Product Description

Amazon Review

Covering all four TV series and the nine films, this collection of thousands of quiz questions will have fans pulling their hair out in frustration. Questions range from the straightforward to the fiendishly obscure with plenty of those infuriating, tip-of-the-tongue, I-know-that-I-know-this experiences in between. With everything from "What colour shirt did you not want to be wearing if you were part of a landing party? " to "Name Kang's wife" and "Who took command of the U.S.S. Drake after Will Riker declined the commission?" there should be something to tax even the most knowledgeable. And if the questions aren't difficult enough, there's always the fun of tracking down the misprints in the answer section at the back (there are a few, although it's largely accurate). Questions are organised thematically in nine sections, beginning with a section on each series, and one on the films. Other sections test the reader's knowledge of Starfleet, the science and technology of Trek, alien species and the families of regular characters, amongst other things. This is a book that every Star Trek obsessive will love, but be warned, once you start dipping into it, it's very hard to put it down again.

Definitive is right 6 July 2000
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is a great trivia book for Star Trek. It has trivia on all kinds of subjects, such as Vulcans, Borg, episode names, and every major crew member. I thought I knew a lot about Star Trek, but after I started reading through this book I found out how much I didn't know. Here is an example: "In 'Tapestry,' Picard relived a time in his youth with two of his best friends from the academy. Name the friends." Another question is: "What substance was Elaan's necklace composed of?" Whoever knows these and the other questions in the book is a professional Star Trek fan. If you want to have fun with your Star Trek knowledge by all means buy this book.

A Great Trivia Book. 2 Dec 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I bought this book at my local Waldenbooks store a while back. On the way home, I was flipping through it and found all the good stuff. Overall, the book is a must-have for any Star Trek fan out there. The only problem I found with the book was that there were a few errors. I only found two and they are relatively minor. For instance, on page 165, for the Match the Ship with its Registry Section, Voyager's Registry is actually NCC-74656 not NCC-1647. Also on the same page, the USS Enterprise E is a Soverign class not Excelsior. Again, these are fairly minor problems. Nothing to get too bent out of shape about, but they are something to watch for.

Part 2 of a Great Trivia Series 6 April 2001
By Picardfan007 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Of all the new trivia books this one is a keeper because it's interesting from start to finish. No boring questions about the amount of pips on Data's collar. To test your true knowledge of all the Trek series; the writer utilizes resonable material from good episodes. There are no obscure references. I found it entertaining and insightful on the details I didn't notice at first.

Just when I thought I knew all that was to be known about Star Trek triva, The Definitive Star Trek" Trivia Book proves me wrong! There is so much to learn from this book that you didn't even know was even mentioned. If you're a Star Trek trivia buff, heck any kind of trivia buff, then this book is a must.

The Definitive Star Trek Trivia Book Volume II 6 Jun 2002
By Joe Zika - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The Definitive Star Trek Trivia Book Volume II by Jill Sherwin is a real jewel. The book is divided into 10 chapters and has information on TOS, ST:TNG, DS-9, Voyager, The Films, New Life and New Civilizations, Starfleet, Personnel Files, Abstract Knowledge and of course Number Ten is the Answer section.
So, if you are into TREK, this is the book that will answer some or most of your questions about these areas within the TREK Universe. I found that reading and answering the questions further increased my knowledge about these TREK areas. And if you need to settle a dispute... you've got the answer book to help you.
As the Trek Universe expands, I look forward to more of these compendia to be published. The book is set up well and is extremely well thought out.
This is an excellent addition to your Trek library.
