Physicist Lawrence Krauss has written The Physics of Star Trek, a book which postulates what phenomena might make Star Trek technology feasible, while detailing the blunders the show has made. He followed this book with a sequel, Beyond Star Trek, which applies the same approach to Independence Day, The X-Files and others. Astronomer Phil Plait takes a similar attitude in his "Bad Astronomy" website, a regular feature of which is reviews discussing the scientific mistakes in popular movies and TV shows. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Physics_and_Star_Trek
