This is a must-have for fans of the show, or even those interested in the workings of television, the pop culture of the time.  (Noting in passing, I KNEW they must have had to clear legal with Robert Heinlein to do The Trouble with Tribbles, who sounds like he was very gracious about it.) It continues with a very deep drill-down on each show, a little bit about the scripts that didn't pass muster, the guest stars, and ends with the incredible letter-writing campaign by fans that helped convince NBC to NOT pull the plug on the show, and that whole, tense, are-we-being-cancelled-or-not waiting period for the crew and production team. It doesn't hesitate to point out the flaws in people like Gene Roddenberry and his obsession with making certain episodes, like The Omega Glory, which would come around and bite him later. Like I did when I read the first volume, I'd read a chapter, then watch the episode, so it took me a long time to get through it, but added immeasurably to my enjoyment of the program. Disclaimer: Marc Cushman and Sue Osborn are personal friends, but I don't give five star reviews to just anyone, friend or not. This is truly a fact-filled, interesting and informative read.
