Review : The copy I have is credited to Edward Gross and Mark A. Altman, and its publishing date is 1995. Re-issue perhaps? British Version? God forbid Plaigarism? A fascinating look at shelved ideas. There are no actual scripts, but detailed synopses interspersed with dialogue extracts. Several of the stories are remarkable, the most interesting being "Blood and Fire" and "Blood and Ice" AIDS stories which suggest Regulan Bloodworms were biological weapons. Other stories were bad, and easy to see why they never made it to screen. Others still were wnating but had marvellous potential. The most obvious of these being the Star Trek II episode "The Child". There is even background to Star Trek VI: Starfleet Academy and the first draft of Generations. I would recommend this book to anyone with aspirations of writing for television and Star Trek as one can get a feel for what works and what doesn't. That being said, there are several stories here that would have beaten several aired episodes in terms of plot and story quality. Picking it up for IRĀ£3.50 in '98 was sweet as well!
