  • Athena Andreadis, a Harvard University associate professor of neurology, has written a book about the biological issues raised by the television show. The book explores issues such as whether or not it is biologically possible for Vulcans to suppress all emotions; or whether engineered humanoids could exist. The professor asserts that androids such as Lt. Commander Data could exist, while transporters would not work. Neither would hybrid humanoids (e.g., half human and half Vulcan) like Spock exist. Andreadis adds, "This is one of the few [television] series that actually likes science. How many mainstream shows can you name that actually have scientists as heroes?"

  • The author examines race, its changing meaning and presentation in Star Trek films and television series. Specific topics include, "the representational and narrative functions of race;" How are racial definitions affected by creative or network executive decision making with Trek? How are these definitions affected by fandom? What impact did the civil rights and neoconservative movements have on the production of Trek? The author asserts that Classic Trek draws upon the politics of the 1960's civil rights movement. And, similarly, TNG draws upon "the discourse of whiteness and the politics" of the 1980's and 1990's.

  • Since the original television series, Star Trek has said a lot about God, humanity, war, sex, ethics, and similar topics. The article explores the significance of Trek, its messages, and how those messages relate to the humanist characteristics of its creator, Gene Roddenberry. A brief biography of Roddenberry and a list of notations and references are included. The author asserts that "...what Star Trek does well is to ask good, penetrating questions about truth, God, man, and the world. It forces us to look at ourselves in fresh ways by taking the questions of life that we face daily and addressing them in a fictional, futuristic cultural context. If it is too much to ask that it should also supply the answers, we may be grateful for the entertaining way in which it asks the questions."

Carson, Ed (1997) Star Trek's Gene Roddenberry. In: Investors Business Daily. Section: Leaders & Success, Page A1. November 19, 1997.

  • The author profiles Roddenberry and how he was able to produce the original television series. According to Carson, "If Gene Roddenberry hadn't been as much a pragmatist as he was a visionary, Star Trek never would have aired... He didn't start out as a writer or producer. He was an Army bombardier in World War II and after his discharge became a commercial pilot. But learning to make full use of opportunity took him, step by step, from the cockpit of a Pan Am plane to the controls of the starship Enterprise." In Roddenbery's biographer, author David Alexander states that Roddenberry attributed success in Hollywood as much to recognizing or creating opportunity, as to being fully prepared to take advantage of any opportunities that come up. Roddenberry's credits include a collaborating writer on the television police drama "Dragnet;'' technical adviser for the series Mr. District Attorney in 1953; and a writer on the series Have Gun, Will Travel, Naked City, Dr. Kildare and many other shows. Roddenberry first approached studios and TV networks about Trek in 1960. Realizing that the project would be considered to risky, or too different, he tailored the concept to fit his audience. Aliens weren't too alien looking; the Enterprise crew would visit Earthlike planets and beings who looked somewhat like us, to keep makeup and costume costs down; the transporter device, allowed travel without costly special-effects; and Trek was pitched to studio executives as a Western set in space. (Westerns were very popular TV series at that time.)

  • The Trek enterprise has had its challenges.The second season of the Voyager series began five weeks ago on the UPN network with a ratings decrease from the first season. The DS9 series has been losing roughly one ratings point a season since its premiere in 1993. In reply, the show's executives plan to introduce Klingons to DS9 by adding Michael Dorn's character Lt. Cmdr. Worf from TNG series. "Last year was a very big year for Star Trek," said Rick Berman, who was executive producer of the popular Next Generation and now guides the entire TV and film franchise. "We ended Next Generation after seven years, we began Voyager, we released the first Next Generation movie and we had the third season of Deep Space Nine."

  • This essay analyzes the sex ideology presented in the Classic Trek‘s series and characters - specifically Captain Kirk and Spock. Part of the series' popularity is due to Kirk's characters, which is based upon conventional male stereotypes of the period, including aggression and dominance. According to the author, Kirk's appeal to women "constitutes a reinforcement of traditional, submissive, passive female qualities." As an aline, Spock's identity as an "other" appeals to women who recognize this role in society. Spock's character also includes several elements of conventional male stereotypes.

Once the female characters in these episodes asserted themselves, they were then destroyed by the power of patriarchy.

The author concludes that since Classic Trek, increasingly progressive race and gender images were presented. The episode The Cage, from the original series' pilot, displayed extremely sexist images of women, reflecting American culture at that time.

  • Using a set of functional categories developed from the literature on myth, the author performs a content analysis of Trek to demonstrate its content as being mythic, and to highlight some of its values messages. The author asserts that Classic Trek presents a naively unquestioned faith in the values of freedom and progress, and an ambivalent attitude toward equality. Everyone is supposed to be equal, but females, non-whites and non-Americans are subservient. The thesis concludes by raising questions about the desirability of allowing private ownership of a medium that functions as the nation's common school.

The two teamed up with producer Keith Border, and Border's company Neo Pictures financed "Trekkies." Crosby is currently negotiating the film's distribution deal. According to Crosby, "As soon as I started to go to conventions, I thought, now this is really an interesting thing going on... Being a great fan of documentaries, I wondered, How big is this? How far does this go? Who are these people? And it reaches this diverse group, this wide range of demographics, the people are really intelligent...but why this show? What is it saying?" Crosby was able to make the documentary not only because of her access to the show's insiders, but also because, "People were willing to talk to me in a way that they weren't necessarily willing to talk to journalists and news media," she said. "You know, the whole 'Get a life' [stereotype] kind of wounded a lot of people - they were sort of reeling from that."

  • The TNG episode The Perfect Mate used Shakespeare's love poetry to tell the story of white slavery in space and the problems of homosocial life aboard the USS Enterprise. The lead female character, a "female empathic mesomorph," who can sense precisely a man's needs and give it, is presented as a peace offering between two warring planets. The female is both a prized commodity and threat to life on the starship. These same issues and perceptions were also presented in Shakespeare's sonnets "The Dark Lady" and "Fair Youth."

  • The author presents the importance of including popular culture in literary studies, by analyzing identity representations, in a category of "Space Fictions" from the author. These fictions provide the reader with a situation where symbolism and textual metaphors conceptualize individuals and groups. For critical analysis, the author uses Alice Jardine's concept of gynesis, a process using metaphors of the "feminine;" and new terms including thnesis and zoomorphesis. The discussion includes works by Ursula Le Guin, African American feminist science fiction writer Octavia Butler, and episodes from Classic Trek.

The authors conclude that the programs Space 1999 and Star Trek both have messages, that are re- workings of traditional American ideology. Plus, the emphasis and attention to technical details increases the show's appeal.

It was a total collaboration. No one makes me wear four-inch heels."

Writes Newsham, "Even readers who have never seen a single "Star Trek" episode will find "Future Perfect" engrossing. Greenwald takes us to a secret Trekker orgy deep in the forests of Germany, and to a Hollywood party..." with Ethan Hawke and Sarah Jessica Parker. "In India we sit in on Greenwald's biggest score, a private interview with the Dalai Lama, who says he watched the original "Star Trek" series on Indian television." In New York, Greenwald interviews Kurt Vonnegut Jr., who explains the show's popularity this way, "Look. These things happen because there's a terrific hunger for family. It explains the Deadheads, too. But it's family, family, family. Charles Manson was able to pick up quite attractive, reasonably intelligent young women on the roadside because they were ravenous for family."

Olivier uses the theories of Jung and Campbell to analyze Star Trek and Doctor Who for symbolic and mythopoeic elements. The symbols in both series tends to support the general hypothesis, but each series seems to operating differently; one aimed at adults and the other aimed at adolescents.

Many American writers similarly use Shakespeare to infuse culture, decency and to criticize history.

The author asserts that these films accurately reflect and mediate cultural attitudes about nuclear war and the increasingly technological future. The examination includes the following films: "The Day After," "A Boy and His Dog," "Radioactive Dreams," "The Terminator," and "Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan." Nuclear war is represented in many films, and its representations are often limited to a narrow range scenographic and narrative options, which trivializes the subject. And, nuclear war imagery often indicates a break in society's ability to view the future and a decline in beliefs about positive technological progress.

  • The author briefly surveys science-fiction films from 1960 to 1981, and then reviews methods of criticism. The author asserts that most critical approaches suffer from one or more of the following limitations: (1) a tendency to judge science-fiction films by the same criteria used to judge science-fiction prose; (2) a tendency to use traditional literary analysis systems to analyze themes and conflict; and (3) a tendency to explain science-fiction films based upon other genres. A classification system for sci-fi films is also presented. The discussion includes the following films: The Empire Strikes Back, The Island of Dr. Moreau, Westworld, Altered States, Videodrome, Rollerball, A Clockwork Orange, Zardoz, Star Trek: The Motion Picture and The Time Machine. Popovich concludes with three observations: (1) time is a key plot element; (2) higher-quality films tend to be unified on the level of concept; and (3) higher-quality films tend to express concepts visually versus other methods.

Reeves-Stevens, Judith (1997) Star Trek Phase II: the Lost Series. New York: Pocket Books (Simon & Schuster), 357 pp.

  • In 1977, Paramount first tried to start a fourth television network using a new TREK television series informally referred to as "Star Trek Phase II." (Remember, the Fox network wasn't yet launched in 1977.) When this attempt failed, the producers instead turned their efforts towards a feature length film, which was ultimately released in 1980 as "Star Trek: The Motion Picture." This well researched book describes month by month the series of starts, stops, discussions, confusion, and conflicts that occured during the attempts to produce "Star Trek Phase II." The book contains many images and pictures of the ships, models, phasers, weaponry, sets and television scripts that were upgraded in anticipation of the new television series (that was never made). The book includes a special introduction by John Povill, a writer who helped the shows producers maintain technical consistency in the scripts with the TREK universe as presented in the TOS. The authors provide a rare view into what really happened in Hollywood to produce a film or television show.

  • In a prior autobiography, "I Am Not Spock" actor Leonard Nimoy rejected the idea that he and Spock are the same. In his latest book, "I Am Spock," (Hyperion, $24.95) the actor seeks to dispel any ideas that he resents the comparison to the Spock character. According to Nimoy, "In the first book I was just being a little contentious for the sake of controversy." At 64, Nimoy has grown comfortable with the character and even posed for a picture with a vintage Spock action figure on his shoulder. Nimoy has prospered due to TREK, and the actor has a new CD-ROM, "Leonard Nimoy - Science Fiction: The Gold Collection." Prior recordings included Mr. Spock's Music From Outer Space and Music to Watch Space Girls By. In his new book, the actor also tries to resolve a couple misconceptions: 1) the Classic actors all hate each other; 2) Nimoy tried to have the character Spock killed off. "It was not my idea to kill Spock," the actor said. Nimoy adds that his "Live long and prosper" Vulcan salute was based on a hand signal from Orthodox Judaism that he learned as a youth growing up in Boston. Nimoy now lives in Los Angeles.

  • Physicists in Geneva have created the first 'antimatter' atoms,but it's a long way from being to power a space vehicle. Professor Walter Oelert and his colleagues have made anti-hydrogen at the European Laboratory for Particle Physics, CERN, near Geneva. When combined, anti-hydrogen and hydrogen annihilate each other in a burst of energy. Other speculate that this could be the start of development towards antimatter engines, as depicted on the science-fiction television show. However, Professor Oelert was very cautious stating, "Even if it were possible to produce a lot of antimatter, the technological problems of keeping it are enormous."

The reasons: 1) the series is current; 2) the dramatic appeal of popular television shows appeals to students; 3) the high quality of the production and scripts; 4) many students are already familiar with the TNG series; and 5) hour long episodes are better suited to classroom instruction than full length motion pictures. The authors explore concepts including power, influence, coercive force, family interactions, and communication ethics using examples from several episodes with Commander Data.
