"all I ask is a tall ship, and a star to steer her by."
From the earliest days of explorations, there has always been one tried-and-true way to navigate through uncharted reaches and one to find the way home -- the stars. Ancient mariners prized their star charts, knowing that they could guide them safely into a friendly port or lead them to the reaches of the mysterious East. Modes of transportation have changes but the stars are still our constant. When man took his first step into space armed with the very latest in computers, he took with him the same tool for reading the stars that the men who sailed under canvas carried.
When humans launched the first ship designed for long-range missions into the deep waters of interstellar space, the Vulcan High Command provided their star charts for the Enterprise™. But Jonathan Archer was not content with relying on the known. Although he used the Vulcan charts, he also added to them, and greatly expanded Starfleet's knowledge of the galaxy. Every generation of starship captain that followed has built on Archer's first steps.
Follow the course set by Archer, Kirk, Picard, Sisko, and Janeway. Relive their extraordinary adventures as you find here, for the first time, the star maps that chart the routes these famous explorers took...
See how far Earth is from Vulcan or plot a course to the Klingon homeworld with these fabulous full colour maps of the Star Trek universe. Reproduced in stunning colour, this is the definitive guide to the Star Trek universe. From Qo'noS to Bajor, from Vulcan to the farthest reaches of the Delta Quadrant, these charts reveal the location of every major Star Trek world and star system. In addition to maps of the stars themselves there are mission charts for each of the main starships featured in the various Star Trek series, from the Enterprise commanded by Captain Kirk in the original classic series to the USS Voyager on her epic journey of exploration, and back to the very first Enterprise of all as seen in the new Star Trek series, ENTERPRISE.
