Every character comes to life and is true to their depiction on television. At last, a believable ending to the Enterprise saga worthy of being an episode in its own right. This book really needs to be filmed as the true ending. It would please the fans immeasurably and give closure for an excellent television series that ended on a bum note, for want of a better expression.
This book stands alone in its own right and although there are follow up books that continue with the Romulan war and further adventures of Captain Archer and his crew I feel that a true ending has occurred here and the follow on books are a new chapter to the Star Trek saga. I look forward to reading them too.
To get a real feel of this book I believe it useful to watch the last few episodes of Star Trek-Enterprise again before reading. It all then makes sense.
My congratulations to the authors of this book for some excellent writing.
I've given this novel, the first Enterprise relaunch novel, five stars for a number of reasons. Firstly, and most importantly, its raison d'etre is to re-do properly that whole sticky mess of Enterprise's final episode. It does this by telling the story in a similar way to the episode - as a simulation of what occurred from a future perspective - but places little focus on this aspect, instead using it as the jumping off point to pretty much contradict These Are The Voyages and make that episode easier to take (as now we're told the chain of events were fabricated by Starfleet). It also sets up a few things we were looking forward to in the series, such as the eventual formation of the Federation and the Romulan War; which had been hotly debated as to whether Enterprise would or should incorporate this story if the show had it got another season or three.
To fully enjoy this novel and its various references, I went back and watched a good deal of season 4 of Enterprise again so it was fresh in my memory. While not necessary, I would definitely recommend that to get the most out of the story, you should be familiar with Babel One/United/The Aenar, Demons/Terra Prime and These Are The Voyages... (trust me, it's worth it in the long run!).
What this novel excels at is getting the characters right, a task that the authors proved they could handle with Last Full Measure, which is important considering our heroes are now entirely in the hands of the authors.Read more ›
The story takes place in two time frames. The first is from the perspective of and older Jake Sisko and Nog. The latter discovers some newly declassified files which seem to be incongruous with historical entries and, knowing that Jake loves a good mystery, the two friends look at the holoprogram and data of the true events at the end of the NX-01's mission.
The bulk of the book is set in early 2155 (just after the episode Terra Prime) and the looming possibility of an Earth / Romulan war comes ever closer as Starfleet Intelligence receive data that the Romulans are developing a new warp 7 drive system.
When Orions raid Andoria for more Aenar, Shran enlists the help of Archer to track down the Aenar, including Jhamel (seen in the mid forth season trilogy), before they are sold. Shran believes that they will be sold to the Romulans to pilot more of their telepresence drone ships.
With the Coalition Compact, the forerunner to the UFP, member signing only three weeks away, Starfleet orders the Enterprise back to Earth for the ceremony, despite the situation. Archer is torn between duty and loyalty and only Trip's idea of using Malcolm's contact in `The Bureau' (Section 31) to assist them leads into a dark and shadowy conspiracy that was hidden by Starfleet for over 300 years.Read more ›
The novel is based around the premise that Commander Tucker has been growing increasingly worried about the threat posed by the Romulans. However, Starfleet is more interested in getting the coalition of planets up and running without incident and therefore don't take either his or Captain Archer's warnings seriously. However, through his friend Lieutenant Reed, Tucker contacts a secret organization within Starfleet known as Section 31 that does take him seriously. This sets in motion a series of events that result in Tucker's death being faked so that he can carry out a clandestine mission in Romulan space.
I actually found this to be a rather enjoyable novel, with a fairly well conceived plot when you consider what it was trying to undo. Whilst it did become a little bit melodramatic at times it still did a good a job in keeping me entertained from start to finish. It was also probably one of the most action packed Star Trek novels that I have read recently which helped to create a rather fast pace. However, as with most Star Trek novels it struggled to create any real feeling of tension as the reader knows that there is no real risk to the main characters or the Enterprise itself.
A minor issue I did have with the novel is to do with the framing story, the very same issue that many people had with the Enterprise series finale.Read more ›
