display_description The characters of the Star trek television programs and movies go boldly among the stars-- but how much of what they tell us is accurate? Fazekas compares the Federation's technology with our own, and provides scientifically accurate accounts of the realms and star charts that the Enterprise uses to explore the solar system, nebulae, and more.
