  • Stargate SG-1
    • Subverted by the fact that humanity is the second evolution/biological descendants of the Ancients.

I'm asking for elaboration on this one. How exactly is biology/evolution subverting human stupidity?

You mean there exists in Real Life more advanced and sophisticated alien races that we can compare ourselves to? Fascinating, I did not know this.

Maybe, but who needs aliens when we've got cats?

(Or dogs, cows, chickens, cockroaches or flatworms. Humanity's stupidity is matched only by its arrogance.)

  • In Babylon 5, humans start out as the only race that doesn't have artificial gravity that works without a rotating hull. They're also among the dumber of the "bad guy" races, starting a war at one point by firing on a ship that had opened its weapon ports in salute. However, it's revealed that Humans Are Special, because Earth's hat is building ever-changing, diverse communities, something the other races aren't able to do as easily.

Humans are not the only people without AG. Most B5 races don't have AG. AG is a sign of advanced tech. And they fired because the open gun ports were combined with stealth tech and "shut your jump engines down" scanners. There was a legitimate concern that the Minbari were about to attack.

This is a poorly written example: it doesn't refer to humans, only to their Insignificant Little Blue Planet.
