This is InterTREKtional, an exploration of Star Trek through an intersectional feminist lens. 

We are Ryan Ascolese and Becca Motola-Barnes. Ryan studied literary criticism and has seen every episode of Star Trek, including the animated series. Becca started watching The Next Generation before she could form memories… and she’s pretty sure she took a film class once! Star Trek is both a reflection of our society and an aspiration for our future; the stories it tells shape our world. Intersectionality explores intersecting forms of oppression, and how they affect the experiences of individuals with compound identities (such as race, gender, class, religion, sexual orientation, and *species*). 

Star Trek is for feminists… Engage!
