5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent technobable! 11 Mar 2001
By A Customer
This book 'does exactly what it says on the tin'! It is a technical manual for the Enterprise-D, giving a VERY detailed look at how this ship 'might' work in real life. It is full of well explained technobable and is very interesting and suprisingly plausable. Hundreds of clear illustrations are contained within this book, along with several interesting anecdotes from the series. Perhaps a bit much for the regular fan, but anyone with a technical or scientific mind will enjoy this book very much.

5.0 out of 5 stars Scotty Wouldn't Need Anything Else 25 Nov 2003
For any Trek fan, the technology plays a huge role in the magic of the show. The imagination and actual scientific theory which has gone into the various gizmos is inspiring, and this book sets out to explain them all.
And it does so well. From warp engines to phasers, from life support to structural integrity, every technology you can remember - some you may not - is in here. Accompanying diagrams and charts make it feel more like a true science book than a fictional book.
It is ideal for anyone who has ever wondered how warp speed works, how shields protect the ship, and how the crew stick to the floor instead of float around. Every technology is covered with a satisfactory, near-accurate scientific explaination. It's complexity does limit it perhaps to the older, more hard-core fans of the show rather than people who have only a passive interest, or younger fans who may not grasp all of the concepts covered.
An excellent addition to any fan's library.

4.0 out of 5 stars A worthwhile buy 11 Dec 2002
By A Customer
If you love TNG you are in for a treat with this book. It covers everything on the Enterprise-D from replicators to phasers, to explaining the basics of warp theory. This book is an esential for any Star Trek Fan and explains many unanswered questions. Being written by the produser, it is as close to the show as possible. A great buy.

I'll start by saying that if you just want a casual insight into how the NCC 1701-D Enterprise works, you MUST get this book.
If you want an in-depth knowledge of how Type X phaser emitters work and at what locations on the hull the inertial dampners are located - you REALLY must get this book!
Be warned, your friends and family will not appreciate your frequent quotations of anti-matter ratios of warp reactors as much as you thought they would....

4.0 out of 5 stars Very amusing 25 Mar 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I gave this as a present to my wife as we both adore sci fi, it's a great book to read, my only gripe with it, there are no colour pictures whatsoever, I know it's a technical manual but still, how difficult would it be to incorporate a few colour photos.

Apart from that I would recommend this book

Technical manual to cure your Star trek curiosity with many details. Interesting for hard core fans! I think its price is reasonable too.
