TITAN BOOKS is no stranger to all things awesome and such is the case with one of their latest releases. What if every Star Trek: The Original Series episode was a movie event? “The Changeling”, “Return To Tomorrow”, “Whom Gods Destroy”…what would the movie poster look like? This was the inspiration to develop a one-of-a-kind set of images for the series that launched a franchise.
The shadowy figure is actually a statue from the start of the episode. Sometimes I wonder if that’s what the aliens were really meant to look like if Star Trek had not been held back by cost and special effects limitations of the time. The circles indicate the sound waves generated by the Scalosians. – Juan Ortiz
This gorgeous, over-sized book, (365 X 260 mm) perfectly displays each one of Juan’s creations. The book is broken down into Seasons One, Two and Three and has 100 pages of amazing images. I really enjoyed the Index and Commentary section at the end. It features every image, in order along with:
- Original show information and synopsis
- A key quote from the episode
- Commentary from Juan about the image he created
No matter what you call yourself, Star Trek Fans, Trekkies, Trekers, this book gives everyone incredibly conceptualized images from that very first episode, “The Man Trap“, on September 8, 1966, to the final episode, “The Cage” which was never even broadcast when the show ended in 1969.
