Do you possess Data-like recall of everything Star Trek: The Next Generation? Put that knowledge to the test with Hero Collector’s TNG Nerd Search Book, written by Glenn Dakin, with art by John Ross, coloured by Alan Craddock!
Star Trek Nerd Search: The Next Generation follows the The Original Series-centric Quibbles with Tribbles also by Glenn, released last year, and challenges TNG fans to find the made-on-purpose mistakes across its 44 pages.
Think of it as a next-level “Where’s Waldo” for all the diehard Star Trek fans throughout the galaxy.
Glenn Dakin, the madman behind Hero Collector’s previous Nerd Search search-and-find titles, Ghostbusters: Eerie Errors & Suspect Ghosts and Star Trek: Quibbles with Tribbles, returns to playfully torment fans who boldly think they know it all.
This fully illustrated book beams up the villainous Borg, who’ve created time-traveling Chaos Cubes that break down reality as we know it. The reader’s task is to spot the Cubes and save Picard’s mission.
Making it so, however, will be tough. The reader must spot five continuity errors caused by the Chaos Cubes, such as TNG characters in the wrong costume, or scene or… even the wrong series!
Complicating the crises, Glenn has hidden 10 random items for every season of TNG… in each scene. Can you find the rogue elements and name the episode? And, upping the ante even further, next-level TNG fans should be on the lookout for five Super Quibbles, behind-the-scenes bits of business that only hardcore fans will uncover. Sounds exciting and challenging, right?
Say it with us: Resistance will be futile.
It’s all in here: Quirky “Q” madness, those hirsute, cranky Klingons, and the ever-avaricious Ferengi. And, among the TNG episodes revisited are ‘The Best of Both Worlds, ‘ ‘The Big Goodbye, ‘ and ‘Encounter at Farpoint.’
Oh, and the goal is to achieve the top score of, appropriately, “11001001”…
