For the Star Trek Fan,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Star Trek: The Complete Unauthorized History (Hardcover)
I knew that this book was coming for a long time and could hardly wait for it to come out. And my wait was quite worth it. Star Trek: The Complete Unauthorized History was fascinating (pun not intended) for the average Trek fan like me. While I had already heard some of the stories, there were plenty more that I had never heard, and confirmed what I had suspected: Mr. Roddenberry was a man with a great idea, but he also had his down side and was hard to deal with, especially if your idea ran counter to his.
And I loved the pictures -- I had never dreamed that there were so many different toys and other collectables. I wished I had collected some of those when I was a kid.
Recommended for the Trek fans and anyone who wants to know about show business and the story of a franchise.
