Star  Trek  was  an  attempt  to  say  that  humanity  will  reach  maturity  and  wisdom  on  the  day  that  it  begins  not  just  to  tolerate,  but  to  take  a  special  delight  in  ideas  and  differences in  life  forms.  If  we  cannot  learn  to  enjoy  those  small  differences,  to  take  a  positive  delight in  those  small  differences  between  our  own  kind,  here  on  this  planet,  then  we  do  not  deserve  to  go  out  into  space  and  meet  the  diversity  that  is  almost  certainly  out  there.
