Neither Trekker nor Trekkie, I can however sum up this book in one word: “Fascinating.”
Apart from an episode-by-episode, season-by-season rundown of the series from TOS to TNG, as well as the motion pictures that came in between, Set Phasers To Stun includes interesting fodder on the creative processes behind the production (at times these turned out to be destructive forces instead), littered with humour, irony and the occasional sarcasm.
The author also provides a critical take on “modern” Star Trek films towards the end of the book. You can tell that he’s not a fan of the reboot.
