My biggest issue was the part about Relaters. As much as I enjoy Guinan, and as much as it's probably healthier to be like Guinan than McCoy, Bones is my main man.

Pretty generic, but if you want a pep talk with a Star Trek theme, here you go.

But I appreciated the lack of gender essentialism, and the open advocacy of taking fictional characters as mentors.

I bought this book on a lark ... I don't read self-help books but I love Star Trek. Ultimately, the book is a bit silly -- but, with an open mind, it did cause me to think about different things in my life. The prose is good for reflecting on yourself and how you relate to Star Trek characters. If you can find it cheap, a fun recommend for Trekkies.
