Star Trek: The Next Generation - Technical Manual by Michael Okuda
I just restarted watching The Next Generation and discovered this again on my shelf. I love the detail of the ship coupled with backstory on why sets were designed the way they were or how they conceived the ship. If you want to know exactly where everything is and how it works on the NCC 1701-D then this book is for you.
To Seek Out New Life: The Biology of "Star Trek" by Athena Andreadis
2.0 out of 5 stars Sort of interesting, 21 April 2014
I love Star Trek and was fascinated to find this on what could or could not be possible (e.g. transportation). However, it was not what I expected. Part of the fascination with Star Trek is the idea that many things could eventually be possible. And the fact that this is a fictional series, so maybe we shouldn't be too picky. She seems to know what she is talking about in terms of the science but it seems she set out to prove that Star Trek is all hogwash, disappointing.
Lonely Planet Ireland (Travel Guide) by Lonely Planet
4.0 out of 5 stars Great travel guide, 21 April 2014
Wherever I travel, I always buy Lonely Planet and this did not disappoint. It gives great detail of the towns and cities and countryside, great tips of what not to miss and easy to use.
