- In 1977, "Star Trek" fans should have been treated to a new series, "Star Trek Phase II". All the actors were signed, sets and props were designed, new models were built, scripts were written and filming was about to begin. Just two weeks before the show was to start shooting, Paramount changed tasks, they wanted a motion picture instead. This book looks at these events and includes drawing board designs, blueprints, technical information, memos, sketches, photographs and original source material that has never before been seen. The entire script for the pilot episode is also included along with colour photographs of test footage filmed for the pilot. Questions such as why Spock was the only member of the original crew not to be scripted are also answered.
