Boldly going where no one has gone before, Robin Roberts forges intriguing links between feminist politics and theory and the second "Star Trek" series, "Star Trek: The Next Generation". This lively discussion shows how science fiction's ability to make the familiar strange allows "Star Trek" to expose and comment on entrenched attitudes toward gender roles and feminist issues. By having aliens or sexually neutral beings enact female dominance or passivity, experience pregnancy or maternity, or suffer rape or abortion, "Star Trek" provides viewers with a new perspective on these experiences and an antidote to explicit and implicit cultural biases. Roberts maintains that the relevance of "Star Trek: The Next Generation" to feminist issues accounts as no other factor can for the program's huge following of female fans. The incisive and innovative readings in "Sexual Generations" provide food for thought about how the final frontier can clarify pressing questions of our own space and time.
