What is Starfleet?
It is the universe’s most famous and inspirational coalitions of all time. It has boldly gone where no pop culture franchise has gone before. It is the foundation for a thriving community of passionate fans.
Creator Gene Roddenberry said Star Trek “was an attempt to say that humanity will reach maturity and wisdom on the day that it begins not just to tolerate but take a special delight in differences in ideas and differences in life forms . . . If we cannot learn to actually enjoy those small differences, to take a positive delight in those small differences between our own kind, here on this planet, then we do not deserve to go out into space and meet the diversity that is almost certainly out there.”
After more than 50 years, 11 television series, 13 movies, and countless fan conventions later, Star Trek fans of all ages continue to gather—in person or virtually– and enjoy, share, and live up to Roddenberry’s optimistic vision of the future.
Fully authorized and filled with full-color images and quotes spanning the Star Trek universe, Star Trek: Starfleet Is… celebrates Gene Roddenberry’s vision of the future. The book highlights 101 of the key traits of Starfleet, the United Federation of Planets’ premiere organization, and how those same ideals are personified by characters from Kirk and Spock, to Picard and Data, Janeway and Tuvix, Sisko and Bashir, Archer and Sato, and Burnham and Saru. A perfect gift for fans of all ages, Star Trek: Starfleet Is… is the ideal way to share in, and treasure, Starfleet’s ethos.
What is Starfleet? Starfleet is fun. Starfleet is not always logical. Starfleet is adventure. Starfleet is brave. Starfleet is compassion. Starfleet is diverse. Starfleet is evolving.
And it is by sharing their passions, supporting one another through difficult times, celebrating one another’s successes, and boldly going into a bright and hopeful future that Star Trek fans show that, above all, Starfleet is family. Starfleet is forever.
