He said that he will take it when he has various appointments because it'll make the time fly by.

I couldn't answer the questions correctly, but I'm not as much of a Trekkie as most.

I just received this a couple of days ago and I love it! The only thing is that I have found some questions that they have wrong answers to. So far, I'm about 300 questions into it and have found 3. First, one of the questions asked which character from the original series made a cameo in the premiere of Star Trek: The Next Generation. They have Spock as the answer. The correct answer is McCoy. He played a very old Admiral. Secondly, a question asked who Chief O'Brien married. The correct answer is Keiko. Lastly, Ambassador Nanclus in Star Trek 6 was a Romulan Ambassador. They say he was a Telerite. I hope there aren't many more mistakes. Even with these, I still love it and it will keep me busy when I am bored. I like it better than sitting on the computer for hours on end.

I received this book for Christmas. I'd looked at it a few times in stores, thought it had the potential to be kind of interesting, but never felt a great need to pick it up. (Mainly because, personally, I never cared for Voyager or Enterprise, and this book is rather inclusive in that it contains questions related to all of the Treks. Objectively, a plus, but for me that ment there were questions I would never know.) But hey, I got it for Christmas! Free stuff is good!

Just now, I finally started playing with it. I started with Question 1 and thought I'd work my way through. I was doing pretty good... and then I got to Question 46. Oh, that's an easy one! I select the correct answer... and then hear, for the first time, the buzz telling me I am wrong.

What? I can't be. Did I hit the wrong button? I select question 46 again, and again press the button for the correct answer. Again, buzz! I toss aside the book in frustration.

What is this now? I am POSITIVE that my answer is correct... I can't be wrong! Can I?

To the internet I go, and a quick search later I discover a forum somewhere where people are, indeed, complaining about this very issue. There is a long list of questions that they say have incorrect answers provided, and the very first one on their list is, indeed, #46. In all, they estimate approximately 3% of the questions in this book have incorrect answers provided. 3% may not seem like a lot, but out of 2,500 questions that would make for 75 wrong ones. On top of that, there was also provided a list of questions with misleading wording or where more then one of the answers provided could technically be correct. Not quite as heinous as flat out wrong answers, but still potentially quite annoying.

interesting to say the least with many questions so obscure even doing research is fascinatingly worth it when buying this book since many of the questions come from the shows itself-definitely worth purchasing!!

This product is very well presented and a great concept. As noted by another reviewer, however, some of the answers are incorrect. I have found 5 so far where the answer given is most definitely incorrect. One that jumps to mind is a question about Doctor Crusher in TNG disliking the nickname "Bones". While I'm sure she probably would not have liked that nickname, she was NEVER called that name throughout the series(the correct answer of course is "The Dancing Doctor"). There are others, but to be fair, I have answered approx 2000 questions so far, so that is not a bad strike rate. I would still reccommend this to anyone who is a fan or just wants to know more, about the Trek universe.

"Obsessed with Star Trek" is a fun book with a glaringly unacceptable flaw.

The trivia questions contained within are satisfying, though they range from the embarrassingly easy ("What is Dr. McCoy's first name?") to the implausibly hard ("What type radiation did Phlox use on himself to destroy the Borg nanoprobes?").

The deal-breaking drawback to this book is that the answers to the questions are not contained within it. The electronic component is the key to the answers, and what happens when that component inevitably breaks down (as mine did in shipping)? The alpha quadrant will be awash in useless books full of questions.

Okay book...

It's fun, it's easy to use, and a nice quality book...

BUT be forewarned, there are actual errors in the book!!! In the voyager section I have found 3 alone.

I started there because it's my fave and have been sad to see stupid mistakes and errors. Example. Who played Q's son in "Q2" the answer should be Keegan de Lanci, John's son... But I was told by the book that it was John de Lanci.... Or another question asked about a title of Neelix's daily news report... Then gives crewmen's names for possible answers... :( so apparently according to Obsessed with Star Teek, Neelix named his morning show "joe Carey" ..... 0.o. Let's just forget that it started out as "a briefing with Neelix" before being call "good morning, Voyager."

Over all it's a fun book, but hard core Trekkies may need to keep the Star Trek encyclopedia near-by to prove you are right and the books wrong when quizzing with friends....
