From the Publisher

From the founding of the Federation, to Zefram Cochrane's invention of warp drive, to James T. Kirk's early days in Starfleet AcademyTM, to the voyages of the Starship EnterpriseTM under Captain Jean-Luc Picard, to the newest adventures of the U.S.S. VoyagerTM, this book provides a comprehensive look at Star Trek's incredible history. The Star Trek Chronology documents every important event from every Star Trek episode and film, and includes both stardates and Earth calendar dates.

An indispensible guide for Star Trek enthusiasts and writers alike, the Star Trek Chronology has been exhaustively researched and brought up to date by Star Trek production staff members Michael Okuda and Denise Okuda, and includes little-known "inside" information and trivia about the making of the hugely successful television shows and films.

Profusely illustrated with more than 1,000 color photos - many never before printed anywhere - this is the one book that imparts every chapter in the exciting Star Trek saga. The Star Trek Chronology is an incredible journey through time and the future of Star Trek!

Now, completely revised and updated - it even includes information from the new Star Trek: First ContactTM movie!

This book is a must have for any serious Star Trek fan.
Michael J. Tresca
If you're like me the one thing that made watching Star Trek the original series puzzling was trying to figure out just when all this stuff was supposed to take place.

Format: Paperback
This book is a must have for any serious Star Trek fan. It details the time-line of the often confusing Star Trek universe in careful academic detail, yet the narrative is entertaining enough to make it readable from cover to cover. The pictures are rife throughout the book and intelligently placed (a big gripe of mine is when people show you pictures of things you don't care to see, or put pictures far away from the text referring to them), and there are plenty of discussions about character designs, star ships, and other subtle nuances and contradictions that a book of this depth inevitably stumbles across. Buy it...it will make the Star Trek universe a bit more comprehensible...and a lot more enjoyable.

Format: Paperback
A great reference that starts several billion years B.C. to about one thousand A.D. This book has up to Star Trek: Next Generation First Contact, Deep Space Nine Season Four, and Voyager Season Two. One favorite section of mine is the alternate universes section with ALL of the alternate universes up to date. Now I'm waiting for an revised edition...

As it says in the introduction, there are many contradictions and empty spaces in this history, but if there's a need to understand the way Star Trek works, it's an indispensable reference book. Also for writers who want to create between the time lines listed in the book, it is a very well organized tool, and when possible, it reveals the contradictions or problems found by the authors in conjunction with the original writers, so you can fill in the blanks of the history or propose new theories. Well, it's a must have for those REAL Star Trek fans!!!
P.D.: if you want a perfect book, please read the I-Ching...

Format: Paperback
Everything I need to know about Star Trek is in this amazing book. The only problem I have with it is that I bought it when Star Trek Deep Space Nine was ending it's fourth season, and in the book, it goes up to the end of it's fourth season. I had no idea what was happening for two years! Oh well, now I know. Anyway, this book really helped me to understand the world of Star Trek, and the amazing thing is, that everything in this book has followed history so far! Anyway, I reccommend this book to any true Star Trek fans!

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By A Customer on December 9, 1996
Format: Paperback
This revised 342 page book has over 1000 pitures! There are some story elements from FUTURE'S END (VOYAGER), FIRST CONTACT, FLASHBACK (VOYAGER), & TRIALS AND TRIBBLE-ATIONS (DS9). This book has appendixes for all of the main characters (from all of the shows). There are extensive notes on Starfleet and the Starships Enterprise, science and technology, planets and societies, alternate timelines, and stardates.
Here's what's wrong with the book. Unfortunately, other than YESTERYEAR, there's no information about the cartoons. I've found several typeos, mainly with the captions. The biggest printing error in this book is in the header for DS9 (year 4), and VOYAGER (year 2). The printed year is 2371, but it's supposed to be 2372. Due to the deadline for this book, the year Captain Braxton (VOYAGER'S FUTURE'S END) crashed on earth (1967) hadn't yet been established. Similarly, Kang's 23rd century picture (FLASHBACK) isn't in the book. Finally, the recent tribble (DS9) story hadn't yet been titled. Otherwise, it's a great book. Would someone please
e-mail these suggestions about the revisions to pocket books, so that they may revise the book for another printing?

Reading this book allowed me, a Star Trek fan, not only to answer questions about various topics related to Star Trek history, but to review current events that have made alot of episodes possible

Format: Paperback
The authors of this book certainly had a daunting task, namely to put all of the events in Star Trek: The Original Series, the first six Star Trek feature films and the first five years of Star Trek: The Next Generation in chronological order. Some of the events are mentioned only on passing in episodes, yet they have managed to tie all of it together into a surprisingly coherent whole.
There are of course places where a consistent chronology is just not possible, and those situations are identified as such. Nevertheless, if you are a fan of Star Trek and are interested in what happened when, then this is the book for you.

I received this book as a Christmas present when I was younger but lost it during one of my many moves during my enlistment. Finding it again brings back so many memories, can't wait to hold it in my hands again! By the way, does anyone remember a series of Star Trek paperbacks which covered the Kzinti Wars, first contact with the Romulans, and the Federation attack on the first Klingon spacestation? I read the entire series in middle school but I haven't been able to find them anywhere else.
