    Star Trek The Original Series lasted just three seasonsEven the fate of the third season appeared uncertain until fans clamoured for its continuationAfter thatit disappeared from the screenA long time latercame a deluge of spin off series and movies plus innumerable booksNowit's a case of too much of a good thingBut I read this when there was little availability of anything to do with the iconic seriesIt did surprise meafter reading this book how meager the resources at the disposal of the producers of the original series wereThat shoestring budget certainly detracted from the uality of the original showThe later series did not face such problemsI'm not a trekkie but this book would be a trekkie's delight with all the technical details it goes intoI skimmed through the book but it did contain some interesting anecdotes and tidbits about the showWilliam Shatner's Star Trek Memories is a much interesing bookhowever

    This book is hard to find as it's no longer in circulation so you have to pick it up used on eBay or but if you can find it I would highly suggest reading it if you're a big fan of the franchise The book was written while the show was still being made so you get a real eyewitness perspective as Whitfield walks you through the planning and production stages of the show Whitfield also offers a lot of casual anecdotal stories that adds a casual and playful nature to his book with his stories of wasp infestations salt shakers and on set pranks One caveat of course is that as the book was written in the sixties you should also be mindful that it was also product of its time and uses some rather outdated language such as using men to describe the TV crew despite that women were also a big part of the show such as DC Fontana

    This is probably one of the most influential books on the television industry in my life Very interesting glimpse into the creation of a little space cowboy and western show that over time became the cornerstone of a media empire The internal memos and stories are both funny and instructive as the show was developed and launched from the initial concept all the way through the end of the second season I consider it a must read for both fans of the show and anyone wanting to understand what it takes to put a television production together

    For many years I have heard artists I admire say that this was the book that made them realize they could work in TV or that this book inspired them to do so I finally tracked down a copy and I enjoyed itThis was originally published in 1968 as Star Trek was heading into its third and final season Whitfield gained unprecedented access to the set and the crew The book is filled with great informal uotations from Gene Roddenberry It's also filled with wonderful exchanges of memos between Roddenberry Bob Justman and othersI really enjoy some of the rare photos designs and diagrams that are included There are reproductions of call sheets casting notes etc which give you a real sense of what it must have been like working in the production office You get a very informal uncensored look at the show's staff Unfortunately this includes rampant 1960s sexismThese days this kind of book is much common but in 1968 I can well imagine it being an incredible eye opener for fans of the show and those interested in TV production

    For any fan of The Original Series or even Star Trek franchise in general this is a fun read This is a behind the scenes book on TOS written during the third series so everything is fresh I loved reading the story treatment of the first pilot The CageThe Menagerie I loved the art of the bridge labeling stations that I never knew their purpose It's interested to learn the names and personalities of all the behind the scenes personnel from directors and producers and I think the only drawback is that there are some gloss overs and I don't know if I can blame the author George Takei moved to Arkansas as a child not explaining WHYor how Majel Barrett just happens to get cast by Gene all the time strange that But I did enjoy revisiting TOS during its actual time before the cancellation and syndication and etc etc I'm amused that Gene gets a co author credit which ya know typical Gene All that said uite enjoyable for new and old TOS fans alike
