The U.S.S. Enterprise is without doubt the most famous starship in history. The vessels that have carried the name have saved the galaxy countless times and her captains, including Archer, Kirk, and Picard, have been legendary.
This Haynes Manual provides in-depth information about these extraordinary ships, from the Enterprise NX-01, to Captain Kirk’s Enterprise NCC-1701 and Captain Picard’s Enterprise NCC-1701-D including histories of each vessel, technical information about their systems, and discussions of key technologies such as transporters and warp-speed travel. Find out exactly what powered these ships, how they were armed and what it took to operate them.
The book features newly created artwork throughout, including full-ship cutaways of each Enterprise, key systems, and interior locations together with detailed new exterior views by one of Star Trek’s original visual effects artists.
This Haynes Manual is fully authorized by CBS and technical consultant Michael Okuda, who spent thirteen years working on Star Trek TV series and movies.

Waste of Time
Unfortunately, I had learned of this edition early-on and therefore looked forward to this edition's release for quite a long while, even going so far as to have pre-purchased it in advance - only to have it delivered electronically to my child-like eager hands, and almost immediately, most certainly, gravely disappointed.
It is poorly formatted, fitting comfortably in neither landscape nor portrait viewing modes (on iPad, I'll review it again once iBooks for Mac is out of beta, though it's just as abysmal an experience there), the text is stark white in sections where the background is the exact same color of bright-white, rendering the text literally unable to be deciphered, without any available option to change the color of the embedded texts.
Not only was this an expensive the disappointment, it was a waste of two things no one can afford to throw away: time and money.
