This is a must read/listen. This gives a broad perspective on the ongoing creation of Star Trek from many different views. It devilianizes certain key players by describing their roles and the tasks they were given to accomplish, leaving you in awe of how they got Star Trek to the little and big screens in the first place. It starts slow by listing all of the people and there roles, but after that it is thoroughly captivating. Very well done!
