This sounds interesting - I'll certainly give it a look. (Mind you, I just got Rosetta this week, so I'm a bit behind...)

Great news, Chris. I think the best man for the job and certainly an era I'm interested in reading about.

I too agree that re-watching Enterprise years later changes my opinion. Once the dust has settled I see there are quite a few good episodes, particularly season 1.

Honestly though, I'm not against there being an Enterprise between NX-01 and NCC-1701. Seems odd that the name would lay dormant for roughly eighty-five years.
There was Captain Geoffrey Thorpe's USS Enterprise from Harve Bennett's unmade prequel movie, Star Trek: The Academy Years.
Would love to read that script in full. Anyone got it????

More like two years after the war ends (July 2160), a year after the Federation is founded (August 2161).

Is there actually a reason for the NX-01 to be in mothballs? Considering Starfleet's losses during the Romulan War and that it still seems to be a functional ship, albeit battle damaged.
NCC-1701 is suppose to be the first Federation ship to have the name Enterprise.
To Brave the Storm indicated that the ship was too badly damaged in the Battle of Cheron to be repairable. As for why they couldn't rebuild it... well, maybe there are reasons for that. All we know is that, as BillJ said, there is no Federation ship named Enterprise until NCC-1701.
I suspect a 'twist' in the Enterprise situation...

I know it's getting a bit ahead of things, but how many novels are you considering, and going up to when ? Would you run it right up to TOS ?

Looks like I have a reason to check out Enterprise again.

At this point I'm just trying to focus on getting the one novel written. Beyond that, it's all hypothetical, but I think that with a title like Enterprise -- Rise of the Federation, further books would stick pretty close to the early years.

That said, a title like "Rise" of the Federation allows for a little more range than something like "Birth" of the Federation would. I'm pretty excited to see where this can go!

Sounds neat. I'm looking forward to the new DS9 novel as well next year.

Is that really true, though? Maybe there could have been another Enterprise in the years between 2161 and 2245, just with a different registry number. Unless, of course, it's been actually stated on-screen somewhere that the NCC-1701 was absolutely the first Enterprise in Starfleet and I just don't know about it, which is certainly possible.

It was stated onscreen. In "Trials and Tribble-ations," Sisko referred to NCC-1701 as "the first Enterprise" and O'Brien called it "the original Enterprise." Also, the dedication plaque for 1701-A says "Second starship to bear the name," B says "Third," and so on. Although in that case I would assume "the name" means "USS Enterprise" as opposed to just "Enterprise."

Of course, all those references come from before ENT was created, and the existence of an earlier Enterprise is a retcon. But the best rationalization is that NCC-1701 was the first Federation starship of that name.

Bah! I can't believe I forgot those references. I just watched "Trials and Tribble-ations" relatively recently.

Yeah, I personally wouldn't have a problem with there being another Federation Enterprise existing prior to the NCC-1701, but if it's actually been stated in-universe that there wasn't, then there you go.

Re: Coming July 2013: STAR TREK ENTERPRISE — RISE OF THE FEDERATION

This is great news, Christopher! I'm very interested in this time period, and you're easily my favorite of the current Trek authors (Trek lit just doesn't get any better than the DTI books or The Buried Age). I'm a little sad to hear that you won't be using the upcoming First 150 Years book as a source. Even authors can't get preprints or pdfs of upcoming books when it's relevant to what they're writing?
