Summary Edit

From the book jacket
ONE KID'S CONTINUING MISSION: CATALOG ALL ALIEN LIFE FROM STAR TREK: THE NEXT GENERATION.
These are the voyages of Joshua Chapman. In 1990 at 11 years old, he wrote a field guide to the alien races of Star Trek: The Next Generation season one for school. He continued the project through his awkward teen years and into reluctant adulthood.
Boldly go from season to season and learn about Star Trek: TNG aliens, from Acamarians to Zibalians. Explore strange new feelings, like Joshua's obsession with Data, and Joshua's angst toward his mother, who's more terrifying than a Yridian's face. Engage... with humanity at its weirdest.

Background information Edit

  • The author commented; "["Next Generation"] is a show written about a utopian society by imperfect people, who, as such, cannot help but let their own sort of biases creep into the show. The huge human exceptionalism of Star Trek and the Federation is one of the reasons that I like Deep Space Nine a lot more. It looked at the experience of other alien species in a way that was respectful." [1]
