I just finished the book today and it was awesome. I find very little to fault with it besides Hoshi not getting a promotion and being a little confused as to Valdore's status at the end. I loved the length and it really feels like at best we go the first part of a trilogy. I hate that there isn't an Enterprise book for next year because it will really suck to go two years before the continuation. The Daedelus class being older than the NX shocked me but I can go with it. It was nice to finally see some crew change also. I feel pity for the NX class though. So tragic.
