Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"Essential reading for any Star Trek and movie fan."

-trekmovie.com

When Nicholas Meyer was asked to direct the troubled second Star Trek film, he was something less than a true believer. A bestselling author and successful director, he had never been a fan of the TV series. But as he began to ponder the appeal of Kirk, Spock, et al., he realized that their story was a classical nautical adventure yarn transplanted into space and-armed with that insight-set out on his mission: to revitalize Trek.

Synopsis:

"The View from the Bridge" is Meyer's enormously entertaining account of his involvement with the "Star Trek" films as well as his illustrious career in the movie business.

About the Author

Nicholas Meyer is a novelist, screenwriter, and director. He recently adapted Philip Roth's The Dying Animal as Elegy with Ben Kingsley and Penelope Cruz. He lives in Pacific Palisades, California.
