An original novel set in the universe of Star Trek: Enterprise!

A new nation has arisen from the ashes of the Romulan War: the United Federation of Planets, an unprecedented union of diverse species cooperating for the good of all. Admiral Jonathan Archer—the former captain of the Earth starship Enterprise, whose efforts made this union possible—envisions a vibrant Fed­eration promoting galactic peace and a multispecies Starfleet dedicated to exploring strange new worlds. Archer’s former crewmates, including Captain T’Pol of the U.S.S. Endeavour and Captain Malcolm Reed of the U.S.S. Pioneer, work with him to secure that bright future. Yet others within the Federation see its purpose as chiefly military, a united defense against a dangerous galaxy, while some of its neighbors view that military might with suspicion and fear. And getting the member nations, their space fleets, and even their technologies to work together as a unified whole is an ongoing challenge.

When a new threat emerges from a force so alien and hostile that negotiation seems impossible, a group of unaligned worlds asks Starfleet to come to its defense, and the Federation’s leaders seize the opportunity to build their reputation as an interstellar power. But Archer fears the conflict is building toward an unnec­essary war, potentially taking the young nation down a path it was never meant to follow. Archer and his allies strive to find a better solution...but old foes are working secretly to sabotage their efforts and ensure that the great experiment called the Federation comes to a quick and bloody end.

Ok read.

The way the book goes it would have made a far better ending the the travesty of a series finale. But it did drag on in places. Over all it was a good read if you like the Star Trek universe.


I love this series, but in michael a martin's books preceding this there was more of trip and tpol its like in this series their relationship is kind of in limbo its not as intense as it was before and honestly thats one of the major factors that kept me hooked on the series, but ive been reading tower of babel and so far that aspect is alot better and this book was amazing other than that i love the rich plot lines, and the way they handled details of how the federation was formed but after the tower of babel i think it needs to be stepped up in the trip/tpol department. Yah i know im a shipper im sorry. :/ However,...:) there is a certain amount of foreshadowing in the tower of babel that my wish may come true. Yay:)

A really good book

I really enjoyed reading this Enterprise novel. The characters were better defined and felt more like their TV counterparts than they did in the previous 2 Romulan war novels. The story covers the first years of the Federation and its members start to define what it is. The events in this book feel very much like classic trek
