The book deals with each of the specific series from the original until "Voyager," including both the often neglected animated series and the aborted "Phase II" series of the mid-1970s. All films from "Star Trek: The Motion Picture" to "Star Trek Generations" are also covered.
The amount and quality of items in this visual "museum" are astounding. There are behind-the-scenes photos, concept drawings, photos of models, prosthetic makeup designs, storyboards, movie posters from around the world, closeup shots of props, and more. Particularly interesting were the shots of certain props and aliens which were barely seen in fleeting shots, but which represent great imagination and artistry.
Also noteworthy are the drawings which document the evolution of both the original series "Enterprise" and the "Next Generation" ship. I was fascinated by the concept drawings of possible "Enterprises" for the aborted "Phase II" series, as well as by the rejected new uniforms for the first "Next Generation" feature film.
The concise but clear text is a good match for the wealth of glorious, full-color photographs. This book is, from start to finish, a visual feast for "Trek" fans.
This is one prime example of why some books just do not work in the electronic medium.
Buy the bound book only. Buying the kindle one is like flushing money down the toilet.
Note - only covers up through Star Trek VI of the movies, and does precedes "Enterprise" the TV series.
Fun addition to your sci-fi bookshelf.
4 stars regardless of price, 5 if you can score a good used deal.

this is strictly for the die hard star trek fan. After so many years of Star Trek, it should have been larger and have way more pictures. I ended up returning this.Published 13 months ago by Kindle Customer

This book is scanned poorly, and the graphics--which may have looked great in the print edition--are disappointingly tiny, and don't scale well at all. Read morePublished on March 12, 2014 by Amazon Customer
