Publisher's Summary

The sequel to the best-selling Star Trek Memories, documenting in deliciously lurid and candid detail all the behind-the-scenes shenanigans in the making of the six Star Trek movies, with on-the-scene reporting from the set of the seventh in which Kirk dies!Star Trek Movie Memories recounts all the chaos, creative turmoil, backstage politics, power plays, and production nightmares that permeated every one of the six Star Trek movies, including the accumulated grudges that haven't yet mellowed with the passage of time. And the stories... Nicholas Meyer writing the script for Star Trek II in 12 days... Kirstie Alley doing her Leonard Nimoy imitation in an audition... How Kirk's love interest in Star Trek IV began as a role for Eddie Murphy... and you can imagine the rest (or maybe not).
With stories and quotes from the principles that have never before been uttered in public, this will deliver a truly unprecedented behind-the-scenes view of the Trek films that will amaze even the most avid Trekker.

Not as many

I bought this as a change of pace and it was definitely interesting, but I get the feeling that most of it is someone else's work, with Shatner adding a little color. It's primarily a "production history", rather than a personal memoir, with rather few personal recollections, and very few recoutings of personal interactions between Shatner and those on set. If you're a Star Trek or movie fan, its interesting to hear about what it took to get the movies made - in the boardroom, on the set and elsewhere, but I think Shatner held back on some of the best material.

Shatner himself is surprisingly self-deprecating (given his reputation), and he reads along at a brisk pace. Its hard to tell sometimes if this is because the sound engineer upped the pace, Shatner himself wanted to keep the listener engaged, or if he was just knocking it out as quickly as he could.

Nevertheless, a pretty good listen. I can't help but to listen to Star Trek Memories now to see if the lack of personal recollection here is made up for there.

Not As Good As The First Book

I enjoyed it, probably way more than I should have to be honest. There's still a lot of great stuff and stories in there about our beloved Star Trek. The worst part of it was that Shatner spends a seemingly endless amount of time talking about his gawd-awful Star Trek V movie "Final Frontier". Ewww that movie stunk, and he doesn't seem to acknowledge that. Anyway, if you want to read/hear about the making of possibly the all-time worst Star Trek movie, and a lot of other stuff, this is your book.

Being a trekker...

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, to my trekker friends.

What did you like best about this story?

Being a trekker I found it very pleasant to listen about all Star Trek movies behind the scenes stories. It's funny, and it's entertaining. It's for trekkers though. I just think Bill Shatner's reading was like "I should finish this reading as soon as possible". I don't feel he's put his soul in it. Besides that, I've enjoyed.
