Prolific would be an understatement when describing author David Mack’s contribution to the Star Trek legacy. Mack has written 26 novels, 13 novellas and four comic books set in The Final Frontier, with his latest release, Star Trek Legacies, Book 2: Best Defense, as part of Pocket Books “Special 50th Anniversary Trilogy”. While most of the author’s Star Trek work has come over the last 15 years, his writing roots inspired by Gene Roddenberry’s vision of the future stretches back much further, with writing credits on Star Trek: Deep Space Nine episodes “It’s Only a Paper Moon” and “Starship Down”. Rich Schepis spoke with the author about his Star Trek fandom, his favorite novel and the franchise’s enduring legacy.

It’s counterpart, the four-letter word, love, hints at a more tender and nurturing experience.

“Each of us, at some time in our lives, turns to someone – a father, a brother, a god – and asks: Why am I here? What was I meant to be?” This scene from the Director’s Edition of Star Trek: The Motion Picture is meant to convey the existential crisis that V’Ger(and to a lesser extent Spock, Kirk, and Decker) is experiencing. The same can be said about the film itself, which was pulled in many different directions from the beginning and, due to numerous outside forces, struggled to find itself. That struggle is brought together in vivid detail in Return to Tomorrow, an oral history of the film from author Preston Neal Jones and publisher Creature Features.
