First, my apologies because english is not my native language. Said that, let's start.

In the first pages of this manual, you find out that the information of this book is thanks to a message received for a security military computer in the 70's. This message contain information about weapons, terminology, uniforms and other material that not supposed to be exist, so it was taken as a prank. In the next page, you can read a memo from the Star Fleet Command: Captain James T. Kirk and his first officer, Mr. Spock, must not be faulted for an error occurred in a transmission computer-to-computer during a gravitational space warp, which resulted in an unauthorized transmission to a military security computer in Earth. Sounds familiar? Oh yes.

A little note: when you see the index, your are going to note that some pages are missing. It's ok, it's supposed to be like that, because people in the 20th century should not know everything about the future.

This manual has a LOT of information, and is divided in four big items: the general section, command section, science section and support services section.

In the general section, you may find articles of the federation, treaties of peace, flags, seals, uniform color code, official type style, etc.

In the command section there is information of starfleet academy and armed forces, the starfleet headquarters, uniforms for male and female(there is images and patrons!), ranks and insignias. There is also information about the Enterprise (bridge,modules, stations, staterooms), the shuttlecraft and phasers (a lot of images!).

In the science section you can find information about computers, control consoles, tricorders, maps, medical section (medical tricorder, heartbeat reader, medical scanner, etc.

I use to own one of these when I was a kid and lost it traveling. I was great to find one at a reasonable price and in such great shape from Blue Door! Added to my Library and reminisce with the kids.

Technical manuals (TM) are not the most enthralling reads but for those who are interested in this sort of thing, as I was many years ago when this book came out and Star Trek (ST) was still on TV, then I would recommend this, or any ST TM. If you're interested in how things work on ST, and are a die-hard fan of TOS, then if this is still available I'd say get it.

Any trekker would want this book. A fun browsing kind of book. Not one with a story.

If person is original trekker from the late 60s, they may have this, or maybe they had it and gave it away. It will bring back memories.

For any trekker of 80s and and 90s, this a good book as "historical reference" for the latter Star Trek shows (ST Next Gen, Voyager, etc).

If person is new trekker, just getting into it from recently released new Star Trek movies, well ,,, this still is a good star trek "historical" book.

Was excited to get this for my collection. It was in a bit rougher shape than was in the sellers description. Non-the-less, my children and I enjoy exploring the original Star Trek universe with this as one of our guides.
