Out today is another book, titled “The Self and Community in Star Trek: Voyager“, by .

After they are pulled 700,000 light-years away from Alpha Quadrant, the captain and crew of Star Trek: Voyager face the daunting task of traveling homeward while exploring new environments that challenge their relationships, views of others, and themselves. As the first extended, critical study dedicated to Star Trek: Voyager, this book examines how the series uses the physical distance from the crew’s home quadrant and the effect this has on the dynamic between community formation, self-creation and a sense of place. Essays cover topics such as time travel, leadership models, interspecies relationships, the impact of trauma, models of self-creation and individuality, time travel, environmental influences on the group and the individual, memory, nostalgia, and how spiritual experiences affect groups and individuals. In particular, the holographic Doctor and the former Borg, Seven of Nine, stand out as complex and boundary-stretching figures.
