29 – Faith and Star Trek

by Jill

I talk about the role of faith in Star Trek and how religion was often portrayed in the show due to Gene Roddenberry’s atheism. However, there were some instances where faith was mentioned positively, such as in the episode “Bread and Circuses” and with Nichelle Nichols, a devout Christian. I discuss the potential for faith to be included in future science fiction and entertainment.
