The Star Trek Encyclopedia by Debbie Mirek Star TrekThis new version of the Star Trek Encyclopedia is a reissue of the 1997edition, plus a 128-page supplement of additional material that updatesDeep Space Nine to the end of its run and Voyager to midway throughseason five. It also covers the movie Star Trek: Insurrection. Thesupplement is as meticulously detailed as the rest of the volume, listingsuch fascinating trivia as chadre kab (Seven of Nines first meal), Kahlessand Lukara (a Klingon opera), and voraxna (a Cardassian poison), as wellas all the new characters and species. Appendices include illustrations ofstarships, cast and crew listings, a historical timeline, and a bibliography.All photographs and illustrations (except for a few historical shots) are incolor. The encyclopedia was devised in part to help production staff on thevarious Star Trek TV series to keep up with the ever-increasing level ofdetail generated by over 30 years of creative effort. It is an excellentreference volume and, whether you want to settle an argument or write anovel, this book will answer your questions. But beware: the extensivecross-referencing leads to curious time-distortion effects, in which theunwary reader, dipping in to settle a single query, encounters an irresistibleurge to browse further, during which hours of normal time can pass in thewink of an eye. --Elizabeth SourbutThere is an ambiguos feeling buying this encyclopedia...you get amusedconsidering all the gathering info and the format in which it is displayed,but theres also a feeli ng that living to date, in 2009 (one year beforeArthur C Clarkes 2010 !) the value of the mentioned info is, unfortunately,outdated !!.So, if you love Trek and can live with the above explained introduction..goahead..buy it, as I did (I bought it just last week. I waited and waited ingetting a more updated encyclopedia to be release..but I got really tired !and decide to buy it).
Sumarizing I can only add to my review this: Mr. Okuda we need andupdate at warp speed 10.1 !!!!!!!!! and please do not include the alternateuniverse created it by the clumsyness of Ambassador Spock trying to saveRomulus from a Super Nova !!!!!!....leave the real TREK (includingEnterprise too) alone..its sacred history deserves respect.Hope you find this review useful!
