Editorial Reviews

Review

Treknology is a gorgeous, well-researched and sharply written exploration of where we actually stand on technology to take us where no man has gone before: from transporters, impulse engines and warp drives to holodecks, replicators, and tricorders, the future is closer than ever.
- Mr. Media Video Interviews

Treknology also does something else different from existing books about the science and technology of Star Trek: it spends a lot of time discussing the current state of science and technology, and how we might eventually make Trek’s technology a reality. 
- TrekCore.com

Siegel provides the perfect set-up for diving into the very real science we'd need to build 'Star Trek' tech.
- Adam Frank, NPR Books

4.0 out of 5 stars It's actually really eye opening to see just how close real science is to recreating - or rather creating for the first time in the real world - the sort of fanciful technology we've come to love in our sci-fi
