    Thanks for omitting the reboot

    Thanks for omitting the reboot. Too painful. They could've fallen into one of the alternate universes or something without wiping out the original one. Didn't have to wipeout the original one... Who thought it was a good idea to wipe out 30-40 years of stuff we experienced in one movie? Real Trekkers should appreciate the absence of that last movie. They could make it a separate book or pretend it didn't happen (like that Highlander 3 where they turned out to be aliens- didn't happen.)

    Really enjoyed this 'vault' of history.

    This book takes you through many years of Trek and includes some fun extras (like a comic book, some blueprints, and hand written notes). My son loves this book (he is 12) and enjoying getting some more details, background and history of several Trek generations.

    A Must Have for a Trekkie/Trekker!

    Great book, very inclusive of all of the series and first 10 movies. The interactive aspects of the book are really fun. Interesting look at the storied history of the franchise as well as a peek at the 40+ years of merchandising.

    I wish the 2009 JJ Abrams movie was included to make this a true 45th anniversary tome.

    Other than the glaring omission of the reboot, this book is a MUST HAVE for the consummate Trekkie or Trekker.

    I LOVE it and highly recommend it.

    A worthy volume to any Star Trek Fan.

    This book covers all of the television series, the first ten movies, and the effect Star Trek has had on pop culture. It also has several neat little pockets, each with a different surprise. The only thing I did not like about the book is that it did not cover the newest Star Trek film. That would have made this book more complete.
