American Science Fiction Tv: Star Trek, Stargate and Beyond
From Star Trek to Farscape and Stargate SG-1, and the epic series Babylon 5, Jan Johnson-Smith shows how, in line with national political upheavals in the 1960s, this vibrant and perplexing genre set about developing the myth of the Western frontier into deep space. Looking at the sense of wonder that infuses science fiction, she traces the genre back to the heroic journeys of the Classical epic as well as to the notion of the sublime so deeply embedded in the American consciousness. Drawing on Caldwell's notion of televisuality, she show how sfx and cgi technologies have made it possible to visually render whole new worlds - and so deliver whole new stories.

The chapter on Space: Above and Beyond was also compelling enough to get me to watch the show, finally.
