Enterprise Zones: Critical Positions on Star Trek
(Westview Press, Hardcover $69.00; Paperback $16.50)

"The purpose of Enterprise Zones is to critically address the complex representational nature and emblematic status of Star Trek in order to interrogate and challenge the ethical system Star Trek produces."

Uh huh.

So here you have it, many long hard years of graduate school, many of those hours spent in the TV room with the engineering students. In Enterprise Zones, thirteen young cultural studies experts take on Star Trek's supposedly utopian future as their academic mission. If you find yourself wondering about Spock and Kirk's "relationship," or how militarism and conflicting views of masculinity intersect in Worf, then you may have found some kindred spirits.
