(written from a Production point of view)
Star Trek FAQ 2.0, subtitled Everything Left to Know About the Next Generation, the Movies, and Beyond, is an upcoming unofficial reference book written by Mark Clark.

- In the 1980s and '90s, Star Trek rose from the ash heap of network cancellation and soared to the peak of its popularity with a series of blockbuster feature films and the smash sequel series Star Trek: The Next Generation. Star Trek FAQ 2.0 picks up where the original Star Trek FAQ left off, chronicling the historic comeback of the "failed" series and its emergence as a pop culture touchstone. The book provides accounts of the production of every Star Trek movie (including creator Gene Roddenberry's struggle to retain control of the franchise) and every episode of The Next Generation (and the conflicts that roiled its writing staff). It also offers profiles of the actors, directors, writers, producers, and technicians whose excellence fueled the franchise's success, and explores often overlooked aspects of the Star Trek phenomenon, including unofficial, fan-made productions. Star Trek FAQ 2.0 represents the final frontier of Trek scholarship.
