Good, clean fun with thought provoking scenarios that are still relevant today. This show is packed with believable characters & cultures as well as educational value (scientific, social, political, etc.). There are a few rare episodes about adult relationships that may be too intimate/intense for younger veiwers. There are many celebrations that involve drinking, but it is often pointed out that the ship's replicators only make "synthahol" versions of traditionally alcoholic drinks. There is relatively little actual violence in most episodes, although characters from more warlike races are often shown persuing appropriate alternatives, like "holodeck" exercises or martial arts style classes. Characters often demonstrate excellent leadership, conflict resolution, & diplomacy skills, just as most "advanced" cultures are shown to value peace & cultural exchange. Honesty, integrity, & friendships are highly prized & the android, Data, provides an indepth look at what it means to be human & often studies specific human qualities, traits, & behaviors in a humorous but enlightening way.
