From the Publisher:

For Trekkies everywhere, a fascinating look at the philosophy of Star Trek, from Kirk and Spock to Janeway and Seven of Nine

For four decades, Star Trek has been the obsession of millions of fans. But real Trekkies know that the show is more than just riveting entertainment. Its complex moral dilemmas present a view of the future that holds important truths for us in the present. Drawing on episodes from all four Star Trek generations, this unique book explores the ethics of the series in relation to the theories of the world's great philosophers. Questions about good and evil, right and wrong, power and corruption are discussed in language that,is both readable and compelling as the authors show, how the program has evolved over the years to address society's changing values. For this century and beyond, The Ethics of "Star Trek" is an intriguing look at a brilliantly imagined-world and what it can teach us about how to live.

A professor of philosophy examines the ethical issues of the twenty-fourth-century universe depicted in the "Star Trek" movies and television shows as seen through the eyes of the world's great philosophers.
Annotation:
The ethical legacies of Plato, Kant, and Nietzsche reach even to the 24th Century, as Kirk and Picard have demonstrated on countless occasions. Barad's book illustrates the complexities of these and other ethical systems with choice episodic references.
