Episode synopsis is kept to a minimal paragraph and to be fair I usually skip this unless I can't recall anything about the story. There are other books which are better designed for this. In essence this is a book about memories, tit-bits and anecdotes. Reading through it the stories are great and varied, talking about the differences in writing technology (typewriters to 90s computers in the first few seasons), what we would now conceive as basic special effects that were created on a shoestrong on some occasions and the first delves into CGI in 1991, six hour makeup jobs (Identity Crisis). One piece that sticks in my mind is the story of the guy who built the wooden horseshoe bridge rail/tactical console - you get the picture I'm sure that there is a lot to take in!
I thought I knew a lot about TNG with a fairly extensive library of resource including Action!, the Continuing Mission, the Companion et al but this has reignited an interest that takes me back to childhood and awaiting 6pm on BBC2 on a Wednesday night. I would say this is a must. Yes, there are some grainy frame-grabs as you go along but the series was filmed on videotape and if you're desperate to get a better quality image, buy the series on Blu-ray. This is about television history and What It Was Like Back Then.Read more ›
( I do hope there are books planned for Deep Space Nine, Voyager and Enterprise to complete the set ! )
I cannot think of any spin-off series which was and is as popular as the original program/form. 'The Next Generation' is a really rare and special exception to this rule. In the reality of life the cast who played these very nearly iconic characters, 'Picard', 'Data', 'Riker', 'Deanna', 'Geordi', 'Beverly', 'Wesley', 'Worf' et al all still love each other and do apparently meet up from time-to-time twenty five years after the series (10 years after their last 'TNG' film). It's a really delightful story how these guys have remained friends all these years.
The is introduced by Ronald D. Moore and he likely owes much to TNG for kickstarting his career as a writer. He seems like genuine and pleasant person whom is talented at what he does.
I am really enjoying this book - it's an absolute 'must-read' for any fan of the show.
