Model makers reference,
This review is from: Ships of the Line (Star Trek) (Hardcover)
This book has a series of stunning plates depicting the evolution of Star Trek from the prequel, through TOS to TNG and beyond. There is one howler. On page 34, the scales of the figures standing next to the Enterprise, one of them supposed to be Captain Christopher Pike are incorrect. As the original TOS Enterprise was supposed (or should I say is or will be) 947feet long, these people look like they may be about 40 feet tall. Other than that, well captioned. As you open this book, it shows a plate with a caption on the adjoining page to indicate what the illustration is all about. This is sort of more like a Star Trek Calendar but without dates. Real coffee table material for real coffee drinkers. If you are an Enterprise model make, I'm sure you'll find this very useful or at least useful for reference given the quality of the illustrations are very good. I would have liked to have seen far more coverage of the TOS Enterprise that I at least grew up with, rather than Deep Space Nine but I think TOS does get a reasonable airing. Happy gawping!
