A new book is due out this year that will chronicle the first one-hundred-and-fifty years of the United Federation of Planets.
Star Trek Federation: The First 150 Years was written by David A. Goodman, and features illustrations by Joe Corroney, Mark McHaley, Cat Staggs and Jeff Carlisle.
The history of the Federation, from the First Contact between Vulcan and Earth, to the Organian Peace Treaty of Captain Kirk’s time, is examined in this book.
Star Trek Federation: The First 150 Years includes removable documents such as Zefram Cochran’s first sketch of the warp drive engine, a “hand-penned” letter from a young Jim Kirk and a document “revealing the truth about the Trill symbiont.
Six chapters in length, along with the history, the book contains illustrations including “alien species, historic battles, and ship designs that Trek fans have heard about but never before seen, including the Xindi Avian, the Romulan attack on Starbase 1, and the original blueprints for the U.S.S. Enterprise.”
Star Trek Federation: The First 150 Years is 176 pages in length, and will sell for $59.99 at Amazon, where pre-orders are being taken. The book will be released on November 20, 2012.
