"Space, the final frontier. These are the voyages of the starship Enterprise. Its continuing mission: to explore strange new worlds, to seek out new lives and new civilizations, to go boldly where no one has gone before"
The main setting of the series is the famous starship "Enterprise", where most of the sequences take place...
The key-place of the Enterprise is the "Bridge", the piloting room of the spaceship.
The trio of Star Trek - Spock, Kirk, and Mac Coy, is the center of the series. Each one of them symbolizes one of our three fundamental levels:
The body, and beyond that the material world, to which our physical body belongs
The soul, centre of emotions
The mind, center of intelligence and conscience.
The formed whole reconstitutes the human person in its entirety.
Mr SPOCK - THE SPIRIT
Pointed ears, elongated face, eyebrows up, inscrutable expression, he is half-Vulvan and half-Terrian, but his physical appearance is Vulcan, as his hight sence of logic, and his advanced telepathic abilities. He is posted at the data-processing scanner of the Enterprise, as one of the main spiritual functions is to "see".
Captain James T. KIRK - THE SOUL
Typical positive heroe, he represents all the qualities of the human generosity of spirit. Determined, imaginative, intuitive or even inspired, his attachment to the Enterprise is practically carnal. The soul, it's Captain Kirk..
Dr Leonard MAC COY - THE BODY
The body in Star Trek, it's Mac Coy. His job is the body again as Doctor-Officer of the Enterprise. For this reason he can veto the decisions of the Captain if he considers his mental health affected. Exactly as the body which sometimes expresses its "veto" by a psycho-sommatic disease.
Both moaner and warm-hearted, always thoroughgoing, he is the intransigent guardian of the great human values. He is the common sense voice.
The Star Trek's trio, Spock, Kirk and Mac Coy represent the whole individual. And the "Enterprise" is quite simply a metaphor of our life. And life sence is indeed, in a certain extent, "to explore strange new worlds, to seek out new lifeforms, new civilizations, and to boldly go where no one has gone before, in short to evolve... The Star Trek opening takes on its full meaning.
And the "captain" of this trip is the soul, the center of the human being...
