The Original Still the Best

The first book written about the original Star Trek is still the best --comprehensive inside view of how a TV show is made. Even though it was written 40 years ago, much about TV episode filming is still true today.
And the story of Star Trek is a tribute to the victory of intelligence in programing over pap ("Survivor" anyone?). It's fun to read (or reread) about the diffculty the series had in getting put on the air, and staying there for 3 seasons.
The Cast and Character bios --though familiar to almost everybody now-- are well written and fun.
The first is still the best!
The seller delivered to me in record time and in exactly the condition promised.

Very Informative!

Every since I was a kid "trekkie" from the late sixties and early seventies, I have loved the various "behind the scenes" type of information about Star Trek. This has been a favorite book of mine for many years. Considered one of the best writer's guides of its time for a TV series, the background info on the show is all here. From the initial character bios to the villians to the description and diagrams of the Enterprise. Discussion on warp drive, memos from Gene Roddenberry, etc. if you are looking for information on the original Star Trek in a historical viewpoint, this is great one for it.
