The perfect keepsake & gift for any Star Trek fan!

This beautifully printed and laminated full-size book will be signed by the author and include an autographed copy of the photo below. PLUS, you gain EXCLUSIVE access to the website AND the fascinating interviews I flew to LA to record for you.

The new, expanded 2nd edition full-length ebook---exactly the same as the printed book on the right---268 entertaining pages, PLUS gains you access to the full website and to the remarkable video interviews that will only ever be made available to anyone who buys either book.

The purchase of either book also gives you complete access to the full website, PLUS EXCLUSIVE revealing video interviews with the designer and builder of the Enterprise...and more! Easily worth the price of the book alone.

These interviews are truly unique, utterly priceless, and contain over 2 hours of captivating banter and inside info on the creation of the Enterprise never before seen and NONE of it known until now. I didn’t know 90% of this stuff! You will be among a privileged elite few. Only available to purchasers of either book. A must for anyone who loves Star Trek. The interviews will knock you out.



As a fan of Star Trek and a model builder of over 40 years I am still in awe at what you did with the Enterprise. I wish I had 1/4 of your talent! Jerry Beard, NJ
