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.

An ok Enterprise book with an interesting ending!

"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 Enterpr

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

I enjoyed it. The story telling gets a little monotonous at times. The ending is wonderful, the beginning is wonderful. It's the book in which they start to " fix " what left broken in the last episode of ENT.

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

I think that this book would have been a lot stronger had I not read David Mack's Destiny trilogy first. This book definitely seems to write the book on the relationship that MACOs had with early Starfleet - but it does it through the eyes of Mayweather and Reed (more successfully with the former than the latter). Yet, I feel that if you really wanted a strong feel for the imposition of the MACOs on Enterprise's Starfleet, you should read David Mack's Destiny and give this one a pass.. It's a be ...more

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.
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.

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 :)

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.

Pretty basic adaptation of a portion of the Enterprise series. Some new character and situations added, not a lot of surprises. First in the new relauch series.

Great story line. This was an adventure not shown on the series but fits very well into the storyline. Has a surprise about one of the characters on the show who was "killed"...:)
