Free download Star Trek Memories é PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Tner aka Captain James Tiberius Kirk Gathering his personal recollections along with those of Leonard Nimoy DeForest Kelley George Takei Walter Koenig Nichelle Nichols Majel Barrett Roddenberry and Star Trek producers designers production crew and special effects wizards William Shatner’s Star Trek Memories is crammed with the back stage drama of the series’ creation Here in the stars’ and creators’ own words are such memories as• Shatner and Nimoy’s close friendship of almost thirty years• The outrageous practical jokes of Star Trek’s cast crew and especially Gene Roddenberry• The truth about Kirk and Uhura’s first prime time interracia. Beautiful This collection of memories about the Star Trek television show feels very much like a scrapbook it s filled with snippets from throughout the show s run photographs of people behind the scenes and uotes from some of the series most beloved actors It s kind of a memoir but it s a research project Shatner meticulously pieces together the history of the show and of the people involved He begins at the beginning with Gene Roddenberry s childhood and his love of stories and he traces Roddenberry s long and winding journey to sci fi fame The book tells in chronological order the different events that came together to make the show possible He shares highlights from each season He even tells how things began to unravel and the different events that led to cancellationShatner has also tracked down many of the people connected with the show not just actors but also people involved with the production and he s interviewed them I like that Shatner takes the time to uote these people directly huge block uotes abound throughout the book Shatner uses this to great effect For example in one chapter he describes a series of pranks that he pulled on Leonard Nimoy He also uotes Nimoy extensively on the same topic The result is a hilarious back and forth with both perspectives contrasting sharply At the same time the warmth and friendship between Nimoy and Shatner comes through loud and clearFinally I admire Shatner s openness Some of the people he interviewed had some resentment or even animosity toward him In one of the interviews a fellow actor even said I need to tell you why I despise you Shatner could have left those parts out but he didn t He could have tried to rebut but he didn t do that either He let them say it all he gave them that chance to be heard He even agreed with some of their points This is freedom of speech at its finest interviewees are being uoted and even supported and never judged not even by the one they re criticizing In this book Shatner doesn t even try to shield himself And that may be because this book isn t really about William Shatner it s about Star Trek It s a collective project about a group of people It s a chance to preserve many of the thoughts feelings and memories from the people at the heart of it Shatner worked really hard on researching this book and writing it he s the author after all but he is never the focus I think that takes both strength and humility and I am uite impressed
