WOW, that's some incredibly unnecessary exposition and retconning. As if I needed another reason to avoid this crap.
I always viewed the Trek universe to be a place where humans were beyond identifying themselves with whatever sort of mythology they were born into or what color their skin is. Those are "primitive" concepts from before the 21st century by Trek standards. It would be like shoe horning in smoking and swearing just to get today's audiences to relate....oh, I see.
