Quasars. Wormholes. Cosmic string fragments. Vulcan mind melds. Bioneural gel packs. Dyson spheres. If you have ever watched a Star Trek television episode of movie, you've heard many words and phrases like these. Over its long history, the Star Trek universe has taken us to undreamed-of worlds, employing scientific concepts that often sounded like complete fantasy. After all, a six-foot-tall humanoid couldn't possibly change into a four-pound bird. Or could he...?

Star Trek Science Logs separates the fact from the fantasy. As science adviser on Star Trek: The Next Generation, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, and Star Trek: Voyager, Andre Bormanis is the man to whom the writers and directors turn every day when they want to make their future science as plausible and comprehensible as possible. And Bormanis would know: he holds degrees in physics and space policy, has conducted research and policy analysis for NASA, and has worked with many top scientists in the fields of astronomy and space science. If there is any basis in contemporary science for exotic spatial anomalies or silicon-based life-forms, Andre will find it.

Now you too can benefits from Bormanis' vast knowledge. From antiprotons to xenotransplantation, it's all in here: clear, concise, entertaining and 100 percent true (well, almost). With the best of Starfleet--Spock, Jadzia Dax, Harry Kim, Data and others--accompanying Bormanis as your guides, get ready to embark on a bold journey across the unlimited boundaries of science fact.
