STAR TREK is one of the world''s most popular and enduring science fiction franchises, spanning decades'' worth of TV, film, comics, books and more. This book - originally published just as DEEP SPACE NINE was first being produced - analyses the rebirth and renaissance of the series in the nineteen eighties and nineties.
Along with masses of factual information - plot synopses, cast and crew and, uniquely, British transmission dates - this Programme Guide casts a gently critical eye over the series'' continuity (and lack of it) and lingers over the moments of humour (intentional and otherwise).
In sum, this is a light-hearted, detailed and affectionate overview of the revitalised version of the classic STAR TREK. Please note that it has not been updated since its original publication.
British author Titchmarsh (Rosie) brings the art world alive in this engaging romantic drama. In 2007, James "Jamie" Ballantyne reconnects with childhood chum and flame, Artemis "Missy" King, who resurfaces in the showroom of Jamie's auction house in Bath to bid on a painting on behalf of her grandfather. The reunited couple discover that a set of paintings by Sir Alfred James Munnings, owned by Missy's grandfather (himself owner of an established fine art gallery), are fakes. Their investigation reveals a long thread of family secrets and the source of the feud between their two families, revelations that cause the couple to split up. Titchmarsh alternates between the present and the story of Jamie's grandfather, Harry Ballantyne, and Missy's grandmother, Eleanor King, who met as art students at Oxford. The effect is nostalgic and builds anticipation and curiosity in the history of the two families, including the story behind the lost love of their grandparents.
