Re: Do You Believe the Official Chronology?
It's quire a monumental piece of work. I liked the FASA timeline from the 80s but obviously that's out of date anyway since it was based on the Spaceflight Chronology (Prob my fav Trek book ever along with The Making of ST(60s), World of ST, and the first Art of ST book. I do accept the new Chronology but if I were to give people relatively new to Trek a primer, I'd show them the brand new Visual Dictionary.
It is far better to grasp the universe as it really is than to persist in delusion, however satisfying and reassuring. Carl Sagan
