“For the discriminating Trekkie, this is the item of the guide.”
-aintitcool.com Holiday Gift Guide
"Federation: The First 150 Years aims to impress Star Trek fans from the moment they take it out of the box...The attention to detail is thorough."
"I will tell you, without hesitation, if you are a fan of any, or all, of the Star Trek series and movies, you must have this book."
"The artwork inside the book is gorgeous. These paintings depict many famous scenes, such as those from the ... Earth-Romulan War. There's no quick pasting of a screenshot from one of the TV shows here. Even scenes that could have easily been done this way have been rendered in pencils and inks, giving the book a consistent feel. The starship pieces are easily my favorite. I'd really like a desktop wallpaper of the “Starfleet's Greatest Vessels” piece."
"Without question, fans will want this and love this. This book is as indispensable as the Star Trek Encyclopedia, Chronology, or series' Companions. My hope is that there will be a follow up volume focusing on the 24th century. This is worth owning. Overall grade: A-"
“This holiday season's must have for the Trekkie in your life.”
