"Space, the final frontier. These are the voyages of the Starship Enterprise

Her five-year mission: To explore strange, new worlds; To seek out new life and new civilizations; To boldly go where no man has gone before..."

These words, first spoken on television on September 8, 1966, gave the world its first glimpse of Gene Roddenberry's vision of the future. Since that day nearly thirty years ago, Star Trek has become the most incredible collaborative effort ever seen in motion pictures, television, and publishing -- a phenomenon that has inspired seven movies, four television series, and a line of bestselling books. Star Trek's popularity is astounding; nearly fifty percent of the American public identify themselves as Star Trek fans.

To celebrate Star Trek's heroic future vision for humanity, Pocket Books is pleased to present the updated, full-color, illustrated history of the Star Trek phenomenon: "Where No One Has Gone Before; A History in Pictures". From the genesis of The Original Series to the short-lived animated series, to the aborted second television series in the late 1970s, to Star Trek's resurgence in the movies and an incredible three more hit television shows, this is the complete Star Trek story -- an epic tale that now spans thirty years.

With more than thirty pages of new material, "Where No One Has Gone Before" is the ultimate collector's edition and features personal accounts, anecdotes, and full-color photographs from the actors, fans, and backstage professionals who helped make the show so incredibly popular.

The entertaining and informative text provides a behind-the-scenes glimpse of the world of Star Trek and includes essays by the master of science fiction and science fact, the late Dr. Isaac Asimov. The photo selection is the result of an exhaustive, national search for the best in Star Trek photography.

"Where No One Has Gone Before" is a book for all Star Trek fans, from the most loyal enthusiast to the causal viewer -- anyone who has marveled at adventures that continue to transport us all to the final frontier.

User Review  - Paul Warner - Goodreads

Excellent behind-the-scenes look for Trek fans at the original Star Trek series, animated series, films, and the Next Generation series. Only a limited amount of info about Deep Space Nine and Voyager though, for they were still being made at the time of this book. Read full review
