Worth the read 1 février 2014
Par Kirk T Viator - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
Admittedly, it has a couple discrepancies, such as stating incorrectly the location of Kirk's birth, but that aside, it was an excellent read. It covers 150 years of the original universe from Khan's era (pre-WW3) through the death of Kirk. It is not a blow by blow accounting of episodes and movies, but it takes a view more as a history book would take. It looks at the highlights that shaped the federation, not the exploits of a singular ship.

One section I especially liked was the period after that of the Enterprise TV series, including the Romulan War. It gives a great glimpse into what we would have seen had the series not been cancelled prematurely.

Not only do I recommend this book for any Star Trek fan, I am glad to have it in my collection, and I hope to see a follow up soon to continue the history for the next 150 years, from after Kirk through to the fall of the Romulan Empire, including insights into the eras of Enterprises B, C, D, and E, and the Cardassian and Dominion Wars. Get writing Mr. Goodman!

Not perfect, but a must-read for Treksperts! 6 décembre 2013
Par Mark Anthony - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
I bought the first printing of "Federation", which came with the pedestal. I was a little disappointed in that book's quality - the spine/glue was very weak and I am afraid to read it any more or some pages could start falling out. Also, I was surprised to see several typos in the first edition... hopefully those have been fixed in this edition.

Anyway, on to my review of Mr. Goodman's book.

Overall, I enjoyed his version of Star Trek's "history". Goodman does a commendable job connecting what seem to be unrelated events and characters into an exciting (albeit retconned) narrative that holds up. Where I felt Goodman came up short was in his telling of the oft-mentioned, never seen on screen Romulan War. As we learned from "Enterprise", a series which Goodman wrote for, the Romulan War is the catalyst for forming the United Federation of Planets. Since the Romulan War is arguably the flashpoint for the entire concept of his book, I was expecting a much more expansive and detailed telling of the war from Goodman. And while his version does have some nice ideas (the Battle of Sol shows you why aliens don't mess with Earth for the next 100 years), a better rendition of the Romulan War played out in the Enterprise novel series from Pocket Books, which operates on a much grander scale. Goodman's telling of the war's final battle at Cheron was a bit anti-climatic with only a few ships involved and the Romulans looking like first year cadets taking the Kobayashi Maru test. Oh, and Mr. Goodman, Bryce Shumar isn't the captain of the Intrepid - Carlos Ramirez is.

Anyway, the Romulan War aside, Goodman does tell some good stories and his writing is sharp. There is a large period in the timeline that hasn't been covered in the Prime universe through canon, namely the period between ENT and TOS and Goodman deftly fills that era with a Federation/Klingon "cold war" that includes Garth of Izar and the NCC-1701's first captain, Robert April. It's also during this "Age of Exploration" that the Federation makes first contact with worlds like Organia and Talos; places which will become critical to Captain Kirk's five-year mission (and Star Trek mythology).

David Goodman's "Federation: the First 150 Years" takes us where no book has gone before into some unexplored corners of Star Trek's "history" and is a must-read for die-hard Trekkers.

A great future history book 6 janvier 2014
Par EE n ME - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
I had seen this book listed in Amazon for some time and decided to purchase it recently. I am usually not a good book reader, starting a book, then not finishing it at all. This book, I could not put down. I enjoyed the format of it being a history book available to students in the 24th century. It covers the story of Star Trek from First Contact to the death of James T. Kirk. Using available canon as it's basis, it takes story lines from the movies and TV shows to establish it historical basis. Starting with Star Trek: First Contact to the beginning of Star Trek: Generations, the author used known material that made logical sense. Some parts of the book, especially the history of the Romulan war in the 22nd century were not know to me and it filled in many holes that I was happy to seen filled.
As we all could guess, the hero of this book should have been James T. Kirk. He being the original captain of the Enterprise from the first TV series in the 60's. However, if you are a fan of Star Trek: Enterprise (as I am), and this is a spoiler alert; the real hero of the Star Trek story is Jonathan Archer, original captain of the Enterprise, the NX-01. The first two thirds of the book tells Archer's story in great detail and seems to make him out as the hero of the Federation and it's foundation . I found this interesting and seems that the author of the book, a writer for Star Trek: Enterprise, takes great pride in telling the story of Archer and his history in the Star Trek universe.
In addition, the author uses created footnotes and book references that seem to give the validations of the history that he has created in the book. A appreciated all the documentation that the author credited or had others create for him that backs up the history in the book.
But, above all, this is an excellent read and I recommend it to Star Trek fans who love the canon of the series and order it has.

Lacking an authentic feel 8 décembre 2013
Par shaxper - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
It's been twenty years since the release of the Star Trek Chronology: The History of the Future which, at the time, was the definitive Star Trek geeks' guide to the history of the Trek universe. It was certainly time for an update, and this volume attempts to do one better, producing a history book that was supposedly published within the Trek universe, containing reprints of primary sources/documents from the early years of the Federation. It's a great idea, but it falls apart in many places.

For one thing, this book is written with the complexity of a high school textbook. Considering that this was supposedly commissioned by, and produced for, members of the United Federation of Planets, a vastly superior coalition of races that generally respects education far more than we do, the writing of this work alone comes off as inauthentic, especially when it uses italics to emphasize intonation. I half expect exclamation points, smileys, and LOLs to follow.

For another, this is supposed to be a history of the Federation, and yet its focus is entirely on the human perspective, beginning with Zephram Cochrane and seemingly concerning itself almost entirely with the human/Earth aspect of the Federation.

But where the book falls apart for me most is in its supposed historical artifacts. The looks of these artifacts are artificial and clumsy, the wording sparse, elementary and inauthentic-sounding (especially on treaties and other legal agreements), and the pictures always look like they were done by the same artists, even an oil painting commissioned by the Romulan High Command that has the same style and level of complexity as every other drawing in the book.

I can't comment on how well Goodman knows his facts in this book, as I'm not primarily a fan of Enterprise nor the Original Series, but I am disappointed by how pervasive Jonathan Archer is throughout nearly a third of the supposed history of this vast inter-stellar alliance. No empire owes that much of its genesis to one figure. I doubt a history of the USSR could spend that much time on Marx or Lenon, nor could a history of the United States appropriately spend that much time on Washington. Maybe that's a fault of the Enterprise series itself, or maybe a better writer could have done a more effective job of balancing Archer's involvement in the Federation's creation with other key information we know that doesn't directly involve him. Why not give more focus to the Vulcan, Andorian, and Romulan sides of things?

In the end, this is still a captivating read, and I give it credit for its audacity in attempting to tell the chronological history of the Star Trek Universe in such a unique fashion, but whereas the Star Trek Chronology of two decades earlier was more thorough, professional, and detached in its scope, this feels more or less like the work of a relatively unsophisticated writer who really enjoyed his time writing episodes of Enterprise.

Try again. 23 octobre 2013
Par Trevor M. Rogers - Publié sur Amazon.com

I have a lot of issues with what's been stated in this book, but let's just focus on a couple. According to this book, it says that James T. Kirk was born on the Einstein-Class ship USS Kelvin. Maybe in Abrams Trek this is correct, but in the Prime universe Kirk was born on the family farm in Iowa. And Kirk's mother WAS NOT on Tarsus IV with Jim. There were only nine survivors left after the massacre, and seven of them were killed by Kodos' daughter. Pretty sure that if Jim's mother had been killed, Jim would have noticed. If this author wants any kind of credibility with actual Trekkies, he shouldn't have used anything from the 2009 film, other than the fact that Old Spock confirms that George Kirk watched Jim take command of the Enterprise at 31 years of age. Abrams Trek completely wiped everything out that came after the Narada changed the timeline. And the second film makes the book even more ridiculous, with Khan suddenly a British white man, and the Bling-ons, sorry Klingons.
