it's NOT sitting on my bookshelf right now, and is NOT accompanied by

Star Trek Encyclopedia ('94)
Star Trek Chronology ('93)
Star Trek Universal Index ('94)
The Making of DS9 ('94)
Lost Voyages of Trek and TNG ('95)
Captains Logs ('93), Supplemental ('94), Supplemental II ('95)
Deep Space Log Book ('93)
Great Birds of the Galaxy ('94)
Radio Times: Star Trek 30 Years ('96)

I do NOT periodically read selections from said tomes for fun. No Sir!

I am afraid I can't do that, since I obviously don't have it and never waited weeks in anticipation of it finally arriving at my book store.
