Why did Star Trek spawn an entire subculture of “trekkies” with their own conventions, publications and lifestyle? Why now, years after the series was produced, do the reruns continue to enchant a new and different generation? Karin Blair explores our inner space for the answers and returns from the journey with fresh and original insights. Using specific episodes as examples, she shows the personal relevancy Star Trek has for us, how Spock, Kirk, McCoy and the others reflect our fears, dreams and aspirations. She calls Star Trek a modern myth and demonstrates why we are all travelers aboard the Enterprise, aliens in time and space, seeking a new land within and outside ourselves in a troubled world.
