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.
