I know everyone loves Battlestar Galactica, which I'm sure is a fine show, but how could you not love a show where a key character says "I'm no-one's puppet." Except he is.

This is a great companion piece to the first season of FS, which was obviously written shortly after the season ended.

- There are 3-page synopses of the episodes, with a short recap and some production background.
- There is a brief overview of the main characters, and shorter snippets on the recurring characters. This includes how most were casted (or operated/voiced)
- There is a section on the effects and the efforts/new developments the Jim Henson's Creature Shop put into the show.

This book covers the first season of the series. It starts out with a foreword and then has a brief section on the history of the show's development. Then it has a section on each episode, with a recap of what happened, various photos, a cast listing, who wrote it and who directed it, and a quote from Chichton. All but the first episode also have a small section which talks about the creatures they encounter during that episode.

The next part of the book has information about the various characte
not sure if this is a true tertiary or merely marketing material (which would be a quarternary, no?).
