Re: Columbia NX-02 backstory?
We certainly don't get anywhere near enough Enterprise books now (two years since the last one is a crime) so I would like to see more Enterprise novels first. However, Enterprise Era stories centering around Columbia would be a great addition. A series working up to the events of the Destiny series would be very interesting and give us another take on the that part of Star Fleet history.
If anything in this life is certain, if history has taught us anything, it is that you can kill anyone.
