This is Walter Koenig's journal of the making of the first Star Trek feature film. Koenig, of course, played "Chekov" in the TV series and the movies. This is an interesting account of his experiences on the set of that first film. Star Trek fans should enjoy it.
A great read

This is a wonderful book. Walter Koenig has a gift for writing in such a way that you feel he's just standing nearby chatting with you. His observations of "Star Trek" and making movies in general are witty and insightful. Check out his other book, the autobiographical "Warped Factors" for deeper insights into his complex personality, and how his many acting efforts after "Star Trek" were overshadowed in many ways by the character of Chekov (and an even deeper view of his wonderful sense of humor.)Thank you, Walter!

What a treat to be able to read the republication of Walter Koenig's journal of the making of "Star Trek: The Motion Picture." Koenig gives a light-hearted and detailed look at the behind-the-scenes action of the film, including his fascination with Persis Khambatta's bald head and his quest for Chekov's one great close-up. :-) Any fan of the original series is sure to enjoy this book; you'll feel like you're right on the set!
