I bought this one because I won her TNG version. She is a great artist.

This is a great little stocking stuffer type book for the Trekkie in your life. ( )

Illustrator Jenny Parks has created a must have for Star Trek fans (the original of course!). The little book features a variety of cats portraying the various characters from the original Star Trek, including James T. Kirk and Mr. Spock. Each page gives a take the iconic characters and scenes from the series—from Kirk in the Captain's chair to Spock offering his Vulcan wisdom and Scotty trying to get the engines to function. The illustrations in this little book are wonderful—my favorite is the Scottish fold cat as Scotty the engineer. I think this is a must for Trekkie fans and those who may want to share with their soon to be Trekkie children. 3 out of 5 stars. ( )

Ok, I'm not a cat person, but I do like Star Trek. And I thought this book was great! The author did a great job with the personalities of the actors and making them cats. If you need a quick chuckle or two, pick this book up! ( )

Star Treks cats aren’t ordinary cats. They don’t chase mice; they chase Klingons. Seriously, if the Star Trek cast were cats instead of humans, this is what they would look like. The Captain looks rather arrogant and is definitely in charge. But the Vulcan cat looks like he really does know everything, but is aloof and perhaps a bit bored. A well thought-out and decidedly attractive marriage between cats and Star Trek. ( )

This book features illustrations of scenes from the original Star Trek, except that all the characters are cats. This is a ridiculous idea, and it ought to make for kind of a dumb, gimmicky book. And yet, I found it utterly, comprehensively delightful. I don't quite understand why. Is it because the cats somehow look amazingly like the characters they're portraying? (Seriously, that is the Kirkest cat that ever Kirked. And OMG, Scotty is a Scottish fold!) Is it because the illustrations are beautifully, lovingly done, with lots of fun detail? (You can just tell Bones-kitty does not like the transporter!) Is it because the artist is clearly a huge Trek fan and has chosen to illustrate some really specific moments from the series, complete with snippets of dialog, in a way that invites a fun game of name-the-episode? Is it the inclusion of the green Orion slave-cat?

I don't know. I don't know what it is. But I'm grinning like an idiot over this thing. My only complaint about it is that it's tiny, and I want more. I wonder if Jenny Parks could be persuaded to do a TNG version? ( )
