Ten For Ward: 10 Favorite Star Trek "Behind the Scenes" Books
Maybe we can work on that a bit here. There are also a commensurate number of Trek comic books out there. All of this stuff has been published in near-continuous fashion since TOS was still in production back in the late s. Many a dedicated fan count novels and comics among their all-time favorite Trek stories, listing them in equal measure alongside films and TV episodes. Just for fun, I conducted an informal survey on my Facebook page, asking readers which Trek novels they thought made tasty film fodder.
I have a confession to make. I am a hard core, died in the wool, unapologetic Trekkie. This year is the 50th anniversary of the series, which aired for the first time on September 8, , so there are a LOT of people who can probably say they also grew up with it. I grew up watching episodes of The Original Series in syndication. I was nine when The Next Generation began, and I never missed a single episode. To this day, I can tell you what season an episode is from based just on the style of the uniform Captain Picard is wearing. I even have a sizable amount of memory devoted to being able to tell which episode is playing, complete with episode title and full plot synopsis, based on a five second clip.
This, despite my utter lack of desire to actually be involved in that process. In particular, I enjoy reading or learning about story and script development, and how artists and designers come together to create the look of a movie or TV series. Naturally, this curiosity extends to Star Trek.
