Thanks for the heads up about the elephant in the room. "Enterprise" how does one remember it? Of course, it is also a TV series that I shall have to see sometime. I am still going through Season 4 of DS9. Much else to do. Anyway, still reading "Constitution" and shall be reading "Enterprise" soon. My Brother's Keeper
trilogy by Jan Michael Friedman (1999). Very enjoyable to revisit much material prior to the 5 year mission.
