3736. Redshirts and Bodycount
Star Trek, with its many generations and recent reboot, gives us the opportunity to consider the way stakes and violence have been portrayed in media from the 60s until today. Is it possible to have high stakes without violence? Is the threat of death always necessary? How does an exceptionally nonviolent movie like Star Trek IV hold up today? Is sanitized violence in fact more offensive than 'honest' violence? And is there actually any reason to strive for nonviolence, if the audience is enjoying it?
Aviya Amir, Mel Gilden, Thomas Sipos, Robert Mitchell Evans, Brad Lyau

3785. Roddenberry's Forgotten Dreams
