Go behind the scenes of 'Star Trek' at Warren Newport Library
"Star Trek" fans are invited to enjoy a free, trivia-filled presentation, "The History of Star Trek: From Concept to Screen," at 2 p.m. on Saturday, May 18, at Warren Newport Library, 224 N. O'Plaine Road, Gurnee.
The presenters, College of Lake County sociology instructors John and Maria Jose Tenuto, used "Star Trek" movie director Nicholas Meyer's idea that "art thrives on limitations" as a case study for researching the making of the famous 1967 episode, "Space Seed," starring Ricardo Montalban as the villain Khan.
In March, this presentation drew an overflow crowd to the Aspen Drive Library in Vernon Hills. The program is free, but registration is required at www.wnpl.info.
Using rare materials from the archives of UCLA and the University of Iowa, the Tenutos obtained permission to gather all the production information, memos and versions of scripts together, and have unearthed previously unknown information about the making of the episode.
The presentation highlights the special attention that writers and special effects artists made to producing an enduring legacy despite budgetary, technological, cultural and other production limitations.
The presentation will include rare behind-the-scenes photos and a history of the "Star Trek" TV show and movies.
