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."
