STF150-103013

 

The Story

Star Trek Federation: The First 150 Years, written by David A. Goodman, is an “in universe” history of Star Trek that celebrates the 150th anniversary of the founding of the United Federation of Planets.

The book “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.”
