The early 1990s Star Trek: Starfleet Academy novels were great fun.

The best of them were, unsurprisingly, the young Worf stories by Peter David that started the series off – Trek’s best writer paired with TNG’s most interesting character. 

The futuristic and beautiful House of the Book in the Simi Valley was used as a Star Trek location several times, including as the planet Khitomer in Star Trek VI, and as Lore’s base in TNG. 

Star Trek: TNG Shuttle craft tent by designer Dave Delisle.

“Spring is here, so I thought it would be fun to make a geeky tent design that would be perfect for all of your away missions: I present a tent design based on the shuttlecraft from Star Trek.” – Dave Delisle

Andrew Probert’s original concept for the shuttlecraft on the Next Generation.

It’s amazing to me how TNG’s organic look still looks so high tech decades later and a lot of that was because of Probert’s designs.

Star Trek: the Next Generation’s Admiral Brackett was named after, and clearly visually based on, 1930s space opera and detective author Leigh Brackett.
