Publisher creates 'Enterprise' manual

Oct. 29, 2010 at 5:28 PM

LONDON, Oct. 29 (UPI) -- A British publisher of maintenance books is branching into sci-fi with an owner's manual for the USS Enterprise from "Star Trek."

"The U.S.S. Enterprise Owners' Workshop Manual," a 160-page guide from the Haynes Publishing Group, contains technical specifications and in-depth drawings for any aspiring sci-fi engineer looking to strip down and reassemble their own starship, The Daily Telegraph reported Friday.

The book, written by Ben Robinson and Marcus Riley, includes input from NASA engineer Michael Okuda, who worked on "Star Trek" projects for more than 20 years.

"It's something I think people have wanted for a long time, a proper history that puts the Enterprises into context with one another and gives you the story of how they evolved, with each ship building on the last," Robinson said.
