Format: Hardcover
Over the years, many books have been written about Star Trek's growth from a popular-yet-low-rated television series to the huge cultural phenomenon it is today. Some are strictly technical (Gene Roddenberry and Stephen Whitfield's The Making of Star Trek), others are a mix of in-depth analysis and insider's insights (David Gerrold's The World of Star Trek), while still others are personal memoirs (William Shatner's Star Trek Memories). Most of them describe the growing pains of Roddenberry's concept of "Wagon Train to the Stars" and tell the now-familiar story of how NBC commissioned two pilots (rejecting "The Cage" for being too cerebral); how the fans saved the show for a second season but couldn't stop NBC from cancelling Star Trek in 1969; how those same fans kept the spirit of Star Trek alive during the "in-between" decade from the show's debut in syndication to the release of 1979's Star Trek: The Motion Picture.
J.M. Dillard, author of many Star Trek novels (The Lost Years, Mindshadow, plus five movie novelizations), contributed the text for Star Trek: Where No One Has Gone Before -- A History in Pictures. Published shortly after Star Trek: The Next Generation ended its seven season run and before both the premiere of the seventh feature film and the debut of Star Trek's third spin-off, Voyager, Where No One Has Gone Before covers Star Trek's first 28 years, from its creative genesis as the proposed chronicles of Starfleet Capt. Robert April and the Starship Yorktown to the pre-production of Star Trek: Voyager (which ended its run in 2001).

Format: Hardcover
It took Leonard Nimoy almost three decades to finally admit that he was Spock. It hasn't quite taken me that long to admit to being a "Trekker". The fear of being labeled a "geek" or a "nerd" was so overwhelming that I would shun any mention of the show outside of my circle of fellow Trek fans.
Well, I have come out of the Star Trek "closet", proudly announcing my enjoyment of all things Trek, past and present. This book is a treasure for those of us that have followed the original series as well as the subsequent spin-offs as of the book's publication.
Insightful background on the various shows along with great photographic stills and illustrations makes this a "must-have" for the devoted follower.
It's definitely for those of us grateful for the "journey" of which Gene Roddenberry initiated back in the mid-sixties.
It's also a good primer for those that don't quite understand what all the fuss was about.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The paperback and hardcover versions of this book are slightly different, since the hardcover was published at a time when Voyager was still in conceptual development. Accordingly, some of the later developments in DS9 are missing from the hardcover, and the Voyager section is very sketchy, while the paperback has much more complete coverage of DS9 (such as the inclusion of the Defiant) and the Voyager section now includes photos and information about the cast and episodes.

Both books are worthwhile visual records of the Star Trek television shows (TOS to Voyager) and movies. Later shows (i.e., "Enterprise") and movies are missing, since they occurred after publication. The text contains the occasional nugget of interesting trivia or perspective, but doesn't go into a lot of depth. As a coffee table book, that's pretty much to be expected. Some of the photos are quite good, and there were several I'd never seen before, but many of them were, unfortunately, a bit mundane.

Overall, I'd say this is a good book for someone who's really into Star Trek to leaf through or leave out on coffee table, but there are better books when it comes to telling the Star Trek story.
