The next entry in Sterling's Popular Culture Psychology series features 20 chapters and exclusive interviews with cast members and Rod Roddenberry. In a fun and accessible way, Star Trek Psychology delves deep into the psyches of the show's well-known and beloved characters. The trailblazing franchise spans five TV series, 13 films, and countless novelizations. It celebrated, as no other form of entertainment had before, a world filled with space-traveling dreams and human diversity. In the process, it became one of the oldest and most popular sci-fi franchises of all time. Star Trek Psychology uses academic and scientific theories to analyze and answer such questions as Why do Trek's aliens look so human? and How can the starship's holodeck be used for therapy? This compilation examines alien neurobiology, discusses identity formation for shapeshifters, explores the importance of emotion for artificial intelligence, and much more.

From the Author:

"Through Star Trek, we are united in our passion for unraveling the larger questions of our place in the universe. We are all a part of this great exploration in the continuing human adventure...which is only just beginning." 
- Chris Gore, from his foreword

"The characters in Star Trek explore the Milky Way and know only portions of it, much the way we know only portions of the mysteries of the human mind. In this book, we explore these mysteries by exploring Star Trek's characters and stories. ...Star Trek characters explore the range of human behavior - not only the "new frontier" than President John F. Kennedy mentioned when inspiring travel into space but the mental frontier as well. These stories are always about understanding people."
- Travis Langley, PhD, from his introduction

From the Inside Flap:

How does psychology explain the existential irony that grappling with death is part of life? When does artificial intelligence stop being artificial? Where are we going in this vast universe? Explore these intriguing themes and more in Star Trek Psychology: The Mental Frontier.
