Publisher's Summary

This is the unauthorized, uncensored, and unbelievable true story behind the making of a pop culture phenomenon. 

The original Star Trek series debuted in 1966 and has spawned five TV series spin-offs and a dozen feature films, with an upcoming one from Paramount arriving in 2016. 

The Fifty-Year Mission is a no-holds-barred oral history of five decades of Star Trek, told by the people who were there. Hear from the hundreds of television and film executives, programmers, writers, creators, and cast as they unveil the oftentimes shocking story of Star Trek's ongoing 50-year mission - a mission that has spanned from the classic series to the animated show, the many attempts at a relaunch through the beloved feature films. 

Make no mistake, this isn't just an audiobook for Star Trek fans. Here is a volume for all fans of pop culture and anyone interested in the nuts and bolts of a television touchstone.

Content good, delivery frustrating

I love Star Trek and normally soak up new content, but the manner in which this book is narrated frustrated even me. The content is delivered in short soundboard, each attributed to the original speaker. This soon wears thin and I couldn't finish the book.

Something went wrong. Please try again in a few minutes.
