I saw a plotline from Star Trek in the latest episode of Doctor Who, School Reunion.
The scenario in Star Trek is this: they land on a planet which is a paradise. The people on the planet try to get the crew to join them, as everything is perfect. The crew, usually Kirk, refuse, saying they don't want everything to be perfect, they like things how they are.
A similar thing happened in Dr Who. Not that the bat-people looked like creatures from paradise, but when their leader offered the Doctor and his team/gang/entourage the chance to make the Universe a better place, Sarah Jane said that she liked it how it was.
Why do we distrust those who offer a better place?
