Set Phasers to Stun : 50 Years of Star Trek, Paperback

Set Phasers to Stun : 50 Years of Star Trek Paperback


Forty-seven years after NBC killed it off, Star Trek celebrates its half-century in a state of rude health.

Boldly going where several other people have been before, Marcus Berkmann tells the story of this sturdy science fiction vehicle from its first five-year mission (rudely curtailed to three), through the dark years of the 1970s, the triumphant film series and The Next Generation, to the current 'reboot' films, with a younger cast taking on the characters of Kirk, Spock, McCoy and co. With wit, insight and a huge pile of DVDs, he seeks to answer all the important questions.

Why did Kirk's shirt always get torn when he had a fist fight?

What's the most number of times Uhura said 'Hailing frequencies open, sir' in a single episode? (Seven.) And what's the worst imaginable insult in Klingon? (Your mother has a smooth forehead.)
