    If this is like what I think it sounds like, this is already an early contender for the best Star Trek book of 2014 -- Fun With Kirk & Spock.

    See Spock! See Spock run! Run, Spock, run!

    There was "A Star Trek Primer" as an extensive section of the MMPB, "Startoons", a collection of SF media visual gags edited by Joan Winston (Playboy Press, 1979). This was a commercial version of a fanzine edition of the primer, so names had to be changed, eg. Christine Chapel, pursuing her Vulcan with a butterfly net, had to become "Christmas Chippie".

    Its a kid's book. I don't have kids so I doubt I would buy it. Trek can't get sophisticated expensive cartoons like the clone wars so we settle with this.

    You say that as if you're unaware of the many SW products out there targeted at small children.

    I know that I've jokingly thought about writing a D&J style ST book (if I were to ever write any book that would get published), but now somebody has actually gone and written one? :wtf:

    Oh, well, I hope to get it when it comes out. If I do, it'll be the fastest time for me for a ST book from release to finished reading. :rommie:

    (I'm a very slow reader and haven't read very many post-2000 ST books.)

    Oh, no. You'll breeze through The Star Trek Book of Opposites in less than two minutes. It's a 24-page board book. It's really cute. I gave one to a friend's infant daughter last year, since she's determined to raise that baby right. :)

    So this seems to have gotten a new cover in the interim:

    Bullshit. You'd be buying it for yourself. Lie to yourself if you must, but don't lie to us.

    It's a parody of a kid's book.

    I expect it will be treated fairly seriously -- a "Fun with Dick and Jane" book, but done in a Star Trek style.

    I don't expect it to be something like Go the Fuck to Sleep where the kids book tropes are bent all out of proportion.
