2.0 out of 5 stars Big Disappointment, November 12, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Star Trek: U.S.S. Enterprise Haynes Manual (Hardcover)
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.

Yeah,
I have to agree with you...
I found a lot of factual mistakes in the book... Basic things that the author(s) should have known. There were mistakes that could have been avoided by just looking at the blueprints/line drawings for the various Starships!

As it stands, I really wanted more emphasis on Classic Trek.

Let's face it -- as decent as some of the Next Gen Trek was the original show is the true icon and best-loved version in general.

TOS is also by the nature of the way it was rushed into production and written (haphazardly) the least well-documented Trek and most often contradictory with itself. It boggles the mind that the the original TOS Enteprise survived five years with ONE set of phaser banks and two torpedo bays mounted in the saucer! The Refit, by comparison, is a virtual battleship. Again, lack of consistency... But then again it's hard to believe that the Refit version is the same Ship, let alone the same Class!
