TVC 548.2: Star Trek historian and Gene Roddenberry historian Marc Cushman discuss why why production of Star Trek: The Motion Picture began before the script was even finished; why the expensive special effects nearly sank the film; and the brief yet strange furor involving Roddenberry, NBC, and the short-lived sci-fi parody Quark. All three volumes of These Are the Voyages: Gene Roddenberry and Star Trek in the 1970s are available through Jacobs Brown Media Group.
