  Human (Star Trek) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Later in that century, humans fought an interstellar nuclear war with the Romulans, a war that ended with the negotiation of a peace treaty by subspace radio.
Later on, humans became a founding member of the United Federation of Planets, and their history from that point forward is largely the history of the Federation.
In the Star Trek: The Next Generation episode Hide and Q, Q states to Commander Riker that the human desire to explore, to learn, and their curiosity will eventually lead humans to a higher state of being.

 Star Trek - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Star Trek collectively refers to a science-fiction franchise spanning six unique television series, 726 episodes and ten motion pictures in addition to hundreds of novels, video games, fan stories and other works of fiction all set within the same fictional universe created by Gene Roddenberry in the mid-1960s.
Star Trek originated as a television series in 1966, although according to The Making of Star Trek by Stephen E. Whitfield and Gene Roddenberry, it had been in the planning stages for at least six years prior to this.
Star Trek: Voyager (also known as ST:VOY, ST:VGR, VOY or Voyager) was produced for seven seasons, and is the only Star Trek series to have had a female, Captain Kathryn Janeway, as the commanding officer.

 Star Trek: Voyager - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Star Trek: Voyager is a science fiction television series set in the Star Trek universe.
It was produced for seven seasons from 1995 to 2001, and is the only Star Trek series to have a female captain, Kathryn Janeway, as a lead character.
In the Star Trek series, the examination of humanity is typically explored by contrasting non-human characters with human ones (for instance, the Earth-born Kirk and McCoy against the Vulcan Spock).

 Lessons from Star Trek
The world of Star Trek is the best possible example of Socialist Dystopia ever thought of (with the USSR a close second), it is a world the Steve Pavlina I’ve been reading for the past weeks would hardly tolerate living and as for Ayn Rand….well she most certainly would have taken arms againt it.
Star Trek success is to address the issues of the world - be they religious, political or historical unless these elements are not factored in the stories of Star Trek then like the recent Star Trek Enterprise’s failure others are bound to fail.
Star Trek is not simply a star ship travelling from one planet to another it is about issues the ship when it visits a world encounters a specific moment in human history or something which is occurring in modern times.

 Star Trek
With the premiere of Star Trek on NBC in September 1966, few could have imagined that this ambitious yet often uneven science-fiction series would go on to become one of the most actively celebrated and financially lucrative narrative franchises in television history.
NBC threatened to cancel Star Trek after its second season, but persuaded in some degree by a large letter-writing campaign by fans to save the show, the network picked up the series for a third and final year.
Star Trek: The Next Generation greatly expanded the potential for such creative elaboration by presenting a more complex storyworld, one that actively encouraged the audience to think of the series as a foundation for imagining a larger textual universe.

 Ex Astris Scientia - Religion in Star Trek
Star Trek's takes on religious topics are often critical, and they almost routinely close with a victory of science over faith.
Star Trek frequently shows that there is someone or something indeed, only that this is always a "false god" that would not deserve to be worshipped.
Star Trek itself has discussed spiritual issues without a reference to a god countless times, it is full of spirituality that just pretends to be of profane scientific nature.

 Ex Astris Scientia - Human Names in Star Trek
Not only is human personnel prevalent in Starfleet, and not only are most of those humans definitely or supposedly Americans.
But this is still no apology for the Anglification of the world, for the silly habit of most authors who apparently pick their characters' names from a book of British/Irish genealogy, entirely ignoring the true composition of the world population in general and even of (white) American citizens in particular.
Together with the observation that American places, customs and food are all-dominant in the fictional future, this definitely casts a bad light on Star Trek's intention to show how humanity may live in peace and explore space together.

 The Fascist Ideology of Star Trek: Militarism, Collectivism, & Atheism   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-13)
Star Trek typically reflects certain political, social, and metaphysical views, and on close examination they are not worthy of the kind of tribute that is often paid to Star Trek as representing an edifying vision of things.
Star Trek has a Utopia to picture, or at least a world free of many of the ills perceived in the present, but it doesn't have to deal with anything so inconvenient as the experience of history.
Star Trek is free to disparage religious belief and ignore traditional religions without the need to address the existential mysteries and tragedies of real life in ways that have actually meant something to the vast majority of human beings.

 Star Trek TV Show - Star Trek Television Show - TV.com
Star Trek was an influential science fiction television series created by Gene Roddenberry that followed the adventures of the crew of the starship U.S.S. Enterprise.
Classic is a term overused but is rightfully applied to Star Trek, as it will be viewed and studied as long as civilization endures.
Star Trek: Voyager, the third spin off in the Star Trek franchise, follows the adventures of the Federation starship Voyager, under the command of Captain Kathryn Janeway.

It bears on the nature and the meaning of human freedom and human flourishing and it faces squarely the alleged threat of dehumanization as well as the alleged promise of super-humanization.
The society in "Star Trek" is a drastic rendition of the trade-off.
My years watching "Star Trek" have left me receptive to the view that mortality is, if not precisely a good thing, then at least the necessary foundation of other very good things, and that there is something misguided about the attempt to overcome mortality.

 The Philosophy of Star Trek
Humans in the 24th century are paragons of virtue, a shining symbol of moral leadership for all other races to aspire to.
Star Trek's mentality of "technology improves society and has no side effects" can only be the result of historical ignorance and shallow thinking.
In Star Trek (in the TNG era and beyond), the society of the Federation is invariably described as "paradise" by the characters onscreen.

 IMAGO VERITATIS - COMMENTS
Picard explains that humans no longer work for personal gain but rather to “better ourselves.” The Ferengi, representing the capitalists of the Star Trek universe, are portrayed as ruthless and greedy barbarians who also happen to be somewhat lacking in native intelligence.
The premise behind the Star Trek utopia seems to be that once the fetters of traditional capitalism, class (and no doubt religion) are thrown off, then human nature will magically blossom into a realization of its inner goodness.
Star Trek makes for decent entertainment, great entertainment in its best moments, but as a guide to a possible future reality it is pure fantasy in more ways than one.

Trivia: The producers and the cast were very worried about their appearance after being away from "Star Trek" (1966) for over ten years.
However, in all subsequent Star Trek movies it was decided to make the aging of the crew part of the story.
Unfortunately, Star Treks III, IV, and V avoid the hard work this movie required and depend on the silly antics of its maturing crew.

Goofs: Continuity: The Star Trek Universe is inconsistent in its use of measurement standards.
Human judgements, eg of beauty, should never be applied to aliens.
They still tease each other, esp. poor Spock about his alleged vulnerability to (human) sentimentality (which he takes as mild insults), and about his ears, which during the first season was still a novelty to audiences.

 The Science of Star Trek
Star Trek also attracts and excites generations of viewers about advanced science and engineering, and it's almost the only show that depicts scientists and engineers positively, as role models.
Star Trek's Dr. Crusher shines a healing ray on her wounded patients and the skin or bone heals immediately.
So, the bottom line is: Star Trek science is an entertaining combination of real science, imaginary science gathered from lots of earlier stories, and stuff the writers make up week-by-week to give each new episode novelty.

 Gay, Lesbian & Bisexual Star Trek
Star Trek's failure to reflect the full diversity of human (never mind alien) sexual orientation is of course only one symptom of a larger problem that has plagued this franchise (indeed much of mainstream science-fiction) from its inception.
In 1987, veteran Trek writer David Gerrold (author of the original episode The Trouble with Tribbles) accompanied Gene Roddenberry to a Star Trek convention in Boston where Roddenberry was asked by Franklin Hummel, then-director of the Gaylaxians, if there would be a gay character on The Next Generation.
Instead, gay Star Trek fans - if there were any left - were treated to a contrived love story between Picard and a non-recuring female character, and to a bubble bath scene featuring Troi and Riker.

 TNG - Lieutenant Commander Data
Data's attempts to understand human nature once included an effort to learn about the concept of humor, which he studied with the assistance of Guinan and a holodeck-created comedian.
One of Data's most noteworthy efforts in his quest for humanity was his construction of an android daughter in 2366.
He possesses a sense of question and wonder that allows him to evolve, and is continuously exploring human nature and emotion on his quest to become human.

 Amazon.com: Star Trek - First Contact: DVD: LeVar Burton,James Cromwell,Michael Dorn,Michael Horton,Alice Krige,Neal ...   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-13)
Even-numbered Star Trek movies tend to be better, and First Contact (#8 in the popular movie series) is no exception--an intelligently handled plot involving the galaxy-conquering Borg and their attempt to invade Earth's past, alter history, and "assimilate" the entire human race.
Guest stars James Cromwell (The Sum of All Fears, Babe) and Alfre Woodward join the cast of TNG as warp-drive inventor Zefram Cochrane and his friend and assistant Lily, who add a certain mixture of edginess and wit to the film.
While "Star Trek: First Contact" rewrites too much of the original TV series' history--a debilitating addiction the current production people can't seem to shake--it delivers a rollicking adventure that is more in keeping with Captain Kirk's episodes than any other "TNG" film.

 'Contradictions' in Star Trek?   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-13)
This poses no problem when human inhabitants are happy to have their work enjoyed for free, but other societies are not as utopian.
Human society has always recognized this not to be the case, as any of a number of competing creation myths can show you.
Needless to say, biased, closed-minded skeptics claiming Star Trek is full of "plot holes" and "internal contradictions" should watch the show and movies more carefully, preferably with an open mind (the type that knows there are no inconsistencies).
