Eine wirklich gute Zusammenstellung der optischen Ausstattung der StarTrek Serien. Man sieht an wie viele Details liebevoll gedacht wurden. Es geht von sehr einfache Masken (Gorn, aber kultig) bis zu den Borg. Vielleicht etwas kurz und bei manche Beispiele hätte ich mir mehr Auswahl gewünscht. Aber in Angesichts des Preises ist das sehr gelungen. Es macht sehr viel Spaß, die einzelnen Requisiten aus den Staffeln wieder zu erkennen.

Accessible and in-depth, a real treat for trekkies new and old 17. März 2013
Von 8of5 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
The Star Trek Visual Dictionary covers the entire prime timeline Star Trek universe, or at least all the live-action TV series and films. TAS is left out, but I can understand why; it could have made the otherwise all "real" visuals inconsistent. After a forward from John de Lancie (aka Q) and a two page spread introducing the the Star Trek universe with a map of the galaxy, the book is in vaguely chronological order. Each of the series gets spreads for the hero ship, each captain, and each crew. The entire rest of the book is then arranged around the various species of the Star Trek universe, with the founding members of the Federation coupled with the Enterprise area of the book at the start, and species most strongly associated with DS9 and Voyager towards the end of the book, while the middle of the book includes everyone else, after the TOS and TNG intros. Each species gets anything from half a page, up to two two-page spreads for the major races (Vulcans, Klingons, Romulans, Borg, Dominion, and Cardassians).

In some ways this feels like a fresh take on the old The Worlds of the Federation book, which also took a species-by-species view of the Star Trek universe, although with rather more non-canon expansions in that book. The downside of this format is that a few reasonably major areas of Trek are left out; there are no references to the mirror universe, alternate timelines, or the far future of the Trek universe we have occasionally glimpsed. While these are big areas of Star Trek lore, I can imagine their omissions being an editorial choice to focus on the core prime timeline. Perhaps more notable for a starship lover such as myself is that only the TV-hero Starfleet ships get any love; while mentioned, you wont see the Enterprise-A, Enterprise-E, Excelsior or any of the minor ships of Starfleet here. Starship designs from other species are well represented however.

Indeed the choice to mostly arrange the book by species gives some of the more obscure races a chance to shine as the book explores the culture and technology of each subject it covers. One of my favourite recurring elements in the book is spotlighting alien musical instruments, from the familiar Vulcan lute, to the bizarre Klingon concertina.

I really know my Trek, so it's hard to be objective, but it feels like this would function well as an introduction to the Star Trek universe to newer Star Trek fans; covering all the major characters, species, technologies, and moments of Star Trek history. At the same time it's a real treat for those of us that are deeply familiar with Trek, thanks to the wealth of high quality imagery, particularly when it comes to props; some of which are delightfully obscure, and I'm sure have never had this level of attention in a Trek publication before. The chance to get a look at some of these alone, especially the brilliantly designed and incredibly well made props from Enterprise, are reason enough to buy this book. The production design from across the Star Trek series really gets a chance to shine here.

The author, Paul Ruditis, manages the same balancing act as the designers, in making the book both an accessible introduction to Trek, while giving the more familiar reader something interesting. Managing not too go into too much detail about subject one could easily get carried away on, while at the same time giving over room to give us paragraphs on such subjects as Human literature, the Carbon Creek incident (with one of my favourite props accompanying), and the inherent collectability the Ferengi design into their weapons to give them more of a market.

My favourite part of the text by far though, are the labels accompanying most of the images. Some are practical guides to parts of technology or biology, but many are gloriously deadpan; with Porthos labelled simple "beagle", on the same page Keiko O'Biran is used to illustrate a typical Human female, with the excellent label informing us "leggings common in women's fashion". My favourite is on one of Phlox's animal containers: "Altarian marsupial (in cage)"

At ninty-four pages this book manages to cram an impressive amount of Trek in. I feel it would be a great introduction for newbie trekkies, but also has lots of treats for the more familiar. I really hope this book is a success, as I would love to see similarly attractive and in-depth treatment to other areas of the Trekverse; perhaps a Star Trek starships guide in the same format, a look at all the lovely new designs coming out of the nuTrek films, or maybe one of DK's incredible cross section books!

Catnip for Trekkers! 31. März 2013
Von Michael OConnor - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
STAR TREK: THE VISUAL DICTIONARY is a sweeping, colorful and informative overview of the Star Trek universe. Sub-titled THE ULTIMATE GUIDE TO CHARACTERS, ALIENS AND TECHNOLOGY, Paul Ruditis' book offers up 96 pages of info and full-color photographs covering all five live-action TV series and the first 10 ST movies. Trekkers will love this one!

Arranged chronologically, Ruditis' book, published in 2013 by DK Publishing, kicks off the Star Trek magical, mystery tour with a short summary of humanity's future and ends with a two-page write-up on Species 8472 and the Hirogen. In-between those two entries are sections on the first Vulcan-Human interactions, the Andorians, the Enterprise A and D, Captains Archer/Kirk/Picard/Sisko/Janeway, Betazoids, AI, Talosians, Ferengis, Bajorans, Klingon culture, the Romulans, the Trill, Tholians, everyone's favorite villains - the Borg, etc.

Along with tons of Trek trivia, the book features loads of pix of people, starships, weapons, equipment, etc. Visually the book is a delight.

Young and old Star Trek fans will enjoy STAR TREK: THE VISUAL DICTIONARY. It offers a knowledgeable, affectionate overview of the most popular franchise in history. Recommended.

Infinite awesomeness in an infinitely cool ST resource. 4. Mai 2013
Von unicornelia - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
This book is larger than the usual DK "Eyewitness Handbook" guides, which I have always loved for their uniquely effective layouts, well-chosen images, and concise "almost-everything-you-need-to-know" summaries of each aspect of the given subject. Far more than I anticipated receiving for such a fair price, I think this is not only the perfect book for Trekkers/Trekkies/Trek fans (laying out everything for you from Andorian to Xindi!), but also for allowing non-fans to peruse to obtain a fun, reasonably easy-to-understand overview of the entire universe. (And not to *mention*, showing them what they're missing!!)

I love that this dictionary covers everything; it unites the five series in order, introducing each captain, crew, ship or space station, alien race/species, weapon, planet/location, language, event, concept, and other significant detail. As always, large, full-color photographs are given little "pointers" to label and explain certain bits. It's great to have all of the key information summed up so neatly (including, for instance, the simple explanation for the appearances of TOS Klingons!)-- very enjoyable to read through, and then use as a super-handy reference. And naturally, because it covers the entire known history of the universe from Archer's time onward (and also addresses the histories of species and worlds), it accounts for the events of the TOS and TNG movies. ;) Even a die-hard fan who can't hope to learn too much more "new" information would probably want to own this great-looking book.

So far I've found no factual errors. I did have to question the statement that joined symbionts are the dominant personality; it seems to vary. That was definitely the case with Odan (the symbiont who was seriously into Crusher on the TNG episode "The Host"), but didn't appear so for Jadzia or Ezri. (If Jadzia and Dax were about even, Ezri seemed dominant.)
Few important things are missing here. I thought that Armus would have been a good creature to include under "Alien Threats" or "Non-Humanoids." And I suppose it would have been awesome if they'd tried to span the bridge between dictionary and encyclopedia by including a few more pages, enumerating -every- last little creature/species that was seen or mentioned in a single episode--but, maybe they can save that for a revised edition someday! Yes, with very minor exceptions, this is all of Star Trek in one beautiful nutshell.

The only other things unaddressed are the brief animated series and the two TOS prequel films from J.J. Abrams, but I would not even think those latter two necessary to reference. They only show what have been accepted as "alternate universe," and therefore slightly different, younger versions of the TOS crew (not a *bad* idea, although not done exactly as I think it should have been)--who are of course already covered in this book, which reliably includes the 100% true, actual canon of the "real" timeline. (The old animated series, while a cool supplement, is not canon. I suppose the author could have devoted a page or two to summarizing it as well, but I will not fault him for not having done so.) Thus, it is quite complete. There's a wealth of lovely imagery and well-written, informative text, plus an extremely beautiful and touching foreword from John de Lancie.
