Star Trek Stellar Cartography: The Starfleet Reference Library by Larry Nemecek (October 9, 2018, Epic Ink) assembles ten original, never-before-seen large-format maps of the Star Trek universe. Pulled from the cartography archives of Starfleet Academy, these beautifully reproduced maps provide a rare opportunity to view the expanse of Federation space—and beyond—through the multiple lenses of the Galaxy’s key players.
Star Trek author, actor, and archivist Larry Nemecek explains the maps are “all grounded in known astronomy and physics and are based on the original, in-house charts that were prepared from the basic galaxy ‘quadrant’ layout and main empires locations.”
The maps include an ancient Vulcan map, a Klingon Empire map from the pre-Organian Peace Treaty era (in the native Klingon), an official Romulan government map of the Empire, a native Cardassian Union map from the Bajor occupation, along with Federation maps from the modern era. In addition, Nemecek choreographed the Domionin War – describing this as his “greatest contribution” in authoring the book. Housed in a handsome clamshell case and paired with a fully-illustrated reference book providing detailed information on planets, systems, and topography, this exclusive collection showcases the Star Trek universe like never before.
Larry Nemecek is an American Star Trek actor, editor, archivist, consultant, interviewer, and producer, widely known for his best-seller, Star Trek: The Next Generation Companion.
