In addition to being the senior editor here at Twin Cities Geek, I’m also a book editor. Sometimes those books are geeky, too, which is the case with Treknology: The Science of Star Trek from Tricorders to Warp Drive—a book about the real-life science behind Star Trek technology. After realizing there was nothing like it already out there, I acquired Treknology for the Quarto Group in Minneapolis with astrophysicist and bona fide geek Ethan Siegel to write it. Some two years of approvals and book creation later, I’m excited for it to officially come out on October 15, 2017.
To celebrate, Quarto and Twin Cities Geek are giving away 2 copies of Treknology! To enter, all you have to do is like Twin Cities Geek Facebook page and comment on our giveaway post naming your favorite piece of technology from the Star Trek universe. We’ll randomly choose 2 winners and send each of them a copy of the book!
So whether it’s the holodeck, the phaser, or the impulse engine, tell us your favorite Trek tech and you could win!
