Here’s a book, ‘Star Trek: Book Of Opposites’ by David Borgenicht, that I doubt other SF websites will review, mostly because it isn’t an adult book but one designed for your sprogs learning how to read words and associating them with the original ‘Star Trek’ series. As the title points out, this book’s intention is to show opposite meanings like happy/angry, near/far, etc. If I do any more examples like that I can tell you the whole book.
Interestingly, the photos are all of good quality and I expect the adult Trek fans will spend a quiet minute or two identifying which episodes they come from and then show these to their kids as well.
An odd sort of book that I expect those who collect all things Trek are likely to miss otherwise because of the age range it’s aimed at.
