This is the true story behind the making of a television legend. There have been many books written about Star Trek , but never with the unprecedented access, insight and candor of authors Mark A. Altman and Edward Gross. Having covered the franchise for over three decades, they've assembled the ultimate guide to a television classic.

The Fifty-Year Mission: Volume Two is an incisive, no-holds-barred oral history telling the story of post-Original Series Star Trek , told exclusively by the people who were there, in their own words--sharing the inside scoop they've never told before--unveiling the oftentimes shocking true story of the history of Star Trek and chronicling the trials, tribulations--and tribbles--that have remained deeply buried secrets... until now.

The Fifty-Year Mission: Volume Two includes the voices of hundreds television and film executives, programmers, writers, creators, and cast, who span from the beloved The Next Generation and subsequent films through its spin-offs: Deep Space Nine, Voyager, and Enterprise, as well J.J. Abrams' reimagined film series.

This book (and volume one as well) will be enjoyed and appreciated by true fans of Star Trek, as well as anyone who wants to know how a television series is conceived and executed. There are plenty of fascinating nuggets of information (such as why Whoopi Goldberg desperately wanted a part on Next Generation, and Stephen Hawking's appearance on the show). Both volumes of this book are very long and include discussions of in-fighting and disagreements about many issues; some of that could have been cut. But if you love Star Trek, this two-volume series is enjoyable and informative (and often mesmerizing).
