As a fan of Star Trek since having first seen the episode "Devil in the Dark", Alva Underwood enjoys reading and writing about the world of the twenty-third century. She provides in this second reference a wealth of information about that world glimpsed in the original seventy-nine episodes. This reference continues the task of providing a reference for the second set ofnove1s: 1980-1983. Here is a more complete biography of Kirk, Spock, McCoy, Scotty, Uhura, Sulu, and Chekov and tantalizing bits of information about many aliens, more than the TV series could offer. Did you know that a Rigellian bloodworm comes in sizes ranging from 0.5 centimeters long to one that challenges a Terran adult python? Or that Spock was a pirate and that he served time at the Minos prison? That the crew are periodically subjected to a Sigmund? Do you know Kirk's favorite saying about being fooled? This second reference, a must have for the serious reader, continues the work begun in the first, and its intent is that it be a reference tool for the continued enjoyment of this fascinating world first conceived by Gene Roddenberry and so ably continued in the many novels.
