Federation: The First 150 Years won’t be available until November, but the anticipation has been building steadily since May, when StarTrek.com announced details about the 47North/becker&mayer! book by David A. Goodman. Fans cheered some more when we debuted a teaser video earlier this month. And today StarTrek.com unveils an exclusive look at a very cool piece of art from Federation: a body scan of a Trill Symbiont in a host body, as rendered by artist Jeff Carlisle.

Federation: The First 150 Years brims with intelligence reports, treaty excerpts and letters documenting the historic moments that led to the formation of the United Federation of Planets. Goodman explores every facet of the Federation, 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 provides the voice of Sulu in an audio narration, and fans will also enjoy the book’s tactile elements, including such detachable documents as a hand-penned letter from a young Jim Kirk and Zefram Cochrane’s first sketch of the warp drive engine.
