The sequel to the bestselling Star Trek Memories, documenting in deliciously lurid and candid detail all the behind-the-scenes shenanigans in the making of the six Star Trek movies, with on-the-scene reporting from the set of the seventh in which...Kirk dies!

Star Trek Movie Memories recounts all the chaos, creative turmoil, backstage politics, power plays and production nightmares that permeated every one of the six Star Trek movies, including the accumulated grudges that haven't yet mellowed with the passage of time. And the stories... Nicholas Meyer writing the script for Star Trek II in twelve days... Kirstie Alley doing her Leonard Nimoy imitation in an audition... How Kirk's love interest in Star Trek IV began as a role for Eddie Murphy, and you can imagine the rest (or maybe not).

With stories and quotes from the principles that have never before been uttered in public, this will deliver a truly unprecedented behind-the-scenes view of the Trek films that will amaze even the most avid Trekker. And on top of it all, the hardcover will be published in time for the seventh film, which will present the perfect opportunity to tie the old crew and stars including Robert Wise, Ricardo Montalban, Christopher Lloyd, Christopher Plummer, Christian Slater to Patrick Stewart and the cast of The Next Generation. The torch will be passed, and William Shatner will tell us all about how it feels as his character is killed off in the film's finale.

Quotes & Awards

  • Shatner is his usual hammy self here,…but he’s always entertaining and even introspective as he contemplates growing older and getting a divorce and conveys his regrets about alienating his colleagues—particularly James Doohan. An able sequel to Shatner’s Star Trek Memories.

    Booklist

  • Shatner's personal log of post–Trek TV series ups and downs provides a strong story of his mishaps and achievements…A vivid story of the rise of Star Trek’s big-screen career. Politics and personalities abound in his expose.

    " This was absolutely hilarious, although not quite as funny as Star Trek Memories. Who knew Shatner had such a great sense of humor. There are just a lot of great inside stories about the making of the Star Trek movies. I enjoyed it very much. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 John | 11/28/2012

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Zach Klinefelter | 8/17/2012

    " I loved this book. "Star Trek: Movie Memories" is an enlightening and surprisingly humble take on making the "Trek" films from Kirk himself. Shatner's memoirs are nostalgic, funny, and at times quite sad. I haven't read Shatner's predecessor yet, but it's a must-read now. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Matthew Pavlichko | 9/29/2011

    " I thought this was a nice pretentious-free book looking back on Shatner's experiences making the ST movies. It talks about the usual script and budget challenges but never takes itself too seriously which is always nice in a book like this. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jason Cross | 7/28/2011

    " You can laugh it up, but considering I was like 12 when I read this, and much of it was probably above my head, I now know that Shatner lived in a pickup truck with his dog. I now know that, and you do not. "
