Theologian Writes Paper Describing Enterprise As Paradigm For Ultimate Church Community

Dept: Star Trek

CAROLE HALLUNDBAEK, Theologian and Television Commentator, is making available her sci-fi paper:

"THERE IS NO KLINGON OR VULCAN IN CHRIST: HOW THE CREW ON THE BRIDGE OF THE ENTERPRISE EMBODY THE DREAM OF SPIRITUAL COMMUNITY."

Hallundbaek, a published writer and producer on matters of faith and science, was invited to present her Star Trek paper at Kentucky State University's Annual Conference on Science and Culture (Science and Media category) last month. She had been a conference presenter previously, often drawing together the disciplines of theology and space science in her work.

"THERE IS NO KLINGON OR VULCAN IN CHRIST" is an upbeat, humorous and academic exploration of the spiritual and psychological growth of Star Trek's crew -- and audience -- from the original 60's series to its successor, The Next Generation. In it, Hallundbaek discusses aspects of science fiction, leadership, community, race, gender and technology, all leading to what might be the ultimate Church community on board the Enterprise, or what she terms "a zero-gravity monastery."
