I recently was gifted a Kindle as a present and thought I would start my Kindle collection with Star Trek books. Being a long time fan of Enterprise, I jumped straight into The Romulan war without purchasing Kobayshi Maru first. Reading this isn't required but would have probably helped as many elements from Kobayshi spill into the opening of this book. A lot of the reviews for this book have focused on the "hap hazard" nature of the writing, personally I like the jumping back and forward as you breeze through chapters as it keeps you on your toes.

Pros - After 4 seasons on Tv, Hoshi and Mayweather get more depth in this book than
they ever did. There is action scenes, which are short and sweet but personally
I think writing about epic space battles will never compare to seeing them on
screen. Archer for once is a little broken and wounded, and not the archetypal
"John Wayne" in Space" that was often portrayed - the character is better for
it. Soval, Trip and T'pol are also well handled.

Cons- Not enough given to the goings on at the Romulan end of things, quick few
pages that give very little away about Valdore, D'derix or the usual plottings
and assassinations. Sags in the middle with the newscaster stories.

All being said it's a good read, a little too much going on for it's own good. But in the end gets to where it needs to be. Faithful to the show and the characters.

The Romulan War is probably the most mentioned yet never elaborated part of Star Trek lore; it has been referred to as Earth's first great space war, the starting point for the Federation and so on and so forth. Hence my genuine excitement that it was to finally be realized in this series of books, even with the horrific disappointment other recent prequels / back story outings have generated (such as season 1-3 of the Enterprise TV show itself). While not being a complete rabid fanboy myself (there's no point pretending I'm not a little), I still feel that if one is to take on such an important part of canon, justice should be done to it; and The Romulan War manages it... just

The good:
Even though I was not happy with the `computer hijack' plot device of the previous books, the solution presented here at least nicely papers over the more glaring continuity issues between the design of the NX series and the Kirk era Starfleet, and while doing so nods to a certain movie; both things that should please me and I'm sure will other fans too. In fact Martin appears quite adept at panel-beating the dented wreck of the Enterprise TV series into some sort of recognised timeline, effort for which he should be applauded.

He also does a fairly good job of conveying comparative technological dark age of this early war; Journeys between planets take time, sensors are primative and even the more powerful races don't have `that' many ships. Its description of the problems faced in planning an interstellar war is to be commended. Certainly sets this series in stark contrast to both the last few seasons of DS9 and the recent "Destiny" collection of novels.

I have often wondered how the television series Enterprise would have played out if a fifth or even sixth series had been been made. The Romulan War - Beneath the Raptors Wing, the two proceeding books The Good That Men Do and Kobayashi Maru and the final book following The Romulan War - To Brave The Storm all answer this question. I have been an avid reader of novels for the last 20 years. I was reluctant prior to purchasing the four books to buy a book which is based on a T.V. series, as this was something I had not done before thinking I might be disppointed. However my curiosity got the better of me and I purchased this book, plus the other 3 books in the series. I was not disappointed. For me this book and its companions are a good read. If you want to find out what happens to Archer, T'Pol and Trip plus the other T.V. series characters, then these books are for you.

Hoshi also requests a transfer stating she a translator not a combat officer and will be more use training new starfleet officers.
Archer pleads with her to stay and she acquiesces out of loyalty to her C.O.

The bad press continues as the people of earth begin to doubt starfleet's abilty to defend them ,several additional attacks are not countered by star fleet at all.

Shran rejoins the imperial guard as a general (now desperate for experienced combat officers) but his relationship with his wife suffers .He refuses to open his mind to his telepathic wife attempting to shield her from the horrors of war.
