The best book you can get a new Star Trek fan—The Star Trek Book


There are over nine hundred episodes and movies combined of Star Trek available to watch now which includes Short Treks, all of the Prime Timeline movies, and the Kelvin movies. This doesn't count season five of Star Trek: Discovery or the upcoming third season of Star Trek: Strange New Worlds. It's a lot of ground to cover and a lot to learn, especially if you (or someone you know) is aiming to watch for the very first time.

If a new show is being watched and a reference is made to a legacy character like Captain Kirk or an event in history like the Dominion War, there is guaranteed to be confusion. And while explaining who the person is or what the event was to this new viewer can be helfpul, it can also be overwhelming. There needs to be some sort of guide. Well, there is. It originally came out in 2016, but it has been revised to include the newer Trek shows. The brief review of the book from GenreOnlinenet below gives you a glimpse inside.

The Star Trek Book—Strange New Worlds Boldly Explained by Paul Ruditis and Sandford Gladen-Stone is essentially an encyclopedia for Star Trek. It begins with explaining the quadrants, the United Federation of Planets, and even the mirror universe then moves on to Starfleet where it introduces the ships, the characters from each of the series,and even the space station. From there, the book picks up with Federation Allies and Enemies, which, of course, includes the Borg, the Dominion, and Khan. After that, it's on to the science and technology of Trek which will introduce a new viewer to all the gadgets that makes Trek work. Finally, the book wraps up with a section on New Life and New Civilizations that investigages the various species and the explained like the Q Continuum, V'Ger, and the Tribbles.

This is the essential way for a new fan to learn about the franchise or really even someone who wants to brush up on their Trek knowledge. At the back of the book is a listing of all of the televisions series and the episodes as well as the movies and their release dates. Also included is a glossary that defines those strange words that pop up now and again.

This is a must have if you want to know more about the legacy of Star Trek and the characters that bring it to life. The hardcover copy is available for only $15.68, but you can also get it on Kindle for $10.99.
