this book is very very funny and an ideal gift for the man who likes star trek...but who also likes women. Captain Kirk is well known for his ability to disarm women of all backgrounds, whatever planet they may be from, and this book catalogues his 'achievements' in boldly going where no man has gone before...

Based on the title, I was expecting a presentation of many lead female characters of Star Trek: The Original Series. While the book description readily admits that not all women are included, and I had found another review mentioning how thin the book is (84 pages), I was still hoping for more content (the font is quite big...) and at least one illustration per character (and in which episode they aired). This is an entertaining book, for sure, but also rather empty.

4.0 out of 5 stars Funny book. Loved it! 5 May 2012
By Yankee Hank - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
To be clear, this is not a book of ALL the women in TOS Star Trek - just Kirk's women, and it's meant to be funny. My only complaint is the book is short (that's why I took off a star). It is only 84 pages but is hilarious! For each "Kirk woman" featured, the book contains a humorous 1-2 page bio, and the ones with photos are certainly not the most appealing. Some are downright hideous. If you're looking for a picture-book of the women, look elsewhere. Anyway, here are the bios that included:

Bios with photos (9):
Nona (Private Little War), Deela (Wink of an Eye), Sylvia (Catspaw), Rayna (Requiem of Methuselah), Dr Janet Wallace (Deadly Years), Marlena Moreau (Mirror, Mirror), Edith Keeler (City on the Edge of Forever), Lenore Karidian (Crazy daughter of the thesbian mass murderer), Janice Rand (sadly, not a good photo).

Bios with no photos (11):
Drusilla (Bread and Circuses), Marta (Yvonne Craig's character), Miramanee (Paradise Syndrone), Odona (Mark of Guideon), Andrea (What Little Girls are Made Of), Kelinda (By any Other Name), Areel Shaw (hot prosecutor in Court Martial), Dr Janice Lester (Turnabout intruder), Eve McHuron (Mudd's women), Shahna (Gamesters of Triskelion), Elaan (of Troyius).

Interestingly, Ruth (Kirk's ex from Shore leave is missing). Also, the following were not in the book because they were not "Kirk's women":
Droxine-Spock's tease from Cloudminers, Zarabeth-Spock's tease in the ice cave, Angela Martine, McCoy's squeeze-Yeoman Barrows on Shore Leave, Lee Merriwether's character, Girl from Spock's brain, Checkov's gal from Last Gunfight, Spock's fiance in Amok Time, Spock's Romulan commander squeeze, Diana Muldaur's 2 characters, the Empath, McCoy's woman from the World is Hollow, Barbara Babcock's 2 characters, Scott's girlfriend-Lt Romaine in Lights of Zetar, Lt Palamos from the Apollo episode, Sybo from Wolf in the fold, the blonde in Patterns of force. I'm sure there were others I missed.

Overall, it's a very funny read. I found myself laughing out loud!

5.0 out of 5 stars a great read and very helpful for picking up ladies 7 Oct. 2016

a great read and very helpful for picking up ladies, nearly gave my religious mother a heart attack when she saw it on my coffee table. I should mention that I'm a girl and she is very conservative, and I didn't feel like explaining my sexuality to her at the time. so. lol

2.0 out of 5 stars You gotta be kidding me 24 Feb. 2008
By W. Sprague - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
When I first saw this advertised at Fry's I had to laugh. However, after seeing it here on Amazon getting all these glorious 5-star reviews, and being a Star Trek fanatic for the last 30+ years, I decided to buy it. Mistake. When it arrived, the first thing that struck me was how TINY it is - about the same surface area as a standard paperback novel, and only 60+ pages long. It was like a childrens' book and, in my mind, hideously overpriced. $5.95 absolute max.
The content was fun for 10 minutes or so, but the problem I see is that if you aren't totally obsessed with the minutia of Star Trek you won't understand most of the references and just think it is bad writing (the author tries to incorporate the names of the episodes in his 'prose') and if you ARE fan enough to catch all the references, and you're over the age of 12, it quickly becomes tedious and juvenile. And half the characters discussed don't even have photos! No Helen Noel? You gotta be kidding me.
To be fair, I only read the first half because I got bored and went back to something more intellectual like Uncle John's Bathroom Reader (which are way more fun!)
So - if you must own every bit of Star Trek minutia there is to own, buy this book, accepting the fact that CBS is taking advantage of you big-time, otherwise, spend 20 minutes in the library or wait for it to show up at a garage sale for a quarter. I felt really ripped off.
