Star Trek as Myth

Star Trek as Myth

My very first Star Trek book was given to me as a gift in 1993. It was Star Trek: The Next Generation Technical Manual. Not exactly an exorbitant gift, but the young lady who presented it to me joked that it was worth “at least a dime” ...

In the past, the examination of myth has traditionally been the study of the “Primitive” or the “Other.” More recently, myth has been increasingly employed in movies and in television productions. Nowhere is this more apparent than in the Star Trek television and movie franchise. This collection of essays on Star Trek brings together perspectives from scholars in fields including film, anthropology, history, American studies and biblical scholarship. Together the essays examine the symbolism, religious implications, heroic and gender archetypes, and lasting effects of the Star Trek “mythscape.”

First published in 1992 and last revised in 1995, this is a fitting record of a show that changed the rules by which television was made. The first adventure drama series ever to run to seven seasons and more than 170 episodes, Star Trek: The Next Generation broke audience records wherever it was shown and remains the most widely viewed and consistently popular of all the Star Trek series. This new edition of the series companion has been brought bang up to date to include not only all seven years of the TV series but also all four films which have featured the Next Generation crew. In addition to Generations (1994), we now have full details of First Contact (1997), Insurrection (1998) and the very latest incarnation, Nemesis (2002). A positive feast of information, the Companion includes complete plot summaries and credits for each invidiual episode and film. There are fascinating behind-the-scenes glimpses into how each one was made, and in-depth analysis really brings The Next Generation universe to life. Illustrated throughout with more than 150 black and white photographs, this is a truly invaluable reference guide.

Star Trek Technical Manual

Star Trek Technical Manual

Astonishing to examine, the detailed documentation and original technical drawings in this book betray a creative skill to the 11 year old author well beyond their years.

Yes, there are a great deal of errors in this unofficial technical manual produced in 1992 in Canada. And the drawings, while extensive across its 80 pages. But the astounding fact about this Star Trek Technical Manual is that it was made entirely by an 11 year old boy, in the early 1990s before any semblance of the internet was around. Astonishing to examine, the detailed documentation and original technical drawings in this book betray a creative skill to the 11 year old author well beyond their years. A wonderful and nostalgic examination of the Star Trek universe from the perspective of a child just as Star Trek: The Next Generation's popularity peaked in popular culture (and pre-Deep Space Nine). The amazing talent that oozes from this book more than make up for the errors and incompleteness. The author wrote and published the original manuscript themselves using an Apple Macintosh Classic computer and most of the drawings and text were completed in MacDraw and MacWrite, respectively. Digitized and reproduced with the author's permission. Enjoy!

Famed for its original storylines, endearing and complex characters as well as the sheer enjoyment of watching, Star Trek is a serious hobby for some, a part-time job for others, and a rich source of fun for all. On Board The U.S.S. Enterprise is the golden ticket for a once-in-a-lifetime, access-all-areas personal tour of the fabled corridors of the U.S.S. Enterprise, deconstructed with all the seriousness and depth of an equivalent guide to the Titanic. Captain Picard's Starship Enterprise has become the enduring image of Star Trek: TNG, and this is the legend at the centre of this title. Contents The enclosed CD-ROM contains a 3D tour of much of the U.S.S. Enterprise, which has been created in close dialogue with the creators of the Star Trek sets. The Star Trek franchise's exclusive, cordoned-off vaults have been fully explored to illustrate the inside of the craft to loving levels of detail that are unmatched even on the TV show. In the book, replete with original commentary, chapters touch upon the origins of the U.S.S. Enterprise, why and how the Enterprise was built, star charts and navigation, the warp core, power generation and Faster Than Light propulsion systems, technology and equipment, teleportation and turbolifts, living quarters, the Bridge, attack and defence systems (including tractor beams, cloaking, photon cannons and force fields), the sick bay, and more.
