Re: Fiction eBook from Erdmann & Block!

If you want a listing of facts and details about the contents of the episodes, then The Voyager Companion covered them very well, but it suffered from a lack of behind-the-scenes analysis. The TNG one had a decent mix of episode overviews and background trivia. But Erdmann had a level of ongoing, firsthand access to the production unequalled by any Trek chronicler since Stephen E. Whitfield when he wrote The Making of Star Trek, and unlike that book it covers the entire run of the series. So it's true that "best" is a matter of opinion, but it is indisputably the most in-depth of the companion books.

^I'd say they're best known for the DS9 Companion, which is the best and most in-depth of the series-companion books.
In your not so humble opinion don't you mean.

I personally think the Voyager Companion is light years ahead of all the others.
You're joking right? All I remember from the VOY Companion is the author noting the episodes where a shuttlecraft was blown up.
Yes. I thought it was so bad I sold it after owning it a month. The DS9 one in comparison and the TNG one to a lesser extent I reread every once in a while.
