My rating: 4 of 5 stars

An interesting look at the genesis of Star Trek, from before there was even Star Trek, through The Animated Series, through a few aborted concepts, to Star Trek VI. Told through the words of the people involved in the series, so there are multiple views on any given thing. One thing is for certain: for any Star Trek don't put all your eggs in the "What would Roddenberry do?" basket because it's clear that while there was a good idea, and a few good moments, he wasn't the Trek messiah people paint him to be :-) I think that what makes Star Trek what it is are the people involved and the stories told in the universe. Saying that something "isn't star trek" is a quick (and not so sophisticated) way of dismissing it.
