Default New Starfleet Technical Manual?

I still have my original Starfleet Technical Manual from when it first came out. Now that we have a fresh new Star Trek to carry us forward, how about a revised Starfleet Technical Manual to go along with it? It would go a long way to help establish canon for the new Star Trek universe. I assume the script writers were probably given guidelines about what is canon now with this new Star Trek describing the ships, characters, etc. just like they did with the original series? Also, I think a new Star Trek Blueprints packet would be cool too, with scale ship(s) and set plans.

You don't need any thought to be put into a popcorn movie, from what I've read in the forum, the warp core is a hamster in a wheel.

Oh god no! They ejected the hamsters into the black hole?!



(multiple hamsters since there were multiple cores ejected)

Yeah, but don't worry - they'll pop out the other side, back into the prime universe, bald, tattooed and thirsting for revenge!

I would also be interested in these! I also still have all my (and/or my dad's) old Star Trek manuals, blueprints, maps, etc. I was impressed with the latest design of the Enterprise, I'd love to see it on paper.

Another thing that would be cool is a CD or DVD like they did with the Star Trek: The Next Generation Interactive Technical Manual. That was pretty cool.

Love the interactive tech manual I have that and all the printed manuals too, wonderful stuff.

Now that we have DVDs instead of CDs... how about an interactive tech manual for ALL of the ships

Have you tried the tour on this site? It looks cool but I didn't go through all the rigmarole to get started.

are you talking about the thing with the webcam and printer? I don't have a printer, nor do I have a webcam.
