It isn't as highly detailed as the book I used to have, and it doesn't have incredible schematic diagrams, but it still contains lots of great pictures and information about the various spacecraft which have carried the name Enterprise. Whichever Enterprise is your favourite, you'll find full colour front, rear, and side views in here. There are facts on each of the ships along with images from some of the films.
As well as overviews of the ships, there are articles on various other Star Trek elements such as Warp Speed, Impulse Engines, and Defence Shields. The information is presented alongside illustrations so you can see where the hardware being discussed is located on the ships. It also provides write-ups on the role of the Bridge, Consoles, the Nacelles, etc - all things which are instantly familiar to even the most casual viewer of any Star Trek series or film.
I didn't realise until I saw the other reviews that this information is effectively a collective of articles from other sources, but if you haven't seen them before then this is an impressive overview of the ships and technology iconic to Star Trek. It might not have the level of detail as other available books, but it certainly isn't light on information.Read more ›
Although it's not a genuine manual as such, it's a nicely bound book containing interesting history and layouts of the various classes of starship and is an interesting read if you've not got much Star Trek technical info already in your Trek collection. A few of these on a shelf would probably be an interesting talking point for some.
Overall a great, informative book that anyone who has only even seen one episode of Star Trek would enjoy.
