In this important study, religion and science fiction meet – in the best tradition of both. Students and teachers of human values, as well as the legion of Star Trek fans, will find this workbook study an exciting, invaluable guide through the entrancing world of Star Trek. The enduring TV series has long been regarded as a communicator of significant values to viewers – especially young people – and Betsy Caprio, the author of Experiments in Prayer and Experiments in Growth, captures the essence of positive, hopeful vision of the future depicted in the story lines of one of the most popular TV series.
For use in both formal and informal study of recent cultural phenomenon of Star Trek, Caprio communicates the recurring and important Christian values inherent to the series’ seventy-nine episodes. Her study helps to explain – to the admirers of Star Trek and the uninitiated – the last and growing appeal of the show. An examination of other science-fiction works, including Star Wars, shows the much of science fiction is made more comprehensible within the framework for study she provides in this book.
This is an impressive, engaging book, illustrated and indexed, that offers a refreshingly different viewpoint, one that reiterates the vision of magnitude, hope, and spiritual union that sustains Star Trek.
