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!
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.
