Here's a tip: words like "mediocre" and "rubbish" are likely to be off-putting to decision makers, as well as to people who might otherwise side with you. It's much better-framed as, "I love Enterprise and its characters, and I would love to buy and read more novels, but I feel like (fill in the blank) has been missing from previous releases." You can get the message across and still be nice about it.
Why shouldn't I say 'the book was rubbish' when it was. I don't want to wrap my opinion in faux political correctness. The books were not good and them going away isn't any loss, because there are dozens of fanfiction novels out there that beat them by a mile. Why should I beg for a commercial product, if I get something vastly superior for free.
