Science Fiction explores possibilities of the past, present and future. So does astrology! Astrologers are often ardent science fiction fans and what better piece of science fiction to consider than Star Trek?
Of course, trying to work with the astrology of science fiction characters poses some interesting challenges to astrology, for example:
• First you have to deal with a larger question: What happens to astrology if humans colonize space?
• And, of course, does astrology even make sense for fictional characters and stories?
• Another consideration is whether or not our science fiction tales reflect an astrological zeitgeist?
Star Trek writers and fans have created birth places, dates and times for Star Trek characters. These are the three critical pieces of information needed by an astrologer to create a natal chart. So you can find articles on the web considering the charts not only for Gene Roddenberry, the creator of the Star Trek universe, or the first date and time the show first aired, but also of the actual characters in the show.
