    I m a longtime trekker and some years ago I gave a speech for high school students which covered similar topics to this book The book of course is much better than my humble conference The explanations are easy to follow and the pictures are stunning A must have for any trekker or science geek Thanks to Netgalley, the author and the publisher for giving me a free ARC in exchange for a honest review

    Not being a Trekkie, I still found this book quite interesting This book is full of pictures and descriptions of technology used in Star Trek It s broken down into sections with in depth content for each invention The photos are great and placed perfectly throughout the book This book teaches you the science behind several Star Trek inventions that every Trekkie would love.

    TODAY S GUEST Ethan Siegel , astrophysicist, author, Star Trek Treknology The Science of Star Trek from Tricorders to Warp Drive by Bob Andelman I don t know if you have seen it, but the new Star Trek TV series, Star Trek Discovery , is an extraordinary piece of entertainment.Let me go a step further the sixth episode of the new series first season may just have been the best single episode of any Star Trek TV series that I have ever seen And I have seen them all, first run, going back to the or [...]

    Great nerd coffee table bookI enjoyed this book I particularly liked how Ethan Siegel compared where Star Trek was and where we are and where we will realistically be He was unhesitant to label some things as unrealistic while others as attainable He explained the science clearly and wrote in a fun way Although i received a digital galley of the book via Netgalley, I was also fortunate to receive a hard copy as a gift and I can safely say that the book is beautiful The photographs and illustrati [...]

    I ve long been a fan of Star Trek favourite series The Next Generation and so I jumped at the chance to read this ARC An interesting look at the science behind the ideas on the franchise, and also at some of the inventions it has inspired, taking in everything from the sliding doors, with that unmistakable shh sound, to warp drive technology this is a comprehensive guide Packed with photos from the different show incarnations, except the most recent one, it is a must read for any Star Trek fan T [...]

    Sci fi writings have been the dreams and places of inspiration for scientists for years past and this book shows that Star Trek is no different A look at the items from the show that have or are becoming science fact, this book is well presented and easy to navigate, it goes into depth on some of the familiar elements from Gene Roddenberry s world With many, many images to break up the science, this could almost be a coffee table book, definitely recommended.

    There have been previous attempts to use Star Trek to illustrate popular science, such as 20th Century Computers and How They Worked The Official Starfleet History of Computers which used Next Generation graphics and had Data as the author This book was a step above other attempts as it looks at where modern science is in relation to the Star Trek universe, and how far we are along to reaching some of these milestones in science It covers all of the Trek series and films including the Kelvin uni [...]

    An engaging and entertaining look at the science from Star Trek, and its real world applications Lavishly illustrated with stills from the various Trek television series and films, ranging from The Original Series to the most recent Abrams and Lin films, the book looks not only at how the technology developed over the franchise, but also how it both inspired and was inspired by real life science and technology Broken down into categories, everything from transporters to photon torpedoes, communi [...]

    I am a huge Trekkie Anyone who knows me can attest to that I grew up with Star Trek the next generation, Deep Space 9, Voyager, Enterprise and now the rebooted Star Trek I know this genre.I picked up this book for the pure science of it The content is so in depth with real situations that correlate with Star Trek technology We ve come so far, and a lot of the things we take for granted on the show, are close to becoming reality The photos are great and placed throughout the book The writing was [...]

    This is a very good look at the science as used in Star Trek in all its variations , and importantly what our current level of nous equates to So while the 3D printer is a long way off knowing which type of cup to serve tea early grey hot in, we don t have as far to go as we d fear Mind you, in so many other regards FTL travel, instantaneous communication, and so on we re just flapping a posh salt shaker over someone who might be expecting a full tricorder It ll teach the average reader a lot o [...]

    An accessible Trek History Real World Scientific AdvancesThe book begins with Space Travel Starships and ends with the personal sized item, Tricorders I m each category, we get a explanation of the subjects role history within the Trek cannon not including Discovery in this edition We then get into the scientific concepts creations within our world that relate and a rough idea of how we ve come or how far away we may be I rented this from my library, but it is a nice addition to other existing [...]

    This was a very fun and pretty informative book about STAR TREK technologies and the real life scientific theories and processes behind them, as well as real life technologies that are slowly but surely catching up with the fantasy While it was pretty heavy on the science at times, and while some of the physics stuff went right over my head, I did enjoy reading about the tech and the real life analogs Plus, lots of great pictures of STAR TREK moments AND moments in technological history.

    4.5 It was a highly engaging books that covered a number of the diverse technological advances put forth in the Star Trek series While, I enjoyed learning how we might get, from the technology level humanity is at right now, to the Star Trek levele science sometimes became a bit too in depth and I wasn t truly able to appreciate what the author was talking about Hence the 4.5 rating Otherwise, a quite enlightening enjoyable trip down Star Trek Technobabble Lane.

    Ed Fonseca
    This is a great book for anyone, Trekkie or not It breaks down a lot of the science in Star Trek and how it s influenced science in real life The book also references events along the fictional Star Trek time line that correspond to those scientific advances, which is great for hardcore Trekkies or someone new to Star Trek.

    Treknology by Ethan Wright is a free NetGalley ebook that I read in early November.A fancy cinematic picture of the technology used in Star Trek and how it is and or could be sourced from real life technology and space science, particularly cloaking devices, communicators, and transporters, just to name a few that I m still happily in the magic dark about.

    Emily
    Spoiler alert I m not a Trekkie, but I still wanted to learn about the show and what better way than learning the science behind it The photos were beautiful and everything was explained in such a way that even I could understand Kudos to the author for that This is a great addition for anyone that loves science and science fiction I would recommend this book 4.5 out of 5 stars.

    A really nice overview of various technologies used in Star Trek, where we are now, and how feasible they could become Helped me enjoy the show just a bit .

    Dispenses with too much speculation and dives right into how close modern science has gotten to many of Star Trek s most famous concepts and technologies.

    Thank you NetGalley and publisher for the opportunity to read this book This book is such and easy read for anyone interested in Star Trek, science fiction and fringe technology It has concise and short explanations of the science needed to build these future technologies and how far along are we from achieving those goals.But it left me wanting information, I felt that this is informative than explicative since the topics are not developed much Nonetheless is a short, good read.

    Treknology, had I encountered it in my youth, would have brought me to the world of Star Trek much sooner As it stands, that happened as a result of Patrick Stewart and his performance alongside William Shatner in the film Generations But that is another story.In short, I would have loved this book as a young reader, and I greatly enjoyed it as an adult reader The book uses text in a fully developed away in tandem with attractive visuals to illustrate each point explored.
