Covering all four Star Trek series, the authors approaches the ethical dilemmas faced by the Star Trek characters, and uses the show as a perfect prism through which to view right and wrong from ancient times all the way through to the 24th century.
In a lively and engaging style, Judith Barad focuses on the ethical dilemmas faced by each character in a particular Star Trek episode, and then examines how a recognised philosopher and/or ethicist - such as Plato, Aristotle, Kant, or Nietzsche - would treat the problem. Barad then reveals how the characters themselves resolved the situation within the series.
