The Tragic End Of Star Trek – The Original Series By Rick Austin

The original series of Star Trek ended with a whimper, not a bang. Ratings were always a problem, and the series only survived as long as it did by making a good show that developed a fan base that embarked on a letter-writing campaign to keep it going. When it rolled around to the third season, the network had pretty much given up on it, slashed the budget, and moved it to a lousy timeslot. Gene Roddenberry walked out, the storylines...
