldn't they be scavenging the battlefield for tech and weapons that they can use?
The deputy was assigned to investigate who set Ben free and hired him to destroy the town but he just forgot about it and decided to save the guy who was being tortured.
They stopped Ben from blowing up the nuclear power plant but the power plant is still there so they better deal with it in the future or the bad guys could just send someone else to blow up the power plant.

As for the dolphin, that was an actual idea they had for TNG. They were swept up in the whole new agey "whales and dolphins are smarter than humans" insanity, as evidenced by Star Trek 4. The idea was that dolphins were as intelligent as humans and that the dolphin crew member was a navigator because dolphins are adept at swimming in three dimensions. There was even supposed to be a big aquarium dedicated to the dolphin navigator.

In fact, the Federation doesn't have to promote even half the amount of altruism that those societies believe in. Being a waiter could simply be like an apprenticeship. If you want to learn from a great chef, then you go and work as a waiter for them. Plus considering the level of tech available on earth, restaurants wouldn't need human waiters, everything could be automated, they'd only need chefs to do the cooking.
