Organised into categories such as friendship, diplomacy and management, Quotable Star Trek demonstrates the truly universal appeal of Gene Roddenberry's extraordinary creation. Words of wit, wisdom and compelling insight applicable to everyday life have been selected from over 500 hours of television episodes and eight Star Trek motion pictures.
For more than thirty years the Star Trek universe has used its much-loved characters and consistently literate scripts to argue thought-provoking ideas, to tackle moral dilemmas, to deal with issues of humanity and responsibility, or to come up with intriguing solutions to seemingly intractable problems. Quotable Star Trek selects over 300 pages of gems which together encapsulate that unique and inimitable spirit.
