Why'd they publish this book? 22 février 2013
Par Storm - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
To call this book a major disappointment would be an understatement. The entire thing reeks of a money grab in anticipation of the next JJ Abrams movie.

First thing you should notice about the product description is that it says "48 pages". When you get the book, it only goes to 40 pages - so I guess they're including the table of contents, the book jacket, and the filler pages. If you cut out all of the fluff and include the introduction, this book starts on page 5 and ends on page 40. That's right, approximately 35 pages.

Now, I'd be ok with 35 pages if they were awesome. Unfortunately, this book is more like an episode of Pop-up Video. Each page is a double-page shot from the show overlaid with smaller window images with blurbs of information. As for the type and depth of information, here's an excerpt:

Captain Jean-Luc Picard
The commanding officer of the Starship Enterprise-D is Captain Jean-Luc Picard. A native of LaBarre, France, on Earth, Picard dreamed of exploring the cosmos ever since he was a child. Even as a Starfleet cadet, he attracted the notice of Admiral Hansen, who correctly predicted that Picard would be one of the service's rising stars. Picard's brilliant, deeply ethical leadership has been a key factor in the successful completion of many missions."

That's as deep as the information entries go.

With Michael Okuda's name on the front cover, if you were hoping for an updated Star Trek The Next Generation: Technical Manual, you're going to be sorely disappointed. As for the "Breathtaking 3D Tour" - it's an HTML file loaded with a Flash interface which just loads five or six sections of the ship for you to look around in. Very similar to what was included in the Star Trek Omnipedia. I'd only consider it "Breathtaking" if you're easily amused and have a large piece of eggplant stuck in your frontal lobe.

So, who is this for?

If you have a very young child - probably around the age of 10 or younger - who's getting into ST:TNG, this might be a good buy for them. The pictures are very colorful, the words easy to understand, and the information is given in short bursts - no long, drawn-out paragraphs.

For the adult - skip this unless you're a die-hard fan who just has to have every single book published, or if you found it in the dollar bin - which is where I'm predicting this particular book will end up relatively quickly.

I would not recommend this 23 février 2013
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
I was very disappointed with this one. The information is very shallow and the CD not all that great. The 3-D element on the CD is basically a Flash Panorama and html. There are a small handful of locations in which you can simply pan around and look, zoom in and out. One or two hot spots exist in each location that when selected put you at that location and change your POV. You do not walk around or have any free movement at all. A small sound effect file is played at most locations and loops, bridge sounds, engine sounds, etc. There is no video at any point. Total size of the media is approximately 102 megabytes. Given the authors I was really expecting much more.

NCC-1801-D? What? 14 mars 2013
Par Michel Yeager - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
I'm so disappointed its not even funny. There are inaccurate things with the illustrations all throughout. The biggest thing I have ever see in the CD or the book was unforgivable. So on page 19 if you look at the Master System Display you will see that the registry number is off! Like WHAT? NCC-1801-D!

Also when you look at the foldouts of the Enterprise you will see where they are pointing to certain objects on the Enterprise explaining what it is. Like pointing to the sensor array that wraps all around the Enterprises saucer section and telling you its a Phaser... Yes.. They got that wrong. There is so much more they got wrong can you spot them all. I am just disappointed. I don't think that the author even looked at this. Other then that its a great book to give to your toddler if you want to induct them into Star Trek at an early age...

Skip this book and save your money for something else. Like a dog toy! for your Star Trek collection because thats what this feels like.

Pretty disappointing overall 8 mars 2013
Par James - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
The positives: Book is very colourful, it's Next Gen, the 3d models of the sets are quite nicely done.

The negatives:
Oh boy, ok new paragraph.

As mentioned before the information is excruciatingly elementary. It reminds me of a Star Trek website from the early 1990's. If you've seen all the episodes you've seen almost all the images in this book as most of them are just screen caps. DVD quality by the looks of things. Other images include press and prop photos that have been infinitely reproduced all over the internet. There are also a few wireframe screen caps of the sets on the CD, partly spoiling the 3d tour you're about to be disappointied by.

Now for the 3d "tour". First, it has to be 3d as for some insane reason they destroyed all the television sets for the terrible movie Star Trek: Generations. One of Hollywood's greatest losses. The book's instructions betray that no one even bothered to include an install program on the disk. They helpfully inform you to just copy the folder labelled "STAR TREK" (the originality here is killing me) onto your computer. Or anyone else's for that matter, it doesn't seem like they much care.

Personally once i got into the 3d "tour" i was presented with a HTML side-on view of the enterprise in my browser where i could select to tour the enterprise! (as long as i only wanted to tour five rooms). I chose the bridge and was presented with an admittedly very nice 3d render of the command centre we all know and love. Someone spent a lot of time on these sets. Its a shame that you can only stand in a couple of areas and "zoom" (read - crop and expand). Absolutely nothing is interactive in any way shape or form. The other sets are equally well crafted and completely as useless. They even have a beautiful reproduction of the corridor set that you can only exit from.

The cd provided me with six and a half minutes mild entertainment. The book itself has no redeeming features at all.

Disappointing and Pointless 10 mars 2013
Par AJ Halliwell - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
Woah, a new Star Trek reference book I had heard nothing about!? I quickly grabbed this off the shelves. You really shouldn't judge a book by it's cover.

At only 40 pages, it's the Shortest Star Trek related (non-comic) book I've ever seen. Those pages don't really offer anything of content except newly produced 3D renderings of interiors. I would get more value googling "Enterprise D interiors" honestly.

The CD was really the most disappointing part for me. I was okay keeping the book to support Star Trek products, because they seem to be so few and far between in comparison to the Star Wars media empire. But the CD: COME OOOOOON. After owning "Captain's Chair" back in the 2000s, and playing both "Star Trek: Elite Force" games: I know computing has gotten to the point where they can store some pretty awesome stuff on a small CD. Nothing was interactive, you couldn't move, it was like a really sad Google Street view. This CD could have been a potential redeeming feature: new interview, interact with the buttons, show us mentioned-but-not-seen parts of the ship. Nothing.

I plan on returning this book tomorrow. Very disappointed the awesome Okuda's allowed their name to be connected to this project.
