No hamsters were harmed in the making of this movie.

Besides, Scotty was working with tribbles as a viable alternative.
Higher reproductive qualities and more easily replaceable.

So long as it's better than the TNG Tech Manual. Not that it was Gawd Awful, but the TOS Manual actually had a "tech feel" to it. Plus it had the ships of the fleet, not just details of the Enterprise.

Aww, who am I kidding, when it comes out, I'll buy it. I may not like it, but I'll buy it....

I agree. Like Steve I have a first addition original from back in the year and I have the TNG TM. Can't wait for a new one. And the Making Of book.

Cool, thanks NCC. From where did you get that info?

Is that the same as the Haynes manual they were talking about elsewhere?

To a certain extent I am kind of curious about this.
Especially your point about including other ships (ones we've seen).
Don't care about specifics (please no lists of ship names! or any of that crap), but some nice views and maybe some artwork would be neat. Sort of a coffee table book and art book rolled into one.

As for the "tech feel", bleh. I'd rather they stayed away from that minutiae stuff completely.

Someone did make some models of the other ship types that are really interesting. I'm posting some of the better angles.

WHOOOAH.....I want those ships!!!! Those are so COOL!!!
I better upload some pics of my ST XI Saladin-class and upside-down Kelvin!

Even if my models are just 2-D cardboard cutouts, they're still cool concept designs!

These are paper models.
They seem to be scaled to about 3-4 inches or so.

His other galleries have classic Trek ships too.
Kinda neat really.

You could really build a fleet for some wargaming with those.
Which frankly is why they caught my interest.

Take those, plug in the vastly simpler Starfight rules (StarFleet Battles super-light) and whoo-hoo.
