About the Author

Marc Cushman is a WGA screenwriter, a television and film director/producer and an author. Gene Roddenberry took the pitch from Marc for "Sarek," the first episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation to feature a character from TOS thereby linking the two series together. Other TV assignments include scripts for Beyond Belief: Fact or Fiction and Diagnosis: Murder, as well as feature films such as In the Eyes of a Killer and the award winning Desperately Seeking Paul McCartney. Marc co-authored the book I Spy: A History and Episode Guide to the Groundbreaking Television Series.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Although there have been a number of behind-the-scenes Star Trek books published before (most notably Stephen Whitfield's Making of "Star Trek" and Robert Justman's and Herbert Solow's Inside "Star Trek") These Are The Voyages, TOS, Season 1 is by far the most comprehensive book yet published and has a level of detail and insight that means even the most hardened fan will find something new to discover.

In 1982 Marc Cushman interviewed Gene Roddenberry for a TV special about Star Trek. At one point Roddenberry indicated 70 boxes of Star Trek production notes, memos, letters, budgets and scripts. Roddenberry told him that there was a book to be written from this treasure trove of material, but also said "You couldn't get that into a book, and I dare you to try."

Fast-forward several decades and Cushman has finally taken Roddenberry up on his suggestion. Having both the time and making the effort to methodically go through and study the thousands of documents from the 70 boxes of production materials (eventually donated to the UCLA) is what sets this book apart.

In order to be able to present such a detailed history we are lucky that Star Trek's key players, such as Gene Roddenberry and Bob Justman wrote so many memos - this wasn't common amongst television professionals at the time, but the fact they did means that many little nuggets of information have been saved, otherwise these insights would have been lost to the ravages of time. Justman's memos are a special delight - being both witty and incisive.

I have been a fan of the original series since the BBC first started showing it here in1969. Over the years I have bought many books on the subject , as a result I like to think I know a fare amount about the shows production history. However there were many new previously unpublished facts within the pages of this book. The many years the author has spent doing his research have certainly paid off. There are photos through out, black and white unfortunately, but that is for technical reasons.This is only volume one of three, I eagerly await the publication of the other two later this year.

Massively comprehensive and full of information that has not previously seen the light of day...if you thought you knew the "truth" about Star Trek's ratings or the real reasons for NBC's "problems" with the show, expect to be illuminated and surprised. A marvellous, marvellous piece of work, and really very much about time that Star Trek got this kind of in-depth treatment. Bravo, Mr. Cushman!!!
