Editorial Reviews

Review

“Breathtaking in scope and depth, this is a must-read for Star Trek lovers as well as anyone who wants a better understanding of how television and film production works.” ―Booklist, starred review

“An absolute must for any Star Trek fan.” ―Kirkus Reviews

“As a lifelong fan, I thought I knew everything there was to know about Star Trek. Thankfully, I was wrong. Thanks to revealing, honest and ― dare I say it? ― fascinating interviews from the insiders who were really there, The Fifty-Year Mission is an epic tome that's full of so much fantastic information, I felt like I was discovering the incredible behind-the-scenes story of Star Trek (and Hollywood, for that matter) all over again. It's a page-turner in every sense of the word, and I could not put it down.” ―Scott Mantz, Access Hollywood

5.0 out of 5 stars To coin a phrase : Fascinating
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on January 12, 2019
An unexpected and interesting format than your usual Trek book. Five hundred pages of text, no pictures.
The authors tell the STOS story by a judicious choice of quotes (mostly a couple lines to a paragraph or two) from the actors, writers, directors, producers etc. This seemly unstructured format builds into an in-depth and fascinating history of the making and makers of Star Trek.
Being mainly a fan of the original I hadn't planned on buying the 2nd volume on the next 25 years STNG and onwards, but I'm so impressed by this volume I think I will.
A must for the dedicated Trekkie or Trekker..
