There have been a number of wonderful art volumes highlighting the history of Star Trek. But a new book coming this November from 47North shows you the history, not of the show, but of the Federation itself.
Authored by David A. Goodman and titled Star Trek Federation: The First 150 Years, this 176-page hardcover includes a display pedestal—complete with lights, sound, and… oh my!… the voice of Admiral Hikaru Sulu.
Filled with beautiful illustrations, key historical documents, and rarely seen artifacts such a Zefram Cochrane’s original sketches for the Phoenix and a handwritten letter from young Jim Kirk, the book—which was assembled as a special exhibit on Memory Alpha—is a must-have for any Star Trek fan. It’s truly is beautiful, and there’s never been such an enlightening glimpse into the history of the future.
Star Trek Federation: The First 150 Years, will be released on November 20, 2012 and sells for a retail price of $99.99. You can currently pre-order from Amazon.com for $59.99.
