The introduction asks a rather bold question:
Why hasn't anyone thought of it? Well... people have? I mean, the Concordance covered TAS as well as TOS, back in 1976, and the Star Trek Encyclopedia, first published in 1994 (over a year before this book) covered TNG and what came before. Those books had a different focus, sure, but they seem to fit the bill, all the same. And it's not like this book is all that complete, either:
It's not only TAS that is shortchanged--the entry for The Return of the Archons, for example, is also just credits and summary. And not all those episodes which do have quotes from interviews have anything useful to say--many of the quotes have little more substance than "we sure did our best on those things, yep". The bulk of episodes have something worthwhile, though.
