The origi- nal "Star Trek" series ran from 1966-1969 but spun off into a highly successful string of feature films and spin-off TV series. "Enter- prise," the fifth "Star Trek" television series, is now in its second season on UPN. The series very often used meta- phor to discuss today's prob- lems in a science fiction set- ting. "Many of the original writ- ers were Jewish, as were many of the original actors," said Wolpe. "They would sneak in little bits of Judaism into the show. We take a show, discuss what its theme was, and then look in the Bible, Talmud and other Jew- ish teachings to see what Judaism has to say about the theme." The class has touched upon many subjects over the past few years, including the Ho- locaust, the concepts ofgetzer hatov and yetzer hara (the good and evil inclinations in human beings), andparental responsibilities to children. This year, the class will ex- plore such topics as man's role as God's partner (in He- brew, shutafot), Jewish atti- tudes towards homosexuality, and how modern Judaism is tied to Jewish history.
