An in-depth, fun, pop culture analysis and history of all things Star Trek, surveying all the TV shows and movies. I learned a lot about Star Trek, even though I wouldn't consider myself the biggest fan. Highly recommended. ( )

A more in-depth book than I expected, although it retreads a lot of the same paths and thoughts of other books on Trek past and present.

The writer's style and excitement helped keep me engaged even in chapters I knew exactly what was ahead for me in reading.

Recommended unless you're such a Trek fan as to have read all the materials already and kept up to date on all fan and pro gossip… ( )

I'm a lifelong fan of Star Trek and I love this book--it's history, journalism, cultural and media criticism, and a personal memoir that is wonderful to read. I learned a lot (a delightful surprise!) and enjoyed it thoroughly. ( )

2022 book #41. 2022. I am a big Star Trek fan. This covers the 50+ years of Star Trek shows. I didn't expect to learn much new but I was wrong! Informative and entertaining. I wouldn't recommend to someone new to ST but if you're a fan, read it. ( )

Phasers on Stun!: How the Making (and Remaking) of Star Trek Changed the World by Ryan Britt traces the reincarnation of the famous franchise from the original show, to today’s spinoffs. Mr. Britt is a journalist and writer of fiction and non-fiction books.

Even though I’m not a superfan of the show Star Trek, I do follow it and enjoy the universe. I even read several books and memoirs, my favorite is Walter Koenig’s Beaming Up and Getting Off.

Phasers on Stun! by Ryan Britt touches every aspect of the TV shows and movies of this beloved franchise, from the original show to the spinoffs, to the remakes, and cartoons. I was even introduced to the wonderful Lower Decks which I had no idea existed, but after watching a few episodes I am now a fan.

Much of the information was new to me, but I am not a die-hard Star Trek fan. I think much of the information in it is nothing earth-shattering. However, I enjoyed Mr. Britt’s assessments and commentaries throughout.

This is a solid piece of writing the author makes his case in a clear manner. I especially enjoyed reading his views on the new shows, such as Picard and Discovery. I’ve heard mixed reviews on them, but as always, it’s nice to read a refreshing (for me at least) take on them.

The one thing I didn’t see was a discussion on the fact that Paramount plagiarized the idea of Deep Space Nine from Babylon 5. J. Michael Straczynski discusses this in his book Becoming Superman, but I thought it deserved a mention

Mr. Britt discusses these subjects with passion and humor. I have to admit I’ve never watched the new streaming shows. After all, how many streaming services can one have? However, the thought-provoking chapters about them did convince me that, when I do sign up, to give them a chance. ( )
