Regarded by many as the most thorough account of the production of Star Trek, Marc Cushman's three volumes of These are the Voyages chronicle every aspect of the difficulties behind the cameras for Gene Roddenberry and the other contributors to the show. Now, Marc has written another book on a production that is in many was an older sibling to Star Trek, Irwin Allen's Lost in Space. Launching a full year prior, in 1965, this show had many of the same difficulties as Star Trek did, including the production of a pilot episode that was later edited into other episodes.

In this episode of Melodic Treks, host Brandon-Shea Mutala is joined by Marc Cushman, author of These are the Voyages, to discuss his new book, Irwin Allen's Lost In Space, writing the episode "Sarek," and his five favorite Star Trek scores.
