Topic: Katra (Star Trek)


  
  Religion och Star Trek
Jag tror att Bajor är den första planet i Star Trek som presenteras som helt genomsyrad av en religion - ALLA är troende, och det religiösa överhuvudet är också regent - och där detta ses som något bra.
Star Trek kan i sig själv vara som en religion för trekkers, eller ska vi säga trekkies här?
Star Trek är rena smörgåsbordet för den som vill få utlopp för sin fanatism på ett harmlöst sätt.

 STARTREK.COM : Biography
That mission in turn set off a chain of events that led to Kirk's reunion with Carol Marcus and his son David, David's death, Spock's sacrifice to save the ship and his storage of his katra in McCoy's mind, and the discovery that Spock's body had regenerated on the Genesis Planet.
Bucking the odds once again, Kirk's loyal officers all risked their careers and lives to steal the Enterprise, retrieve Spock's body for refusion with his katra, and face down a Klingon crew in their way bent on taking Genesis — which included the destruction of Kirk's beloved starship.

  Katra - Memory Alpha, the Star Trek Wiki
A highly notable surviving katra was the one of Surak, Vulcan's founder and father of Vulcan philosophy.
When a katra is transferred to someone, he or she will benefit from the experiences of the person the katra came from.
In 2154 the katra of Surak was transfered from Syrran into Captain Jonathan Archer during the aftermath of the bombing of Earth's embassy on Vulcan.

  Vulcan (Star Trek) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Vulcans are a humanoid species in the fictional Star Trek universe who reside on the planet Vulcan and are noted for their attempt to live by reason and logic.
Katras have been referenced several other times in Star Trek lore, and it is indicated that even by the 24th Century not all Vulcans believe in them.
When the two personalities become intertwined, the katra cannot be removed, as happened to T'Prell, who died and gave her katra to her Romulan friend Selke, who was then captured and used as a spy for the Tal Shiar before she could return T'Prell's katra to Vulcan.

 Leonard McCoy - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In Star Trek: The Original Series, he was one of the three main characters and the humanistic counterpart to the logical Spock; capable of great compassion, yet also cranky, superstitious, and irrational, shunning advanced technology (especially the transporter beam, which he regarded with distrust) and occasionally even bigoted with regard to Spock's part-Vulcan ancestry.
Star Trek fans have speculated that McCoy was promoted to Captain sometime after 2295 and further speculation indicates that McCoy may have become the head of Starfleet Medical School, though to date nothing canonical has been confirmed about this part of his life.
In the non-canonical "expanded universe" of Star Trek, McCoy's death was marked by a comic book story published by DC Comics soon after Kelley's death, in which Spock and Montgomery Scott - two TOS characters known to still be alive and active in the 24th Century - visit McCoy on his death bed.

 Star Trek - A Biblical Review
In the Star Trek series, the idea of God is viewed as developed out of primitive intelligence which view cosmic phenomena as representing God, where in fact it is simply a result of alien higher technology and power.
Although Star Trek tries to put altruism as the governing principle (in the form of Vulcan principle: the good of many exceeds the good of one) yet the definition of good is relative.
Star Trek is a deification of man and therefore a sin against God.

 Star Trek LCARS Episode Database - Star Trek: Enterprise Episode Guide - Season 4   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Back in 1979, during the opening sequence of Star Trek: The Motion Picture when the 'new' Klingons were revealed, fans the world over began their attempt to explain this transformation from the largely human-looking Klingons during the original run of Star Trek, to these vastly different, more alien-looking Klingons.
An early Star Trek novel, Timetrap had a very interesting take on the situation, suggesting that the Klingon species was made up of both types of "Klingons" and that, over time, the "human looking" variety was virtually shunned out of existence.
Ask any fan of the original Star Trek what their top 5 episodes of that series are and, invariably, Mirror, Mirror will be among those chosen.

 [No title]
Star Trek functions as myth when it encourages the belief, for example, that human beings are a noble species that will somehow survive and learn to solve its problems.
Unlike the _Star Wars_ trilogy, in which the continued existence of Obi-won Kenobi after his death is explained by the life-power of the Force, Star Trek never offers a broader world-view context for the existence of the soul.
Specifically, Star Trek draws on the belief, found in both classical Greek thought and in Eastern philosophy, that human beings are basically all right but that within them disparate elements fight for control of the whole.

 DVDFILE.COM: Star Trek III The Search for Spock review   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Star Trek III: The Search for Spock was the first Star Trek film I ever saw in a theater; in fact it was the first Star Trek anything I'd ever seen.
It was probably the most genuine and touching moment ever seen in a Star Trek film before or since: not only had the members of the crew lost their beloved Vulcan science officer and friend, fans had lost a familiar icon.
This is what Trek movies are supposed to be all about, and Star Trek III delivers on this count much better than it is often given credit for.

 DVD Review - Star Trek III: The Search For Spock   (Site not responding. Last check: )
There is a myth among many fans about the "odd and even" curse concerning the Star Trek motion pictures, positing that the good films are all even numbered with the reverse being true of the odd.
It certainly provides DeForest Kelley with some of his best moments in the Star Trek chronicles, giving him the opportunity to show real acting range as he struggles with impulses that are, literally, alien to him.
This is a more contemplative episode of Star Trek; less about battles in space (though there are some brief moments of melee) than about philosophical issues of life, rebirth, sacrifice and loss.

 THE CINEMA LASER DVD REVIEW-- STAR TREK III: THE SEARCH FOR SPOCK
STAR TREK III: THE SEARCH FOR SPOCK ($30) is another of the films in the STAR TREK series that suffers from the curse that afflicts the odd numbered films in the series.
STAR TREK III picks up shortly after the events of STAR TREK II: THE WRATH OF KHAN, with Admiral Kirk (William Shatner) and his crew having to deal with the fact that Captain Spock (Leonard Nimoy) gave his life to save them all.
STAR TREK III: THE SEARCH FOR SPOCK isn’t the best of the STAR TREK films that featured the original cast (numbers 6 and 2 get my vote), however it is an enjoyable adventure that fans will want to own on DVD because of Paramount Home Entertainment’s first rate presentation.

 Filmtracks: Star Trek III: The Search for Spock (James Horner)
Star Trek III: The Search for Spock: (James Horner) Shock and dismay had overwhelmed the nucleus of Star Trek fans in 1982; Spock was dead, and a beloved fixture of the television show and first two films was gone.
Before even Star Trek II could be finished, the potential uproar of such an outcome was realized by the series' producers, and the bulk of the third film was devoted to bringing the character back to life.
That track aside, the Star Trek III score is still not as strong as its predecessor, by any means, and a weary potential-buyer should definitely investigate Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan first.

Star Trek: Vanguard #2: Summon the Thunder (Star Trek) by Dayton Ward
Not only is it a superb sequel to both "Star Trek: The Motion Picture" and the series episode "For the World is Hollow and I have touched the Sky", but it is that rarity in "Star Trek" fiction: an admirable piece of writing which rises close to what I expect from superb science fiction literature.

 Talk:Katra - Memory Alpha, the Star Trek Wiki
I found a reference in Star Trek III: The Search for Spock that the katra ritual was meant to store katras in the 'Hall of Ancient Thought' it is not mentioned if this was on mount Seleya.
The speculation text is not that clear but Spock transfered his katra to Doctor McCoy, afterwards he enters the radiation room, performs several complex tasks and is even able to speak to Kirk.
Don't forget, Spock in #3 after getting his Katra back repeats what he said at the end of #2 "The Ship out of danger?" "I always have been and always shall be your friend" although in the context of not being in danger.

 Katra (Star Trek) at AllExperts
In the fictional Star Trek universe, katra is the immortal, living spirit of a Vulcan.
When a Vulcan is close to death, he or she will typically transfer their katra into the mind of an associate or close friend, who is then expected to convey the katra to the homeworld.
Surak's katra briefly resided in the mind of Captain Jonathan Archer but was subsequently transferred to the care of a Vulcan priest.

 STARTREK.COM : Synopsis
In Kirk's quarters, Sarek, Spock's father, confronts the Admiral, saying that Spock's body should have been returned to Vulcan so that his katra could have been stored in an ancient Vulcan repository on Mount Seleya.
Sarek tells Kirk that he must retrieve the coffin from the Genesis planet and, since Spock performed a last-minute Vulcan mind-meld with McCoy, thus transferring his "katra" or spirit, the doctor must also return to Vulcan.
Once there, the risky ceremony fal-tor-pan is performed, fusing Spock's katra, which resides in McCoy's mind, with the Vulcan's body.

 Sheryl's Star Trek Site - Memorial to DeForest Kelley - Dr. Leonard H. McCoy
Spock's deposit of his katra in 2385 had nearly driven him crazy and landed him in Starfleet detention until the refusion took place, whereupon he delighted in the Vulcan's reeducation process.
From his opening grouchfest as a bearded "draftee" with old friend Kirk amid the crew reunion of Star Trek The Motion Picture, to the housing of Spock's katra and a bare bones admission of friendship in Star Trek III: The Search for Spock, McCoy has been a character that grew throughout.

 Star Trek III: The Search for Spock
Star Trek III: The Search for Spock (Paramount Pictures, 1984; see also 1984 in film) is the third feature film based on the popular Star Trek science fiction television series.
It is a direct sequel to Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, and has a similar feel although often with a lighter, more humorous touch.
Star Trek: The Next Generation would perpetuate this confusion between the two races, attributing the Romulans' sense of honor to the Klingons.

After the fresh exuberance and swashbucklery of Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, the third adventure was something of a downer.

Trek II was a solid step in the right direction, yet there wasn't a lot of diversity or animation in the menus.
