FedCon 27 | Vortrag | Star Trek = Sozialismus?

The lecture Star Trek – A Socialist Vision? by David X. Noack looks at the political and social conditions under which Star Trek: The Original Series was developed in the 1960s. In addition to the conditions of network television in the USA in the 1950s and 1960s (for example, for comparison, The Twilight Zone, Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour and The Lieutenant), a look at the political views and careers of some actors in front of and behind the camera at Star Trek is dared (e. g. Leonard Nimoy’s and George Takei’s careers near and in the Democratic Party of the USA).

Furthermore, the political system, political economy and economics in the United Federation of Planets are examined by means of many clips. It is noticeable that there is no money in the economy of the future, but other exchange equivalents develop.

Lecturer: David X. Noack
Duration: 90 min  -  The Lecture will be held in: german
