Look­ing for a Christmas present for a par­tic­u­larly anal Trekker? Pop this in their stock­ing.

Fea­tures 100 lists, di­vided into eight themed sec­tions: Starfleet per­son­nel, alien races, fu­ture tech­nol­ogy/ space­ships and so on.

Com­ing up with that many in­ter­est­ing lists is tricky, and a fair few – like a cat­a­logue of holodeck pro­grams – are a bit dry.

The prose would re­ally have ben­e­fited from a bit more of a sense of hu­mour.

The more en­ter­tain­ing lists tend to be more vis­ually ori­en­tated – like the ones which grab ev­ery use of the Vasquez Rocks lo­ca­tion, or dif­fer­ent ap­pear­ances by re­cy­cled props.

Favourite fact we gleaned: a green and yel­low flow­ered dress crops up in three dif­fer­ent Trek series and two films!
