How important is the individual in a cultural group? How do humans communicate across cultural lines? What commonalities do all cultures share? How do ethical differences affect cultures? This book considers these and other fundamental questions about human existence in a deeply connected world through an examination of the Star Trek universe and "trekkie" fandom subculture. The author explores anthropological concepts concerning human interaction and describes how Star Trek fans self identify and form a lively community while maintaining the timeless popularity of the franchise.
