Here's some more information on the STAR TREK MECHANICS book:
Constitution class: about 70 photos, half being frame enlarhements from TOS, the rest photos of Greg Jein's miniature from the DS9 episode; theese miniature photos are new to me.

Enterprise D (3-engined): 13 photos, mostly new, with some great detail shots of the added details.
Enterprise E: 35 photos, almost all new. Detail shots are sometimes washed out by the camera's flash.
The Phoenix: 3 shots, all the same one from before.
Voyager: 43 shots, almost all new- excellent detail shots (although shot in room light with daylight film, so they are a bit on the yellow side).

All text is in Japanese, with a few names (Like USS Enterprise) in English. About 250 pages.
Most of the photos in the book are of the actual studio miniatures, so CG ships like the FC ones don't appear at all (well, there's one lousy frame enlargement from the battle). Perhaps there will be a second volume. Note that this book is the Star Trek Official guide 4. I have no idea what is in 1-3, though I suspect it to be the usual cast photos and such.
Sol System: use whatever you like.
