A basic look at the various races and species found in the Star Trek universe up until the time of the publication. Because this book was written perhaps some what prematurely it falls short in detail outside of the original series and very early The Next Generation. This in turn some what dates the book.

The book is interesting covering very rudimentary details as well as some episode anecdotes. It is a certain must have for the serious Trekfan.

Incomprehensibly organized, but with a sort of index (table) at the end in alphabetical order.

Again, an introductory text. No geographical details (not even of the 'be sure not to miss the Alhambra' type), except that there are basic planetary sketch maps at the bottom of the page.

Not even any real explanation of what interests the Federation has on particular planets (a good source of selenite?). No description of schools, agriculture, or even a good place to get a bowl of plomik soup.

This was a fun novelty, and resource book. Nothing too thought provoking; well really nothing thought provoking at all. The info is a tad dated, because it came out really during the Next Generation, but it was fun to read and a great piece of nostalgia.

If you're a "Star Trek" fan in the under-12 age group, then you'll enjoy this little book. Otherwise, it's not really up to the level of most other non-fiction "Trek" volumes. It's chief point of interest is that it's a pastiche of a 24th century I-Spy-style school text book...but the fascination factor lasts about five minutes.

An entertaining yet slim and superficial volume on the worlds and races seen in Star Trek. Not really worth the time.
