Description

"Space... the final frontier. These are the voyages of the starship Enterprise. Its five-year mission: to explore strange new worlds, to seek out new life and new civilizations -- to boldly go where no man has gone before..."

On September 8, 1966, those now-familiar words first introduced an entire generation of television viewers to Star Trek. Over the course of its three-year network run, the show developed a fan following unprecedented in entertainment history -- a following that is still growing with the release of each new Star Trek motion picture.

Much of the show's appeal came from its blueprint for the future -- a future where man had put aside his differences to reach the stars. Star Trek gave us a Russian and an American working side-by-side, television's first interracial kiss, the name for America's first space shuttle -- Enterprise -- and a host of unforgettable characters: the unflappable Captain Kirk, his half-human science officer Spock, the irascible Dr. Leonard "Bones" McCoy, and ever-resourceful engineer Montgomery Scott, to name but a few.

The Star Trek Compendium is your official guidebook to the Star Trek universe. Relive the voyages of the starship Enterprise with a complete show-by-show guide to the series (as well as the Emmy Award-winning animated shows and the Star Trek movies), including plot summaries, fascinating behind-the-scenes production information, and credits for each. Follow the creation of Gene Roddenberry's series step-by-step -- and Star Trek's road to the big screen. Illustrated with over 125 specially selected photographs -- including at least one from each episode -- and fully indexed, this is the indispensable reference work to one of the most memorable television shows of all time -- Star Trek.
