    1. Despite being a TREK fan, I found this book to be a double waste of time.First of all, there are enough glaring plot holes and discrepancies in almost any classic TREK episode to make nitpicking seem superfluous And nitpicking is definitely the right word for it, since the book mainly obsesses over minor continuity errors that you d never notice unless on the lookout for them Personally, I don t understand the enjoyment in picking apart a 50 year old TV show, so this book obviously wasn t writte [...]

    2. In precisely the same vein as his Next Generation Trekker s Guide which I reviewed here review show only Farrand has finally managed to dial back the sexism Perhaps he realised there was enough going on in the Original Series without adding to it.

    3. Sometimes modern technology renders something obsolete This book, to a large extent, is an example Basically what you have here is the summary and goofs sections of for every episode of Star Trek TOS Phil Farrand details inconsistencies, failures and quirks that took place during the three season run of the original series Using his handy VCR RIP the last factory that still produced them shut down last week , he went through every episode and catalogued all this and published it in book form I a [...]

    4. I ve had a copy of The Nitpicker s Guide for Next Generation Trekkers for years, so when I saw this volume at the used book store for 2.00 I just had to pick it up Reading this book is a good way to relive the original series, and find out about little mistakes the creators made and you never noticed before or maybe you had.One thing I didn t much about this edition is the section about Syndication Cuts for most episodes Most of these entries are just a list of three second clips that were cut o [...]

    5. Like all of the Nitpickers Guides , this one is filled with lots of points where the producers messed up, pointed out with affectionate humor You have to be a fan of classic Trek to enjoy this, though.

    6. It s easily the best of the Nitpicker s Guidesd the wittiestd the most hilarious Check out the image listings regarding the end credits after each episodeter a while, you ll be laughing your head off Never has a fake alien head received so much praise.

    7. A fun ride through the TOS episodes Written before the remastered episodes which affects a few of the nits for example many of the sound gaffs have been fixed but overall a worthwhile read for die hards.

    8. I read The Nitpicker s Guide to the X Files many years ago When I saw this guide on , I knew it would be a light, entertaining read It was also fun to revisit classic trek episodes.If you consider yourself a light Trekker, and want a quick, fun read, consider this book.

    9. I love this book It s especially fun when you watch the episodes while looking for the mistakes and flaws described in the book Nothing to complain, it s truly great

    10. Great companion to The Original Series If you have the original episodes on DVD then you can examine the various edits, trivia, continuity issues, etc It does a great job of summarizing themes.
