The above means, if you still need a gift or two for your Trek giftee list, GET THIS. Especially, of course, if your own name is on that list.
Look, as you regular readers and viewers will know, and as I promised back in Post #1... TREKLAND is all about a personal take on the daily diet of Trek news you can get everywhere—either my own POV, or someone's else's.
And this gets pretty personal.
But truth is, I'm jealous because TNG 365 gets to be everything I had hoped the TNG Companion could have been, and I had initially planned for, as the first reference book of the "modern" Trek era: lots of behind-the-scenes pics to go with the tale-telling—and in COLOR. Some images here are from studio vaults we barely got to use over the years in magazines... And some are even better: from the files of all the series' Treklanders who were smart enough to snap their own work in progress (or those around them). Like that one of mine. Until the digital revolution revamped the landscape, your only shot was to catch it and its brethren at a cool con show. (Or break into my house).
It also means that, even with the great documentary being assembled for the TNG remastering on Blu-ray, a book still holds far more Trek treasure than video, in many ways. But thanks for the cpntinued 25th anniversary hoo-haw, nonetheless.
I guess what I'm saying is that, obviously, TNG 365 is the perfect companion to your TNG Companion (ahem).
If you didn't think to gift it by now, from your local well-stocked bookseller or even a tad late via online, don't forget it during the inevitable gift-swapalooza coming up post-holiday Dec. 26. Or anytime. (It's on Kindle, too.) All this and about 18 bucks. In hardback!
