Star Trek

Ships of the Line

They dared to risk it all in a skiff of reeds or leather, on a ship of wood or steel, knowing the only thing between them and certain death was their ship. To explore, to seek out what lay beyond the close and comfortable, every explorer had to embrace danger. And as they did so, what arose was a mystical bond, a passion for the ships that carried them. These vessels have become the icons of mankind´s desire to rise above the everyday, to seek out and make the unknown known. And these ships that travel the stellar seas have stirred the same passions as the ones that floated in the oceans.

While every captain has wished that their starship could be outfitted in the same manner as the sailing ship H.M.S. Beagle-without weapons-that proved untenable. From the start, Starfleet realized that each vessel, due to the limited range of the early warp engines, must be able to stand alone against any attack. Thus arose the idea, taken from the days of wooden sailing ships, that every Starfleet vessel must stand as a ship of the line. Through the actions of their captains and crews, countless starships have taken on that role. Here we remember some of those ships and their heroic crews.

In celebration of one of science fiction´s most beloved franchises, this updated edition of the acclaimed Ships of the Line hardcover collection now includes more than 75 additional images brought together for the first time in book format-spectacular renderings featured in the highly successful Star Trek: Ships of the Line calendar series. With text by Star Trek´s own Michael Okuda, the story of each of these valiant starships now comes to life.
Portrait
Doug Drexler and Margaret Clark both grew up on Long Island, New York. At the very same time, they became fans of Star Trek: The Original Series. Fate being what it was, neither knew the other at the time, though they were mere miles apart. Doug left for California. Margaret stayed. Their lives intersected when Doug began working on a television show called Star Trek: The Next Generation and Margaret began editing Star Trek books. It was the beginning of a beautiful friendship.

Michael Okuda was hired to design control panels for Star Trek: The Next Generation. At the time, he was living in Hawaii. He flew to Los Angeles for what he was told would be a quick, two-week job. He hasn´t left yet.
