The Unofficial Making of the Original Series
While J.J. Abrams reimagines Star Trek for the current generation, Trek Classic goes back to the beginning to explore the creation, development and evolution of the original 1966-69 television series that inspired him. Armed with the voices of dozens of writers, directors, producers and actors, veteran entertainment journalist Edward Gross goes behind the scenes of every episode of the original Star Trek.
New material in this revised edition (which had its beginnings as a part of Captains’ Logs: The Complete Trek Voyages), in addition to the satirical artwork Tom Holtkamp, explores the connection between key guest characters or episodes and future adventures set in the universe created by the late Gene Roddenberry.
Plus a special appendix section provides an in depth behind the scenes look at the Deep Space Nine episode “Trials and Tribble-ations,” a 30th anniversary tribute to the original that ingeniously ties the two shows together.
Whether you’re a veteran fan or newly converted, these are the original voyages of Kirk, Spock, McCoy, Sulu, Uhura, Chekov and Scotty.
Where J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek ends, Trek Classic begins.
Trek Classic: The Unofficial Making of the Original Series is available for $15 (postage paid) in the United States and $20 (postage paid) outside of America.
