Sinopsis:

Could aliens have green blood? Why so Ferengis have such big ears? Is Commander Data really alive?

What Star Trek fan hasn't pondered such weighty questions as these? Now, two noted scientists provide all the answers as they explore the sometimes fanciful, always fascinating, biological issues raised by Star Trek's various incarnations. Entertaining, insightful, and authoritative, The Biology of Star Trek will heighten your appreciation for the mind-expanding magic of Star Trek.

Review:

Claiming inspiration from Lawrence Krauss's The Physics of Star Trek, the Jenkinses focus on the biological logic (or illogic) behind the alien ecologies in Star Trek--the original TV series and all of its sequels and movie spinoffs. The best parts are the biological bloopers, even though only a fan will truly appreciate them. For instance, how did the Klingons evolve forehead ridges between the original and the new series ... and how did planets that all look like southern California evolve such varied creatures?

The science in the book helps the authors hypothesize about how humanoid life might have evolved throughout the universe (panspermia revisited). They offer simple evolutionary theories to explain the various head shapes and behaviors of fictional alien species. An entertaining read for a Star Trek science nerd. --Therese Littleton
