A Field Guide to the Aliens of Star Trek The Next Generation: Season 1

48 pp., 8.5"x5.5", saddle stitched

The funny, heart breaking, and insightful guide to the aliens of TNG, as told by Joshua Chapman, 7th grader, for his English class assignment. Poor Joshua obviously uses Star Trek to cope with his unstable single mother, bullies, sexual frustration, and teenage alienation (no pun intended). Finding more in common with the logical, emotionless and occasionally bewildered Data than the hundreds of aliens that look "just like regular humans", the reviewer emphasizes, in sloppy cursive, the startling similarities between fact and the best show on television. Highly recommended! Be sure to also check out Season Two!
