Set phasers to fun..!
on 27 June 2015
I found this enlightening manual very helpful in practically instructing me how to replace the depleted dilithium crystals in a decommissioned old Starfleet shuttle I recently bought from a dodgy Ferengi called Quark for a few dozen bars of latium when I last visited the Beta quadrant during some well earned shore leave.
Seriously though, this is a surprisingly comprehensive & informative Star Trek manual including detailed cutaways & key technical data for all 7 Enterprise starships from Captain Archers first iconic vessel, to Kirk & Picards archetypal later starships. Also included are chapters explaining the factual & fictional science behind phasers, transporters, warp drive, parallel universes & time travel & how they all critically featured & contributed to the different Star Trek series & films. Apparently, the manual is also a heavily edited version of various articles taken from the earlier Star Trek fact files magazine, which may not appeal to hardcore Trekkies for that specific reason. However, the basic info contained within this book still provides a relatively sufficient balance of technical & scientific information on all the original series & films Enterprise classes, hopefully appealing to the more casual Trekkie like myself, who should appreciate & enjoy this ‘enterprising’ manual as much as I know I did.
