Last month, reported that Federation: The First 150 Years is on the way, due to arrive in stores/online in November. Now, check out this exclusive teaser video, which features some familiar Star Trek music, the unmistakable voice of Admiral Hikaru Sulu, Commander-in-Chief of Starfleet Command, and images from the hotly anticipated book.

As previously reported, Federation: The First 150 Years is full of intelligence reports, treaty excerpts and letters documenting the historic moments that led to the formation of the United Federation of Planets. Author David A. Goodman will examine everything from First Contact to the Organian Peace Treaty, with the text complemented by color and black and white illustrations of epic battles, alien species and heretofore unseen ship designs, among them the Romulan attack on Starbase 1 and original blueprints for the U.S.S. Enterprise and the Xindi Avian. George Takei, of course, provides the voice of Sulu for the audio narration, and fans can expect to find such detachable documents as a hand-penned letter from a young Jim Kirk and Zefram Cochrane’s first sketch of the warp drive engine.
