    Whether you prefer Captain Kirk or Captain Picard, if you know w

    Whether you prefer Captain Kirk or Captain Picard, if you know who these two men are, then you’re most likely a Trekkie (or live with one!). And if you’re a Trekkie then you are probably on the lookout for new books featuring your favorite show. If you must have everything “Star Trek,” then take a look at Star Trek The Next Generation: On Board the U.S.S. Enterprise.




    After a brief overview of the history of ships named “Enterprise,” from the first ship in 1775 to the NCC-1701-D that is so familiar to fans of the series, the authors move along to “memorable voyages” aborad the Enterprise. Next, it's on to specific areas of the ship including all the well-known areas from sick bay, Ten Forward, the transporter room and the holodeck. There are two “gatefold”(fold-out) pages that open up to give detailed views of the exterior of the ship.




    Each section is accompanied by a photo of that portion of the ship, along with blocks of text pointing out interesting facts, as well as images of the main ship members and brief bios of each. Finally, there is a CD which offers a 3-D tour through portions of the ship to enhance the experience.




    This is a fun book, with bright photos and a very appealing layout. It is, however, rather basic in its approach. The text is simplistic; for example, there is nothing remotely technical discussed, the sort of thing a fan would devour. Because true Trekkies can quote the Star Fleet Manual in their sleep, and speak fluent Klingonese to their friends, it is unlikely there will be much here for the diehard fan. For those new to the show, perhaps hooked by the recent movie and looking forward to the next, or for youngsters who want to learn a little more about their favorite show, it is likely to be a much appreciated book.




    Quill says: Diehard Trekkies will likely find this book too simplistic, but those new to the series, as well as young fans, should enjoy beaming aboard the Enterprise with this title.
