    Another thought provoker

    Author brings together at least four intertwining major events showing what can happen when sentients look out for numero uno instead of an overall scene. Especially liked the speeches to the Vulcans. As always can be applied to all times of life.

    A faithful continuation of the short lived series

    It's sometimes hard writing reviews for these Enterprise books. They cover such a large amount of time with a large amount of characters and I tend to read them over a fairly long period. In this case it was only a month or so, but with so many other books in between my brain sometimes gets muddled. One of the things I have always loved about science fiction in general and Star Trek in particular is the way it talks about our modern day issues through the lens of the future. I had to double check the publication date because so much of it felt like it was written in a post-Trump world. The would-be civil war on Vulcan feels very much like the modern day United States and the ongoing conflict between Trump supporters and sane Americans. On Vulcan the fear of outside influence, the borderline xenophobia has definite parallels to the bigoted white supremacists murdering protesters back here on Earth. I feel like all of the major characters from the TV show have some nice moments to grow. Archer is coming to terms with realising he's not just an explorer. T'Pol continues to embrace Starfleet while balancing it with her Vulcan culture. Trip battles with his inner demons while trying to reconcile the person he's become with the person he was. Hoshi balances her relationship with her career. Malcolm and Travis face their own battles against an old foe. And Phlox seems to just enjoy himself. There's a moment where Travis laments that they're never going to get back together. It's a sad feeling I share. Part of me longs for the days of these characters sharing a ship, going on adventures but time moves on and so do the characters. Even the namesake of the books, Enterprise has become a museum piece. So, while part of me longs for a return to that big family of characters I love that they're given room to grow on their own, and I suspect sooner or later they'll all cross paths again. People sometimes dismiss these stories as "fan fiction", and as long as fans such as Christopher Bennett continue to write such enjoyable "fan fiction", I'll keep reading them.
