So will this be in the vain of the last few books Chris has written? To much telling us what is happening and not actually "showing" us. If so, if I see it in the library, I might pick it up, but Chris "filling in gaps" + The Federations formative years = no appeal for me.
YMMV but I have come to enjoy Christopher's works for their deep use of science (even if I find that a bit crazy given I'm squarely on the "Star Trek is space fantasy" side of things) and continuity welding.
The Department of Temporal Investigations
really helped make the Novelverse feel like one coherent universe with the rest of the setting to me. If he can do that with Enterprise as a series in its entirety, I'll be quite pleased.
