    An unbelievable read. I actually tried some of the recipes inside and they were brilliant! Even if you are not a Star Trek fan, (I admit it...I am)you will find recipes worth enjoying.

    Fun for the fans, but as a cookbook, it's just average.

    There are some real gems in this book, particularly the recipes provided by the cast and crew (Robert Picardo's penne with asparagus is a regular meal for me now). However, equally, some of the selections are a dubious and the cooking instructions could've done with a bit more editorial care in places. Be warned: the chili pepper ratamba stew is a high-grade lachrymatory agent. Satisfyingly rounded out by background on how the prop cuisine was actually created for the show.

    It's sooooo hard to find a reliable Klingon Blood Wine recipe these days! An absolutely fabulous concept. I'm glad Neelix (Er, Ethan Phillips) had the gumption to throw these recipes together, alongside meticulous research into the appearances of food stuffs in all of the series, and even a few recipes from actual Star Trek actors. I lift my glass of Tranya to you, sir! In addition to a deplorable lack of photos, this book also suffers slightly in its organization: I really like the organization b It's sooooo hard to find a reliable Klingon Blood Wine recipe these days!

I lift my glass of Tranya to you, sir! In addition to a deplorable lack of photos, this book also suffers slightly in its organization: I really like the organization by Star Trek series, but I would have appreciated organization by food type. I wanted to make a dessert the other night, and it took me ages to settle on Picard and Troi's Earl Grey Chocolate Cake (good, but a tad sweet for my tastes). Perhaps a hybrid version could keep its current arrangement, but have colored tabs for different food types? I know there was probably a budget for this, so that may be out of the question. Even so, I look forward to packing Picard's Teatime Sandwiches for many a work day. Buy this title from Powell's Books.

    A book filled with delicious recipes, that simultaneously caters to my deep-seated love of (almost) all things Star Trek? How could I go wrong here? (As a delightfully nerdy aside, for the first birthday I had while we were together, my boyfriend made me a birthday dinner of recipes taken exclusively from this book. Counselor Troi's chocolate raspberry cake was shaped like the eponymous pastry from the game Portal)

    I loved it. I have made a few of the recipes. Eventually I will try more. No Ferengi food though. Although I love the Ferengi. This book is absolutely wonderful if you are a Star Trek fan. They have recipes from original season through all.

    I know it's probably cheesy but I just finished watching the entire Voyager Series and really enjoyed it. So, as a cookbook collector I like books from places I've been or movies or shows I enjoy. Fun.

    You will need a bread machine for some of the recipes. Did I like it? Somewhat. Would I reread it? Maybe. Would I recommend it? Not without trying some of the recipes.
