This was... odd. I'm not sure what I was expecting -- maybe something cutesy? -- but it was legitimately just Star Trek Cats. Illustrations of cats reenacting famous scenes from Star Trek: The Original Series. But hey, they're excellent illustrations! Especially Spock!Cat and Kirk!Cat.

I don't even know how to rate this. I don't know why it exists, but it does what it does really well? ( )

With a book called Star Trek Cats, you have a pretty good idea what the book is about. What surprised me was how amazing the drawings were! Every page was awesome. Realistic looking cats in recognizable scenes from classic Star Trek episodes. This book is a delight for fans of cats or fans of Star Trek, and a double delight for fans of both. Highly recommended.

I was fortunate to receive a copy of this book from the publisher. ( )

Cute book, but would be better if the cats were photographed instead of drawn. Staging particular episodes was a fun idea. The breeds of cats chosen for each classic trek actor was dead on. ( )

This review was written for LibraryThing Early Reviewers.
The author took great pains to match the major Star Trek characters to cat breeds that match their ethnicity or looks. I don't know much about cat breeds except to recognize the Scottish breed that represents Scotty. Kirk seems to be a regular tom cat (pun intended?) Spock is represented by a breed with amazingly tall ears.
Each page or pair of pages is a scene taken from an episode of the series and fans should have no difficulty identifying it. I had problems with one - on pages 34-35 from episode "Amok Time". It just didn't ring a bell with me.
The one that cracked me up was the cat on the transporter pad pawing the sprinkles one sees when it is energized.
It obviously doesn't take very long to page through this little book but I had a smile on my face the whole time. ( )

Jenny Parks' Star Trek Cats features illustrations from the author reimagining scenes from seventeen episodes of the original Star Trek with cats. The episodes come from the first two seasons and the pilot, with a few scenes appearing across multiple pages. Parks' illustrations are gorgeous and each would be lovely gracing the wall of a fan of both Star Trek and cats. The attention to detail, both to the cats' appearance and behavior and to the visual aesthetic of Star Trek, is simply stunning and far better than one would expect from a novelty book of this sort. Star Trek Cats will delight fans of both of the titular subjects and makes for a lovely gift book! ( )
