Example text

It gives Americans a legitimate identity with which they can sympathise, and assume, in order to make Star Trek’s vision of the future seem more real. 2 There are many stories played out week after week but who is telling them? J. Hawthorn also points out that the ‘telling’ focuses our attention on the story so much that it itself can become central to the experience of the story; it can become part of the story and part of the recipient of the story. It is obvious from these analyses of narrative that the narrator is important, but it does not necessarily rule out Star Trek as a narrative.

Critics have understood historical narratives as didactic approaches forming links with the past in a literary arrangement. I am saying that Star Trek achieves the same thing through the visual media of television and film. To refer back to Sobchack, Star Trek looks ‘backward to the imagination of a textual past’ and projects that ‘history’ forward through the depiction of a utopian, futuristic version of modern-day America. Another scholar of literary criticism was Erich Auerbach, who analysed western literature and its delineation of what is real and what 30 Living with Star Trek is fiction in his book Mimesis: The Representation of Reality in Western Literature (1953).

The final frontier. These are the voyages of the Starship Enterprise. Its continuing mission, to explore strange new worlds, to seek out new life and new civilisations, to boldly go where no one has gone before…5 As I have already mentioned, Star Trek makes much use of the common cultural narratives to communicate its own form of historical discourse, and even then there are only a handful of them. In this chapter, I will outline the types of narratives Star Trek uses for its representation of history and the theoretical underpinnings that form the basis of its popularity and diverse appeal.
