Format: Mass Market Paperback
Originally published in 1975, "Star Trek Lives!" is a significant historical document of the world of "Star Trek" fandom. Co-authors Jacqueline Lichtenberg, Sondra Marshak, and Joan Winston all demonstrate a palpable affection for "Star Trek," the classic science fiction television series of the late 1960s. This book is both an analysis and account of some of the currents in "Trek" fandom up to the mid-70s.
Although some of the pop psychoanalysis strikes me as a little overdone, the book is, in general, a serious and intelligent account of "Star Trek" and its fans. The authors analyze various elements of the show, and discuss such fan activities as the legendary "Star Trek" conventions. Interspersed throughout the book are fascinating snippets of interviews with some of the creative people behind the series itself: producer Gene Roddenberry (who also contributes a foreword to the book), writer Dorothy Fontana, actor Leonard Nimoy, and others.
I found the most fascinating part of the book to be the overview of the fiction written and distributed by the fans themselves. Long before Captain Janeway took command of the Federation starship "Voyager," "Trek" fans were writing tales about such female Starfleet captains as Morrow Akal Damion and T'Pelle of Vulcan. A number of writers explored the unknown pre-history of Spock's interspecies parents, Sarek and Amanda. And Jacqueline Lichtenberg's own "Kraith" series became its own sub-genre of "Trek" fan fiction, with more than 40 other writers contributing stories! The authors include short excerpts from many of the various fan creations.

Format: Paperback
I was a second-generation STAR TREK fan - too young when the show first aired to watch it (I was born in 1963, just three years before its premiere on NBC), but glued to my set watching its 79 precious episodes in syndication on weekday and Saturday afternoons as a teenager growing up in southwest Louisiana in the 1970s. I had no idea there were others in the world who found this strange, canceled show so riveting...until I came across this book in a supermarket swivel-rack of paperbacks in my home town of Lafayette.

Through it, I discovered not only the world of "Trekkies" and "Trekkers" (I always favored the latter, myself...or just skirted the issue and called myself a Star Trek fan), but the far larger universe of science-fiction and fantasy fandom, where I made so many of the friendships I've been lucky enough to enjoy over the more than three decades since, not to mention most of my romantic partners - including the remarkable woman who is now my wife. And I owe it all to this book and its authors: Jackie, Sondra and (God rest her) the late Joan Winston, whose account of helping put on the very first Star Trek convention in New York, NY (and sneaking Leonard Nimoy in via a stairwell for a surprise guest appearance!) is part of this book.

I got to meet Ms. Lichtenberg at long, long last a few years ago at a Worldcon (the annual World Science Fiction Convention), where I brought my lovingly worn, bestickered, dog-eared first-printing copy for her to autograph and told her all this. She gasped and said, "Oh my God, look what he's got...Have you any idea how much this is worth?!

I bought this book when in high school. My sister, who is one year older than me, put it where there was no climate control. It stuck to the book of another ST book. I was mad but am glad to say it is replaced now. Got to me in great condition.
