^Wow, you take good care of your books. They're in better shape than my copies, in a lot of cases.

Wow that pic brings back some memories. Until a few days ago, I had forgot that the Star Trek Medical Manual even existed.

Here are my Blish books:




and some more old ones from my shelf:



I'm never parting with these things.
I recommend the two Haldeman books if you haven't read them...a little wonky on characterization, but fun.

Anybody got a program from the opening night of "The Wrath of Khan"? I do. Not heavy on plot but the photos are great!
I used to have the program from the opening night of TMP. No idea what became of it. Probably buried in a box in the attic somewhere!

I also had an issue of Starlog autographed by Robert Wise that's probably in the same box.
Should maybe dig those old boxes out and have a look - never know what kind of goodies might be there.

I have the opening night programs from the first three movies - treasured mementos.

Nobody else mentioned the James Blish episode adaptations from the 70s......twelve books, plus a 13th with the Harry Mudd episodes and a third Mudd tale all written by his wife following his death. The earlier you go back in the series, the more liberties are taken with certain plots, with some very significant changes. Blish's MENAGERIE adapts only the Pike flashbacks and not the Kirk-Spock framing story. Blish thought doing both was unfeasible, though it wouldn't surprise me if several fans had attempted if not succeeded the assignment.
Since I'm above all else a 70s collector, my other TREKS consist of the Concordance, the Compendium (70s and 90s versions), SPOCK MUST DIE, the Foster Logs and I AM NOT SPOCK UNTIL THE SECOND BOOK.
Ah yes, I have these as well although in a three book compendium from SciFi book club.

Thanks, I'm kind of a nut about that. Always careful.

I have those at home but I haven't read them in about three decades. I went through a long period where I had every STAR TREK book there was [except the 1968 children's novel MISSION TO HORATIUS, which I never even heard of until very recently].

Then, shortly into the TMP era, the novels became too numerous and some of them were just terrible, so I went astray.
