The World of Star Trek by David Gerrold (1984 edition)

This week's item is another Star Trek book:

This book is written by David Gerrold, most famous for authoring The Trouble With Tribbles, but he also wrote The Cloud Minders, as well as a couple of episodes from the animated series, and he helped start Star Trek the Next Generation.

This book is the 1984 "updated and revised edition," and includes material on the first three Star Trek movies (all that had been made at the time). The original edition was published in 1966, and there don't appear to be any more recent editions.

I have only read parts of this book, so I won't try to review it. There are interesting interviews with the actors and other people involved with making Star Trek, and lots of black-and-white pictures of the episodes and the first two movies.

There is quite a selection of pictures from the
episodes and the first two movies.

Next Week on Zach Trek: Stop in next Thursday to see a bean. Yes, a bean.
