This holiday season’s must have for the Trekkie in your life is the new book;  “Star Trek Federation – The First 150 Years.

Published by 47NORTH, this “deluxe history book” focuses on the founding and early years of  “the United Federation of Planets” – you remember that interplanetary alliance that explored the galaxy committed to keeping its members safe from Klingons, Romulans, and other villains.

The book is heavily illustrated and in a pocket inside the rear cover you’ll find “documents from the Federation Archives,” including a handwritten letter by a young Jim Kirk to his mother.

The book is housed in a plastic pedestal display which lights up with the push of a button to the familiar voice of actor George Takei as Admiral Hikaru Sulu introducing the book.
