Format: Paperback
A Star-Trek cookbook narrated by Neelix the Chef was a nice idea, but poor editing, and not enough supervision by people who know Star Trek characters, have made this book a mess.
First, some of the recipes themselves are poorly written and edited. For example, the Peptide Cake recipe does not specify the pan size. (The recipe mentions a "sheet-cake pan," the standard size of which is too large for the recipe.) The recipe itself is a little strange, as it is a sponge cake that contains many egg yolks but *no* egg whites. Since I don't know what the writers were trying to achieve, I can't say for sure that they made a mistake, but I suspect that the egg whites were left out by accident. There are other recipes for which I suspect ingredients are missing as well. This would not surprise me, due to the number of typos that are scattered throughout the text.
Second, some of the recipes are inconsistent with the book's narration, as well as with information from the tv shows. For example, after having confirmed that "raktajino" is a beverage similar to strong coffee (and having printed a recipe for making raktajino out of coffee beans,) "Neelix" offers a recipe for raktajino cake that contains no coffee! In another example, "Neelix" says that "parthos" can be made out of brussels sprouts. Any one who has seen "The Next Generation" knows that parthos looks nothing like brussels sprouts, and everything like bright green spinach. Finally, while the book gives a reasonable recipe for "Klingon blood pie," (basically a steak and kidney pie,) there is also a version, called a "favorite" of a Klingon character, that is really a sweet cherry pie.

Format: Paperback
It's a shame that this book has been labeled and endorsed by the Star Trek franchise as their official cookbook, because it's been obviously written by people who don't understand and didn't bother to check the background information given on most foods and beverages presented in any of the Star Trek movies and the first four TV series (Original series, Next Generation, Deep Space Nine and Voyager).
This book's very confusing format is divided into six main sections that list the recipes according to the character's likes and dislikes based, by the way, on very doubtful assertions, which include many inaccurate quotes and anecdotes that conveniently make many Star Trek unrelated dishes seem related to the series. This means that in order to find a Strawberries and Cream recipe, you must look for it among the recipes listed as Capt. Janeway's favorites in the Voyager section.
The book also includes some dish variations that go way beyond just making a few adjustments to the recipes. For example, there is a recipe for a Klingon Blood Pie, traditionally a baked roast and veal kidneys pie, which transforms it into a sweet cranberry pie.
Most of the recipes are poorly written and badly edited, and lack specific information, giving only general instructions and details. Also, the authors have avoided including any recipe containing alcohol, altogether ignoring the liquors and spirits often showcased in the Star Trek universe.
The book's visual style is also a minus, as it doesn't include a single color photograph of a finished dish, only containing black & white pictures (mostly of crew members) taken directly from the shows. But the book's worst feature is the author's patronizing and annoying writing style.

26 of 32 people found the following review helpful By Desmond R.G. Underwood Frederick IV on December 20, 2001
Format: Paperback
With the colorful nature of Star Trek culinary arts, one would expect this guide to the cuisine of the cosmos to be similarly entertaining. On the contrary, nearly everything about the book is dull, uninteresting and uninformative. For the most part, the recipes are poorly laid out, and only the most general details and instructions given for the preparation of the food. The book format of the book is similarly lacking, being wholly unnatractive and, at times, mildly confusing. The tone adopted by the writers is also annoying, being for the most part patronizing to the reader. All in all, this book is a very poor effort at a subject very dear to the hearts of Trekkies that simply deserves better.

I got this book when I was around 10 or 11 & I loved it. However, as I got older the novelty wore off. This book will make a good Christmas gift for any Star Trek fan under 13 but not for people any older than that. I remember cooking stuff from this book with my Grandma & enjoying every second of it (however my Grandma didn't have the best time with it). Now I have been making stuff from this cookbook again with my nephew. I hope that he enjoys it just as much as I did.

7 of 8 people found the following review helpful By my girls' mom on January 14, 2012
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
My 12yo had seen this on Amazon while doing her birthday wish list, but I waited until Christmas to get it for her. The look on her face when she opened it was priceless! She read it through right away and laughed and laughed while shouting out recipes and ingredients. Data's cat food recipe drew the most attention. I see a themed Klingon party heading our way. I highly recommend this cookbook for the younger Trek fan who has a bit of help in the kitchen from Mom or Dad. I've only glanced through it, but other reviewers seem to be bugged by some poor editing and not so on target references-- an under 13 crowd wouldn't care. It's the novelty of the book that makes it a 5-star.
