Star Trek Actor Explains Why The Next Generation’s ‘Code Of Honor’ Should Remain In Rotation, Despite Offensive Content


Star Trek is a franchise that prides itself on being ahead of the curve on social change, but it hasn’t had a perfect track record in its 50+ years. One especially egregious example exists with The Next Generation‘s Season 1 episode called “Code of Honor,” which is currently available to stream with a Paramount+ subscription. There has been debate about whether the episode should remain available to watch, and actor Cirroc Lofton recently had some interesting thoughts on that subject.

For those unfamiliar, “Code of Honor” has a reputation as one of the worst episodes of Star Trek: The Next Generation. The episode introduced the Ligonians, an alien race that was cast with entirely Black actors who were given clothes that resembled a 1940s tribal aesthetic for costumes. The episode garnered almost immediate criticism from the cast, and many fans have debated whether it should be taken out of viewing rotation entirely for its poor representation.
