The same reason Marines still have swords. Tradition.

Wasn't Captain Robou (Farhan Tarir) a Muslim?

What gives you that idea ?
I noticed nothing that was specific Muslim at him.

I doubt that you would be looked down upon even if you did believe in a God in either of those centuries.
Commander Chakotay still believes in his traditional Native American religion and no-one looked down on him.

The belief in science and peace does not preclude a belief in a supreme being. It's people who cause wars not religions. They may do it in the name of religion but that is not the same thing. Why is religion viewed as only for the intellectually sub normal? Einstein was a Christian and I think most of us would agree that he was a pretty clever chap.

Sorry Jla , I realise that my post sounds like I'm having a go at what you have said which I'm not. I was agreeing with you but then I went into a rant

No, I agree with you. I think perhaps you mistook what I was trying to say. Admittedly, it wasn't very clear. I was trying to say that people could have all kinds of beliefs throughout the history of Trek and not be looked down upon due to it. I think prejudice was darn near eradicated by the 24th century especially.

EDIT: No big deal about the rant. I think we just miscommunicated twice...lol

No, he was Jewish and I belive he was rather agnostic.
