The Kelvin Timeline of Star Trek: Essays on J.J. Abrams' Final Frontier


In an era of reboots, restarts and retreads, J.J. Abrams' Star Trek trilogy – featuring new, prequel adventures of Kirk, Spock and the rest of the original series characters, aboard the USS Enterprise – has brought the franchise to a new generation and perfected a process that is increasingly central to entertainment media: reinvigorating the beloved classic. This collection of new essays offers the first in-depth analysis of the new trilogy and the vision of the next generation of Star Trek film-makers. Issues of gender, race, politics, economics, technology and morality – always key themes of the franchise – are explored in the 21st century context of "The Kelvin Timeline."
