These Are The Voyages: Season 2...
 
Any further word on when These Are The Voyages: TOS Season 2 will be released?

I missed the excerpt in Geek Magazine.

That would be nice. Despite the flubs of Volume 1 I still found it to be an enjoyable read. And it adds the fascinating narrative that is the story of the making of TOS.

Since almost all of my favorite episodes are from Season Two, I am (re)learning the meaning of patience.....

Yes, despite the errors in book 1. I am eagerly waiting to get my hands on book 2.

I see T'Bonz added some information in Trektoday News Items.

Cushman can add a lot of value in covering Season 2. Inside Star Trek didn't have much detail of the goings on beyond the point where Desilu was sold.

I see Cushman promises to reveal why Gene Coon suddenly quit the show. I have heard that he had a massive fight with Roddenberry over Bread and Circuses, but we shall see what the memo's say.

Here's hoping for a much improved editing job for Season 2, but there can be no faulting the volume of research the author did for the Season 1 book - hopefully the new book will be similarly impressive.

Assuming he's not again passing off his extrapolations as fact.

Well, that would be nice too :lol:

I haven't seen any memos from "Bread and Circuses" indicating a massive fight. There's a letter for WGA arbitration in which the two indicate they want to share credit 50-50 for the episode which suggests the opposite.

Inside Star Trek went into rather intimate detail about Coon's departure, anyway (and it wasn't a fight). I'm not sure Cushman can present much more than that. Considering the two collaborated on Questor only a few years later, as well as other correspondence, I find the idea that they had a blow-up pretty suspect. But, we'll see...

I'm going to have to pull it off the shelf and read Inside Star Trek again.

It's not without its flaws, but it's still the best book about the making of the series out there (and its astonishing, really, how much Cushman pulls directly from it).

Agreed. Putting my copy in storage was not a good move in hindsight! Bob Justman signed it for me, so I wanted to preserve it.

Might have to find another second hand copy somewhere for reading.

There are plenty of second-hand copies on Amazon these days.

From Ralph Senesky's Blog, Director of some TOS episodes and a boatload of other beloved episodic TV:

This was my first STAR TREK without Gene Coon as producer (and of course as writer). He stated he was leaving because he was burned out. I’ve wondered if Paramount’s purchase of Desilu Studio, with the subsequent shortening of the shooting schedule (and whatever other restrictions the new regime brought) could have contributed to Gene’s burnout.

I always thought it had to do with his bringing the Klingons on board, or creative differences with the POB...

I'm in the middle of reading an eBook of it to review, hopefully next week. Damn thing is 700 pages long and even though I'm a natural speedreader, that takes a bit of time, because I'm also a fan who wants to read the stuff, not just super skim it! :lol:
