The REAL story
10 February 2006 | by (Houston, Texas) – See all my reviews

This video is based on the book of the same name, by the same authors, which is the most complete and accurate version ever told of the making of Star Trek. Herb Solow was the "Executive in Charge of Production" for Desilu during the 1960s, and Bob Justman was Gene Roddenberry's right-hand man. Gene made the big decisions, Herb approved them, and Bob was the one who actually got them done. The book is a nice companion to "The Making of Star Trek" by Stephen Whitfield and Gene Roddenberry (published in the 1960s), but it goes into much more detail. It's written as a series of dialog's between Bob and Herb. The video, hosted by Herb Solow, features interviews of dozens of people who were directly involved with the production of the original series. The book is essential reading, and the video is essential viewing for any true fan of the original Star Trek.
