Notes

Abstract: The television series Star Trek was intended by its creator Gene Roddenberry to address significant social and cultural issues of the 1960s. It can be seen as a place to begin looking at the paradigm shift between modern and postmodern thought. As an indicator of the change in the cultural imagination I look at the portrayal of the Other in this seminal piece of popular culture. The adventures of the multi-ethnic crew in the interstellar vessel the Enterprise can continue to function as a touchstone for considerations of the Other.
