    1. This was such a good read! I absolutely loved the analyses of the ST original series and the different perspectives that each individual scholar used to approach the Star Trek universe as a myth and its impact in today's society.I recommend this book for anyone who has seen or not seen the series but would like to learn more about it.Can't wait to re-watch the TOS episodes again so I can apply some of these theoretical and philosophical ideologies!


    2. Very intersting look at Star Trek. Scholars from different fields give an insightful look at a how Star Trek is the modern Myth and how is lasted these 40+ years.
