The world changed forever on September 8, 1966, with the debut of Gene Roddenberry’s ambitious Star Trek: The Original Series. Only, the world didn’t know it yet. Star Trek ran for three somewhat – at the time – unheralded seasons, but evolved over the years into a game-changing entertainment and pop-culture phenomenon that continues to live long and prosper. Star Trek – A Celebration, available Now from Hero Collector, is the ultimate guide to the making of the Star Trek that started it all. Written by Ben Robinson and Ian Spelling, Star Trek – A Celebration’s 256 pages are filled with brand-new and archival conversations, and 200-plus photos and sketches, many rarely seen or never-before-seen, that shine a fresh light on the actors, writers, directors, production and costume designers, composers, prop builders, visual effects and makeup artists, and more, who brought Star Trek to life. A Celebration also pays tribute to the fans who campaigned to save the show, looks back at the earliest Trek conventions, and breaks down 12 key episodes.


“Our goal was to craft a book that was the written and visual equivalent of a great convention,” Spelling says. “We’ve brought fresh eyes to everything and tried to strip the myths away from the reality and, we’ve discovered new stories that had never been told. We tracked down actors and crew whom people hadn’t heard from much – or ever – and are thrilled to include them in A Celebration.” Adds Robinson, “Fans have read and seen bits and pieces of Star Trek’s production history, but A Celebration gathers everything in one place and puts it in context. We tracked down some incredibly rare pictures and artwork that have never been printed before. However well you think you know Star Trek, there’s something new for you. It’s really the Star Trek book I’ve always wanted to add to my collection.”


Star Trek – A Celebration is the second installment in Hero Collector’s series of Star Trek Celebration books. The 256-page hardcover is priced at $34.95/U.S. and $44.95/Canada. It’s available now at


Look out for our review of the book, which will drop sometime next week.
