Editors Note Read about the politics in on of the most famous sci-fi series on TV and the big screen! Read all about women, sex, racism, Nazis etc. With hundreds of examples. The author, a political scientist, watched all 704 episodes, as no one has done before in science. Read what he found out.Since the days I watched Star Trek (The Original Series=TOS) for the first time, forty years have passed by; and all together seven hundred-and-four episodes of the franchise have been shot, in various spin-offs, additionally, a number of feature films were produced. As of today, the Trek universe encompasses more than four hundred species or peoples (according to Fans all over the world meet regularly at conventions around the globe. Naturally, lots of books are out by American authors; many of those take a look from a sociological angle, some are feminist or philosophical; but none take an all over look at the political themes of the franchise. I watched all 704 episodes of the franchise, except the animated series. From the whole bulk I have chosen about two hundred in order to quote them as examples. Many episodes are re-runs of plots which are used repeatedly throughout all spin-offs.
