Anyone that has ever performed their own car repairs is familiar with a Haynes manual. These handy manuals walk you through most common maintenance and repair procedures. Well now there's a Haynes Manual for the U.S.S. Enterprise! Although it's a funny and novel concept this book is actually jam packed with Enterprise technical information and data for the true Star Trek fan.
This book is authorized by Star Trek scenic art supervisor Michael Okuda and is packed with technical information, cut away drawings and art.
It provides in-depth information about these extraordinary ships - from Archer's Enterprise NX-01 to Captain Picard's Enterprise NCC-1701-E. You can read about histories of each vessel, technical information about their systems, and discussions of key technologies such as transporters, warp-speed travel and more. With this book you'll find out exactly what powered these ships, how they were armed, and just what it took to efficiently and skillfully operate them.
Priced at just $26.99 this makes the perfect unique and affordable Star Trek gift for the Trekkie on your shopping list. Click the image above for more information or to go order your copy today. Hurry because these are very popular and sell out nearly as quickly as they are back in stock!
