survivor-trek said: that’s REALLY surprising considering the constant racial and religious undertones in ds9. plus, ya know…far beyond the stars…
I KNOW RIGHT. There is actually a fair bit about race, to be fair, but the scholarship is overwhelmingly gender and sexuality when it comes to the 90s-era Trek series. Like seriously this is my JSTOR search:
I…. I was searching for “Voyager”
ALSo why is all scholarship on trek about TOS??? Seriously, all anyone ever writes about deep space nine is about sexuality and gender WHICH IS NICE but not anything I can cite for this paper
poking my head in briefly to beg for finals help- I’m doing my final in Classics of SciFi on morality and religion in Star Trek, and I shamefully haven’t seen more than four episodes of TNG. If you guys could suggest episodes that are typical of the moral themes of TNG, I would be forever in your debt! Feel free to do the same with the other treks, too, since I’m sure I’m forgetting some good ones?
have you accepted star trek as your lord and saviour?
a guide for prospective trekkies
with the trailer for the new jj abrams film hot off the proverbial press, there has been a renewed interest in all things trek. starting any new franchise is scary shit, so i’ve attempted to provide some handy hints n top tips for anyone looking to pursue their interest further and navigate the firey-mouthed behemoth that is the star trek universe.
- The star trek franchise spans approximately 320 years in universe (excluding time travel) and 50 years in real time, and is comprised of 12 movies and 6 tv series. this chronology and scope may seem daunting but do not fear, wikipedia has a timeline here and there is also a more concise one here.
- memory alpha, the star trek wiki, is also your bff, but beware of spoilers!
- trekcore is a fabulous archive of everything from screencaps to audio and video clips to rare bts photos(suggested viewing order, essential episodes and more info under the cut!)
