(written from a Production point of view)
Star Trek Maps is a set of four maps and an Introduction to Navigation booklet.
Possibly the most technical Star Trek book ever produced, the booklet introduces the reader to galactic coordinates and basic vector calculus. The maps themselves are well researched and properly projected to 2D. The maps also include a list of Federation members and an overview of various planets visited in the original series.
A copy of the Maps was on display at the Smithsonian Institution's 1992 Star Trek exhibition.
