About the Book

Released in 1996, this straight-to-video effort focuses almost entirely on the classic Star Trek series, as told by the principal actors of Star Trek: Leonard Nimoy, DeForest Kelley, James Doohan, Nichelle Nichols, George Takei, and Walter Koenig. Shatner, of course, gets center stage, telling anecdotes about the way each of the roles was cast and why each actor was uniquely suited for his or her role. A great deal is also made (and rightly so) about what a breakthrough the show represented in its multicultural casting. Shatner, who also serves as host, repeats many of the same stories he used in his book, Star Trek Memories, as do his old cast mates. Indeed, this is one of several Star Trek retrospective tapes in which Nichols or someone else tells the story about her encounter with Martin Luther King Jr., at a point when she was considering quitting the show because her part seemed so inconsequential. --Marshall Fine
