"A Wagon Train to the Stars." That was how writer/producer Gene Roddenberry pitched his 1964 Star Trek pilot, The Cage. More than 30 years later, his exploration continues. Across all quadrants of the galaxy, to worlds known and unknown, the Star Trek universe has expanded beyond any television creator's wildest dreams. Through four hit television series and eight epic features the cast, directors, writers and producers have remained loyal to Gene Roddenberry's original premise and Star Trek continues to blaze its own trail.
Now, the interactive reference to the entire Star Trek history -- thus far -- is available in a 4-CD-ROM set. Building on the popular Star Trek Omnipedia, this expanded database includes:
This 4-disk set is fully interactive, featuring an engaging new interface that makes the entries accessible to the casual browser. Star Trek Encyclopedia is organized around three major sub-heads:

This new version of the Star Trek Encyclopedia is a reissue of the 1997 edition, plus a 128-page supplement of additional material that updates Deep Space Nine to the end of its run and Voyager to midway through season five. It also covers the movie Star Trek: Insurrection. The supplement is as meticulously detailed as the rest of the volume, listing such fascinating trivia as chadre kab (Seven of Nine's first meal), 'Kahless and Lukara' (a Klingon opera), and voraxna (a Cardassian poison), as well as all the new characters and species. Appendices include illustrations of starships, cast and crew listings, a historical timeline, and a bibliography. All photographs and illustrations (except for a few historical shots) are in color. The encyclopedia was devised in part to help production staff on the various Star Trek TV series to keep up with the ever-increasing level of detail generated by over 30 years of creative effort. It is an excellent reference volume and, whether you want to settle an argument or write a novel, this book will answer your questions. But beware: the extensive cross-referencing leads to curious time-distortion effects, in which the unwary reader, dipping in to settle a single query, encounters an irresistible urge to browse further, during which hours of normal time can pass in the wink of an eye. --Elizabeth SourbutAbout the Author:
