An oral history of “Star Trek”

via An oral history of “Star Trek”

From Smithsonian.com, a post that every Star Trek fan would love to read. This includes excerpts from a new book, “The Fifty Year Mission: The First 25 Years,” by Edward Gross and Mark A. Altman. The book is made up of a series of interviews of the people involved with original Star Trek series. I did not realize that Lucille Ball and her Desilu Studio was the first to pick up the show at the very beginning.

If you would like to read several interviews from the cast, producers, the creator Gene Roddenberry, and others, check out this link above.

    I’ll mark the link and go to it after I’ve survived April. I find it interesting how this particular story ballooned into such a huge success with followers from all over the world. What makes that happen, I wonder?

      I will always be a Trekker too. I am currently watching the DVD collection of the original Star Trek. I remember a bunch of us watching it at UCSF in the basement room of the old dormitory. Future doctors and nurses. I miss the original cast.
