Product Overview

This book is a welcome and original contribution to the world of ''Star Trek.'' The book not only sets ''Star Trek'' in dialogue with ideas and stories of utopia, community, self-improvement, that are central to American culture and history, but goes further to examine the complex ways in which these are taken up and used by ''ordinary'' fans, who engage with ''Star Trek'' in complex and significant ways. Lincoln Geraghty explores, for example, ''Star Trek''s multiple histories and how ''Star Trek'' and the American Jeremiad, one of the nation''s foundational texts, refer back to the past to prophesy a better future. He reveals how fans define the series as a blueprint for the solution of such social problems in America as racism and war and shows how they have used the series to cope with personal trauma and such characters as Data and Seven of Nine in moments of personal transformation. This is all in all a revelatory and original book on ''Star Trek'' as both TV and cinema.
