This thesis examines the portrayal of race in science fiction television, using the shows Firefly, The 100, and Battlestar Galactica as case studies. By reading these shows as racial projects, I explore how they both shape and are shaped by current racial ideologies. I argue here that these three shows support the structure of colorblind racism by maintaining current beliefs regarding race and racialized sexuality through frameworks of Orientalism (both old and new) and necropolitics.
