Sounds like it's more of a coffee-table art book than an atlas per se. I wonder how consistent it'll be with Star Charts. Strictly speaking, it wouldn't have to be, but a lot of the novels have used SC as a resource, and it'd be nice if this were a compatible resource for future novelists to draw on.
OTOH, there were some assumptions that Star Charts made that I didn't really care for, so I would have no problem seeing those revisited.

Guess that depends on which Romulans are in charge & which language they prefer .

Sure, it had some errors. Like assuming NX-01 went back to Earth after "Broken Bow" when it actually headed further out from Qo'noS, so that systems like Axanar are far closer to Earth than they should be.

There do seem to be a couple of versions of the language making the rounds, which makes your thought more cogent indeed.

Re: Larry Nemecek to announce new book

I think the articles say it includes a guide book, so there will be some background.

Apparently Literary Treks has recorded an interview with Nemecek this week (according to their Twitter), so I guess some of the questions will be answered there.

I never bought Star Charts back then, and can't find it in the Netherlands anymore. So I'm hoping this is going to be good. I'll wait for some reviews and comparising from people who have Star Charts, and depending on that I might buy it.

Well, hopefully, if the publisher gets a good return from this one, they'll consider doing more of them.

The cleverest fans bought extra copies of "Star Charts", judging by the current Amazon prices.

Over the years, I've managed to buy several highly discounted sets of Bantam's "Star Trek Maps" - some our club used as raffle prizes and charity auction items - and they always reaped plenty of profit @$4.00 each remaindered.

Re: Larry Nemecek to announce new book

^^^^
I've managed to glom on to two set of the Star Trek Maps. The set I bought way back when it first came out, and another in much better condition that I keep stashed away someplace safe. I still prefer it's depiction of the Trek universe to the other maps that have been published since. The Star Trek Star Charts were spiffy in their own right, though, and i do plan to buy a copy of this new set when it is published.
