Mark A. Altman has been hailed as the world's foremost Trekspert by the Los Angeles Times. He is also a former journalist and a writer/producer for numerous movies and TV series including Castle and Agent X. Edward Gross has covered film and television as a member of the editorial staff of a wide variety of magazines. He is the author of numerous non-fiction books, and, next to coauthor Mark Altman, has written more about Star Trek over the past 35 years than just about anyone else.
Breathtaking in scope and depth, this is a must-read for Star Trek lovers as well as anyone who wants a better understanding of how television and film production works. --Booklist, starred review An absolute must for any Star Trek fan. --Kirkus Reviews As a lifelong fan, I thought I knew everything there was to know about Star Trek. Thankfully, I was wrong. Thanks to revealing, honest and -- dare I say it? -- fascinating interviews from the insiders who were really there, The Fifty-Year Mission is an epic tome that's full of so much fantastic information, I felt like I was discovering the incredible behind-the-scenes story of Star Trek (and Hollywood, for that matter) all over again. It's a page-turner in every sense of the word, and I could not put it down. --Scott Mantz, Access Hollywood
