Default Got my copy of "Ships Of The Line" today.

There are really awesome starship pictures in it. Almost every Fed class is represented in some way. The version of the Bonaventure class is THE most awesome picture of that class i have ever seen. If it isn't canon, it ought to be! Nice NX-01, Constitution, Voyager, Galaxy, and Constellation pics as well. It was so beyond worth the twenty smackers (and i got it in hardback!) i paid for it. I highly recommend this book.

I recommend it as well! Did you notice the little Apollo LM on the cover?

I was actually disappointed by the size of the book when I first saw it. Compared to what you get when you buy the larger calendar versions, I thought it chinzy. So I passed on buying the book and rued the years when I didn't buy the SOTL calendar. But I'm glad I have most of them.

I love that little book! Everytime I stop by Borders I always sit and take a look in it. Great stuff!

I've been meaning to pick that up.

Personally, though, my favourite book (though it's not entirely a book, strictly speaking) is the Star Trek: Blueprints thing for the Enterprise-D. Great stuff. I've been meaning to have them scanned, but they're so damn big.

I would like to have blueprints of every single Star Trek starship. That would make me very, very happy.
