The best Trek resource. 25. April 2006
Von 40ish jazz lover - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
This is hands-down the best resource for reading about the original series' episodes.
The book is mainly an episode by episode guide.
Asherman gives thoughtful analyses of each episode. He is fair to the writers and series production crew. He resists slamming the widely discredited (as goofy) third season.
My only reservation that keeps me from giving the book five stars: I wish it were more intellectual. It is fitting to expect an intellectual assessment of the series as it was one of the most thought-provoking science fiction series after the 1960s Outer Limits. Certainly, this was a more thoughtful series, in comparison to the gadget-crazy subsequent television series incarnations of Star Trek.
Awkward points: the book was first written in the 1980s, prior to the release of the series on video tapes. Thus, it lacks references to the episodes' being on tape.
A fun companion to this book would be the special "Entertainment Weekly Special Star Trek Issue" (Fall, 1994) that is devoted to Star Trek. This edition gives tongue-in-cheek number ratings for the episodes.

A Must for Every TOS Trekker 8. November 2009
Von Rob Boyte - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I bought this book in 1991 because I had watched all 80 eps of Star Trek many times over and wanted more info on the series. It is part of our cultural mythos and references always come up about Star Trek that sometimes one likes to research.

When I moved to a smaller apartment I thinned my library and this was one of the books that I gave my sister, also a Trekker. Big mistake - I missed having it. Hence I hunted it down and got another copy for myself.

The Compendium Reviewed 26. Juni 2012
Von Morris Sullivan - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
When I found this book on Amazon.com, I was actually looking for a book on the Star Trek Animated Series from the 1970's, specifically an episode guide of the animated series. When I first came across the Star Trek Compendium, I glanced at it, then moved on. When I was unable to find anything on the Star Trek Animated Series,I went back to take a closer look at The Star Trek Compendium. That's when I discovered that it contained a section on the animated series along with an episode guide. I was already sold.

I consider myself something of a Trekker, but not rabidly so. I've read my share of magazine articles on Star Trek, but just scanning through The Star Trek Compendium (copyright 1989, 1993), I still managed to learn quite a bit about the original series and how it came to be. After TWO pilot episodes, NBC gave the go-ahead for the series, and the rest is history. Yet there is quite a bit of history to be had in Allan Asherman's book that details the development process that went into Star Trek. With plenty of black & white photos throughout the volume, the episode synopses are long and informative. Asherman gives the names of the characters in each episode, but disappointingly omits the names of the actors portraying those characters. However, all is not lost in this department since said actors are listed in the back of the book in an Index Of Principals (actors) which includes their character's name, and episode number in which they appeared.

There is a page devoted to the syndication of the original series, and a page devoted to the Star Trek Animated Series followed by a full episode guide for it. The synopses for these episodes are noticeably shorter, but then these episodes are only a half-hour long. Since the animated episodes were written by many of the writers of the original series' episodes, the animated series is held in high regard.

Asherman goes on the describe the Star Trek feature films all the way through Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country, with full synopses along with background info, and photos. He finishes the tome with an index of episode titles in alphabetical order for the original series as well as the animated series, along with the aforementioned Index Of Principals. An interesting and informative book that I'm proud to own.

Non Fiction 3. September 2007
Von Blue Tyson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
The Star Trek Compendium is an episode guide to Star Trek that is very well done. The episode lists and information appear to be quite accurate and informative, at least to my non-expert self. There is an introduction and some background to the Star Trek phenomenon as well. Anyone with interest should be happy with this.

An extremely interesting book for classic Star Trek fans... 14. Januar 1998
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
The book begins with an interesting narration of the writer's introduction to the Star Trek universe, back in the 60's, and passes on to the complete sequence of events that preceeded Star Trek's premiere. The best part, however, is the episode guide, which, by providing accurate and objective summaries, without inserting personal opinions and irrelevancies. By far one of the best guides to the Star Trek universe!
