Can you identify the Source of these Found Star Trek Tricorder Photos?

Hi kids! Your pal IseeRobots here again. Last week I picked up a book at The Goodwill, a nice copy of Skeleton Crew by Stephen King if you are interested but what’s really interesting is that inside the book was this cool picture of a Tricorder and a Communicator from my favorite show of all the times Star Trek! (Did I really have to tell you what show they came from? I kind of think you already know but better safe than sorry)

I hope that you like it as much as I did. I think that I probably do like it more than you do but I’m the one that got surprised by it so I have that going in my direction. Anyhow, if anyone out there has an idea where it came from let me know. I’d love to find out. The page is normal paperback size and has that normal quality paperback paper. Thanks and have a good one.

  1. Pretty sure those photos originally appeared in Stephen Whitfield’s “The Making of Star Trek,” which for some of us was sort of a Bible in the late ’60s and early ’70s.

  2. ProtoVulcan says:

    ‘The Making of Star a Trek’ by Stephen E. Whitfield.
    If that is not an exact match, look at ‘The World of Star Trek’ by David Gerrold.
    It’s definitely one of the two.
