Avid Trekkers are sure to be delighted with this first-hand account from Captain Kirk himself. Tidbits tumble forth: at first Roddenberry envisioned a Captain Robert April at the helm of the USS Yorktown, with a half-Martian "satanic" Mr. Spock at his side. As the high concept took flesh, a fight arose among studio executives over Spock: How important should he be? What should his ears look like?-questions that attained even greater importance when, to everyone's bewilderment, the mind-melding Vulcan bested Kirk as the focus of the Trekker cult. Soon the rest of the cast signed on, along with ace producer Gene Coon, whom Shatner praises to the detriment of icon Roddenberry: "Roddenberry created Star Trek, and Coon made it fly." Leonard Nimoy's clashes with management, why laser-guns became "phasers": there's enough here to satiate the most avid Trekker, delivered with pop and pizazz. After just three years, atired cast called it quits, or so they thought.
