No book has ever detailed the incredible story of the second coming of Star Trek, the major attempt to revive television series in the late 1970's. Although new characters were created, an entire cast was signed, a creative crew was hired and scripts were written, not one episode was ever filmed. Just before shooting commenced, the decision was made to go with a feature film
The story of this Star Trek that never was is one of the creativity and backstabbing, heroism and tragedy...careful planning and last minute changes. The behind the scenes story was as exciting as any adventure film.
Author Edward Gross talked to all the key players, from the story editor to the man that would replace Spock; he sorted through piles of production notes to learn the who;e story . He presents the exciting events in very readable fashion and includes an analysis of the scripts and the outlines that would have sent the Starship Enterprise and her crew on a whole new five year mission
These are the adventures that could have happened if the feature film hadn't appeared instead. This is the lost chapter of the Star Trek history, the complete tale of the lost years
