Overally it is a great book. Wonderfull illustrated, showing ship courses and also details on major planets and species.
Suddenly the rest of the galaxy dosent seem so distant.
The only bad point, not really a bad point, more a idea is that like they did with Nx-01 and Voyager they should have done for at least Enterprise-D and Enterprise-E, with routs of the ship.
(Everything is in colour in this book)
I absoulutely loved this book. It describes all of the planetary classes, shows a number of major star systems in detail, explains the star trek mapping system, and most importantly, it had large page spreads with detailed star charts. They show all of the star systems, named, and their positions in space. It goes on (at least in the edition I have) to include a historical spacial layout and icludes Enterprises first year's course.
Although I found that the details were not exactly consistant with my other trek books, or details from the show, and it also lacks details in non federation space, I still found it really interesting and informative. It is a absolute must have and at only £10, it is well worth having as part of your collection.
(Disclaimer for spelling errors, pobody's nerfect!)
So if the location of vulcan the ferengi allience, Romulan neutral zone, klingon empire, Caretakers array,deep space nine, bajoran wormhole etc are puzzling you, or you just want to look at a superbly detailed and entertaining book buy it, I definitely found it worth it
I recommend this book especially for people who have not watched much star trek as it allows you to understand the Trek universe so much better.
P.S: Be warned the locations of all of season 3 & 4 of Enterprise were aired after this book was made so if you are looking for the expanse or the xindi homeworld this book will not have it in.
