Previews of new Star Trek lists and science books

Previews for two forthcoming Star Trek non-fiction books have been released, continue below to check out the new science book. But first...

Star Trek: The Book of Lists is due out from Harper Design in November. The book is written by Chip Carter (who previously brought us Obsessed with Star Trek and the Miniature Editions series), and as you can see below takes a decided light-hearted approach to listing, from a largely real-world point of view, with lists including times when Kirk's shirt was ripped, reuses of costumes and starship miniatures, and examples of difficult technobabble.

I love that the preview pages released are photos of the actual book rather than just digital pages:







Taking things a little more seriously, Ethan Siegel has written Treknology: The Science of Star Trek from Tricorders to Warp Drive, which will be published by Voyageur Press in October.

The publisher and Amazon have released several preview pages from the book, including those below. The book is split into five broad categories, coving starships, defense, communications, computers, medicine, and miscellany lumped together as "civilian technology".
