Perhaps due to a temporal disruption, fans who have been eagerly awaiting the release of the art book Star Trek Federation: The First 150 Years, will have to wait just a little bit longer. Originally slated for a November release, this 176-page hardcover volume has been pushed back to December 4.
But once it is here, fans will be treated to a gorgeous historical exploration, not of Star Trek the show, but of the Federation itself.
Published by 47North, Star Trek Federation: The First 150 Years 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Filled with beautiful illustrations, key historical documents, and rarely seen artifacts such a Zefram Cochrane’s original sketches for the Phoenix and a handwritten letter from young Jim Kirk, the book—which was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.
