Famed for its original storylines, endearing and complex characters as well as the sheer enjoyment of watching, Star Trek is a serious hobby for some, a part-time job for others, and a rich source of fun for all. On Board The U.S.S. Enterprise is the golden ticket for a once-in-a-lifetime, access-all-areas personal tour of the fabled corridors of the U.S.S. Enterprise, deconstructed with all the seriousness and depth of an equivalent guide to the Titanic. Captain Picard's Starship Enterprise has become the enduring image of Star Trek: TNG, and this is the legend at the centre of this title. Contents The enclosed CD-ROM contains a 3D tour of much of the U.S.S. Enterprise, which has been created in close dialogue with the creators of the Star Trek sets. The Star Trek franchise's exclusive, cordoned-off vaults have been fully explored to illustrate the inside of the craft to loving levels of detail that are unmatched even on the TV show. In the book, replete with original commentary, chapters touch upon the origins of the U.S.S. Enterprise, why and how the Enterprise was built, star charts and navigation, the warp core, power generation and Faster Than Light propulsion systems, technology and equipment, teleportation and turbolifts, living quarters, the Bridge, attack and defence systems (including tractor beams, cloaking, photon cannons and force fields), the sick bay, and more.
