USS Enterprise IncrediBuild coming in June
Star Trek is getting the “IncrediBuild” treatment. The Star Trek: U.S.S. Enterprise Book and 3D Wood Model, a project first announced here on TrekMovie last summer, has now been revealed.
Like with their Star Wars and other model books, Insight’s Star Trek IncrediBuild combines a full-color book chronicling the history of the original USS Enterprise, written by veteran Trek author Dayton Ward, along with laser-etched components for a wood model of the ship.
The USS Enterprise IncrediBuilds book and model will be released on June 12, with a retail price of $16.99. It can be pre-ordered now on Amazon.
Autobiography of Mr. Spock coming in October
Titan books is set to release the third in their series of Star Trek “autobiographies.” First revealed here at TrekMovie last year, David A. Goodman’s Autobiography of Mr. Spock is now available for pre-order. The book will be available on October 16 in hardcover for $24.00 and also on eBook for $12.97.
Here is the official synopsis and cover:
The Autobiography of Mr. Spock tells the story of one of Starfleet’s finest officers, and one of the Federation’s most celebrated citizens. Half human and half Vulcan, the book, written in Spock’s own words, follows his difficult childhood on the planet Vulcan; his enrollment at Starfleet Academy; his adventures with Captain Kirk and the crew of the Starship Enterprise; his diplomatic triumphs with the Klingons and Romulans; and his death and amazing resurrection on the Genesis Planet. We meet the friends he’s made, the women he’s loved, and experience the triumphs and tragedies of a life and career that spanned a century. His struggle to find his place in the universe is one we can all relate to.
About the Author: David A. Goodman was born in New Rochelle, New York. After graduating from the University of Chicago, he moved to Los Angeles in 1988 to write on the television sitcom The Golden Girls.
