Die Star Trek Physik

Die Star Trek Physik (German for "The physics of Star Trek") is a book published in 2016, written by Dr. Metin Tolan, professor for experimental physics at the Technische University Dortmund (1). With help of detailed calculations, it shows interesting connections and funny mistakes from Star Trek, for example, that from various statements in an episode you can calculate the theoretical weight of the Enterprise which is 158 kilogram.

Klingon acknowledgment

At the end of the book, there is an acknowledgement written in Klingon. This was obviously made with the help of the Bing-translator, by what it doesn't make too much sense. Beginners can spot that easily by seeing the use of English words in the text. Advanced speakers recognize the gibberish, by seeing, that the author thanks the Hamlet figure "Guildenstern".
