The Good That Men Do (Star Trek: Enterprise #11)
In this golden age, two old friends are drawn together. They seek to understand, and wonder how what they have long believed, what they have been taught, was never so.
Over two hundred years ago, the life of one ...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

That said, pick this up if your eyes bled during the series finale, as it'll make you feel a lot better.
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
Now, before I go much further, I've had a contentious relationship with this book since it was released. As one of Enterprise's biggest fans, and one of the few to actually enjoy the series finale, "These Are the Voyages...," it was a slap in the face to discover that Pocket Books and its entire pocket universe had decided that it would officially join the voice of dissent and write a ...more

However, I thought the Jake Sisko look back in time to be a bit much. All of this history just somehow was forgotten or buried and these two guys are watching it for the first time over popcorn and drinks? A bit cheesy.
Looking forward to the next book in the series.
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

I think this is the final Star Trek book that these writers work on. At least I hope it is. If not, their agents must be miracle workers.

Not to be confused with a direct book version of the script. This has a lot more info and is an alternative story that has recently been declassified and read by Nog and Jake from DS9.
A good read. I half expected Riker and Troi to appear in the book, like the show, but was glad when they did not.
