Bjo Trimble's Star Trek Concordance continues to be an essential reference for Trek fans. When she started creating it (from Dorothy Jones Heydt's prodigious collection of notes), Trek fans couldn't Google who wrote an episode or what that random Ensign's name was again in that bridge scene.

This is a collection of fan art, episode summaries, and a lexicon of all that matters, with a the ability to cross reference, which proved very valuable to a youngster in the days before online ...more
If you like Star Trek: The Original Series, this is pretty much the book you want to get if you need a reference work about it. The book has been lovingly crafted by one of the original Trekkies and covers ALL of the original series, the animated series, and the movies. It also has most of the TOS cast appearances in the other Trek franchise shows (missing only "Trials and Tribblations" from DS9).
