(written from a Production point of view)
Star Trek: The Devil in the Dark was an adaptation of stills taken from the Star Trek: The Original Series first season episode "The Devil in the Dark" into a photonovel, and the ninth release in the series. Aside from an episode cast list, the book also included excerpts from reader's letters, a trivia quiz, and a glossary.
Like the previous two outings in the series, no internationally translated edition is known to exist.
- From the back cover
- Emergency!!! Kirk and Spock respond to a distress call signal! An alien monster is threatening lives on Janus VI!!!
- The authentic re-creation of a fateful voyage of the starship Enterprise… Over 300 action photographs from the episode The Devil in the Dark in the television series created by Gene Roddenberry.
- Exports to the UK had the British prices – either 95p or £1.25/1.50 – stamped on the back cover.
- A very similar but differently edited 1974 German serialized version had actually predated the Bantam edition, published in the television magazine Gong as Der Teufel im Dunkel.
