Personally I think it's crap. Its wanna be Star Wars.
What possible resemblance is there between Vanguard and Star Wars? If anything, it goes in completely the opposite direction.

I think the only reason its so well regarded is because the authors have a pretty loud Internet presence on the boards and Facebook.
That doesn't make any sense at all. When readers don't like a book, they don't hesitate to say so online even if the writers are active there. I've seen people trash books by people with an active web presence and praise books by people who never post online. You're proposing a cause-and-effect relationship that simply doesn't exist.

I am really looking forward to the series ending and the schedule freeing up to the Star Trek I know and love.
They've never published more than two Vanguard novels in a single year, and there were none at all in 2008 or 2010. Eight books in seven years is hardly clogging the schedule.
