I was watching Star Trek Voyager today (I know what a geek!) and something remarkable came to light!
The episode in question is called "Remember", a brief synopsis:
After Voyager encounters a telepathic species, B'Elanna starts having powerful dreams that depict the life of a woman and her lover in a time of
great political and social upheaval.
Something very interesting is said maybe 5 seconds in:
We are three days away from Enara Prime, home of the passengers that we picked up in the FEMA system.
A few seconds later one of the Enarans says:
I've spent my whole life in the FEMA COLONY
OK, not exactly earth shattering, that is until you watch the entire episode.
Voyager is taking these people back to their home world, but one of the crew keeps receiving visions from one of the passengers.
In the visions, the Enarans are sending INFERIOR members of the population to CAMPS to be segregated from society. They are apparently held there for
their own good. But it comes to light that the camps are actually extermination camps and the Men, Woman and Children are being sent there to be
The episode can be watched in full HERE
Watch the first 30 seconds for the Mention of FEMA, then go to the 24 minute mark (use the second link for this!).
They discuss the 'voluntary' resettlement of the people, they call them Regressives
. The Regressives refuse modern technology, communication
devices, that is the reason they are being resettled.
I strongly suggest you go to the 24 minute
mark and check it out.
At the 29 minute
mark they discuss the truth, the New Colony doesn't exist, the transports are just execution machines, the population is
being ethnically cleansed.
The Regressives were deported and executed in a program of mass genocide. The Enarans, though, seek to cover-up the genocide by teaching
succeeding generations that the Regressives brought about their own demise.
I reckon that's quite a connection, FEMA COLONIES
conspiracies against society.
When confronted, one of the main characters says:
Father - "Don't think about it any more, that Regressive was completely irrational. He attacked you for no reason."
Daughter - "Maybe he thought that he had a reason, maybe he was afraid."
F - " I know there are some very disturbing rumours coming from these people. You may have heard them from that boy. You know the thing that is so
insidious about these Regressives is that they pretend to be passive, not harming anyone. And all the while they're spreading their lies trying to
make you believe these awful things."
D - "Why would they do that?"
F - "They have some twisted ideas about resisting progress which they think gives them the right to hold us back, in any way that they can. they're
trying to undermine us. to cause dissent and doubt, just look at how they've affected you."
D - "But what they're saying is so horrible."
F - "Yes but it isn't very plausible Corena think............
THIS IS WHERE IT GETS INTERESTING FOLK:
"A secret conspiracy against their people, organised murder on such an enormous scale, do you really believe that your family and freinds are
capable of that?"
Art imitating life, or Life imitating art, I hope it's the latter my friends!
All the best ATS
