This book contains some very interesting views on the world of Star Trek and the religious beliefs and influences that the authors have seen in the shows and movies.

Religions of Star Trek tackles these challenging questions head-on and examines in detail the humanistic vision of creator Gene Roddenberry. It is a remarkable look at one of sci-fi\'s great success stories. There are two kinds of religions that can be seen in the 24th century of Star Trek: those of dogma, and those of culture.

Earth and humans of the 24th Century Star Trek Universe show some traces of cultural religion, but dogmatic religion is not shown to have any widespread adherence, presumably because the advance of human knowledge has shone.

Star Trek Has Always Been More Religious Than Its Creators Want or Realize It’s a stretch to say that “religion basically no longer exists” in the Star Trek universe. As a lifelong Trekkie, I want any new Star Trek title to be good, but I’ve had my doubts about the upcoming Star Trek: Discovery, which premiers September 24 on CBS.

"Religions of Star Trek" has such a scholarly, high-minded tone that one feels the unreasonable impulse to place Gene Roddenberry alongside the names of Jesus, Moses, Confucius and : Joel Hirschhorn.

As a secular humanist myself, (or as some people prefer, atheist), I find the values and morals of Star Trek and more lax religious people to be completely compatible regardless of dogma and canon.

The authors analyze Star Trek's many religious characters, tracing the roots of scientific humanism to more contemporary aspects of religion and spirituality. Through it all, the creators' visionary outlook remains constant: a humanistic faith in free will and the salvific nature of dispassionate scientific inquiry.

Praise for Religions of Star. Holy writings Edit. The main written work used by Christians was the name of the Genesis Device was taken from the Christian Bible (the Book of Genesis) which described the beginnings of life on Earth.(Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan) A well-known precept from the Bible was "Love your neighbor."(VOY: "Fair Haven") Parts of the Bible described the end of the world; however, Jean-Luc.
