So, it’s been a while since we did one of these.
The good people over at StarTrek.com, having failed to learn from past mistakes, have opened their virtual doors and provided me with a bit of room to run around over on their site. Once unleashed, I wasted no time spray-painting the walls with yet another installment of my semi-regularly recurring blog series, “Ten for Ward.”
For those of you who are new to the Fog and need an explanation, here’s the deal: I’m invited every so often to provide a list of ten favorite (and hopefully interesting) Trek-related whatevers based on…well…whatever I can think up whenever my editor rings my bell and asks for a new column.
For this latest installment, I list ten of my favorite Star Trek books that take a peek behind the curtain to show us how the various television series (or films) were made. I’m a sucker for this sort of book, and the development and production of the original Star Trek series in particular has always been a favorite topic of mine to revisit. Obviously there are more than ten such books, but I’ve got a whole theme thing going on over there a StarTrek.com, so I had to stick to my guns…all ten of ’em.
What did I come up with?
As is the case with these columns, mine is not intended to be a “definitive list, so any and all suggestions are more than welcome. Feel free to offer your ideas here or in the comments section for the column itself.
