The Star Trek Compendium by Allan Asherman

This week's featured item is an essential volume to a Star Trek library:

This book, published in 1993, is a "Revised and Updated" edition, featuring information on Star Trek VI. It has chapters covering the creation of Star Trek, followed by chapters covering every single Star Trek episode, giving a brief synopsis followed by interesting behind-the-scenes information on the episode. There is also at least one picture from every episode. After this there are chapters covering the period between the TV series and movies, including synopses of each episode from the animated series. Next, there are detailed synopses and behind-the-scenes information for each of the movies, and, lastly, the "indices" -- this might be the only Star Trek book with more than one index. The indices index the episodes and characters of original Star Trek.

I like this most of all for the interesting information and anecdotes about the episodes and movies.

There is at least one scene pictured from each episode.

Next Week on Zach Trek: On Tuesday, stop by for a Star Trek music video featuring a non-Star Trek TV character. On Thursday, stop by to see a Star Trek movie not yet seen on Zach Trek in a format not yet seen on Zach Trek.

This book can be had (at a very reasonable price) at
