Re: FJ's significance then and now...

I remember getting the one with the cover that just said, "STAR FLEET TECHNICAL MANUAL" and nothing else. It didn't have the words "Star Trek" on it at all; there was no breaking the illusion that this was a real tech manuan Scotty may have been reading. It looked real and it probably more than anything else Trek-related -- probably even more than the actual TV episodes -- pulled me into the universe of Star Trek.
