With Star Trek: Discovery picking up on another season soon, it’s good to look back into the older Star Trek shows that we hold near and dear, and Star Trek: Lost Scenes is a great way of enjoying it!
This new book published by Titan Books looks into the deleted and ‘lost’ scenes of Star Trek the original series featuring none other than William Shatner among his other famous cast members. What to note about this book is that it covers a lot of material very quickly, giving photos and quick blurbs about the specific episode in the series.

Star Trek: The Lost Scenes has many episodes that’s covered, and they can all be listed below:
Behind the Scenes
Star Trek has some interesting behind the scenes information, and some of it goes into the creation of the ships such as Enterprise and how they were created as physical miniatures. There are also of course remastered changes that can be seen from the original footage to the changed.
One of the more interesting things for any show are the deleted scenes that are revealed. This reigns true for both episodes and movies, as deleted scenes can play a big role in telling a larger story, or even essential parts that had to be cut due to time constraints.
Lastly in Star Trek: The Lost Scenes we find bloopers, which are generally funny out-takes for shows where the actors either mess up their lines or can’t control their laughter. It’s no different for Star Trek, where even Shatner himself is found making a few silly faces.
I personally enjoyed looking through Star Trek: The Lost Scenes and gaining new information on the iconic series. It is a foundation for current science fiction, and remakes of the show are ongoing, and even in new movies. The new information shown in the book gives fans more to live for from the original series, and I think any Trekkie would enjoy having this in their collection.
