Coming soon to TV CONFIDENTIAL: Star Trek historian and Gene Roddenberry biographer MARC CUSHMAN on the back story of STAR TREK: THE MOTION PICTURE, including how director Robert Wise helped pave the way for Leonard Nimoy to come aboard; why the movie started filming before the script was finished (and how the expensive special effects nearly sank the entire production); how the iconic theme by Jerry Goldsmith came about by accident; and the minor, amusing but nonetheless interesting controversy involving Roddenberry and the sci-fi parody QUARK. THESE ARE THE VOYAGES: GENE RODDENBERRY AND STAR TREK IN THE 1970s Volumes I, II, and III are all available through Jacobs Brown Media Group
