1977 article "The Return of Star Trek"

From the low-rent magazine "Space Wars" comes this October 1977 article on the return of Trek. Just goes to show that I bought anything related to Trek back in those days, eager as i was for the slightest morsel of new info. Not that this article contained any; but I bought it anyway. The article is only titled on the index page.

Bonus: Below, a page from the book "Charting The Undiscovered Country: The Making of Trek VI."

I think a large part of the Star Trek phenomenon is the mythology about how the show went away and the fans never forgot that, and keep telling themselves the story over and over again. Thankfully, it did return, but that never seems to stop us from remembering how that first decade went.

Glad to see you're back, Frederick! You're right, the article said nothing, but even that was pretty good for 1977! Interesting how the caption misidentifies Yoeman Rand as Nurse Chapel and the breakout box gives Kirk's middle initial as "D"!
