My sage friend Geo. often points out Trek's allusions to the inter-generational conflicts of its era and "The Ambergris Element" is an excellent example. The older Aquans harbor deep-seeded prejudice against surface dwellers and would have been perfectly happy to let Kirk and Spock drown. Meanwhile, the younger generation strives for greater tolerance and understanding.
