Note: Star Trek Thoughts on Religion in The Next Generation

In comment on May 2, 2011 at 3:14 pm

I previously noted that the “Star Trek Hypothesis” on religion (essentially, the Secularization thesis projected into the future) was a very consistent part of the Star Trek narrative world.  I also noted that this seemed to be more consistently true of the Original Series than of the Next Generation series. Really, I’m not a trekker, so this is all relatively new.  But, since posting that, I came across this brief gem of Lieutenant Worf (Klingon) describing his religion.  Takes a bit of a Nietzschean turn, I thought. And yes, it made me laugh.
