If you are looking for a book about the original Sixties series of Star Trek, then go no further - because Star Trek: The Original Series 365 is the book to have. You will have, with my apologies, no tribble at all in thoroughly enjoying this volume. The hardback edition of the book itself is physically rather weighty*, and contains 371 pages, half of which are comprised of an intelligently chosen and presented, amusing and entertaining assortment of diagrams, illustrations, stock footage and photographs - some of which have seldom been published elsewhere. Where else for example, would you find an image of George Kirk's son in a replica Starfleet Captains uniform, sitting in the Big Chair with his uncle, James Kirk looking on?
The other half of the book is comprised of an entertaining and insightful episode by episode guide to the original series, intermixed with production and pre-production technical facts, behind the scenes snippets and clearly presented commentaries about the series original actors, locations, sets, design considerations and plot points and a concise index. More than just yet another episode guide - the book is a powerhouse of information and I well recommend it.
