Welcome to Star Trek Starship Handbooks!


I’ve been waiting for years for someone to produce the definitive book on the starships of Star Trek. So with the wealth of data and images collected and compiled by fans on the web, I decided to try put something together myself. What you'll find on this site are ebooks in PDF format containing data and schematics on various vessels from the Star Trek series and movies, culled and collated from around the web.


Volumes One to Seven can be downloaded from the links on the left.


Volume One - Major Starfleet Vessels

Volume Two - Other Starfleet Vessels

Volume Three - Alpha & Beta Quadrant Vessels

Volume Four - Gamma & Delta Quadrant Vessels

Volume Five - 22nd Century Vessels

Volume Six - Starfleet Auxiliary Vessels

Volume Seven - Supplemental

Volume Eight - Under construction


A combined version, The Starship Handbook, containing all the ships from the individual volumes together in one 322 page ebook can be downloaded from the Combined link on the left.


A full list of sources used is included in the bibliography of each ebook, and the links are all well worth checking out. I’ve endeavoured to contact as many owners of the images and schematics used as possible to ask permission to use them. If I’ve used your image and haven’t managed to reach you, or I’ve not credited you, my apologies - please contact me.


This project is intended to be a resource and reference for other Trek fans - as well as a showcase for the excellent work of both the talented designers and modellers involved with the Star Trek series, and the artists out there who've created the schematics and renderings.
