You know if this was just based on the newest Enterprise, I honestly don't think I'd be too keen on it.

Then again, are they fitting too much into one book?

How much of the new ship is in the book? I sure would love to know what the gigantic brewgeneering section looks like. And in the picture of the classic E what is up with the area around the impulse engines? I do love the ship porn!

It hasn't come out yet, but I think it's due in the UK sometime this month, so hopefully sometime in the next month.

Just purchase my copy of the Haynes Manual and honestly I am a little disappointed. Don't get me wrong the details that are in it are great, but I feel it didn't reach it's full potential.


There are more pictures from the show than there are cut-aways and exploded views of the ships and equipment. Also, I have no idea where views of the tricorder and communicator came from, but they are no where in the book. In fact that is one area I wish they had touched, there is nothing in the manuel on personal equipment.


Once again, it was a good effort but in the end they could have spent more time on it and added so much more.
