Though billed as "An inside look at the most famous starship", this book's cutaways and set plans are paltry, even for the more well known ship interiors like the Movie Enterprise, or the Enterprise D. Plans for the lesser known vessels have even less detailed coverage. If you were expecting the kind of detailed technical floor plans and cutaways of former titles like the original Star Trek Technical Manual, or Mr. Scott's Guide to the Enterprise, you will find this book quite the disappointment. It in no way compares.

The concept for the book was terrific, the actual product does not deliver on the promise of that original concept. A shame.

I was expecting more of a "Haynes" feel. I have several Haynes manuals, and the only thing it shares in common would be the logo and coloring on the cover! Honestly...not worth the money.

While the Haynes Repair Manual for the Starship Enterprise sounds wonderful on paper in real life the book is quite thin, overpriced, with medicore pictures. While I love the idea of how to do maintence on the Enterprise, this book isn't it. I'm not impressed- this is a "Hack book, made to make money off the fans" rather than an actual book of what would be expected in real life.

Dissapointed. Would not recommend purchase.

What a great idea. A Haynes Manual for Star Trek. If you have ever seen a Haynes manual, you know what to expect from this book---wrong!

This book is simply embarrassing. Coming from Haynes, one would expect technical details. Instead, it is just a piece of garbage intended to milk those die hard trek fans who will buy anything trek.

What get you get is a chapter on each ship.

a. Each chapter starts with cutaway diagram of the type shown on the cover. These diagrams are merely chapter icons. They are of low quality, poorly placed on the page and provide no useful information.
b. There is a flyweight specification listing. For example, length overall is given. Things you would expect (e.g. saucer diameter, engineering hull length) are not given.
c. Then there is a trek world biography of the ship. These are illustrated with scenes from the movie or TV show---the same kind of stuff that has been run in fan magazines for decades. This kind of material makes up the bulk of the book.
d. There are multi view orthographic diagrams of the ship. These are 1) so dark that little detail shows up 2) ineptly placed on the page so that they go into the spine, even when they could have fit on the page vertically and 3) (for you rivet counters) not accurate. My view is that for non-real objects like this, there is room for a certain amount of artistic liberties. Here the plans are both inaccurate view of what appears in the films and TV and are of low grade quality.
e. There is usually a bridge diagram. Rivet counters complain about these in the various forums.

In other words, there is:
a. Nothing new in this book.
b. Nothing of quality in this book.
c.

If you're looking for a solid technical manual on the workings of the Enterprise, keep looking (or go back and re-read your copy of Mr. Scott's Guide). I've never written a book myself, but come on, did the authors not now who their audience was going to be? The book starts out with a huge picture of the Okuda's in the Forward, which doesn't do the best job of setting the mood of the book. It then launches into a "history" of the Enterprise, which is pretty much just a weak synopsis of the shows and movies. This is probably my biggest complaint is that 90% of the text is just rehash of events from the shows and the movies. Seriously, did they really think that the folks buying this book had never seen the shows or movies? My other main compliant was all the "filler" material. Did the book really need the following passage from page 48 describing the blinking red light on the main console of original Enterprise: "An indicator on the front of the console illuminated to show the ship's status. Under normal operating conditions, it was not illuminated, but when the ship was at red alert it flashed red". I'm not making that up. That's a word-for-word quote from the book. I half expected an explanation to show up indicating that doors were provided for crew quarters, and that if the door were closed, it indicated that the crew member wanted privacy.

There were a couple of good diagrams and breakout explanations of things like quantum torpedos, which is why I gave two stars. But seriously, this is fifteen bucks and a few hours of reading I wish I had back.

This is just one more item that the powers who control Star Trek have under-delivered on. When I saw that this was a Haynes Manual I expected something that would thrill the geek in me. I am so glad that I saw this book before I could order it. Thin, some over-used pictures, and some poorly done, low-res, badly thought out computer graphics coupled with lame unimpressive write ups. I won't waste my money on this turd, and neither should you!

I'll be honest. I've been looking forward to this book being released for quite a while, but when it finally arrived I was very disappointed, so much so that I planned to return it to Amazon for a refund. But with a little time I've changed my opinion.
Not surprisingly, unlike the Haynes car manuals, this book is not based on a complete strip down and rebuild of the Star ship enterprise! But like other reviewers, from a `Haynes manual' I expected and in depth manual with detailed technical drawings, information and well labelled cutaways. That's something it doesn't offer. And it's safe to say the level of detail does not match the `Star Trek: Starfleet technical manual' (Joseph Franz), `Mr Scott's guide to the enterprise' (Shane Johnson) or `Star Trek: TNG Technical manual (Okuda).
So what does it offer? Well once I'd got passed the fact that it isn't what I was expecting, it is actually a pretty good book. It's a book full of (in my opinion) beautiful colour artwork, background information, and history of each vessel. It covers 7 different Enterprises (not including the one from the new movie, although it does mention it). It includes some excellent descriptions of how certain things in each enterprise works, such as warp engines, transporters, impulse engines, holodecks and deflector shields etc. It's easy to read and I love the cutaways, really good for getting the scale of things (although they'd have been much better if they were labelled). The full colour elevations of each ship are great too. There are perhaps a few too many pictures from the Star Trek movies and episodes, but these are usually accompanying the histories of each vessel. It was nice to have an overview of what happened in the different series, and it's whetted my appetite to go back and watch them again.
