The World of Star Trek


Author(s): David Gerrold

Book Series: Reference Manuals
Book Number:

Copyright: ©1984
Condition: Very Good
Printing: 1st
ISBN: 0312944632

--Summary--
They said it couldn't be done! A science fiction show? On national television?? The network didn't believe it would work. It was the 1960s. Would the public accept a non-human hero with demonic pointed ears? A black woman lieutenant? Impossible!

But Star Trek lives!

This is the story of a phenomenon -- a story as strange and wonderful, in its way, as the Enterprise's trip through space. Even the power of the networks couldn't stop it. And so Star Trek went on to make entertainment history -- with Star Trek: The Motion Picture and The Wrath of Khan -- and now Star Trek III! Here is the complete inside story, as it has never before been told: the men and the women who created the Star Trek universe, from scriptwriters' memos to special effects, plus revealing personal interviews with the series' legendary stars.

The legend of Star Trek lives in the hearts of millions -- now, discover the truth behind the legend. Writer David Gerrold was on the set, watching it all happen: the feuds, the fun, the love -- the magic that is Star Trek. With over 50 pages of photos from your favorite episodes, and stills from all three movies!

Who's Who in Star Trek


Author(s): John Townsley

Book Series: Reference Manuals
Book Number:

Copyright: ©1984
Condition: Good
Printing: 1st
ISBN: B00072X8VY

--Summary--
To boldly go where no man has gone before...

Apart from the first two pilots, all 79 Star Trek episodes were filmed within three years, between 1966 and 1969 -- not a long production life for what would become the world's No 1 Science Fiction TV series. Now, almost 25 years after it all began, repeats of the TV series are still shown regularly all over the world and four full-length feature films have proved the timeless popularity of Captain Kirk, Mr Spock and the rest of the crew of the Enterprise.

Who's Who in Star Trek brings together for the first time everybody who contributed to this Science Fiction phenomenon, the actors, writers, producers and directors -- not to mention the special effects designers -- who made Star Trek the greatest cult TV series of all time.

Includes the stars of the new TV series Star Trek: The Next Generation

Star Trek: The Lost Years


Author(s): Edward Gross

Book Series: Reference Manuals
Book Number:

Copyright: ©1987
Condition: Very Good
Printing: 1st
ISBN: 1556981597

--Summary--
Star Trek has the largest fan following of any television show ever created. There are dozens of books covering every aspect of the history of the television series and the movies. Except for one time period - the lost years between the time the television series left the air and the day the first movie arrived in the theaters.

No book has ever detailed the incredible story of the second coming of Star Trek, the major attempt to revive the television series in the late '70s. Although new characters were created, an entire cast was signed, a creative crew was hired and scripts were written, not one episode was ever filmed. Just before shooting commenced, the decision was made to go with a feature film instead.

The story of this Star Trek that never was is one of creativity and backstabbing, heroism and tragedy…careful planning and last minute changes. The behind the scenes story was as exciting as any adventure ever filmed.

Author Edward Gross talked to all of the key players, from the story editor to the man that would have replaced Spock; he sorted through pules of production notes to learn the whole story. He presents the exciting events in a very readable fashion and includes an analysis of the scripts and outlines that would have sent the Starship Enterprise and her new crew on a whole new five year mission.

These are the adventures that could have happened if the feature films hadn't appeared instead. This is the lost chapter of Star Trek history, the complete tale of the lost years.

Notes: Looks to be similar, aside from the cover, to 'Trek: The Lost Years'

The History of Trek


Author(s): James Van Hise

Book Series: Reference Manuals
Book Number:

Copyright: ©1991
Condition: Good
Printing: 2nd
ISBN: 1556983093

--Summary--
A narrative history of a phenomenon.

Perhaps no television series in the nearly 50 year history of the medium has had as much written about it as Star Trek, but perhaps that is because there is so much to say. Even when the series was first airing in the Sixties, a book was already on the stands chronicling its behind-the-scenes creation. And after the show was cancelled in 1969, people continued to write about it, actually increasing interest in the series until it returned in the form of a $40 million feature film in 1979.

The History of Trek tells the incredible tale of a television series that limped through three seasons and changed the world. Now only are the origins of the original series revealed in interviews with cast and creative staff; not only is the fascinating story of the series that almost was told; not only does the book take the reader behind the scenes for six movies and an entire new series of Next Generation adventures…but the real life adventure is also uncovered. Astronauts and scientists were inspired by the amazing stories. Artists and writers turned to their crafts after watching the most inspirational adventure series in the history of television.

This is a unique book told by James Van Hise, perhaps the only writer who could have told it. Van Hise published his first magazine devoted to Star Trek over a decade ago and has continued his fascination, and his chronicling, of the series ever since. Now he creates his magnum opus, virtually a love letter to a most deserving show.

--Summary--

History of the Vessel Enterprise: From the 16th to the 24th Century


Author(s): Ronald M. Roden, Jr.

Book Series: Reference Manuals
Book Number:

Copyright: ©1992
Condition: Mint
Printing: 1st
ISBN: 0962943231

--Summary--
Enterprise, a prestigious name that evokes high adventure in the minds of most. There have been over 150 craft to carry this glorious name, and in this square bound volume you get the individual history of each one. From Schooners, Blimps, Space shuttles, Aircraft carriers and of course, the flagship of Starfleet in the 24th century, the amazing genesis of a legend is chronicled.

Years of painstaking research went into this fine comprehensive effort. The research included obscure U.S. and international documents. The histories of each vessel were gleaned from the actual ship logs (whenever possible).

All this makes the book an accurate accounting of all the various "Enterprises" voyages, armament, size, etc. Ships bearing this name have been instrumental in changing the course of history many times and now you have a chance to have it all archived and placed in your personal library.

This is truly a look at adventure on a grand scale.

Copyright: ©1992
Condition: Very Good
Printing: 1st
ISBN: 1556983212

--Summary--
From the publisher of The Trek Encyclopedia, Trek: The Lost Years, Trek: 25th Anniversary Celebration and Trek: The Next Generation comes the real story behind the popular syndicated television dramatic series the most import [sic] book ever written about The Next Generation

The secret story behind the creation of The Next Generation

Exclusive look at The Next Generation you never saw

Preview of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine

Created for syndication, Star Trek: The Next Generation was free of some of the network restrictions of the earlier show, yet problems abounded in the form of staff conflicts. In the show's early seasons, Roddenberry refused to compromise his vision and, in forcing others to change theirs, became estranged from writers (and longtime friends) David Gerrold and Dorothy Fontana, and even had disputes with the Writer's Guild of America over the show.

The series thrived despite the conflicts. This book reveals the hidden history of the series, from its earliest days, when old Star Trek alumni such as William Shatner and Leonard Nimoy questioned the wisdom of creating a different Star Trek, to the show's present success.

Plus The Next Generation scripts we never saw, the many story ideas submitted before the show finally took shape, which demonstrate both early approaches to the characters and directions never taken.

Star Trek and Star Trek: The Next Generation are two of the most popular television series in the history of the medium. One arose from the other, yet they are very different.

Conventions become lively with the heated disputes. Author James Van Hise presents the differences and similarities between the two shows and, in a balanced way, reveals the strengths and weaknesses of each.

Each series was created for a different time but with the same underlying spirit of cautious optimism and belief in humanity. The author, America's leading expert on Star Trek for over two decades is uniquely positioned to understand each series. He has repeatedly interviewed the actors and creators learning their approaches to their work. Trek Versus The Next Generation reveals the amazing insights he has discovered to millions of fascinated fans of both series.

Copyright: ©1994
Condition: Very Good
Printing: 1st
ISBN: 1556983387

A fascinating look at the future of Star Trek.

Seven years of Star Trek - The Next Generation and two years of Deep Space Nine built on what came before, and, set 75 years beyond the time of the original Star Trek series, added many changes.

New technology offers a new look and new capabilities. While space stations appeared on Star Trek before, none looked like Deep Space Nine. The future shared by The Next Generation and Deep Space Nine includes many new planets and cultures.

Is Deep Space Nine truly the successor of The Next Generation and Star Trek it was intended to be? What about Star Trek Voyager? And what will the future of The Next Generation be on the giant movie screen?

For the first time, this and other questions about the two Star Treks of the 24th Century will be answered in Trek In the 24th Century: The Next Generation and Deep Space. Plus an early look at the new Star Trek Voyager.

Dateline -- Paramount Pictures announces the formation of its own television network, saying that a new Star Trek program will be its cornerstone. The year is not 1994, but 1977, and the new Star Trek series titled Star Trek Phase II would have reunited almost all of The Original Series cast members.

Few people realize how close Star Trek Phase II, a footnote in Star Trek history, came to full-scale production. All of the actors were signed, except for Leonard Nimoy, whose Spock character would have been replaced by a young Vulcan named Xon. Sets and props were designed and constructed. New models, including a never seen version of the U.S.S. Enterprise, were built. A special effects company was hired, and scripts were written.

However, the plans for the network were canceled, and Paramount Pictures decided to shift gears to feature film production, shutting down the television series. The result of this decision was Star Trek: The Motion Picture.

Star Trek Phase II: The Lost Series is the story of the missing chapter in the Star Trek saga, including full behind-the-scenes information on the show that almost -- but didn't -- happen. full of never-before-seen color artwork, storyboards, blueprints, technical information and photos, this book reveals the vision behind Gene Roddenberry's lost glimpse of the future.

And for the first time anywhere, Star Trek Phase II: The Lost Series presents the never published series guidelines and the full script for the lost pilot of the series In Thy Image, written by producer Harold Livingston.

Book Series: Reference Manuals
Book Number:

Copyright: ©1997
Condition: Mint
Printing: 1st
ISBN: 0753501988

--Summary--
Shameless exploitation of a revered science fiction cash cow

It's here! The book that could have been thicker and more jam-packed with facts and exposes, but wasn't. However, its disappointing size conceals a bumper collection of facts, both trivial and pointless, about Star Trek in all its incarnations, but especially the animated one.

Within this uniquely portable volume you will find:

* The silliest items of merchandise
* The fattest members of Star Fleet
* Not much about Voyager really
* No distracting illustrations
and various other things!

All in all it's another stranger to broad-based appeal from the team that brought you Doctor Who - The Completely Useless Encyclopedia. See how the critics raved:

'Brilliantly amusing' - SFX

'An unqualified 10 out of 10' - Dreamwatch

'The single funniest book I've ever read' - Doctor Who Magazine

' I raised my eyes upwards, despairing that such inanities could ever reach print' - TV Zone

Author(s): Sam Ramer

Book Series: Reference Manuals
Book Number:

Copyright: ©1997
Condition: Mint
Printing: 1st
ISBN: 0806519193

--Summary--
When your significant other is happily sitting through the third Star Trek rerun of the evening, do you sometimes feel lost in space? Here, in a funny and easy-to-read format, is everything a Star Trek novice needs to know to keep up with a diehard Trekker. For instance, did you know that

- All life on Earth was "seeded" billions of years ago by an intelligent race of beings that looked like us but had no hair.

- Methuselah, Solomon, Lazarus, Alexander the Great, and Brahms were all the same person.

- Amelia Earhart disappeared when she was abducted by aliens and is now cryogenically frozen on a distant planet.

- The late-twentieth-century advances in personal computing were not supposed to happen. A computer nerd found a spacecraft from the twenty-ninth century and used it to invent advanced computer chips and make billions of dollars. (Sound familiar?)

You'll also find a concise history of the series and movies, a glossary of Trek terms, and quizzes to test your knowledge of the answers to burning questions such as, What the hell is "warp speed," anyway? Why do they all have weird foreheads? and Must we have a full-size poster of Worf in the bedroom?

Full of fun, but informative, too, this book will delight new fans, reluctant mates, and confirmed Trekkers alike.

The Star Trek Sketchbook: The Original Series


Author(s): Herbert F. Solow and Yvonne Fern Solow

Book Series: Reference Manuals
Book Number:

Copyright: ©1997
Condition: Mint
Printing: 1st
ISBN: 0671002198

--Summary--
Devise a look for the future. Construct strange new worlds. Create new life-forms. Design their clothes. Do it all in a week. And do it on budget. This was the mission for the creative staff of Star Trek. For three years just a handful of talented artists created the entire world of Star Trek.

The Star Trek Sketchbook is a unique opportunity to finally see the sketches collected from these artists, providing insight into their creative processes. The Original Series was fortunate enough to have that handful of designers who overcame the creative constraints of a weekly television series to forge a vision of the future that has become literally a cultural icon.

Matt Jefferies created meticulous sketches of every aspect of the Starship Enterprise and the worlds she visited. The energetic illustrations of William Theiss depicted some of the most lavish costumes ever worn in this or any other galaxy. Fred Phillips designed makeup that actualized whole new races, with just humans underneath. Wah Chang created props and hardware that are still the basis of futurist design.

For a writer, the sky is the limit. You can create anything, imagine anywhere. The designers on Star Trek had to make it real, affordable, and come back and do it all again next week. The Star Trek Sketchbook allows you onto the sound stages where it all happened.

Notes: None.

Star Trek: Action!


Author(s): Terry J. Erdmann

Book Series: Reference Manuals
Book Number:

Copyright: ©1998
Condition: Mint
Printing: 1st
ISBN: 0671025422

--Summary--
23,719.

That's how many minutes have been committed to film during the thirty-year -- and counting -- history of Star Trek. Since its inception as a groundbreaking show, through its current incarnations on television and as a series of motion pictures, more than 395 hours of Star Trek have been filmed. If you watch it all consecutively, you'd be glued to your television set around the clock for more than 16 days.

Have you ever wondered what it takes to create just one sequence of scenes that can last as little as a minute or two? Minutes may not seem like a lot out of thirty years' worth of science fiction magic, but for the thousands of men and women both in front of and behind the cameras, each and every one of those minutes has been a labor of love, blood, sweat, and tears, all created without a net.

With the author as our guide, we will follow the creation of three separate sequences -- one each from Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, Star Trek: Voyager, and the upcoming motion picture Star Trek: Insurrection. From the first meetings of the writers to the pre-production meetings, from the concept sketches to the realized set, from the early morning makeup session to the bleary-eyed midnight shooting the author has been there. Peering over the shoulders of the writers, the filmmakers, the graphic artists, and the visual-effects wizards, the author reports each Herculean task as it is accomplished. Action! takes you there for each moment.

After reading Action!, an utterly unique work, you will never watch Star Trek the same way again. (Oh, and in case you haven't timed this, it took you about two minutes to read this flap copy.

Condition: Mint
Printing: 1st
ISBN: 0671008927

--Summary--
Pass the torch. Bring together the best of what has come before and the grandeur of the present to create an undreamed-of future, a radically different look. Create a new ship. Give life to mankind's greatest nightmare, made flesh and metal.

When the decision was made to take the hugely successful television series Star Trek: The Next Generation into the realm of motion pictures, the crew, special-effects artists, and costume and makeup designers knew that they had a wondrous opportunity and several unique challenges ahead. Could they translate this new crew to the big screen, while retaining the magic that made the series one of the most successful syndicated shows ever? Could they create even more "strange new worlds" and vistas for them to explore, on a scale that would inspire awe in its legion of fans? And, most crucially, in its maiden voyage could they meld the two "generations" of Star Trek? Could they find a way, visually, to pass the baton from the Original Series to the crew of The Next Generation?

Star Trek: The Next Generation Sketchbook -- The Movies explores the hectic, frantic and creative works of the movie artists... first, as they valiantly endeavor to meet and overcome the challenges presented by Star Trek Generations, and then as they embark on the massive undertaking of The Next Generation crew's first solo flight, Star Trek: First Contact. The inception of the nexus, the destruction of a starship, the horrific face of the Borg, and the design of the U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701-E all began with a single creative spark.

John Eaves, just one of the hundreds of craftspeople who worked their movie magic on Generations and First Contact, joins writer J.M. Dillard to take us on an odyssey into the mind's eye of some of the most visionary artists in the world of motion pictures. Through hundreds of never-before-seen sketches, model photographs and fashion designs, you'll see where it all began, and learn firsthand what it takes to transform the unenvisioned world into glorious reality.

Condition: Mint
Printing: 1st
ISBN: 0671042998

--Summary--
Special bonus: a section that will show you how to re-create your own makeup as well as create your own props, using readily available items.

Words on paper. Without the resourceful, innovative, almost magical talents of the untold hundreds of behind-the-scenes people who have worked on Star Trek, those and countless other futuristic marvels would be just that -- words on paper. For years the major responsibility for making it all real for viewing audiences has fallen to people like Academy Award-winning makeup supervisor Michael Westmore and property master Alan Sims, and their incredible staff of artisans. These modern-day dream shapers have guarded their award-wining secrets with national security-level caution... until today.

The veil of secrecy is pulled back in Star Trek: Aliens & Artifacts. Through dozens of rare sketches, photographs, and designs, discover how those remarkable craftspeople made the fantastic vistas, creatures, and technology encountered every week. You'll be amazed at how low-tech some of these hi-tech wonders really are!

Who decided to make the Andorian blue? Of what was the belt on the original Klingon costume made? Was the first phaser really a block of wood? All your questions will be answered in Star Trek: Aliens & Artifacts

Star Trek: Reader's Reference Novels 1970-1979


Author(s): Alva Underwood

Book Series: Reference Manuals
Book Number:

Copyright: ©2001
Condition: Mint
Printing: 1st
ISBN: 075963596X

--Summary--
A fan of Star Trek since seeing her first episode "Devil in the Dark," Alva Underwood has provided a wealth of information about that world as offered in the first twelve novels that appeared between 1970 and 1979. She has brought together, as much as possible, far-flung information from a variety of sources, providing complete documentation of sources and bibliography. Offered here are biographies of Kirk, Spock, McCoy, Scotty, Uhura, Chekov, Sulu, Chapel and, of course, the Enterprise. Found within are tantalizing glimpses of the Romulans (originally Vulcan stock that chose to leave Vulcan), Klingons who hate and fear Kirk but find him utterly fascinating, and a greater variety of aliens than could be seen in the TV episodes. Did you know that Kirk enjoys romboid cakes served either with a dressing or jelly? Just how many Alices did Mudd create? That Kirk, Spock, and McCoy has had enough dalliances to have fathered a small town of offsprings? That quivas are cultivated on Vulcan? That NCC stands for Naval Construction Contract? This reference is a MUST for the serious reader of STAR TREK novels.

Notes: First of three editions.

Star Charts: The Complete Atlas of Star Trek


Author(s): Geoffrey Mandel

Book Series: Reference Manuals
Book Number:

Copyright: ©2002
Condition: Mint
Printing: 1st
ISBN: 0743437705

--Summary--
"... all I ask is a tall ship, and a star to steer her by."

From the earliest days of exploration, there has always been one tried-and-true way to navigate through uncharted reaches and one to find the way home -- the stars. Ancient mariners prized their star charts, knowing that they could guide them safely into a friendly port or lead them to the riches of the mysterious East. Modes of transportation have changed but the stars are still our constant. When man took his first step into space armed with the very latest in computers, he took with him the same tool for reading the stars that the men who sailed under canvas carried.

When humans launched the first ship designed for long-range missions into the deep waters of interstellar space, the Vulcan High Command provided their star charts for the Enterprise. But Jonathan Archer was not content with relying on the known. Although he used the Vulcan charts, he also added to them, and greatly expanded Starfleet's knowledge of the galaxy. Every generation of starship captain that followed has built on Archer's first steps.

Follow the course set by Archer, Kirk, Picard, Sisko, and Janeway. Relive their extraordinary adventures as you find here, for the first time, the star maps that chart the routes these famous explorers took.

Notes: Also includes a stellar primer! Planet-by-planet, star-by-star guide to every known system in the Star Trek universe!

Author(s): Alva Underwood

Book Series: Reference Manuals
Book Number:

Copyright: ©2002
Condition: Mint
Printing: 1st
ISBN: 1403324646

--Summary--
As a fan of Star Trek since having first seen the episode "Devil in the Dark," Alva Underwood enjoys reading and writing about the world of the twenty-third century. She provides in the second reference a wealth of information about that world glimpsed in the original seventy-nine episodes. This reference continues the task of providing a reference for the second set of novels: 1980-1983. Here is a more complete biography of Kirk, Spock, McCoy, Scotty, Uhura, Sulu, and Chekov and tantalizing bits of information about the many aliens, more than the TV series could offer. Did you know that a Rigellian Bloodworm comes in sizes ranging from 0.5 centimeters long to one that challenges a Terran adult python? Or that Spock was a pirate and that her served time at the Minos prison? That the crew is periodically subjected to a Sigmund? Do you know Kirk's favorite saying about being fooled? This second reference, a must have for the serious reader, continues the work begun in the first, and its intent is that it be a reference tool for the continued enjoyment of this fascinating world first conceived by Gene Roddenberry and so ably continued in the many novels.

Notes: Second of three editions.

The Literary Galaxy of Star Trek: An Analysis of References and Themes in the Television Series and Films


Author(s): James F. Broderick

Book Series: Reference Manuals
Book Number:

Copyright: ©2006
Condition: Mint
Printing: 1st
ISBN: 0786425717

--Summary--
How is the android Data like Shakespeare's character Hamlet? Is the vengeful Khan an echo of Captain Ahab in Moby Dick? The links between Star Trek and literature are many. Themes and characters reflect those in classic literature and characters quote literature in their dialogue. Furthermore, like literature, Star Trek seeks to help humans understand the world and its place in the universe. This book explores all of those connections.

From Captain Kirk's first appearance in the original series, through the four subsequent series and ten movies, this book draws parallels between Star Trek stories and literary classics such as Hamlet, Paradise Lost, Ulysses, Dracula, and the New Testament, and works by the likes of Booker T. Washington, Edgar Allan Poe and Shakespeare. Appendices list the literary works discussed and the episodes and movies mentioned, each giving the chapters where references can be found.
