This book was a waste of time and a disappointment. Giving it one star is being generous. And the sad thing is that it started well enough. The author's main problem is a serious lack of focus and a strong tendency to ramble and meander about all sorts of stuff that has nothing to do with Star Trek, which is what the book title would imply. To top it off, his writing style is a little on the boring side, which means you will probably find yourself scanning the book. By now, there are other books that look at Star Trek and life lessons that are much better. Pick up one of those instead and skip this one. This one is not worth it, and it is a pity. I do like Star Trek, but I hate meandering, rambling writers with no apparent goal or focus in site. If this book was a blog today, it probably would not get very far.

I think we used to have it, but the way has been lost. Get a simple statement that tells who we are, what we do, and how we go about doing it. You'd think it would make sense."
