After the success of the first book, Star Trek Cats, we couldn’t wait to get our paws on the sequel. Like its predecessor, Star Trek: The Next Generation Cats is a thoroughly enjoyable picture book full of, you guessed it, Star Trek and cats.
The book is organized much like the first, TOS-themed edition. A two-page spread in the front shows off all of our favorite Enterprise D characters in the form of their feline counterparts. Author and artist Jenny Parks once again nails it with her pairings of cat breed and coloring (and goofy expressions) with the personalities of the bridge crew. Although, I must admit that Picard as a hairless cat makes me slightly uneasy.
And what would a book about our favorite Star Trek TNG characters be without some of our favorite scenes? Parks hit most of TNG’s fan favorites, including scenes from “Darmok”, “Cause and Effect”, “Relics”, “Rascals”, “Encounter at Farpoint”, “The Game”, and “All Good Things…”. Some of our favorite guest stars make an appearance, too, including Commander Sela and Sarek.
Star Trek TNG Cats retails for $14.95, but is on sale at Amazon for $10.50. And, it is well worth the purchase price. Get it for that special cat-loving Trekkie in your life!
