September 1987. With the launch of Star Trek: The Next Generation, Gene Roddenberry somehow managed to recapture lightning in a bottle. The strange magic that for more than two decades had sustained Star Trek, the cancelled space fantasy that refused to take a curtain call, had apparently blessed its successor as well. It was off-network syndication that had transformed the original Star Trek from a qualified flop to an undeniable success story, and it was first-run syndication that made this new incarnation a full-fledged hit on the small screen; in fact, it was the highest-rated dramatic series in syndication during much of its seven-year run, and its popularity inspired four feature films and two spin-off series.
Now, timed to publish on the occasion of the series’ twenty-fifth anniversary, Star Trek: The Next Generation 365 will celebrate the show that introduced a whole new generation to the wonders of space exploration. Featuring new and rarely seen photographs and illustrations, as well as now-classic set photography, development art and newly restored frame grabs from key episodes, Star Trek: The Next Generation 365 provides a fresh, accessible overview of the entire series, including an authorised guide to all 178 episodes.
A visual celebration of the voyages of officers Picard, Riker, Data, Worf, Troi and more, the book’s behind-the-scenes anecdotes and in-depth episode analysis are sure to appeal to casual and longtime fans of the award-winning show alike.
