We have discussed the original series Star Trek episodes “Let That Be Your Last Battlefield” and “The Cloud Minders” as cultural artifacts or “social documents” that illustrate social and cultural issues related to race and status during the 1960’s. Your paper will analyze one of these episodes -paying particular attention to symbolic content- and show how Star Trek takes a position on these issues. Use dialogue from the episode (quotes) to support your analysis. You will also research Star Trek and its contributions to social commentary and work what you find into the paper in support of your analysis. You should use the library databases, though you might also find some good material on the internet. Connect scenes and dialogue to the historical people and events of the time. Whose voice or voices represent the teachings of Dr. King? How are Malcolm X’s viewpoints represented? Who represents the voice of racism? Be specific. Quote sources.The fine print: The paper is to be a minimum of five pages. The paper is to be presented in MLA format and have a works cited page. Use the 12 pt. Times roman font. This draft will be graded. Reach out to me through email if you want to discuss the assignment and I will schedule a Zoom conference or we can chat on FaceTime.
