Assembled as a Special Exhibit on Memory Alpha, Star Trek Federation: The First 150 Years celebrates the 150th anniversary of the founding of the United Federation of Planets.

This unprecedented illustrated volume chronicles the pivotal era leading up to Humankind's First Contact with Vulcan in 2063, the Romulan War in 2156, the creation of the Federation in 2161, and the first 150 years of the intergalactic democracy up until the year 2311. Meticulously researched, this account covers a multitude of alien species, decisive battles, and the technology that made the Age of Exploration possible. It includes field sketches, illustrations, and reproductions of historic pieces of art from across the Galaxy, along with over fifty excerpts from key Federation documents and correspondence, Starfleet records, and intergalactic intelligence.

Housed in a pedestal display complete with lights and an audio introduction by Admiral Hikaru Sulu, this edition also features five removable documents from the Federation Archives, including Zefram Cochrane's early sketch of the warp-drive engine, a handwritten letter from young Jim Kirk, and the first-known diagram of a Trill symbiont.

Product Features:
     · Pedestal display featuring electronic lights and sound (13.5” x 13.5” x 4”)
     · Audio introduction by Admiral Hikaru Sulu
     · 176-page hardcover book with four-color illustration throughout
     · Envelope containing 5 removable artifacts
     · Over fifty excerpts from key Federation documents and correspondence, Starfleet records, and intergalactic intelligence

About the Author:

David A. Goodman has spent the last 26 years writing for television. His credits include The Golden Girls, Star Trek: Enterprise, Futurama (where he wrote the Nebula Award nominated Star Trek homage “Where No Fan Has Gone Before”), and Family Guy where he was head writer for six years. This is his first book. He lives in Pacific Palisades, CA with his family.

Review:

"The book serves as a great connector of Star Trek chronology for hardcore fans, but it can also help new readers and viewers understand the groundwork for the Star Trek universe."
-LA Times

“For the discriminating Trekkie, this is the item of the guide.”
-aintitcool.com Holiday Gift Guide

"Federation: The First 150 Years aims to impress Star Trek fans from the moment they take it out of the box...The attention to detail is thorough."
-shelf-awareness.com

"I will tell you, without hesitation, if you are a fan of any, or all, of the Star Trek series and movies, you must have this book."
-wired.com

"The artwork inside the book is gorgeous. These paintings depict many famous scenes, such as those from the ... Earth-Romulan War. There's no quick pasting of a screenshot from one of the TV shows here. Even scenes that could have easily been done this way have been rendered in pencils and inks, giving the book a consistent feel. The starship pieces are easily my favorite. I'd really like a desktop wallpaper of the “Starfleet's Greatest Vessels” piece."
-fanboycomics.net

"Without question, fans will want this and love this. This book is as indispensable as the Star Trek Encyclopedia, Chronology, or series' Companions. My hope is that there will be a follow up volume focusing on the 24th century. This is worth owning. Overall grade: A-"

“This holiday season's must have for the Trekkie in your life.”
Seattle Post Intelligencer
