The Computers of Star Trek
by Lois H. Gresh, Robert E. Weinberg

What will a 24th century mainframe be made of? What is a nanoprocessor? And how will androids really work? These are just a few of the quandaries that are tackled in this book, a methodical and entertaining voyage into the past and future of computing viewed from the prism of Star Trek technology. The authors, computer programmers and science fiction writers, compare the fictional technology of Star Trek to the computers that now exist or are likely to inhabit our future. They come up with some surprising forecasts, and the conclusion that we are much further towards developing computers like those shown in the TV series than anyone involved with the show could have imagined.
