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).Read more ›
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.
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.

A fun look in pictures and story of the first 30 years of Star Trek. The only issue is that it needs to be updated with everything since 1994.Published 13 months ago by Robert Sparrenberger
