New from Voyageur Press comes Star Trek: The Complete Unauthorized History. The complete guide to all six television series and eleven feature films.
This is the first book to combine an authoritative history of the Star Trek franchise—including all six television series and eleven feature films—with anecdotes about the show from those who helped shape it from the outside in: the fans. Star Trek expert Robert Greenberger covers everything from show creator Gene Roddenberry’s initial plans for a series combining science-fiction and Western elements, the premiere of the original series in 1966, its cancellation, the franchise’s return in an animated series, and its subsequent history on television and film, up to expectations for the 2013 J.J. Abrams film. Along the way, Greenberger analyzes Star Trek’s unique cultural impact and tremendous cult following, including the famous (and first ever) save-the-show mail campaign. But this isn’t a sugar-coated history; this book chronicles the missteps as well as the achievements of Roddenberry and others behind the franchise.
With 256 pages this book is illustrated with a large collection of photographs of memorabilia, many of which have never been seen before in print. For anyone who is a fan of Star Trek or wants to know the story of one of the most successful media franchises in history, then this is a must buy.
