It's written as if it were a textbook chronicling everything from Earth'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 Federation until the year 2311. I have to say it sounds pretty sweet. Reuters says: "The book comes packed with original illustrations depicting epochal moments and iconic characters like Captain Kirk, Mr. Spock, Khan, Zefram Cochrane, Richard Daystrom and Solkar of Vulcan...Inside the back cover is a pocket containing 'documents from the Federation Archives,' including a handwritten letter by a young Jim Kirk to his mother." It also "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." All except the J.J. Abrams reboot.
The book even comes with a pedestal for display. When you push a button, it lights up with the voice of actor George Takei as Admiral Hikaru Sulu introducing the history.
Star Trek Federation: The First 150 Years is now available for all you completists who always wanted to know about the history of the universe.
Would you read the first 150 years?
