    Great information to know. I was aware that the book included scenes from other episodes when it came to production and bloopers. When I mentioned "37 episodes" I was strictly referring to "deleted scenes."
    That happens to be what I'm most interested in. But I did enjoy the production portion very much as well.

    I think part of the thing with featuring stills from deleted or extended scenes is that if it's a conversation between Kirk and Spock and you have a still from a deleted portion -- it tends to look like a generic picture of any Kirk/Spock interaction. That's why the Peter Kirk in the command chair is so compelling -- because it is 100% unique to that episode.
    SPOILERS
    The same with the featured pictures of Lang's demise. Exciting because in the aired episode he pretty much just vanished. Ditto Spock and Uhura in the new Rec Room, the Ent crew on Mudd's world, the scene of Kirk and Ele'en leaving the tent, etc., etc.
    Hope sales are great and crossing my fingers for a volume 2.

    I've had it since it released, and never did more than skim it. :eek:

    At least you knew the picture was there LOL.
    I had an idea to read one page a day from the start of the year but forgot to do it and felt I should start next Jan, I'm going to start one page from today or I'll never actually read it.

    At the end when Spock goes into the control room to fix the engines he gets stung by a bee (the hive was what was jamming the engines) -- and he shows Kirk his swollen finger.

    If you pause on Spock after he comes back you can see they have made his right index finger huge. There is only a couple of brief shots, but if you have a decent size TV you can see it. Once when they are fixing the navigation (at 47:53 on the Blu-ray Spock is actually holding his finger up for Kirk to see) and then when they are walking out of the control room and Spock grabs his tricorder (at 48:16-48:32.)

    Definitely in the Trek novel by James Blish! I was recently scanning the pages of the book (haven't read it since 1979 probably) and discovered this whopper! Glad they didn't use it in the episode, although it looks like they filmed it that way, as where exactly did the Bees come from? Outer space like in a Doctor Who episode explains?

    I really enjoyed the behind the scenes production stuff. Clear looks at the planet globes, extended, and alternate matte paintings, ect...
    The caverns of Janus VI from "Devil in the Dark" sure looked pretty far out originally. Seeing new material from Trek after all these years is, to coin a phrase, 'fascinating'. ;)

    For anyone interested, the US Amazon store now has the book for $25.44. A great deal, if you ask me.

    I didn't have to pick it up. I got it for my birthday. Along with Spock socks, and another Trek book. :)

    Got it on hold at the library yesterday. I really got a kick out of the bloopers section. There's one photo where Spock points at the camera while holding something in his hand and grins. Perfect meme face. I also liked the one where Kirk's laughing maniacally in his chair and McCoy's looking at him like, "what the heck?" And McCoy spitting out the frost makeup - looks like he took some nasty cough medicine.

    We should have a caption contest of some of these goof scenes.

    So I got the book the other day not only is it GORGEOUS and revelatory (details in some photos will settle a few longstanding arguments), but it's very well-researched. Except for Drexler's mythos-laden intro, it's one of the few books on the subject where I haven't winced every few pages at some error or rumor treated as fact. Buy buy buy it.
