Summary
The Ultimate Star Trek and Philosophy boldly goes where no book has gone before in pursuit of a greater philosophical understanding of the galaxy's final frontier. It reunites the editors of Star Trek and Philosophy with Starfleet's finest experts for 31 new, highly logical essays to provide a thorough examination of the Star Trek universe -- from the original series to the most recent films directed by J.J. Abrams, Star Trek (2009) and Star Trek Into Darkness (2013). The essays introduce important concepts in philosophy through the vast array of provocative issues raised by the series, such as the ethics of the Prime Directive, Star Trek's philosophy of peace, Data and Voyager's Doctor as persons, moral relativism and the Federation's quest for liberation, the effect of alternate universes on reality and identity, the Borg as transhumanists, Federation Trekonomics, and Star Trek's secular society
