In the Star Trek series "Deep Space Nine" one episode is unique for dealing with the attempt to form a union.  It's called "Bar Association" (Season 4, Episode 16), in which workers at Quark's Bar on the space station go on strike to form a union.  You can watch it on line for free here, or get it through Netflix or your local branch of the Multnomah County Library.  In this conversation between the Old Mole's Joe Clement and Dave, a Portand labor activist and "nerd extraordinaire, " we hear how this episode reflects the contradictions between workers' solidarity and American individualism.
