Praise

“Britt’s scrupulous, often funny, and sometimes controversial zeal breathes new life into the canon’s obsessive discourse… Trekkies will tear through this at warp speed.”
Publishers Weekly

““Both longtime Trek fans and those new to the franchise will find this to be a thoroughly entertaining and informative read.”
Booklist

“Britt combines his extensive knowledge of the Star Trek franchise with interviews conducted over the past decade to craft a thoughtful exploration of the show’s history. His narrative bridges fact with fandom and is packed with fun anecdotes… But the book’s ultimate mission is highlighting why Star Trek continues to be a groundbreaking series. From Nichelle Nichols as Lt. Uhura to Michelle Yeoh as Captain Georgiou and beyond, Britt shows readers how Star Trek has always been at the forefront of representation and the effect those efforts have had on television and in popular culture… Britt’s lively writing style will engage newer fans and confirmed Trekkies alike… a fun ride that few fans will be able to resist.”
Library Journal (starred)

“Ryan Britt is our foremost sci-fi journalist, bringing to the pop culture of the last half-century a reporter’s eye and a fan’s caress. With Phasers on Stun!, it’s as if he used a nucleonic beam to probe our deepest questions about all things Trek—and then answered them!”
—Morgan Gendel, Hugo Award–winning writer of “The Inner Light,” Star Trek: The Next Generation (season 5, episode 25)

“With Phasers on Stun!, Ryan Britt has written a comprehensive, deeply researched, merrily opinionated romp through all things Trek.”
Nicholas Meyer, director of Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan

“Ryan Britt doesn’t just have his finger on the pulse of Star Trek fandom; he’s driving the conversation from the bridge of the Enterprise. His decades of living, breathing, and interviewing the players behind the groundbreaking and beloved franchise make him the definitive voice for both casual and die-hard fans—and this book. A must-read!”
Caseen Gaines, author of We Don’t Need Roads: The Making of the Back to the Future Trilogy

Phasers on Stun! is the very fun, intriguing, and mindful Star Trek history book you didn’t know you needed.”
—Chase Masterson, “Leeta” on Star Trek: Deep Space Nine
