5.0 out of 5 stars Still the definitive reference for Trekkies, er, Trekkers., December 7, 1999
This review is from: The Star Trek Encyclopedia (Paperback)
I can't imagine being a die-had Trekker without this book: the ultimate reference to people, places, things, events in the entire Star Trek universe from the original series of 1966 through all the movies and series right up to Voyager. This updated edition is not quite as smoothly integrated as previous updates--the last couple season's worth of shows and Star Trek: Insurrection are all treated in a separate (but extensive) section at the back, but a decent cross-referencing system lessens the inconvenience. I find it the ultimate can't put-down book-start to look up a subject of interest and you'll find yourself drawn from entry to entry until you've forgotten exactly what it was you were looking for but find yourself seized with the intense desire to rewatch several episodes. Unless you're the most serious Trek fan, you probably don't need the updated edition if you have an earlier one...but for those who do, it's a wonderful guide.

"No color pictures" The one advertised on Amazon, shows the pictures and illustrations in color. The copy I reeived are all in black and white. No big deal, however they should deliverwhat is shown in the advertisement.

Interesting info about your copy, S.O., because the copy I bought a few years ago has color pics, just like the preview here. My guess is that during one of the reprint runs, the publisher decided to save money by printing in black and white, which requires only one ink, black, instead of four colors or more and also means less set-up time for the press. But I agree--Amazon should make note of the fact that current reprints of the book are only in black and white instead of full color.
