Questions about good and evil, right and wrong, power and corruption are discussed in language that,is both readable and compelling as the authors show, how the program has evolved over the years to address society’s changing values. For this century and beyond, The Ethics of “Star Trek” is an intriguing look at a brilliantly imagined-world and what it can teach us about how to live.
