Star Trek Vault charts the remarkable history of the world's most popular science fiction series, examining the franchise's first 40 years. Covering all six Star Trek television series and the ten original feature films, the book highlights the far-reaching social and scientific optimism that underpins the franchise, dwelling on milestones such as its groundbreaking mixed-race casts and technologies that have since become commonplace, before taking an in-depth look at the making of each series and movie. Fully illustrated with more than 350 images, and including 13 interactive reproductions of the most fascinating memorabilia from the CBS archives—on-set signage, hand-drawn storyboards, blueprints for Picard's captain's chair, and a vintage T-shirt transfer—Star Trek Vault provides a broad perspective on the voyages of Captains Kirk, Picard, Sisko, Janeway, and Archer. The ultimate treasure trove of Star Trek imagery and memorabilia, Star Trek Vault is sure to appeal to both the casual and the die-hard fan.

Praise for Star Trek Vault:
“[A] treat for your inner Trekkie. It’s the perfect gift whether you are a fan of Kirk or Picard. Or Janeway . . . we guess.” —Entertainment Weekly

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.

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.

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.

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.)
