This is the task that faces Neelix, chef for the U.S.S. Voyager, every time he takes on the challenge of trying to feed its crew of 140 food critics. But over the course of their journey, Neelix's l

An unbelievable read. I actually tried some of the recipes inside and they were brilliant! Even if you are not a Star Trek fan, (I admit it...I am)you will find recipes worth enjoying.

Fun for the fans, but as a cookbook, it's just average.

Fun and fanciful recipe book full of colorfully designed menus and a lot of witty writing.

It's sooooo hard to find a reliable Klingon Blood Wine recipe these days!

An absolutely fabulous concept. I'm glad Neelix (Er, Ethan Phillips) had the gumption to throw these recipes together, alongside meticulous research into the appearances of food stuffs in all of the series, and even a few recipes from actual Star Trek actors. I lift my glass of Tranya to you, sir!

In addition to a deplorable lack of photos, this book also suffers slightly in its organization: I really like the organization b

A book filled with delicious recipes, that simultaneously caters to my deep-seated love of (almost) all things Star Trek? How could I go wrong here?

(As a delightfully nerdy aside, for the first birthday I had while we were together, my boyfriend made me a birthday dinner of recipes taken exclusively from this book. Counselor Troi's chocolate raspberry cake was shaped like the eponymous pastry from the game Portal)

I loved it. I have made a few of the recipes. Eventually I will try more. No Ferengi food though. Although I love the Ferengi. This book is absolutely wonderful if you are a Star Trek fan. They have recipes from original season through all.

I know it's probably cheesy but I just finished watching the entire Voyager Series and really enjoyed it. So, as a cookbook collector I like books from places I've been or movies or shows I enjoy. Fun.

Really mixed bag

And not necessarily good. This collection varies from being a collection of recipes provided by performers of the Star Trek franchise to recreations of foods discussed (with help from the stylists of the shows) or 'here, take this recipe and rename it something alien' plus tons of explanation. As a cookbook, the lack of organization makes it difficult to use. As a memory album, it functions better.
