All hail classic Trek! We're loving the new JJ Abram's Star Trek movie, which has beamed Kirk and Spock back into the centre of the sci-fi stage. It's given us an itch to rewatch the original series again. Long-time SFX contributor Ed Gross has written a shuttle-load of articles about the original 1966-1969 series over the last few decades, and he's now collecting them together in a book called Trek Classic: The Untold Making Of The Original Series. Catchy, no?
Ed's exclusively given us a chapter from his book for you to read here on the site - it's one of the later sections dealing with the third and final season of the show, and the decisions that brought it to its close.
