Without doubt, this is the most important Trek publication since the Encyclopedia 1st came out.
This book features maps of the stars we have heard so much about in Trek, and a lot of others we've never heard of before.
There's a lot to the book, so I'll try to break it down:
The first section is sort of a galactic overview, showing overall maps (which are very interesting, as we see the extent of the Borg transwarp conduits, Vaawaur subspace tunnels and the Hirogen communications array. It then launches into a description of how the galaxy is broken down, and how the 'sector' is dervied. That little explanation is one of the best parts of the book.
We then see a 3D map (the only 3D map in the book) of the 4 sectors surrounding Sol, sectors that feature the major homeworlds such as Earth, Vulcan, Andor, Tellar and others.
The book then describes the classes for both stars and planets, both of which are very interesting and are based on real astrophysics, very well done indeed.
The book then goes on to show the various quadrants. The first quadrant shown in the Alpha Quadrant, and, believe it or not, this is one of the smaller sections in the book. Mandel shows the 'left' of the Federation, where the Cardassians, Breen, Ferengi and various others thrive. While it is a good map, I feel it was incomplete. I was looking forward to a detailed map of the Dominion War, yet Mandel fails to do that, and only designates a tiny area near Bajor as having been the battleground. Also, several important locations from the war are missing, such as: the Tyra system, Starbase 257, not to mention the site of the battle from 'Sacrifice of Angels'.

When one deals with as potentially complicated (and sometimes contradictory) a thing as the "geography" of the galaxy as described by the various Star Trek series and films, it's always a challenge to get a good understanding of just what's going on. To lay it out in a set of charts is even more of a challenge.
Geoff Mandel has met this challenge, and done it very, very well. While this new book is a very different way of looking at Star Trek's known space than the previous seminal publication on the topic--Bantam's Star Trek Maps, published over two decades ago--Mr. Mandel does the job excellently, bringing an even greater sense of verisimilitude and realism to the topic. When one is done reading this book, one can believe in the galaxy shown here, and believe that it could be the world that Star Trek's starships and stations and people inhabit.
Visually, this book is a treat, and it's filled with details that will keep the reader coming back to it again and again. A few small errors--a typo here, an erroneous date there--do not detract significantly from the overall rich tapestry of pictures and maps and the sheer volume of fascinating information contained within this book. Indeed, if there's one major negative to this book, it's that it's simply not enough. I wanted more, more starmaps, more planetary system details, more of all the things that are going to make this book an important part of my collection. I hope Pocket Books can be encouraged to do another edition, and expand it.
As it is, though, I still highly recommend _Star Charts_. It's a huge amount of fun, and is absolutely worth your time and money. Buy it!

If you're a fan of any of the Star Trek series, you must pick up this book! See the route Archer's NX-01 has taken... find out where the Bajoran Wormhole opens up at... the locations of many of Trek's most know, and not known systems!
Find out how sectors are work, and the galaxy is divided up... and how the Enterprise took Klang home in a few days, even though Klingon space is 100s of light years away from Earth.
What route did Voyager take to get back to Alpha Quadrant? It's here in thsi book!
The book is filled with detailed maps of the Star Trek galxy, and four posters that, when combined, represent a detailed map of Federation Space.
So pick this book up, and pepare to set course for any where your heart desires!

Star Trek fans have wondered for years where the Cardassian Union is in relationship to the Ferengi Alliance, or how large the Neutral Zone is between the United Federation of Planets and the Romulan Star Empire. This book answers those questions in a full-color, highly-stylized illustrative manner.
The atlas is in wonderful detail and the illustrations are in vibrant colors. I really liked the explanations of all of the classes of planets (Class M, Class K, etc.) as well as an explanation of the different stars.
The book even goes so far as to explain the coordinate system that Star Fleet uses to designate sectors, i.e. the difference between sector 001 and Sector 21505 et al.
Finally, a book that shows the geography of Star Trek and an arranged view of the Federation. This book should go on your bookshelf right along with "The Star Trek Encyclopedia", "Star Trek Chronology", "Star Trek: The Next Generation Technical Manual", and "Deep Space Nine: Tecnical Manual" to complete any true fan's reference library.
