Insight Editions reached out to let us know that there is a new book for Star Trek fans that shines the spotlight on the multitude of costumes featured over the last 50 years.

We’ve seen books that look at the ships of the Star Trek universe, and there are many that look at the species and procedures of Star Fleet, but to my knowledge, this is the first time a book has focused on the costumes.

Drawing on the entire franchise, including all twelve films and six TV series, Star Trek: Costumes explores the creation of some of the most memorable garb in the galaxy, telling the complete story of how Star Trek’s outlandishly chic wardrobe has been expanded in increasingly thrilling ways throughout the years.

From the classic Starfleet uniforms and daringly provocative outfits of Star Trek: The Original Series, to flowing Vulcan robes, flamboyant Ferengi fashions, and formidable Klingon wedding attire, Star Trek: Costumes explores how these designs have played a key role in transporting fans to distant worlds and alien cultures over the last five decades.


Don’t expect to see any patterns to make your own costumes, but the book is filled with concept art that may give you an idea for your next Star Trek web series.

Star Trek: Costumes is written by Paula M. Block and Terry J. Erdmann. The book arrives in October and has a cover price of $60.00.
