Sadly, although promoted as 'a breathtaking 3D tour' of the U.S.S. Enterprise, NCC-1701-D, this book and CD is anything but and was VERY disappointing. In as far as I have enormous respect for Denise and Michael Okuda I purchased this book believing that we would be getting a tour of the sets, the interior of the ship from the perspective of somebody who worked on Star Trek: The Next Generation. Sadly I was very much in error. Although lavishly illustrated with lots of stock photographs of the ship, it's interiors and primary characters it does not in any way shape or form actually tell you anything which is not available in other volumes and worse, the CD-ROM which included in the book does not go into any great depth about the ship. Instead offering only SIX locations (rendered in all fairness in exceptional detail, but lacking interactive qualities) out of the many possible ones we saw in the show, or which have been covered by earlier products (the interactive U.S.S. Technical Guide comes to mind from many years ago). Sadly I will not be recommending this product for those reasons and I feel that it is little more than a cheap and nasty attempt at cashing in on the popularity of Star Trek: The Next Generation. As another reviewer as said here, the book's writing style and presentation reminds me of a 'basic learner' type of books aimed at children and was insulting to the adult, often fan-oriented, audience.
