Book Description

They said it couldn't be done ... all the myriad worlds which have been sought out and explored through more than 500 television episodes and nine Star Trek movies, mapped, illustrated and brought to life in the pages of a comprehensive Star Trek atlas.
From the comparatively crowded space of the Alpha and Beta Quadrants, home to Earth and Vulcan, Bajor and Betazed, the Cardassian Union and the Romulan and Klingon Empires; to the distant Gamma Quadrant controlled by the Dominion; to the far reaches of the Delta Quadrant, home space of the Borg, where of Federation explorers only the crew of the USS Voyager has ever been; NEW WORLDS, NEW CIVILIZATIONS catalogues peoples and planets from all four corners of the galaxy.
Ever wondered where the blue-skinned Bolians originated from? Or what it is like on the permanently frozen homeworld of the bloodless Breen? From the first world that the first away team landed on under the command of Christopher Pike in the original pilot episode 'The Cage' (a world that has been off-limits to the Federation ever since), to the world of the Ba'ku as seen in 'Star Trek: Insurrection', all these and many more are described and depicted in all their fascinating detail by a team of star-studded contributors. Produced in the finest tradition of bestselling Star Trek illustrated reference from Pocket Books such as The Art of Star Trek and Where No Man Has Gone Before, NEW WORLDS, NEW CIVILIZATIONS will be an essential addition to every Trekker's shelves.

5.0 out of 5 stars A "National Geographic" for Star Trek 7 Dec. 1999
By John DiBello - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
What if "National Geographic" ("Interstellar Geographic?") were still published in Star Trek's time? You might get something like this gorgeous oversized coffee-table book--a National Geographic-style study of Star Trek's brave new worlds and new civilizations. From a first-person account of trekking across Vulcan's Forge, to a visit to the devastated but under-construction Starfleet Academy, to the mysterious Q Continuum, this series of gorgeously illustrated essays treats the Trek universe through the eyes of (and in the style of) science writers and travel essayists, showing the ordinary Joe (and Jane and Q'yxk) of the 24th century about the worlds of their vast Federation. An eclectic and attractive mix of illustrators (I especially enjoyed the work of Dave McKean, better known for his "Sandman" covers) makes this a true illustrated treat in the vein of all those oversized National Geographic books. While there might be some quibbling among Trek fans about the pieces included (would the Federation really let information out to the general public on Q, or the Guardian of Forever?), every section is a delight and a great gift for the Trek fan.

5.0 out of 5 stars WOW! 8 Dec. 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Books like these are rare finds. I must admit, I don't like to buy books like this (especially this expense), but it was well worth dishing out the money. Friedman does it again with some very interesting insights into some of our favorite planets from the Trek universe. Kudos!

5.0 out of 5 stars A different sort of Star Trek book 6 Nov. 1999
By J. McCain - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
I was pleasantly surprised by this new Star Trek coffee table book which features a wide variety of art. The book is a celebration of the Federation after the Dominion War. It takes us in painting and in Friedmans excellent text to 18 stops from Starbase 11 to the Q-Continuum. There are short biographical sketches of each of the artists at the end of the book. I recommend this book to all fans of Star Trek. It left me wanting more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Artwork, Awesome Stories 18 July 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
For any trekker, you know what it feels like the first few times you watch trek, it feels like nothing else in the world, like magic. The feeling fades away, but this book revices those great mystical feelings. This book has great artwork, great stories, and this is the kind of book you take off the shelf every so often and read it again. BUY IT!

5.0 out of 5 stars Not what I expected, but stunningly beautiful 4 Nov. 1999
By D. Bell - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
As there was no summary of the book, or picture of the cover, I didn't know what to expect, but I took a chance & ordered it anyway. I'm very glad I did. It's a large book, beautifully illustrated, about some of the planets that the Enterprise, Defiant, or Voyager have visited, with "travel experiences," from visitors there. The first is a trip across Vulcan's Hammer by an earthman with a 220-year-old Vulcan guide. Another is a feast at Martok's. A third is a trip through a newly discovered Cardassian tomb. I am thoroughly enjoying it & recommend it highly.
