Synopses & Reviews
"Essential reading for any Star Trek and movie fan."
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.
"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.
