For those who have it, what do you think? I also thought this may help those who are considering on purchasing it with their decision.


 


Personally, I found the book really catered to the TOS and TNG fans. If your favorite Trek is one of the later series-DS9, VOY, or ENT, you may be a little dissapointed.  VOY for example, had no inserts at all. I really think a better effort could have been given to give each series it's respective due. I expected TOS and TNG to get more coverage to a degree (as perhaps they should since they paved the way and are iconic in their own rights), but DS9 and especially VOY and ENT were pretty...neglected as far as inserts and coverage are concerned.


 It's still a good book, but unless TOS and TNG are your faves, it may not be worth the $40 price tag. Suggestion for those who want it but a later series is their fave: buy it used.

I agree it was centric on the 2 series.  I was also disappointed to note the chair blueprints are for the E's captain's chair, not the D's and it is more of a sketch that would be useless in making a replica.  There wasn't much new and interesting inside.  had it not been sealed so I could have looked inside, Iwouldn't have bought it.  I think it is crap.

Same here. To keep it from going to waste, when I get back on my feet and can go to conventions again, I'm just gonna turn it into an autograph book. It's still a pretty book, but nothing really to "ooh" and "ahh" over....and honestly, I am one of the easiest fans to please so for me to say this, it's sad.
