 Telepathy - Hidden Frontier
In some races, telepathy is present in all healthy individuals (those not born with congenital problems and not the victims of accidents or disease).
Telepathy is possible because the sentient mind itself is independent of the brain.
Telepathy involves a person developing a "resonance" between themself and another person, so their resonant signatures "overlap" to a certain extent which "re-tunes" their mind frequencies to match, allowing for the "sharing" of thoughts, emotions and memories, and, in some cases, even their personality traits, etc. such as in a Vulcan mind meld.

 Star Trek
Note: The Physics of Star Trek and Beyond Star Trek by Lawrence M. Krauss are invaluable sources for evaluating technologies depicted in these movies.

 The Science of Star Trek, by Erik Davis
Unlike the demon-slaying Carl Sagan, who attacked Star Trek for eroding the scientific literacy of the masses, Krauss knows that his analyses are themselves already extensions of the "universal Trekker pastime" of finding flaws, technical or narrative, within episodes.
Star Trek is also troubled by any ambiguity that threatens the autonomy of individual organisms; because of this, collective species like the Changelings and mechanical/organic crossovers like the Borg almost invariably play the bad guys.
This shouldn't be surprising: Star Trek's story has a lot to do with the story of science, a story that most of these authors worry is losing ground.

 Star Wars vs Star Trek Technology: ST Shields
This star was a G-class star which was most likely less than 45% of Sol's luminosity because the Dyson sphere was 2E11m in diameter (66% of Earth's orbital diameter) yet green vegetation and bodies of water could be clearly seen on its inner surface.
The star is said to be releasing a lot of prominences, but we never see the ship actually get engulfed in one of these prominences so they aren't really relevant.
Based on the presence of a habitable planet in that star system as well as the colour spectrum of the star, we can conclude that its star was very similar to Earth's star in terms of general luminosity.

 Apak 67 -- Star Trek: SF Lite
Trek taught a generation of mundanes to seek that "sci-fi experience" in this associative way, far from the deliberate dislocations and strangeness sought by genre insiders.
Trek did and does assume a world that works, though, surely a reassuring fresh breeze to anyone reading the newspapers.
In Trek's future everyone cheerfully wears spandex and looks great, a remarkable prospect for a nation which, over the last three decades, has seen the average adult add a pound of weight in each passing year.

 PsiPog.net : Telepathy   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-30)
Of all the psionic abilities, telepathy is probably the most widely known and most often practiced, so much so that its existence is regarded as a complicating factor in ESP and remote-viewing experiments: the scientists have to exclude telepathy when trying to prove or disprove clairvoyance.
Telepathy, in various forms, shows up in any number of popular science fiction and fantasy books, movies, and television programs: Star Trek, Elfquest, X-Men,...
Reduced to its simplest form, telepathy is the transfer of thoughts, perceptions, ideas, or concepts from one mind to another, without the use of the recognized physical senses.

 Jennifer Lien in Star Trek Communicator   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-30)
Of the alien races explored in depth during Star Trek's 33-year history, few seem as fragile by their very nature as do this race native to the Delta Quadrant; this race that, were it not for their dependence on a lifesustaining space array, would have gone undiscovered by the wayward crew of the U.S.S. Voyager.
While the actress downplays her contributions to the show and to her character's development, few would argue the Lien embodied through Kes a sense of wonder for the Delta Quadrant and the advancements of the 24th Century that was unmatched on the show.
While Kes would hardly be the first Star Trek character to reappear from a perceived oblivion, Lien says she might consider but does not expect making a return appearance as the Ocampan-cum-energy-being.

 Beyond the Fiv e Senses
Beings with telepathy power, that is able to communicate without sound or visual cues, are common in many science fictions.
It is most clearly demonstrated by the capabilities of Kes in Star Trek: Voyager; she apparently is able not only to manipulate objects around her with her thought, but to control the atoms, the quarks, and beyond, folding space-time.
The current knowledge in Star Trek is that telepathic power involves principle that is as yet unknown; there is no way to detect it, or to block it.

Kraith became famous within the Star Trek fanzine universe when the main-line stories by Jacqueline Lichtenberg were first published in T-Negative, edited by Ruth Berman.
At several of these Star Trek Conventions, fans held Kraith parties called 'The Affirmation of the Continuity' which was a Kraith Vulcan ceremony.
When the Star Trek movies revived the saga of Kirk's Enterprise and the controversy hit the fanzines concerning the destruction of the Enterprise onscreen, many remembered that Kraith, written years before the films, began with the destruction of the Enterprise.

For this episode, Jay was given the opportunity to combine western elements along with those of Star Trek, thus creating a very unique and entertaining score right to the point where the Enterprise flies off into the sunset.

 [No title]
Star Trek has spawned more original novels, and stories by both professionals and fans (many whom later became professionals), fan clubs, toys, games, comics, etc. than any other single show in the history of television.
Since the early 70s, those fans have been clamoring for more of their favorite spaceship and crew to be filmed - the novels and stories were just not enough to satisfy our yearnings to travel in space, albeit vicariously, and to travel where no man had gone before.

Of course, the more distant a wakeway is from any gravity wells or star, the less of a factor these things become across the board (although then other complexities arise, since solar radiation can be a handy way for pre-processing wakes into individual hydrogen and oxygen atoms for subsequent accumulation by spacecraft).
Barnard's star is an M5 red dwarf, with at least one gas giant (bigger than Jupiter) and perhaps several smaller, rocky planets orbiting it.
The wealthiest individuals and organizations may even use the Star Trek transport within their own housings, and as security measures (use of such transport technologies can make physical doorways obsolete).

 spiral sea -- editorial -- the power of global optimism
In fact, Star Trek has provided Western society--and indeed, the world--with a fascinating 30-plus-year-long thought-experiment, visualized and acted out in extreme detail, in the potential of technology for cross-cultural and trans-linguistic communications as a means of reducing culture shock and intercultural conflict.
To a surprisingly successful degree, the writers and consultants of Star Trek and its spinoffs sought to project crucial roles for technology in assisting the objectives of peace, not merely advancing weaponry for war.
Star Trek and its spin-off plots typically presume that, once communication is established, differences responsible for hostilities are usually eventually resolved.

Star Trek: The Brave and the Bold, Book One written by Keith R.A. DeCandido is the first book in a so far two book series that will encumpus all of the Star Trek genre.
So the sorry decline of "Star Trek" continues, and it looks as though after all the battles with Klingons, Romulans, Borg, and Cardassians, the enemies that will finally finish off the Federation are [weak] writers.
DeCandido presented the major characters in all of the Star Trek series with a fresh and new prospective, by allowing the reader to view the old, seasoned characters from an outside viewpoint.

 Star Wars - TvWiki, the free encyclopedia   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-30)
Star Wars is an influential science fantasy saga and fictional universe created by writer/producer/director George Lucas in the early 1970s.
For his part, Lucas claimed in a segment filmed for the THX-remastered VHS release of the original trilogy that the original Star Wars story was intended as a single film, but was later split into three because the story was too long to be told in a single film.
Lucas's intentions for Star Wars involved a grand musical sound, with leitmotifs for different characters and important objects; an approach used to great effect, for instance, in the operas of Richard Wagner.

 Star Wars - The Black Vault Encyclopedia Project   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-30)
Star Wars began with a 13-page treatment for a space adventure movie that George Lucas drafted in 1973, inspired by multiple myths and classic stories.
The Star Wars saga has also been influenced by historical events, as George Lucas claims to have drawn on World War II and the Vietnam War for inspiration.
References to the main characters and themes of Star Wars are casually made in Western society with the well-qualified assumption that others will understand the reference, without the speaker feeling the need to explain the reference, similar to the use of unelaborated references to the Bible and Greek mythology.
