Exploring Deep Space and Beyond


Welcome to the edge of the final frontier: deep space, where only man's space stations protect the galaxy.
With 16 pages of full color photographs!
Exploring Deep Space... And Beyond is the first comprehensive unofficial guide to the new wave in science fiction television. Chronicling the making of television’s most important genre shows located on the outskirts of explored space, Exploring Deep Space begins by looking at the history of space stations in fact and fiction, followed by an in depth analysis of the creation of Deep Space Nine, the hit syndicated television series from Paramount Pictures.
Also lying on the fringes of the final frontier are Warner Bros.' Babylon 5, a space station on which the five warring intergalactic federations come together in search of peace; and CBS' Space Rangers, an ambitious action/adventure set in the cosmos from the creative team behind Backdraft and Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves.
Featured in this volume are:
  • Deep Space Nine creators Rick Berman and Michael Piller
  • Babylon 5 creator J. Michael Straczynski
  • Space Rangers creator Pen Densham
  • The cast of Deep Space Nine, including Avery Brooks, Rene Auberjonois, and Terry Farrell
  • Space Rangers' Captain Jeff Kaake
  • And many more
Exploring Deep Space... And Beyond is your roadmap to the future.
