Before the actors were cast, before the U.S.S. Enterprise was designed, before the phenomenon exploded, there were three men who set about creating the Star Trek legend. Gene Roddenberry died in 1991. Herb Solow and Bob Justman now remain the only two people on the planet Earth who really know what happened in those early, heady days.
Inside Star Trek is a comprehensive look at the development and life of a television and cultural phenomenon. It is also a story no one else could tell. Between them, Solow and Justman had a hand in virtually every aspect of the development and production of Star Trek - from the battles with NBC and the internal conflicts with studio executives to the behind-the-scenes decisions about actors and their characters, writers, scripts, directors, budgets, and the endless details of weekly television production.
Together, in this book, the two men debunk many of the myths that have developed around Star Trek in the last thirty years as they create new ones based on facts. At last, here is the simple, fascinating and accurate account of a unique television series launched against astronomical odds - a television series that transported millions of viewers into another world and into a unprecedented, thirty-year, multimedia, multibillion-dollar cultural phenomenon.
