"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.

Nice retrospective of Meyer's career
This is a great look inside a director's and writer's mind. Meyer's eloquent style comes out in humorous anecdotes and descriptions of the movies he's worked on. Not a ton of inside Star Trek knowledge, but still enough for good reading.
