5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent guide to TNG and early DS9 24 April 2010
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
I recently purchased "Goodnight Seattle", a guide to Frasier by the same publisher and noticed that a Star Trek guide was also published by them. While The New Trek Programme Guide does not have the same level of critical analysis that the Frasier guide had, it makes up for it by having excellent episode synopses and trivia from the episodes. Its a pity the authors never published a follow up that covered DS9's later five seasons.

This is a very informational book for all Star trek NG Fans. It contains a synopsis of each episode. All though a few of the Episodes are a bit out of order, the book is a great guide, espicially if you own the entire series. The only enhancement I would make is an author's rating of each episode.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very informative for Star Trek fans 22 July 2001
By W. Sheppard - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This is a pretty cool guide to Star Trek: The Next Generation and Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. For each episode they list the stardate, any new planets, aliens and technology encountered, quotes, a plot summary, and many more tidbits. The only reason I gave it four stars is that after episode #52 of DS9, the entries have no detail and are abbreviated to just a few lines. It's as though they didn't have time to finish it!
There are also a few interesting pages at the back that explain how Star Trek is a metaphor for the American way of life.
Overall: If you watch Star Trek TNG and DS9 a lot, you will defintely not regret buying this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Detail In A Compact, Easy To Use Form 31 Mar 2012
By Dayton Lavon Kitchens - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This is one of the best and handiest "episode guides" for Star Trek or any other series. The information is formatted well and consistently and presented in an often humorous and charming form. The writers manage to be both serious about Star Trek yet not forget that it is still ultimately a television show.
