Calling all Trekkies! If you are a Star Trek enthusiast like myself your bookshelf is mostly likely overcrowded with so much Sci-fi memorabilia, which is probably mostly Star Trek. So, please let me be your enabler in this department if only to add just one more book to your collection. Trust me this one is worth picking up and working into your budget. Star Trek: Epic Episodes takes you back to revisit the twelve most epic episodes of this momentous and trailblazing television show. This book doesn’t just visit some of the most landmark episodes. It also provides key interviews with members of the cast as well as key producers.

I have to admit that Star Trek: Epic Episodes had me in a place of nostalgia. It brought me back to that spark which was generated when I first saw the series.  I couldn’t keep myself from smiling as I read each page and revisited the memoirs of each episode with the cast. For example, who wouldn’t enjoy the wonderful interaction between William Shatner and Leonard Nimoy? This will surely melt your heart. There are even stories which include details of how this series and some of our key characters almost didn’t come to be.

Within these pages, you will find so many wonderful treasures as well as new information about this franchise. For example, Star Trek: Epic Episodes shows how the little series that could, not only paved the way for the development and growth of the Sci-fi genre as we know it but elevated the standard of our television standard. You will also find a special tribute to Star Trek screenwriter Gene L. Coon, as well as a wonderful comparison of Captain Kirk and Captain Picard.

I have to personally to say as a Trekkie, I would recommend this book as one to add to your collection.
