While starship captains have been exploring the final frontiers of the Star Trek universe, this book takes you for the first time to the edge of our real galaxy and beyond. Stunningly illustrated with hundreds of full-color, futuristic star charts, illustrations and astronomical photos, explore the real-life deep space destinations as seen on television and film screens.

Over its 50-year history, Star Trek has treated generations of viewers to a dazzling assortment of unforgettable images of the cosmos. Multiple star systems, alien worlds, supernova explosions, emission nebulae, and, of course, voracious black holes, just to name a few.

Star Trek- The Official Guide to Our Universe introduces you to the astronomy of Star Trek and takes you on a voyage of discovery, examining the true astronomical counterparts that can be found in the night sky. From Altair to Vega and from red giants to white dwarfs, readers can visit over 50 real celestial objects visible in the night sky, as known to the Starfleet Academy.

No warp driven starship or even a telescope required to go on these voyages, as most destinations are bright enough to be seen just with the naked eye. This guide is for anyone ready to launch their own mission into space-the final frontier. Your personal voyage to explore strange new worlds begins here.
