    In the 1970s, long before VCRs were a standard thing in most homes, Bantam Books in conjunction with Mandala Productions gave Star Trek fans the chance to relive some of the shows episodes through series of twelve fotonovels These books were essentially proto types of the graphic novels so prevalent today that re tell classic stories and used actual film stills from the show with word bubbles and explanatory text to accompany the photos I found my first few in the early days of book collecting In the 1970s, long before VCRs were a standard thing in most homes, Bantam Books in conjunction with Mandala Productions gave Star Trek fans the chance to relive some of the shows episodes through series of twelve fotonovels These books were essentially proto types of the graphic novels so prevalent today that re tell classic stories and used actual film stills from the show with word bubbles and explanatory text to accompany the photos I found my first few in the early days of book collecting and was finally able to complete the collection in 2012 when my husband and I came across a treasure trove at my now favorite used book store in Illinois I recently decided to catch up on reading those that I had never gotten to.Amok Time Fotonovel 12 is one of the gold standard episodes in Star Trek It gave fans information about the home world of one of their favorite characters revealing customs and philosophy of Vulcan life It marked the first use of the Vulcan salute and salutation Live Long and Prosper The story also highlighted the deep friendship and loyalty among Kirk, Spock, and McCoy When T Pau, the leader of Spock s family and, incidentally, all of Vulcan challenges Spock s inclusion of outworlders in Vulcan ritual, she asks him how he will pledge their behavior And he responds, With my life He is willing to sacrifice just as Kirk has been willing to sacrifice his career in Starfleet by disobeying orders to bring Spock to Vulcanand ultimately is willing to risk his life in the Vulcan mating challenge to the death to help his friend This was first posted on my blog My Reader s Block Please requested permission before reposting

    Once upon a time the original Star trek TV series was on reruns, and in that pre video age a young fan like myself had to watch carefully and remember the show This is a Fotonovel of one the best episodesand I purchased it brand new back in 1978 All the major dialogue is there, along with narration and some imagined internal dialogue.

    In the days before the internet a book like this was precious to a fan.I remember waiting impatiently for each of the photo novels to come out.

    Another clever use of stills from the TV series combined with conversation narrative balloons to create a graphic novel of an original Classic Star Trek episode.
