Biography

"Star Trek" debuted in 1966 and ran to 79 episodes; it started with low ratings, but the support of its audience and science fiction writers prevented its cancellation; the show was launched by Gene Roddenberry with a format similar to that of "Wagon Train," a weekly television program about pioneers traveling westward; over time Roddenberry and "Star Trek" acquired a following of loyal fans, known as "Trekkies"; "Star Trek" reruns in the late 1970s prompted the continued popularity of the series; Paramount Pictures produced several "Star Trek" movies starring the original television series cast; Roddenberry created and became executive producer for another television series called "Star Trek : The Next Generation," which was set seventy-eight years after the final "Star Trek" episode.
Justman was born in 1926; attended UC Los Angeles (1946-48); began his career in 1950 on independent films and became an asst. director in 1953; affiliated with Herb Solow and Gene Roddenberry and was hired as the asst. director on "The Cage," the first "Star Trek" pilot (1964); was assoc. producer for the series and co-producer for "Star Trek"'s final season; worked with Roddenberry to help create and produce "Star Trek : the Next Generation" (1986).

Collection consists of original "Star Trek" scripts. Scripts include production materials such as shooting schedules, cast lists, title sheets, special photographic effects lists, and credits.
