There has never been a Star Trek book like this one. Imagined scenarios, new worlds and historic battles are all brought to life between its pages, as settings for the spectacular starships which have graced the Star Trek universe throughout all five television series. This is what happens when you turn loose some of the most talented computer generated artists in Hollywood – who also just happen to be Star Trek fans – and ask them to create images they would like to have seen on Star Trek.
Over the past seven years, wall calendars called Star Trek: Ships of the Line have displayed breathtaking art, specially commissioned for the Ships of the Line series, only to be discarded at the end of the year. To celebrate the fortieth anniversary of Star Trek, the best calendar images of Star Trek battleships have been collected together, with new additional descriptions and history to give them their proper setting in the Star Trek universe. The result is a sumptuous visual record and a magnificent reference book which any Star Trek fan would be proud to own.
