Everyone I wanted to talk about this amazing book I recently obtained!!

Its called The First 150 years of the United Federation of planets. This book is absolutely amazing!!!

In this high quality volume it discusses all the events from the first 150 years, such as the founding of the federation, the temporal cold war, encounter with Khan, and many others. The amazing detail, and painstakingly accurate information, and illustrations in this book is by far absolutely incredible!! 

If thats not enough the book has an computer console like docking display stand,with an full speaker system, that when initialized comes alive with Admiral Hikara Sulu’s voice introducing himself, and doing an amazing introduction that talks about Memory alpha and the Starfleet archives etc!!

I highly recommend getting this outstanding well made item, especially if you are huge into Trek!!

Prophet Of Science Fiction is probably my new favorite show!!

In this episode it discusses the life and works, of Jules Verne the father of science fiction!!

It takes you from going to the moon, to flying in the sky, to plunging 20,000 leagues under the sea, and much more!

This intimate look into Jules life is very informative, and is full of movie clips, interviews, and special effects sequences!!

However me being a man of peace the part about the “Tazer” was a good bit disturbing, since that modern technology used to inflict pain on people was made a reality based on the electronic bullets in Jules novel 20,000 Leagues under the sea.

I was very fascinated to say the least about the water and hydrogen being used in cell engines as an alternative revolutionary modern day fuel/energy source!! That part alone reveals the superb technologies that can be developed via inspirations from science fiction!

Using pure water as an energy source is an incredible way in my opinion to restore our planet to acceptable living conditions, with a much healthier, and cleaner environment.

All in all this particular episode blew me away at how fun, and interesting it was to watch. I felt like a kid in a candy store!!!

Having said this in conclusion I totally recommend you check this out as well!!

Enjoy!! :)

Life on Other Planets

Frank Rudolph Paul (April 18, 1884 – June 29, 1963) was an illustrator of US pulp magazines in the science fiction field. He was born in Vienna, Austria and died at his home in Teaneck, New Jersey.

A discovery of Hugo Gernsback (himself an immigrant from Luxembourg), Frank R. Paul was influential in defining what both cover art and interior illustrations in the nascent science fiction pulps of the 1920s looked like.
