The Federation is one of the most influential organizations in the history of the galaxy. The centerpiece of Alpha Quadrant politics and government, the Federation has brought peace and prosperity to dozens of species, fostering communication, cooperation, and the continued quest for knowledge and understanding. From first contact between humans and Vulcans to the signing of the historic treaty between them, the Andorians, Tellarites, and Centaurians, it’s been a long and remarkable journey.

Star Trek: Federation: The First 150 Years is a chronicle of the creation and proliferation of one of science fiction’s most famous organizations. Collecting historical references from dozens of episodes and most of the films – though set mostly in the time before, during, and just after the shows Enterprise and Star Trek: TOS – it pieces together the elaborate backstory of Earth’s future with scholarly charm and style.

This is a brilliant tie-in for Trek devotees, though its tone might alienate some of the more casual fans. While purporting to be a historical tome, the book makes some very clever references to Star Trek’s long history for diehard fans of the franchise (as well as a few immensely satisfying references to other science fiction properties).
