Reviews

Ellison's numerous fans along with the general clamoring for all things Trek are bound to put this book in high demand.

-- "Library Journal"

What makes this the ST book of the year (maybe all time) is Ellison's sputtering, raging, fuming introduction in which he sets the record straight, by God!

-- "Booklist"

For the first time, science fiction maverick Harlan Ellison's first-draft 'Star Trek' script is performed in its entirety, with ace voice talents John Rubinstein and Scott Brick gleefully taking on the major roles. A desperate Dr. 'Bones' McCoy dives into a time portal and changes the course of human history, while Captain Kirk and Mr. Spock are right behind, bent on reversing the damage. So begins one of the most popular episodes of the original 'Star Trek' television series. It's also the most controversial. Reading from a number of interviews and essays, the outspoken Ellison re-voices his battles with 'Star Trek' creator Gene Roddenberry over the direction of the story. Both Ellison's original script and the aired 'edited' version received major awards. So, listen and decide which version you prefer.
