Treasure of the Rubbermaids 2: The Wrath of Harlan Ellison

The on-going discoveries of priceless books and comics found in a stack of Rubbermaid containers previously stored and forgotten at my parent’s house and untouched for almost 20 years. Thanks to my father dumping themback on me, I now spend my spare time unearthing lost treasures from their plastic depths.

This one really takes me back.Published in 1977, this ‘Fotonovel’ was a nifty gimmick that I read almost to tatters as a kid.Essentially, they took still pictures from original Star Trek episodes and added the dialogue and narrations like a comic book.This was two years before the first movie was released and long before the spin-off series started, and one assumes that fans were desperate for any form of Star Trek they could get.

Reading this as a 41 year old adult who’s spent more time than he’s comfortable admitting watching movies and various versions of the show, it’s odd to realize how much enjoyment I got from this simple book as a kid.I got a bonus in that it’s probably one of the single best Star Trek episodes from a story by Harlan Ellison.

While investigating a disturbance in time itself while orbiting a deserted planet, Dr. McCoy accidentally injects himself with a powerful drug while treating an injured crewman.McCoy freaks out and beams down to the planet. Kirk and a landing party finally catch him in the ruins of a city, and they also find the Guardian of Forever, a sentient time portal.McCoy breaks free and goes into the past, instantly changing history so that the Enterprise disappears from orbit.

Kirk and Spock follow through the portal, ending up in New York during the Great Depression.While trying to find McCoy, they meet Alexis Carrington…Er…I mean, Edith Keeler, a social worker with a strong vision of a peaceful future.Kirk falls hard for her (big surprise), but he’ll face a terrible choice when Spock learns that Edith is the key to what McCoy changes.

The funniest thing about this is that it has a short interview with Ellison as an intro.Ellison has complained for years about how they changed his original draft of the story which included an Enterprise crew member dealing drugs.The prickly Ellison bitches about this again in a promotional interview for a book aimed primarily at kids.Apparently he’s been nursing that grudge for some time.It’s good to know that some things never change.

The only bad thing about finding this is that I apparently went crazy in my youth and drew on the cover with a pen and added beards and eyebrows to several crew pictures.This must have been done before I developed my iron-clad rule about never writing in books.I need to find the Guardian of Forever so I can go back into the past and stop my younger self from being a book defacing dumb-ass.
