Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"...Good words. That's where ideas begin."

— Dr. David Marcus to Admiral James T. Kirk, Star Trek® II: The Wrath of Khan™

It makes us wonder. It makes us smile. But most of all, it makes us think.

More than any other single aspect, Star Trek is defined by the strength of its ideas. For decades this television and movie phenomenon has reached out to its audience, spanning generations and inspiring them not simply with the power of its voice, but with the meaning behind it.

Quotable Star Trek demonstrates the truly universal appeal of Gene Roddenberry's extraorinary creation. Words of wit, wisdom, and compelling insight applicable to everyday life from The Original Series, Star Trek: The Next Generation®, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine®, Star Trek Voyager®, and eight Star Trek motion pictures have been meticulously researched and collected in one volume. Intensely thought-provoking and thoroughly entertaining, Quotable Star Trek has something for everyone, and is a must-have resource for every devoted fan.

About the Author

Jill Sherwin is an admitted lifelong Star Trek® fan and bibliophile who is thrilled to have achieved her goal of having someone pay her to watch every episode of Star Trek. Prior to compiling Quotable Star Trek, she spent three seasons as an assistant to the writer/producers on Star Trek: Deep Space Nine®. Born and raised in Los Angeles, she earned a Bachelor's Degree in Literature from the College of Creative Studies at the University of California at Santa Barbara. Later she became a staff writer at Casting Call magazine where she interviewed Armin Shimerman one month before getting the job at Deep Space Nine. Along with this book, she counts her proudest achievements as being her Mom's kid and her dog's dad.
