Science fiction series have remained a staple of American television from its inception: classic programs such as "The Twilight Zone," "The Outer Limits," and "Star Trek," along with recent and current series including "Babylon 5" and "Stargate SG-1," have been some of the most enduring and influential of all television shows. In this chronological survey, author M. Keith Booker examines this phenomenon and provides in-depth studies of the most important of these series. Science Fiction Television traces the development of the genre as a distinct cultural phenomenon within the context of broader developments in American culture as a whole.

In the process, it offers a unique and informative guide for television fans and science fiction fans alike, one whose coverage is unprecedented in its scope and breadth. A must-read for anyone interested in its subject or in American popular culture, "Science Fiction Television" is a perceptive and entertaining history of one of television's most lasting forms of entertainment.
