^Well, you're not alone. May people were disappointed with how the ENT books went considering they started out so promising. To me it wasn't problems with the plot but problems with the writing. I'm done reading anything by Michael Martin myself. I think ENT has a lot of potential if they just get a quality author in there.
But at present I'm like you Cal888, just as let down as I was after watching These Are The Voyages. It is like the ENT relaunch went full circle.
