5.0 out of 5 stars Haynes Enterprise Manual 3 Nov 2010
By DR
Format:Hardcover
Okay, let's get it out of the way: this is not a 'workshop manual' in the style of the traditional Haynes car manuals. It's full of colour artwork, background info and technical descriptions of what's inside each Enterprise and how certain things work (such as impulse engines, warp engines and transporters). Also, and perhaps rather obviously, it is not based on a complete strip down and rebuild like the Haynes car manuals, and it is absolutely fair to say that the level of technical detail does not match, for example, the Star Trek: TNG Technical Manual (Okuda/Sternbach). However, that book is over twenty years old, is black and white throughout and covers just the Enterprise D. The Haynes Enterprise Manual covers ALL the Enterprises (apart from the one in the new film, but I can sort of see why this would have been difficult), so it's bound to look light in comparison. I've read the previous Star Trek technical manuals, and they are pretty heavy going. Fine if that's what you want. But if you want something that's much easier to read, and MUCH better illustrated (full colour elevations plus cutaways of every Enterprise) then give this one a try. In short, it's not over technical and therefore may appear a bit 'lightweight' to the real trekkies out there, but for a good overview covering all the Enterprises in one book, it does the job. It is what it is, and even if that's not what you were expecting, it's still the first Star Trek 'technical' book in a very long time.

By @GeekZilla9000 TOP 100 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Hardcover
I used to be a big Star Trek fan and was the proud owner of the highly detailed technical manual of the Enterprise 'D' from The Next Generation, but recently I've rediscovered some of the wonder I used to feel for the franchise and I've come to appreciate this book.

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fixed my faulty Starship. Thansk Haynes! 3 Jun 2011
By Gary_L
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
My starship developed a fault the other week, and I wasn't sure how the plasma coils should be removed. This book was a great help, and of course replacement was just a reversal of the removal process.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Xmas present 10 Jan 2011
Format:Hardcover
I am 13 asked for this for my christmas and I was not disappointed, this book is great for anyone and everyone who likes Star Trek except hardcore Trekkies may want something more like an actual workshop manual but I'm sure would still enjoy this book. I am not familiar with other Hayne's manuals but this book is obviously different to other Hayne's books and includes operational reports on each starship from which I learnt of the existence of the Enterprise-B and C there is of course more information on the original Enterprise and the Enterprise-D (huge amount of information on the D) than other ships. There is also some information about phasers, torpedoes, parallel universes, time travel and even the full sequence of what happens when you activate transporters and how long it takes, my only critisysm of the book is that there is not really enough pictures like the one on the cover (there is one of each ship) but I don't really mind.

Overall a great, informative book that anyone who has only even seen one episode of Star Trek would enjoy.

2.0 out of 5 stars Enterprise Service Manual review 6 Dec 2010
By Ringer
Format:Hardcover
This certainly does not boldly go where no man has gone before.This is basically a rehash of the Star Trek Fact Files section on the Enterprise.Not surprisingly as the same people were involved in both productions.Even the style has been copied across,it doesn't even look like a Haynes manual except for the cover.
It is not as good as other books on this subject which had more input from Michael Okuda such as Star Trek: The Next Generation: Technical Manual or the technical manuals for the Original series, this book has a lot more information about characters from the show and information about TV / movie episodes.
Overall very disappointing, what was a chance for a new angle of looking at the tech involved (ie: a service manual) was missed.
