With this meme, the author brings together a classic Star Trek scene with the slogan used in 2008 by then-presidential hopeful Barack Obama. Just as a line intended to convey pure rage, evoking pathos from the viewer, has since become an object of lampoon and parody, so too does Obama's catch-cry of positivity, proactivity and change fall flat in the autumn days of his disappointing presidency. That which was once conveyed sincerely is now subjected to cynical ridicule; was the sincerity that so many believed in ever there at all? Or, like "KHAAN!", has it been worthy of mockery from its very utterance?
