We want to show you how busy are our friends. Two of them – Syaiful Bahri and his wife, Yona Aloewie – took part in organizing a video conference at Star Trek Day!
Before he moved to Poland, Syaiful was a member of the Indonesian Star Trek Fans Club. His wife was bitten by Star Trek’s bug, too. At present, they both belong to the Star Trek Fan Club in Poland. On November 2013 they jointly prepared a video conference between Warsaw and Jakarta at Star Trek Day event. Jakarta was the host of the event via Skype video conference.
It was a great opportunity to make a long distance ‘first contact’ between two nations in the event, said Syaiful.
Issues depicted in the various series of Star Trek include war and peace, the value of personal loyalty, authoritarianism, imperialism, class warfare, economics, racism, religion, human rights, sexism, feminism, and the role of technology.
