September 1987. With the launch of Star Trek: The Next Generation, Gene Roddenberry somehow managed to recapture lightning in a bottle.
The strange magic that for more than two decades had sustained Star Trek, the cancelled space fantasy that refused to take a curtain call, had apparently blessed its successor as well. It was off network syndication that had transformed the original Star Trek from a qualified flop to an undeniable success story, and it was first run syndication that made this new incarnation a full fledged hit on the small screen; in fact, it was the highest rated dramatic series in syndication during much of its seven year run, and its popularity inspired four feature films and two spin off series. Now, timed to publish on the occasion of the series’ twenty fifth anniversary, Star Trek: The Next Generation 365 will celebrate the show that introduced a whole new generation to the wonders of space exploration. Featuring new and rarely seen photographs and illustrations, as well as now classic set photography, development art and newly restored frame grabs from key episodes, Star Trek: The Next Generation 365 provides a fresh, accessible overview of the entire series, including an authorised guide to all 178 episodes. A visual celebration of the voyages of officers Picard, Riker, Data, Worf, Troi and more, the book’s behind thescenes anecdotes and in depth episode analysis are sure to appeal to casual and longtime fans of the award winning show alike.
