About the Book

The Biography of the Leading Science Fiction TV Program

STAR TREK! The long, hard battle of television's first tentative step
toward adult science fiction, with the complete story of how the *U.S.S.
Enterprise* was designed, her weaponry, equipment and power
resources, the original concept behind the show, how the continuity is
maintained, backgrounds of the characters, biographies of the stars,
and pictures, diagrams, illustrations -- the whole authentic history.

Although Gene Roddenberry is listed as a co-author, the book was written by Whitfield. Roddenberry's only contribution seems to be the lyrics to the Star Trek Theme on page 7.
