Star Trek Spaceflight Chronology

The Spaceflight Chronology – abridged from a much greater work – has been compiled to provide Star Fleet Academy Cadets with a concise, illustrated history of their home planet’s spaceflight evolution and technical development. It covers two centuries, starting with the first Space Shuttle flights in 1980 and ending with the heavy cruiser Constitution class star ships in 2188. More than 100 spacecrafts are featured; these include the Icarus which, in 2048, made Earth’s first contact with the Alpha Centauri civilization and the King Charles, the most luxurious starliner ever built.

Henceforth, freshman Cadets of planet Earth and eventually freshman Cadets from Vulcanm Rigel, Alpha Centauri, Tellar and Andor, should include Spaceflight Chronology on their essential reading list.
