An Analysis of Bardic, Ovate and Druidic Figures in Science Fiction
By Sarah Rooke

Science fiction presents us with many ‘what if?’ situations from the writers of the shows as to what the future (or the past or present) may resemble, whether this is in our present dimension or from a parallel one, who can tell! I present here a brief analysis of Bardic, Ovate and Druidic like figures found in some shows that have more than an archetypal quality or feel about them.

Babylon Five

Delenn fulfils the role of the High Priestess, or the Ovate perfectly. She has a mystical persona about her that I find resembling the character of Morgan Vivien le Fey from Dion Fortune’s ‘The Sea Priestess’, and as hinted at in the Third Season ‘Late Delivery from Avalon’, the Lady of the Lake, who was known as Nimue in the Arthurian legends, and who also has an ethereal feel about her. Her transformation into a half Minbari/human has may associations with Re Birth and Initiation. Lorien suits the role of the Hierophant from the Tarot, the archetypal Druid, or Wise One (or even First One!). He who knows the answers to the Mysteries of Life, the Universe and Everything. He who is timeless and ageless. He who has no beginning or end, like the Ourobouros (serpent eating its own tail). As mentioned by the character of Marcus Cole in ‘Late Delivery from Avalon’ (I wonder what JMS read for that episode!), Kosh could probably pass for Merlin, the Magician, the archetypal Time Lord, also known as Hermes to the Greeks, or Thoth/Tehuti to the Egyptians. I find Lennier fulfilling the role of the Apprentice, on a learning curve from his teacher, Delenn, but also possessing a fair amount of wisdom on his own, rather like the Bard at the start of their training. Jeffrey Sinclair fulfils the role of Druid in his transformation into Valen, thus founding the Grey Council and Minbari religion. The Triad of Sinclair/Valen, Delenn and Sheridan as ‘The One’ has many mystical correlations to it, as in the phrase of Zathras, ‘What was, is and shall be’ (War Without End’).

Star Trek

In Classic Trek, I find that the Vulcan High Priestess T’Lar fulfilled the role of High Priestess on ‘The Search for Spock’. Uhura could easily pass for the Bard with her love of ‘Star Songs’, as would Spock himself, with his Vulcan harp, a very Bardic symbol. Sybok, in ‘The Final Frontier’, reminds us of the thin line between genius and madness, but in a strange way, he also portrays the Ovate well. In The Next Generation, I find that Data portrays the Bard with his love of poetry (Ode to Spot) and music, also in a similar vein, he appears to us as the Magician. Captain Picard fulfils the Bardic role with his flute playing. He also portrays the role of the Druid in being able to listen to everyone’s opinion, and then make a decision based on the available information, so being wise. Deanna Troi portrays the role of the Ovate perfectly, in being the empathy and sensing emotions (or the medium or psychic). Chief O’Brien reluctantly found himself in the role of the Bard in the DS9 episode ‘The Storyteller’, and Jake Sisko appears Bardic with his love of writing. Kai Opaka would fulfil the role of the Druid, in being aware of the Emissary and the Celestial Temple with the Prophets. The Ovate in DS9 could well pass to Jadzia Dax with her many lives (an interesting look at reincarnation), or even Major Kira with her deeply rooted Bajoran beliefs. Vedek Bareil fulfilled the role of the Hierophant, as does Captain Sisko himself as the Emissary. In Voyager. Chakotay appears as the Druid with his Native American beliefs in being close to the Ancestors and Nature. Kes, with her developing telepathic abilities and in learning medicine, would fulfil the Ovate role. The role of the Bard, I would give to Captain Janeway, as through her eyes we learn new things about space in the Delta quadrant, as given in her logs.

There are of course others, and other peoples perceptions may differ from mine. You may also have noticed some others I have not. For example, Obiwan Kenobi from Star Wars is a Druidic like figure, with Luke Skywalker in time becoming one. Or that Fox Mulder from the X Files is Ovate like in his approach, with Dana Scully in the reluctant role as one. The basic thing to remember is that the Bard is the Storyteller and Musician, the Ovate is the Seer and Mystic, and the Druid is the Magician and Teacher. I hope that you have found this brief analysis informative and interesting.


A Brief Synopsis of Metaphysical Aspects in Science Fiction
By Sarah Rooke

Various science fiction shows manage to convey many metaphysical and mystical concepts in their content, which makes one wonder what the writers of these shows have been reading up on, that leads them to include them in their scripts and story arcs!

I do not intend to go in depth, but present a brief synopsis of some well known ones and give a few comments as well

Star Trek

In Classic Trek, we have our old friend Vulcan mysticism. I recall the first time I saw the crystal headdresses of the Vulcan priestesses in The Search for Spock – very reminiscent of Atlantean occultism! I am informed by author Murry Hope that the Vulcan salute is in fact Atlantean in origin, and was used to seal the auras of temple trainees and initiates in the Old Country. However, Leonard Nimoy once said that it stems from the Hebrew tradition. 

In The Next Generation, we have interesting Archetypal images as portrayed by Picard, Riker, Troi, Geordi, Beverley, Data, Worf, Wesley and Guinan. Steve Wilson has written on this subject, but suffice to say they each correspond to the planets and Greek Gods i.e. Riker – Jupiter, Deanna – Venus, Beverley – Moon, Worf - Mars, Data – Mercury etc. There are several Jungian correspondences as well for the psychologist to consider.

As for Deep Space Nine, I find the Bajoran religion fascinating (to coin a phrase). The Celestial Temple with the Prophets, the Orbs, Vedek Assembly and leadership of the Kai I can relate to (they have some correlations in Paganism, Wicca and Druidry). The first time I saw the Bajoran wormhole, I was awestruck at the effects. What more can I say, other than quote Major Kira’s Bajoran saying, that the land and the people are one.

In Voyager, we have Chakotay’s Native American beliefs, with the Animal Guide and his personal Medicine Bag. This is simply a matter of Shamanism that has been practised by ancient cultures since time immemorial, and is certainly not new. Also, many Spiritualists will be familiar with Spirit Guides. The Celtic tradition favours a ‘totemic helper’ to enable one to walk between the worlds.

Babylon Five

The Minbari views of the soul seem to me to be very interesting! This accords a lot with metaphysical teaching in the Mysteries. I also find that the Book of G’Quan is similar to the ideals behind the Wiccan Book of Shadows, that each new noviate must copy by hand from their teacher. The idea of the Triluminary I am familiar with, Solara writes of Trigulation being the completion of duality. Various New Age sources also go a lot into Sacred Geometry, but it is not new. The Knights Templar utilised it a lot, as did many occult schools in the 19th century, i.e. the Order of the Golden Dawn, in their magical workings. The Eternal battle of light and darkness is found in many cultures and traditions; the Egyptian story of Isis and Osiris, Set and Horus, for example. Also the Arthurian legends concerning Morgana le Fey and Merlin, Mordred and Arthur. Some writers view this ‘battle’ is not over, but is continually going on in the cosmic scheme of things, especially at the Advent of the Aquarian Age or the Aeon of Horus (as it is known in the Hermes Trismegistus).  And these myths are really describing the events as happening now, as well, and our place in them

I hope these brief notes give the reader some starting point in closely examining these shows from now on, and also with a view to look out for where certain ideologies and philosophies may arise!

Wise, merry and blessed be. Awen /l\ 


Psychic Powers and Sci Fi
By Sarah Rooke, Archdruidess

There are many references to Psychic Powers in the realms of Science Fiction. First, let us briefly examine what the different Psychic Powers are.

Telepathy – Communication beyond the normal senses

For example, mind reading, thought communications, mind control, mental defences.

Extrasensory Perception – ESP –To perceive things beyond the normal senses

For example, clairvoyance (far seeing), clairsentience (far sensing), clairaudience (far hearing), premonitions, precognition, far seeing

Psychokinetic abilities – Manipulation of the general environment

For example, telekinesis (moving objects), pyrokinesis (speeding up molecules), electrokinesis (control of electrons), cyrokinesis (slowing of molecules)

Also, there is astral projection, teleportation (apportation), chronokinesis (control of time), and psycho metabolic abilities (healing)

It is quite interesting that the Charmed Ones show a range of the powers from all three categories – e.g. Phoebe (ESP), Piper and Paige (Psychokinetic abilities). And there is the telepaths from Babylon Five, the Vulcan’s from Star Trek, and the Jedi from Star Wars who presented telekinetic abilities. 

So how does one set out to develop these psychic abilities, believed by many to be latent in all of us? Well, there are many books and websites around for those who are interested in this field. British medium David Wells has recently brought out a book called ‘Complete Guide to Developing Your Psychic Skills’ and American medium John Edward has a series of CDs out entitled ‘Developing Your Own Psychic Powers’ for those so inclined. Also, you may wish to trawl through the local classifieds for local Spiritualist groups who are holding developing circles. 

There is no guarantee you will find results straight away, indeed it can take one years to develop, whilst others may find it easier. The important thing to remember is to develop at your own pace and not rush. Also, another important point is to protect yourself during any working, (e.g. by casting a circle, by saying a simple prayer, or by visualising white light) and to seal your aura afterwards and grounding yourself fully.
I was taught to do this by visualising drawing a circle of light around oneself and by having something to eat and drink afterwards, as this breaks any psychic link. 

First, you will need to find a spirit guide. Slipping into meditation, visualise that you are going through a door to a garden on a sunny day, for this is the Summerlands. A being will come to you who will act as your guide. Note what sort of spirit this is, and make a note of their name and what they say. They are here to help and advise you in any way. For now you are ready for the next stage on your journey.



There are lots of heroes and heroines in sci fi and fantasy we can aspire to. The mythology behind the ethos of heroes is not new, for the ancient Greeks and Celts (and Medieval writers) certainly had their share of them

Lets take a few examples of modern day ones (in no particular order):-

HEROES (i.e. dudes who can kick ass)

Here I list Angel. Col Jack O'Neill, Captain John Sheridan, Captain James Kirk, Commander William Riker, Lt Col John Shepherd, Neo

HEROINES (i.e. chicks who can kick ass)

Here I list Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Teyla, Captain Kathryn Janeway, Delenn, Col Kira Nerys, Trinity, Lt Col Samantha Carter

Now lets take them each in turn:

ANGEL - Yes, the vampire with the soul from Buffy, who got his own series. Very much the warrior who loves his swords. What else can I say but swoon? Played by David Boreanaz, who can bite my neck any day

COL JACK O'NEILL - Oh, I love Richard Dean Anderson. The expressions he makes on Stargate are just so funny, as are some of the things he comes out with. Its a pity he's now left the series, as I miss him

CAPTAIN JOHN SHERIDAN - The gung ho captain from Babylon 5 played by Bruce Boxleitner. Yes, the Don Johnson from space as someone once called him. Having met him, he's also very sexy in real life

CAPTAIN JAMES KIRK - The original sci fi hero from Classic Star Trek. Always a womaniser. However, William Shatner was quite good looking in his early days. Funny how things turn out years later, eh?

COMMANDER WILLIAM RIKER - Will they, wont they? The tension between Riker and Deanna Troi certainly intrigued many Star Trek: The Next Generation fans for many years. Played by Jonathan Frakes

LT COL JOHN SHEPPHARD - Played by Joe Flannigan, this character from Stargate Atlantis is very Jack O'Neill like. I actually quite like him, he's quite funny in a similar vein and is very much go and get them

NEO - This character from the Matrix trilogy will just leave you reeling for more. Played by Keanu Reeves, I love the action where this guy just beats ten bells out of his enemies using ultra cool martial arts

BUFFY - Played by Sarah Michelle Gellar; this character wowed everyone with standing up and fighting vampires and demons. Such ability just screams 'girl power'. It also inspired two girls to fight off a real life attack

TEYLA - I love this character from Stargate Atlantis, she is such a great warrior. I also love the way she can beat someone using just two sticks (it is just so cool!). Played by Rachel Luttrell

CAPTAIN KATHRYN JANEWAY - The female captain from Star Trek: Voyager. Certainly a go get them girl, she is very much like Kirk in some ways, strong and unwavering. Played by Kate Mulgrew

DELENN - The High priestess of Babylon 5 if there ever was any. A very mysterious, spiritual yet strong warrior like character (she can really put up a fight if need be). Played by Mira Furlan

COL KIRA NERYS - This fiery Bajoran character played by Nana Visitor in Star Trek: Deep Space Nine is very spiritual, yet very strong. She was a freedom fighter and also has no qualms about speaking her mind

TRINITY - Played by Carrie-Ann Moss in the Matrix trilogy, just screams girl power. I love the cool leather clothes she wears and also how she manages to fight off the baddies with amazing feats

LT COL SAMANTHA CARTER - At last, one of the few females on TV to be seen as strong and with brains. Played by Amanda Tapping, this character from Stargate just continues to inspire me

JOHN CRICHTON - Played by Ben Browder, I love his approach to what’s happening in the universe around him. The astronaut who was flung into a distant galaxy and who also has a penchant for wormholes

AERYN - The former peacekeeper played by Claudia Black. Such a strong, female warrior character. Always in black (no pun intended), she certainly screams girl power. Also in love with Crichton

ZHAAN - The female Delvian blue skinned priestess, played by Virginia Hey. Very spiritual and mysterious. Also very Goddessy if you think about it, due to her love of crystals and meditating

D'ARGO - Farscape's version of a Klingon, he is a Luxon warrior and very much a strong character. Also loves his swords and guns

RYGEL - The former Hyneian Dominar. Very much a funny character, who goes around on his sled. Also tends to chicken out of danger

CHIANNA - The Nibari former thief, who can really put up a fight if need be, Also in lover with D'Argo. Also quite sensitive to things around her

STARK - The guy who has one eye covered, but when its revealed can let someone pass over quickly if the person is near death

SCORPIUS - The mysterious leader of the Peacekeepers. Is he evil or is he not so bad? What are his true intentions, find out next week!

CRAIS - The mad former peacekeeper who chased Crichton and eventually captained Moya’s son, before he blew it up with him inside

SCORCOSA - A strange being this, she can irradiate places and also if her fingers are chopped off, attach them. But what are her true intentions?

MOYA - The Leviathan spaceship that is also a living being. Controlled by the Pilot, however she can also take matters in her own hands if she wants

NORANTI - The wacky wise woman, always with her herbs and dust that she blows in peoples faces. There’s something very crone, oops enchantress like about her

JEWEL - The young, perhaps not so young, princess who was left behind on a planet of newly awakened priests to instruct them. Known for a very loud scream that pierces

Sci fi tells the eternal battle of good versus evil e.g. Babylon 5 (Vorlons and Shadows), Stargate (SGC versus the Goa'uld), Star Wars (Rebels against the Empire) etc. Hope you have enjoyed this brief resume, and I’m sorry if I missed someone’s favourite off, but this is only to give you an idea

Wonder Woman – AKA Diana Prince – AKA Princess Diana
By Sarah Rooke, Archdruidess

Wonder Woman was born on Paradise Island – home of the Amazons. She was the daughter of Queen Hippolyta and sister to Drusilla, AKA Wonder Girl.

Princess Diana was chosen to lead Steve Trevor back to America when his plane crashed on the Island, after she had won a contest called ‘Bullets and Bracelets’.

The Amazons were a group of legendary ageless female warriors who had left ancient Greece centuries ago.  They were a matriarchal society of beautiful women, who possessed great strength, agility, intelligence and powers.  Amazonian philosophy was one of love and peace, and men were viewed with suspicion.  

Wonder Woman’s costume is called the ‘Garb of Justice’, but is based on the American ‘stars and stripes’.  Wonder Woman has been given gifts by the gods to help her:

Lasso of truth – forged by Hephaestus from the girdle of Gaia.

Bullet proof bracelets – formed from a piece of Athena’s shield, the aegis

Tiara - which acts as a boomerang (she can also use it to communicate with her mother)

Belt of strength – gives her Amazonian powers when not on Paradise Island

In addition to this, she has also been blessed with the following:

Strength by Demeter

Love by Aphrodite

Wisdom by Athena

Rapport with animals by Artemis

Sisterhood by Hestia

Speed by Mercury

She was said to be "beautiful as Aphrodite, wise as Athena, swifter than Mercury, and stronger than Hercules”.

Wonder Woman’s policy was one of not resorting to lethal force. Though she only killed when she had no other choice.  Thus, you will often see Wonder Woman throwing or pushing her enemies out of the way. . 

Wonder Woman first appeared in the 1940’s with DC Comics as part of the Justice League of America. Her character was modelled on early Feminist ideals by Charles Moulton.  Back then her costume consisted of a red and gold bustier, with blue and white culottes.  By the 1960’s, it had changed to what we know today, the red and gold bustier, with a pair of blue and white shorts, and her character embraced facets of Greek mythology.  In 2010, Wonder Woman’s costume was changed to a blue and white jacket, red and gold top, and black leggings.

There was a Wonder Woman movie in 1975 starring Cathy Lee Crosby, though sadly it didn’t do very well and the character didn’t have any powers (as it was based on the comic’s Avengers style character) and she also wore a red and navy jumpsuit. 

Then in 1976, a new Wonder Woman series was commissioned starring Lynda Carter and it was set during World War II.  In this, Diana Prince wore a military uniform and Steve Trevor (Lyle Waggoner) was a major.    

Trivia:  The Wonder Woman transformation spin was the concept of Lynda Carter, who devised it as a means for Diana to quickly change into Wonder Woman to save time in filming. The explosion effect was also added after the pilot. In this series, you will also see Wonder Woman wear a red top and white pair of trousers in one episode.  This was due to the guest star refusing to act with Lynda Carter whilst she wore a ‘bathing suit’ (as he described it) as Wonder Woman. And Wonder Woman also has a habit of losing her bracelets, magic belt and lasso in a number of episodes in this series, though she always retrieved them at the end.    

A year later, the costume was modified for Season Two and the series was set in the 1970’s.  Again, Diana has to win a ‘bullet and bracelets’ contest to have the right to be Wonder Woman and return a group of people whose plane had crashed on Paradise Island to America.  In this, Diana is a secret agent of the IADC and Steve Trevor is her boss.  The series also featured a computer called IRA and a robot called Rover, whom knew who she was.  This reformatted version lasted another season, and then the series ended.

Various attempts have been made since the 1990’s to resurrect Wonder Woman either as a movie or TV series, with many actresses lined up for the role.  Unfortunately, many of these have not got beyond the development or screenplay stage.  Most notable was by Deborah Joy Levine of the New Adventures of Superman fame, and in 2006 by Buffy creator Joss Whedon.  A Wonder Woman animated movie was released in 2009 straight onto DVD, with the main character being voiced by Keri Russell.  A new Wonder Woman movie was in production, starring Adrianne Palicki, but her new costume caused abit of a stir amongst fans and the project was cancelled. A new Superman/Batman film is now in the pipeline, with Gal Gadot tipped to play the legendary Amazonian Princess.

As the Amazons would say, may Athena be with you.
