First Star Trek Visual Dictionary details

One of the most exciting of the numerous Star Trek non-fiction books coming out soon is the first ever Star Trek book in Dorling Kindersley's lavishly illustrated Visual Dictionary series. Now details are now starting to emerge about the Star Trek: The Visual Dictionary, including a first look at the draft cover, posted on the Things From Another World listing of the book:


Amazon has also a posted a blurb, which defines what the book will cover:
Boldly go where no Trekkie has gone before. "Star Trek the Visual Dictionary" is the final frontier.

Charting each and every one of the the voyages of the starship Enterprise. Its mission: to explore everything Star Trek, strange new worlds (and old ones), to seek out every character, ship and series, to boldly go where no book has gone before. Covering all of the six television series, with full coverage of favourite characters such as Spock, Bones, Scotty and Uhura, and full-colour pictures of ships that would make James T. Kirk proud, this is the ultimate guide to "Star Trek" for any Trekkie.

Don't be a Vulcan - live long and prosper with "Star Trek the Visual Dictionary".
I'm really rather surprised. Given the market for the Visual Dictionaries tends to be quite mainstream, and that this book is coming out almost at the same time as Star Trek Into Darkness, I was expecting this to focus solely on the new world of Star Trek in the new timeline films. Maybe that will come later? Still, will be nice to see the DK treatment of Star Trek, whichever bit of franchise they are playing with.
