How good would it (The Magic of Tribbles) be on an e-ink display, as the OP indicated they had received a Kindle? My guess is that the e-ink wouldn't do the photos justice.
Some of it would depend on your eReader. For instance, the Sony has 8 levels of grayscale; the Kindle and the nook both have 16.

The Sony Reader PRS-900 does have 16 shades.

As for eBook readers and Star Trek, it's a good way to easily get Star Trek books that are now out of print. All of the eBooks that S&S sell are ePub and the Kindle won't handle that. So if you have some you bought from S&S in the past and want to redownload them, forget the Kindle as a choice as they won't work. However, on a Sony Reader, they'll work very well.
