Over two hundred years ago, the life of one ...more

Note that while this review may seem spoiler-y, it doesn't contain anything you won't find in season 4 of Enterprise, the first few chapters of the book, or the publisher's summary.
Ah, The Good that Men Do. To say that I simply enjoyed this novel would be a gross understatement; I adore ...more

As a huge fan of Enterprise, I felt insulted by the last episode that didn't only kill off my favourite character in a way that nearly made me cry; it also focused on two characters from another Star Trek series, Riker and Troi from TNG, assuming everyone knows them. That's just disrespectful to both the fans of Enterprise as well as the characters and their respective actors.
Guess what? The authors of The Good That Men Do did exactly the same thing with Jake Sisko and Nog from DS9, for ...more

I've read some really awesome reviews of this book so I will keep mine short and on point. I'd only just watched the end of this series and went back to the beginning and online to find answers. This book gives me some of the biggest I'd been missing.

The way his character was just killed off in the final episodes of the Enterprise would have left much more than a few fans (like me) fuming. I mean..seriously...a simple pirate ship invading NX01 at a whim and killing off Trip...that just had to be one of the most absurd stories ever. Needless to say that it made the security and preparedness of one of our most loved crews look laughable. Am so relieved to k ...more

This is truly the first book in the continuing story of Star Trek: Enterprise with Jonathan Archer and his crew.
Most people agree the last episode of Enterprise; "These Are The Voyages ..." was terrible. What made this book so enjoyable was how the authors used the same kind of framing of the story as the TV finale but tweaked it to give us a more satisfying story and jumping off point for the next "season."
The entire book is really a reworking of the finale; setting ...more
The authors developed what probably is the only method of correcting the episode without using time travel, or parallel universe or any other nonscientific trick.
The effort in notable: the whole issue of distorted official historic record, the double face of Section 31 and the "spy-story meet sci-fi" are all good ideas.
Unfortunately the book does nopt really exploit all of the
