The dismal truth about Star Trek is that it had Gene Roddenberry, the original creator, stepping away for the series find its second wind. He will always be viewed as the genius who shepherded into existence finest sci-fi franchise ever. However, his later vision of what Star Trek was, clashed with different creatives and with a lot of what made the first TV series extraordinary. It’s no mishap that he was forced out of Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan. For the record, this ostensibly remains the best of the twelve movies made till date. Here’s what we have further….
1. Twelve Books To Be Thirteen Soon
Yes, it’s true. Those twelve movies will soon be thirteen. Therefore, it’s not accidental that the new book The Fifty-Year Mission: The Complete Uncensored, Unauthorized Oral History of Star Trek – The First 25 Years is in stores at this moment. What’s more, the second volume will land in August. This book is what is getting my attention. This is basically because it uncovers that Gene Roddenberry wrote a Star Trek film where Captain Kirk battles Jesus Christ.
2. A Must Read
According to The Hollywood Reporter, this book that is a must-read in case you’re a Star Trek fan or you simply appreciate extraordinary Hollywood stories.
