Frequently bought together
Customers who bought this item also bought
With a delightfully obsessive hand, Michael and Denise Okuda present the minutiae of every moment from the four Star Trek series and eight films. Every planet ever visited, every food ingested, every outfit worn, and every featured character appears in The Star Trek Encyclopedia, on glossy pages with color illustrations worthy of author Michael Okuda's position as art director for the entire Star Trek universe. Even the nonfan will enjoy the endless cross-references and the secret, cohesive universe exposed in this volume, which reads like the realization of Jorge Luis Borges's dream of a fictive encyclopedia merging with the real world. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

WOW. I had the original in the 1990s, But this one is hardback and contains EVERYTHING TREK!
Total 1056 pages! 2 volumes, 3"x9"x12". Weight: 12 lbs.
So VERY comprehensive! Put together by the Graphics masters of all the 1990s Star Trek, "the Okudas!"
I know it is currently $88, but if you like anything Star Trek at all, or have a loved one that does,
GET THIS, you and they will LOVE IT!!!...:)
Great in depth information in an easy to follow layout. Everything is in short clips that make you want to read "just one more."
The kids love to see and read about their favorite characters and learn more about each back story.
None the less with the existence of the internet and the online "Star Trek Encyclopedia" wiki/a known as "Memory Alpha" which has incredible sources of information, recaps of episodes, and BTS info a book-set like this seems quaint. But it works very, very nicely. To begin with the thing is massive, weighing a combined 13 lbs the two books are 1.125 inches thick a piece inside a box that itself is an eighth of an inch thick all around. The book has that "reference book smell" common to the type of high-quality, treated, paper used in them. Nice, glossy, pages with easily readable text and high-quality images comprised of both screen caps from the episodes/movies, illustrations of the ships, aliens, clothing, technology and such and large reference tables for the planets, species and numerous other things that make up all of the Star Trek universe.
An utter trove of information that's just neat to have in a hard, physical, form.
The set encompasses all of Star Trek's 50 years of canonical film and television productions through the 2013's Star Trek: Into Darkness. though the book does make some tangential references to 2016's Star Trek: Beyond and the planned series set to be released in the next couple years. The information referencing events in the movies since 2009's "Star Trek" is called out as being part of "The Kelvin Timeline" to distinguish its events and information from the "Prime Timeline" that makes up the bulk of the Star Trek universe for the last 50 years.
Massive book, and lots of information. Needed in a world with Wikis and such? Probably not, but there's something about having a physical copy of something that was created by two heroes in the Star Trek fandom, being a huge part of Star Trek since The Next Generation, in Michael and Denise Okuda.
In the reviews/ratings on this page mostly mention older versions of the Star Trek Encyclopedia books that came out years ago; hard to relate them at all to this release.
It has almost 15 pages I sizing Planets, Celestial Bodies & Stars from the Original Show, Next Generation & DS9.
(I suppose they chose to stay within the Alpha Quadrant on this reference or it would be an enormous cataloging!)
The various shuttle craft, communicators etc.
Personnel are all shown and all these people & items are also noted with episodes they are shown in, star dates and more!
396 pages of reference that every Star Trek fan NEEDS!
