Matthew Kresal
As part of my on-again-off-again reading of the various Enterprise novels, I've circled back around at last to the first of the "relaunch" novels published well over a decade ago now. Last Full Measure, unlike the other books, is set not after the series but during the middle of it. Indeed, during the very earliest part of season three's Xindi War arc. In doing so, Micahel A. Martin and Andy Mangels offer some fresh and intriguing insights into the conflicts within the conflict both between Star ...more

EXCELLENT character work. Miss the Enterprise people!!
David King
"Last Full Measure" by Michael A. Martin & Andy Mangels was the first of the Enterprise re-launch novels to be released which continued telling original stories after the end of the TV series. Although I will clarify that outside the framing story, "Last Full Measure" is set firmly within the time period of the show and actually follows on quite well from the last Star Trek book I read, "The Expanse".

The central storyline is quite standard compared to most of the other stories set in Enterprise'
The Enterprise is exploring the Delphic Expanse in search of the Xindi, who have attacked Earth and killed 7 million people. In an effort to stop a second attack, Archer and his crew search desperately for the Xindi homeworld. New additions to the crew are 36 soldiers from Military Assault Command Operations group (MACOs) who are tasked with handling any combat-based missions. Tensions are running a bit high between the MACOs and the Starfleet crew due to cramped quarters and differing philosoph ...more

A book that is a stand-alone story during the beginnings of the Xindi conflict. It does a good job at describing more about the MACOs onboard, but as a fan of Star Trek Enterprise, I would have liked more depth about some of the main casts that get no love, like Mayweather. The story is engaging and fun, but it may drag just a little bit in the beginning.

It is a fun read for any Star Trek Enterprise fan. While this is a stand-alone story, it does set up a few things for the next book, which can

Well, lets say it was all right. Enjoyable, off-canon true, but still a fairly good read. It did drag a little at times, and I was slightly annoyed at the poor character development (particularly Travis, I can't recall how many times the fact he was a space-boomer was mentioned). I would recommend this to definite STE fans, otherwise steer clear. ...more

I feel weird rating this one because A. I read almost all of it but technically not all, I found myself skimming and then skipping ahead to the end after I got to the point where I had less than 100 pages to go, and B. just because I did that does not mean I don't think this book might appeal to someone else.

The authors (duo of Martin and Mangels) had apparently written much fiction before this, including working together, but this book felt like a first-time effort with an awful lot of repetiti

It's difficult to fathom why this book was written. Set early in the third season of Enterprise, it's a slight story that doesn't add much of anything to the Xindi conflict. All the themes essentially duplicate what we see in the series instead of illuminating anything new in them. Tension between Starfleet and MACOs? We saw that played out between Reed and Hayes. Tension between Starfleet optimism and post-9/11 "whatever it takes" nonsense? Yes, we got that from the show too. Maybe this book wo ...more

Oh My Goodness. That Epilogue comes out of nowhere. Hardly related and probably unnecessary but it's still a treasure. Suggest that ENT fans read just for the experience of the epilogue.

This one fits right in with the TV series. It has the same kind of energy, the same grit and all of the emotions that were flaring at the beginning of the search for the Xindi.

The Starfleet Vs MACO drama is alive in this story and as you'd expect the teams find themselves in situations that allow them to learn
Benjamin Hall
The good: it's a well-written story. I can't say the same of every Star Trek book that I've read. It gave some new and interesting perspective into the relationship between the MACOs and Starfleet.

The bad: It is paced very slowly. It doesn't feel like much happens. Which is part of the problem. It's a supplemental story to the existing Xindi storyline. It adds nothing new.

It's an okay read. The characters felt right. It just was kind of irrelevant.

Not Impressed

Most disappointing book I have read about Star Trek.
A build up to nothing, I would not recomend to others.

Well, my first experience with an Enterprise novel and overall I've come away feeling... meh. I want to preface this by explaining that I wasn't the biggest fan of Enterprise when it first aired but last year I re-watched it and gained a new sense of appreciation for it. This novel though just didn't do it justice in my opinion.

First of all the plot. Its set within the third season and the story just didn't grab me. I knew right away that due to the plot and the setting, this story was going to

Okay, let's get to the point - it was wishy-washy. I only read the book because I was keen to read The Good That Men Do and Romulan War novels, and I figured I should cover the entire Enterprise relaunch from the start. And while I don't regret reading it, it was far from a masterpiece.

The premise of the story is good - the tension between Starfleet and the MACOs during season three wasn't explored much in the TV series outside of Reed and Hayes bashing each other up, so Martin and Mangles evide

The good: classic self contained Star Trek novel with a decent story and plot.

The bad: captain archer never, ever would have tortured that alien. The authors did a disservice to themselves by inserting politics into their dedication. They were trying to make a connection to the CIA and their enhanced interrogation techniques. Captain archer never would have done that.

For the record I don't want to know about whether you thought the Iraq war was justified or not. I'm reading your book because I

An interesting and action-driven story, Last Full Measure was a fun read. However, the failure on the authors' parts to adhere to established Trek canon (character deaths, T'Pol's rank or lack thereof) were annoying and did take me out of the story somewhat. I understand that this is obsessive attention to detail, but I'm a Star Trek fan and this is a Star Trek novel; what do you expect? All of that said, Last Full Measure was worth reading, and the examination of the relationship between the St ...more
Set early on when the Mako's first turn up on Enterprise, this novel looks at the differences between Mako's and Starfleet. From having to share tiny rooms to having vastly different philosophies about everything. There's some nice character moments, and looks at how far they will go to save the Earth. The plot is the Enterprise trying to find the Xindi, and stumbling on a Xindi base. This is a decent enough story but it is the characters that will keep you reading. A good read. ...more
I decided not to finish this book for 100% subjective reasons. This novel was very well written, and the characterization of the Enterprise crew was spot-on. I also loved how fleshed out the authors made the MACO characters.

Unfortunately, I found myself less interested in a book that takes place between two episodes of the show, so like I said, that's all on me. I think that anyone else who enjoys reading Star Trek Enterprise novels should absolutely give this one a shot.

Far better than much of the other books of this genre. It's an actual Sci Fi novel with political intrigue. But I would have gotten more out of it if I was more invested in this particular Star Trek (Archer/Enterprise) series. ...more

It's a Star Trek novel (yes, a theme in my current reads). But it's from the TV show Enterprise--a nightmare of Trek in my humble opinion. It's not an awful book, but I wasn't a big fan of ENT. I'll stop here before I get into geek-speak ramblings :) ...more
