They exchanged pleasantries and as they walked the Iranian said, "You know I have just one question about what I have seen in America."
Ambassador Bolton said, "Well anything I can do to help you, I will."
The Iranian whispered, "My son watches this show 'Star Trek' and in it there is Chekhov who is Russian, Scotty who is Scottish, and Sulu who is Chinese, but no Iranians. My son is very upset and doesn't understand why there aren't any Arabs or Muslims on Star Trek."
Bolton laughed, leaned toward the Iranian ambassador and whispered back, "It's because it takes place in the future."
Good, though it would never have actually happened. Bolton knows that Iranians are not Arabs.
There are Muslims in the original Star Trek. They are called Klingons.
Star Trek TNG has Cardassians playing the muzzies........and the Ferengi as the Japanese (at the time, but today the Ferengi seem more Chinese).
Just watch. Lol
