From the Publisher:
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 memory-alpha.org). 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.
