Star Trek writers here remember the show and its influences on our society and lives.

D.C. Fontana profiles Gene Roddenberry and the action on the Star Trek sets.

Robert Metzger somehow proves that Scotty's ability to lie makes him the most valuable crew member aboard the Enterprise!

"So does Star Trek have anything relevant left to say about today's world? Yes, and here it is: Here's how we are today (booo) ... and here's who we might someday be (yaaay!)."

Beam me up now and tomorrow forever!
This was a fun and interesting read. Some essays I enjoyed more than others, but it was well worth the whole buck-ninety-nine I spent on it! Having grown up in the 60s and 70s, it was fun to look back on that period.
This is a great collection of stories, essays and personal accounts that any Trekkie will enjoy.
I love Star Trek. Some interesting theories here. Worth reading!
Some interesting essays for Trekkies and cultural critics.
