Synopsis: Six feature films, the wildly successful  television spin-off Star Trek: The Next  Generation, endless reruns, videotapes,  conventions, a line of best-selling novels, and William  Shatner's New York Times  best-seller Star Trek Memories have  kept the Star Trek spirit alive  and well, even 25 years after its cancellation. Now  this must-have book for all Trekkers -- which  covers every episode of the original series, the  pilot, and all six movies -- reveals all the bloopers,  continuity errors, plot oversights, equipment  malfunctions, and goof-ups that discerning, die-hard  fans love to spot, but may have missed. Written  especially for all those who find themselves  thinking, "Hey, if the transporter is broken, why  don't they just use a shuttlecraft?", this  nitpicky volume includes Kirk's toupee watch; an  examination of the logic of the miniskirted female crew  members; number of times Kirk violated the Prime  Detective and lots of trivia questions, fun facts,  quizzes, and more. Live long and nitpick.
