This is an absolutely superb book, and along with the accompanying volume one they are without a doubt the most comprehensive records of the production of the original series to date. The level of detail is truly outstanding, and despite having collected many books on the subject over the years I was struck by just how much new information there was; hardly a page went by without some new gem.

Its a weighty book of just over seven hundred pages and it is paperback.

All the photos are black and white, but as with the text there are some really good shots, many available for the first time in this publication.

When volume three is released this set will surely represent the most complete archive on the original Star Trek series, and at over two thousand pages it will take some beating!

Volume 2 of the best trilogy of books that will ever be written about the original Star Trek series.

Exhaustingly detailed and accurate, this is a definite five star purchase.

Definitive and superb, very highly recommended.

Lots of detail about each episode , how the script develops from an idea to a script and was then modified. Day by day records of the filming of each episode with context at the time.Details of what alternative endings or dialogue were considered but finally rejected. Information about the stunts. Some really good quality pictures.
This was as good as I could have possibly imagined a book on Star Trek could be.

As with volume one, there is much to like here and even though I'm not a particularly strong Star Trek fan, I deeply enjoyed how this conveyed the roller coaster of television production and the stresses it brings. However, I bought this primarily because volume one ended with these words:

"One must wonder why a network would consider cancelling a Top 40 series (which was Top 10 with teens), that was almost always a solid second place entry in the ratings for its timeslot, and which often hit the No. 1 spot. The answers... follow in the second volume of These Are the Voyages."

No, they don't. There's a lot more about its ratings being better than has generally been known, there is a bit more about showrunner Gene Roddenberry's disagreements with the network but no, there are no answers. There is just this, right at the end:

"The fans, jubilant over the news that there would be a third season, didn't know it yet but decisions at NBC and Paramount, and subsequent reactive decisions by Gene Roddenberry, had pre-destined the third season of their favourite series to be the last."

I don't mind a book trying to get you to read its sequel but this one's a cheat. I think if you like Star Trek enough, these three volumes are a must-buy so didn't really need the trickery to sell to that audience and it just annoys readers like myself who are more interested in US TV production than we are in the Enterprise. It's annoying enough that I'm two volumes in yet don't expect I'll be buying the third.

As good as the first volume. You really feel like you are there watching as the shows are developed and filmed. I thought I knew everything about Star Trek. I was wrong. Can't wait for Season 3!
