It all began in the mid 1960s with a brand-new, low-budget science fiction series called Star Trek. No one, not even creator Gene Roddenberry, could have foreseen how a show that was canceled after a few seasons would win the hearts of millions of devoted fans around the world. And eventually, it would spawn numerous movies, novels, comics, games, and two new television series, Star Trek: The Next Generation and Deep Space Nine -- as well as several upcoming projects still in the planning stages.

For more than a decade, Walter Irwin, G.B. Love, and their fellow explorers of the Star Trek universe have been seeking out new information and lore about this fascinating realm. From the inner workings of the world of Vulcan and its people to a closer look at the relationship between Spock and Uhura to the ongoing debate about the "old" Star Trek versus The Next Generation, here is a journey you won't want to miss, a first-class excursion stopping at many ports in the Star Trek universe.
