When Star Trek began in 1966, it instantly captured the attention of science fiction fans, and gained an attentive audience. When NBC threatened to cancel the show after the second season, the fans wrote in, demanding that it be returned to the air. After the third season, paramount, NBC, and industry experts felt Star Trek was past. But the fans did not. They started clubs, organized conventions, published newsletters, and kept writing to Paramount to ask the Star Trek be revived. Through these actions, they kept interest in the show alive and flourishing. At last, fan efforts resulted in the Star Trek movies, and Star Trek: The Next Generation. Currently, Star Trek lives on in five series - and the adventure continues. Boldly Writing chronicles all of these fan efforts, and recognizes the most valuable resource of Star Trek: its fans. The trends, obstacles, hard work, and success of the revival efforts are detailed through the first 20 years of fan publications. Author Joan Marie Verba has been an active fan since the very beginning of Star Trek, and a zine reader, writer, publisher, and collector since 1969. - Cover.

Review: Boldly Writing

An indepth, issue by issue, elaborate history of Star Trek fanzines published between 1967 and 1987. Without a doubt, this is the nerdiest thing I have ever read. I love Star Trek and I also love fans ... Read full review
