From the deepest depths of time and space, we have been graced with the wisdom of Her Highness Grudge from Star Trek Discovery. Star Trek Discovery: The Book of Grudge is an out-of-this-world perspective from a feline point of view.
A cat wrote a book?!
With the careful assistance from Robb Pearlman (He’s allergic to cats oddly), Grudge has given us her unique PURR-spective of life, the universe, and everything. The answer is not 42; the answer is that cats are this highest species in the known galaxy and we are just now figuring this out. Shame on us!
This 96-page book is an excellent addition to anyone’s coffee table, better yet inside a cat cafe! Throughout the book, you’ll find Grudge’s thoughts on the crew around the ship, The Federation, Starfleet, etc.
In the book, Haikus are a PURR-fect break from the whisker sharp wit Grudge conveys, along with pictures around the set. Oh, but that is not all; you’ll occasionally see hilarious cartoon depictions of the Sovereign Cat.
As a Trek fan, you will find Feline-inspired twists on famous quotes from the 55-year franchise. Grudge even pays homage to Spot, the other renowned feline of the Federation from the Enterprise-D. But she didn’t talk about Porthos…
If you don’t get this book in your collection, it would be a CAT-astrophic mistake. The Art, on-set photos, in-universe jokes, and wit make this a must-buy! It doesn’t matter if you’re a pet parent or a Trekkie is just a good laugh!
