I have some friends who are having a baby in February. The father is a nice young man, but he is totally untutored and oblivious when it comes to Star Trek. This book will be a nice way for both he and his newborn daughter to learn the true way of Trek.

Everyone I know is having children - in the past 12 months, 3 of my friends have given birth and in the next 6 months, 5 more will too. It is up to me to ensure their children will be raised knowing the ways of Star Trek. Especially since there will be enough of them to form a landing party AND crew the ship.

I purchased every episode of the original series on VHS when they first became available. Then got the first DVDs. Now have the BluRays. And I coerce my 4 children into watching them with me. The 3 year old likes the show best, naturally. So, she would be thrilled to get this book!
We especially enjoy the ultimate "opposite" episode - Mirror Mirror.
