""The Making of Yesterday's Enterprise"" is from story co-writer and long-time ""Star Trek: The Next Generation"" script coordinator Eric A. Stillwell, and this book deftly chronicles the behind-the-scenes creation of the acclaimed episode ""Yesterday's Enterprise"" (ranked as the #1 series episode by Entertainment Weekly) from its inception to the final product and beyond. Honest and insightful, this book provides a definitive behind-the-scenes look for anybody who has ever entertained the idea of writing for television; or simply for the curious fan who has ever wondered what it's really like to work on the most popular franchise in television history. This book is a step-by-step journey through the process of developing and writing a story for television, from initial concept to final teleplay.
