As Star Trek: The Next Generation has been the subject of many, many reference books and articles over the years, including the Star Trek: The Next Generation Companion and Star Trek, the Next Generation: The Continuing Mission A Tenth Anniversary Tribute, this work easily could have become a retread of earlier publications. However, it manages to include quite a bit of information not commonly known and many stories previously untold. Paula Block worked in licensing at Paramount during TNG's production, thus had an abundance of material and personal experiences to draw upon in order to give a unique take on the TNG phenomenon.

Rather than serve as a straight-up episode guide, it offers small vignettes about TNG (365 of them, hence the book's title), in chronological order ranging from pre-production of the series through "All Good Things..." and focusing on a variety of topics including cast, characters, production staff, costumes, props, merchandise, special effects, and more. For instance, the episode "Manhunt" is covered using an interview with the makeup artist responsible for transforming Mick Fleetwood into an Antedean. An entry connected to "A Matter Of Time" gives background info on Picard's ready room fish, Livingston. Another gives the story behind the construction of the Enterprise float featured in the 1992 Tournament of Roses parade.

I first heard about Star Trek: The Next Generation: 365 at the beginning of this year. From the first blurb I read online I knew I would buy this book. After all, I have been buying "glossy" Star Trek books for nearly twenty years so I pre-ordered on Amazon and began the long wait for the Autumn release.

In the months that followed, I saw the pages and teaser photos as they were released to the general public. These tiny glimpses only increased my excitement. One of the authors, Terry Erdman, also penned one of my favorite books Star Trek: Action! that had a tremendous effect on the direction I would take in my professional life.

The book arrived early and I have had it in my hands for several hours. I thumbed through it, page by page and read articles attached to pictures I have never seen. The book takes the form of a chronology in images of the run of The Next Generation. Some of the photos have been published many times over the years in books, magazines and on the Internet but there are a precious few that I had never seen and I dare say you haven't either.

There are little factoids, snippets of scripts and behind-the-scenes moments that make even this seasoned fan of the series grin with glee. The "never before seen" photos are a rare insight of both cast, crew and visitors to the set. I particularly enjoyed a glimpse into the offices of the writers and producers. Without giving away any of the good stuff: If I may be so bold, you're in for a treat. 365 is quite a book.

It is a small shame that the publishers didn't delay its production until all of TNG is released on Blu-Ray. There are "screen shots" that are particularly low-res and with my background in printing they stand out to me like a guest star using a Tricorder backwards.

I have purchased several of Paula Block's and Terry Erdmann's books about Star Trek (TOS 365, DS9 Companion and ST: Action!) and every one of them has been outstanding. The Star Trek The Next Generation 365 is no exception. It has outstanding graphics and wonderful behind-the-scenes stories for anyone interested in learning more about the STTNG series.

For anyone who is a big Star Trek fan, recent years have seen a long dry spell of anything good from a Star Trek reference books standpoint. Believe me this books is like a long cool drink of water after the drought. I will definitely be using the excellent index to locate specific references and facts.

This is a fitting 25th year anniversary tribute to an excellent scifi series which has become a major part of one of the most major franchises of scifi history. Highly recommended!

After going through this book, I realized that a lot of the problems I had with TOS 365 (my review of that is currently on page 4) were either fixed or didn't seem to be as much of an issue. Personally, I found TNG 365 to be more consistent and a more fitting companion to its series.

On the plus side, most of the content in the book is excellent! There is a lot of insight as to the writers' process, how budgets were always a concern and what went into the development of the series in general and certain episodes in particular ("Darmok" was conceived as a kid drawing shapes in the sand?!). The information is presented frankly, going over what worked (mostly seasons 3-6) and what didn't (1, 2 and especially 7) and pointing out certain episodes where aspects of character development or technology finally came together. I do think they went too easy on shows like "Sub Rosa" and "Genesis" and not hard enough on "Conspiracy" or "Night Terrors" (green flying Troi!) or a lot of Brannon Braga's dark shows, and could have written more on certain shows than they did (why is "Birthright" a two parter when Data's dreaming isn't even mentioned in part 2?). Having said that, it's a great read and even this long-time fan learned a lot.

On the negative side, many of the images are low-res screenshots taken straight from the DVDs and blown up. It seems to me they could have substituted more behind the scenes shots or sketches for those, or made a collage of smaller, better quality images rather than one big ugly one. Also, I believe the episodes are listed in production order, so "Family" is presented as the third episode of the fourth season rather than right after "The Best of Both Worlds, Part 2." The authors do make note of this, but it's still likely to confuse newer fans.
