Nemecek’s New Star Trek Stellar Cartography BookPosted by T'Bonz - 28/06/13 at 10:06 am
A new book from Larry Nemecek will be of interest to Trek fans who have an interest in cartography.
Star Trek Stellar Cartography: The Starfleet Reference Library will debut in December.
In Star Trek Stellar Cartography: The Starfleet Reference Library,” beautifully reproduced maps provide a rare opportunity to view the expanse of Federation space (and beyond) through the multiple lenses of the Galaxy’s key players—visually expanding the Star Trek universe in never-before-seen ways.”
The book was compiled by Star Trek expert Larry Nemecek, and was illustrated by Ian Fullwood, Ali Rees and Geoffrey Mandel.
Some of the ten large-format maps in the book include: “an ancient Vulcan map, a Klingon Empire map from the pre-Organian Peace Treaty era (in the native Klingon), an official Romulan government map of the Empire, a native Cardassian Union map from the occupied-Bajor era, along with Federation maps from the modern era.”
“I do not know what is cooler,” said Nemecek, “that we finally got to do evolved-canon star map posters suitable for framing, that we got to do starmaps from not only various historical eras but from various alien origins … or that I got to update and ‘massage’ some background gaps that have bugged canon fans like me for years.”
Star Trek Stellar Cartography: The Starfleet Reference Library, forty-eight pages in length, comes in a tri-fold clamshell case. The ten 24″ by 36″ maps are removable.
