Press Release wrote:The worlds of the United Federation of Planets are revealed for the first time through a singular galactic endeavor: STAR TREK Federation: The First 150 Years (becker&mayer! On-sale: November 20, 2012; ISBN-13: 978-1612184173, ISBN-10: 1612184170, $99.00). This expansive history covers the first 150 years of the United Federation of Planets—the intergalactic democracy that governs the Star Trek universe. With more than 50 previously unseen documents—letters, treaty excerpts, and intelligence reports—highlighting historic moments that began it all, this gorgeously illustrated history of the Federation gives fans new insight into the Star Trek universe.
The 176-page deluxe volume, licensed by CBS Consumer Products, is housed in a sleek display pedestal that features electronic lights and audio narration provided by famed actor George Takei, the original Hikaru Sulu.
Six chapters covering everything from First Contact to the Organian Peace Treaty and the tenuous peace that followed include nearly 50 original full-color and black-and-white illustrations. These illustrations reveal 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. This unprecedented package also features five removable documents, including a handwritten letter from the young Jim Kirk, a document revealing the truth about the Trill symbiont, and Zefram Cochrane’s first sketch of the warp drive engine.
