Comments to eBook Star Trek Vault: 40 Years from the Archives

As someone who can claim that he owns almost every single non-fiction book about the making of Star Trek ever published, I can say that this is definitely not one of the best, and in fact if you are like me and DO own most of the "about Star Trek" books, you could probably even skip this one. Information-wise, this book tries to cram the stories of all the Star Trek series, movies, and even merchandising, but unfortunately with so much to tell, it doesn't amount to much information at all. I would think that to pull off such a huge task successfully you would have to divide it into several books, much like Marc Cushman's "These Are The Voyages" series is attempting to do. (As of this writing, there is only the first season published of that title). But like another reviewer stated, it seems like this book is just skimming the surface of all things Trek. Just sampling the tip of each incarnation's iceberg, without even coming close to telling the whole story, especially when so much of it focuses on merchandising material from the series.

There are so many books, written by so many people (cast members, producers, writers, fans, even stuntmen) and each of these books have a unique perspective and a slightly different story to tell. If you want to know about budgets and production problems you could read Justman's and Solow's book, for example.
But this book seems to lack direction, just a mish-mosh of information, pictures and reproduced items (such as reproduced banners, blueprints, party invitations, and collectable baseball-type cards neatly tucked into pockets glued on to the pages. A somewhat unique idea amongst Trek books but still not enough to feel satisfied when you are finished. I came away feeling that each chapter devoted to one Star Trek TV or movie series was way too short, and a new chapter began before you even realized it
The quality of the colored pictures are great, but again most of the pictures are printed in other Star Trek books or even can be downloaded online from one of the many Star Trek fan sites.

With the exception of the merchandising pictures and reproductions, there is really nothing new to see here. And even many of those reproductions can be found in another book called "Star Trek: The Complete Unauthorized History", another so-so book about behind the scenes Star Trek. Recommendations, Mr. Spock? The previously mentioned "These Are The Voyages", "Captain's Logs", or the classic "The Making of Star Trek", all do a better job of telling the Star Trek story. But if you're a collector, like me, you'll probably end up purchasing it anyway, browse through it once or twice and stick in on your bookshelf in between the other Trek books you have.

'Star Trek Vault' is everything that anyone could want in a coffee table book about Star Trek. It is big on photos and memorabilia, but has just enough descriptive text to make it interesting. It doesn't go into the detail that the avid Star Trek fan might want, but it tells enough of the story to explain why the Star Trek franchise is the greatest TV entertainment of all time. Each series (including The Animated Series) and both sets of movies (Original and Next Generation) are explored, and some great photos are revealed both of the characters and the sets that the programs were filmed upon. Interspersed within the chapters are a discussion of the associated memorabilia for each show, and the author even provides some 'faux' examples of some of them, including a Star Trek Coloring Book.

I have been a Star Trek fan my entire life and this book does the franchise justice. It's highly readable, enjoyable, and well worth the investment. I would highly recommend it to fans and newbies alike.

This book is absolutely gorgeous. I am a big Star Trek fan so I was simply mesmerized by the pretty dust cover. This book contains new things to see about ST. It is not your typical rehashing of the same old info and photos. New fresh, exciting photographs with quick info about them. It's new and current which meant it even covered my personal favorite, Enterprise. The nice part is that the author even includes souvenirs and pull outs, now that's different!

This is the perfect coffee table book. The cover gets the people to look and the inside gets them to talking.
Gee, and you thought you were the only Trekkie in the room. ;)

I loved this book so much I even wrote the author for an autograph, which he obliged. Mr. Tipton is just as awesome as Star Trek Vault.

While I wouldnt call the book essential, the pics of the star trek memorabilia were great fun to see. The text is fine though the author has to carefully dance around the issue that some of the later TV versions of Star Trek were not great. And a couple of the Star Trek movies were dreck (Nemesis). But the author cannot say anything like that in a book meant for fans, so the text can be "fluffy." It is understandable that the book centers on the positive.

This is not a "EVERYTHING STAR TREK" book. If there is such a book out there it's probably a big,thick book. Or maybe
volumns would be needed to cover everything Star Trek. I am pleased with the book. The book mainly touches on all the
Star Trek series and the movies but at best it just scratches the surface. So given the contents I give it four stars.
Again Amazon did it's ususal good job of getting the item to me in a timely manner. As always I use the free Super
Saver shipping. Again good job.
