Since 1966, Star Trek has become a unique multimedia phenomenon, encompassing an ever-growing number of television series and major feature films. This book traces the evolution of Star Trek from its earliest days, examining the role of its creator, Gene Rodenberry, and his various successors in the creation of a unique dramatic “universe” within which many contemporary ethical dilemmas have been addressed. Comparing present-day and 1960s versions, Chris Gregory examines how the differences reflect how mass-media-related culture has changed since that time and evaluates Star Trek as a cult phenomenon.
