Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I've finally finished going through this and my final assessment is a shrug. IF you've never read ANY background on the original series then you'll get something out of this book. But if you've been following Star Trek since at least the '70s if not when the show was actually in production then there will be next to nothing new to be learned in this book.

In regards to the photos there are a few genuinely rare shots that I'm not at all familiar with seeing before. But that's it. Most everything else I'd already seen displayed somewhere else before.

The title Star Trek 365 has no more import than there are 365 pages covering the original series and some background info related to the show or the fandom it spawned. Actually there are more than 365 pages if you count the index pages.

Candidly I'm still critical of the book's format in that there is a lot of wasted page space in using this unusually sized, chunky format. I still think they would have done better to have used a more familiar trade size hardcover.

Overall I think previous publications have covered this materiel better even if they didn't have some of the nice pictures included here.

Format: Hardcover
This is a well written overview of the entire Original Series. If you're new to Star Trek, you get a synopsis of every episode plus little known behind-the-scenes tidbits that you will enjoy. You may find yourself going back and referring to it again and again. Warning: It's not a small book, but I love the format. Enjoy!

Outstanding book Aug. 26 2010
By Gary H - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
The best book about Star Trek TOS since the Justman/Solow book. Really well done, with great photos (many I have never seen before). The text on each episode captures many anecdotes that I had not heard before either. And I love that the authors included some early aspects of fandom -- including the first few New York conventions. If you are a fan of the original series -- this is a "must have" book. I hope they do another one for the first six movies featuring the original cast.

A Celebration of Gene Roddenberry's Star Trek! Sept. 13 2010
By Michael OConnor - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
STAR TREK 365 is a time capsule to the magic that was Star Trek. Sure to gladden the hearts of all us moldy oldy Trekkers, it offers up a 744-page tribute to Roddenberry's original, classic show filled with clear, crisp color photographs and incisive text. To coin a phrase, it's "Fascinating!"

Authors Block and Erdmann take a roughly chronological approach to the original series, detailing the show's origins, its beloved characters and the actors who portrayed them, behind-the-scenes info, specific episodes, themes, special effects, make-up, etc. Yet STAR TREK 365 is the kind of book where you just jump in at a random page and enjoy!

Paging through the book you're reminded of what a fine job Roddenberry & Co. did back in 1966. It not only brings back fond memories of Kirk, Spock, McCoy, Scotty and all the others in action but also makes one realize how much better Star Trek was in comparison to the tripe that dominated the boob tube back then. Roddenberry, Gene Coon and Bob Justman brought a sensitivity and humanity to Star Trek that was sorely missing in so many other shows, especially in the first two seasons. The show's humanism and sense of optimism was underscored by the superb acting that helped create the endearing Enterprise crew not to mention the equally memorable villains like Khan, Charlie X and Trelane. In particular, though Spock in some respects stole Kirk's thunder, watch Season One and Two shows and marvel at what a damn fine acting job Shatner did as Kirk.

The photographs are a combination of color and b&w production shots and candids, some never-been-seen, of the regulars, guest stars, the Enterprise and other starships, aliens and monsters, special effects, dramatic scenes from various shows and so on. All in all, a visual delight.

In short, STAR TREK 365 may not be THE definitive Star Trek book but it is an engagingly-written and appealingly-presented package. And a steal at $29.95! Beam this one on board; you won't be sorry! Recommended.

Decent book...but cheap quality binding. Dec 27 2010
By Anton Karidian - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
One can spend hours sitting at a couch flipping through this book. The problem is that the hardcover is cheaply made and the glue that binds the spine falls apart and then you're dealing with pages coming loose.

What fantastic little Original Series Star Trek book......... Sept. 4 2010
By Dustin Abell - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The anecdotes and reminiscences in this book are thoroughly entertaining and very illuminating in many instances. The episode descriptions are brief 1 page affairs, which are perfectly fine for the format this book is presented in. If you happen to want much more detailed descriptions of the actual people involved in the technical aspects of the show or more thorough story synopisis' i would suggest picking up the Star Trek Compendium. Even being as familiar as I am about the production of the original series there were still numerous stories and observations in this book I'd never heard before. The pictures chosen are also outstanding, many, many of them previously unseen before. Behind the scenes, publicity stills, alternate views of scenes from the episodes themselves.....they're really great, there was absolutely no issue for me regarding the quality of the images used in this book as i had read in an earlier review. This is a real first rate book and I'm happy to have picked it up and added it my collection, I've enjoyed reading through it over the past few nights and if your a fan of the original show, you just can't go wrong with this one! Well done Paula!
