High above the planet Earth, an alien probe appears -- and in an unspeakably horrific instant, releases a deadly blast that strafes the planet's surface, leaving a miles-wide, smoldering crater of destruction in its wake. Millions die in Florida, Cuba, and Venezuela, their lives blotted out in a blazing millisecond. Just as swiftly, the probe implodes and crashes on the pl ...more

A good novelization from when Enterprise started getting good!

The "problem" with adapting two episodes of the series into one adventure is they don't naturally go together. Yes, this is a continuing story and one follows the other. However, The Expanse has a definite end point and The Xindi begins a soft reboot for the series. You can see where those two episodes end and begin in this book.

That being said, just enough is added to this story to make it different from the series. There is more emotional stakes here than in the show; we get to see and hear th

"The Expanse" by J.M. Dillard is a novelization of two Star Trek Enterprise episodes; namely the Season 2 Finale and the Season 3 premier. There was one little quirk regarding this novelization though in that it actually included various scenes that were deleted from the episodes prior to them airing which were quite interesting to read.

The story deals with an attack on Earth by a previously unknown alien species (or actually 5 separate species that evolved on one planet) known as the Xindi. Aft

This is the novelization of the first couple of episodes of a LONG story-arc; as such, there is no satisfactory conclusion to be had. So if you don't mind reading a book that starts a very major plotline, with a very specific goal for the characters, and doesn't see them through to their success or failure at accomplishing that goal, and which is not, to the best of my knowledge, even part of a series that will continue the story elsewhere, you should enjoy this book as it is well-written and ha ...more

Another straightforward novelization from J.M. Dillard, sticking mostly to the script, with some insight into the characters' heads that was much appreciated. I particularly enjoyed her takes on Phlox, Trip, and T'Pol, though of course I'm biased toward Trip. Especially in this story - oh, the angst!

I believe the book was well written. I do remember seeing both series the book is constructed from, but I will have to see both episodes in its entirety to catch any differences. For we all know the book and story television is two different things.

... although it would nice for 'someone' to write some other episode novelizations, to carry on this story.
