Based on the engineering logs of Chief Engineer Montgomery Scott.


Aided by the logbooks of Chief Engineer Montgomery Scott and recently declassified Starfleet material, Shane Johnson has written the most accurate, in-depth look at the USS Enterprise available.
For the first time anywhere, deck-by-deck in full, fascinating detail, you will tour the inside of the USS Enterprise, the United Federation of Planets' most recognized intragalactic ambassador. Using dozens of blueprints, sketches, and photographs, you'll visit the on-ship sites of Captain Kirk, Mister Spock and Commander Scott's most famous adventures—and take a never-before-revealed peek at the inner workings of a starship.
From the engineering room to the captain's quarters, from sickbay to auxiliary control, here is your complete guide to the most famous starship of all—the USS Enterprise!


By 2276, the Enterprise was the sole surviving member of the original 13 Constitution-class starships constructed. This, added with the fame and favor in the public eye the crew and ship had earned led the Federation Council to motion for Starfleet to reverse its decision to have the Enterprise decommissioned (a plan that was unknown to the public).

Enterprise was launched in 2245 (reference stardate 1/90).

All dates listed in the manual use the "reference stardate" timeline developed in the Spaceflight Chronology and extended by FASA (i.e. listing the Enterprise-A's launch date as 2222 SFC rather than 2286). Dates that are not expressed with a reference stardate notation should be understood to be conversions to the standard timeline.
