    Just make sure it does not have ANYTHING related to JJ trek in it

      Where else do you think the 300 new pages will come from? Nothing else has been produced in the last several years. This is their chance to make some money from it. That’s all they care about, you know. So don’t buy it!

        i would rather pay for dog shit thanks.
        and enterprise ships, and non canon books as well make up the rest.

          No need to elaborate on your preference for canine waste, The Fox, just don’t buy the book..

          By the way, I’m pretty certain you can pick up dog shit for free these days, just check your local streets, parks etc.

        Since 1999? DS9, Voyager, Generations, First Contact, Insurrection, Nemesis…

        Never let it be said an opportunity to bash the Bad Robot movies goes begging, Andrew.

        An article about the Star Trek encyclopaedia, that’s an obvious article that fully warrants a quick dig don’t you know.

        A story about the new Star Trek Encyclopaedia is an obvious red flag for a quick dig don’t you know!

      Please make sure it does have EVERYTHING related to JJ Trek in it.

      What a ridiculous comment. If you dont like JJ Trek don’t buy the book mate

      • The Fox

        i wont be.

    I wish the last one had been in 2005. I would have happily picked that up. Knowing that JJ Trek will be in it next to the end if Voyager, Nemises and all of Enterprise makes this something I’ll skip. Oh well.

    I remember proudly displaying this on my coffee table back in the day. I might get the new edition purely for nostalgia – and the sheer pleasure of holding/browsing the printed page instead of staring at a screen of some type!

      Even with JJ Trek, I’ll still drop $100 for this! It reminds me of when I got the first edition of the ST Chronology in the early 90s. I loved that book.
