Congratulations. I have preordered the first book.

Currently reading the first DTI book. Really enjoying it. Reading the e-book, that way I can keep the annotations for the book open on a web page and then change from the reader to the web page and look up the annotation. A big thank you to Christopher for all his efforts in assembling these annotations.

Well, you risk being spoiled on some things by doing that, since the annotations assume that you've read the whole book first (and recommend that you do so).

After I read a chapter I flick to the annotations for that chapter and read them and go no further. Hopefully by doing it this way I won't spoil too much.

Really enjoying the book, I have already bought the second book in the series. Is there any chance of a third DTI book?

There's been some delay with the cover, so it's not ready yet.

Meanwhile, I've been cleared to announce that my next Trek novel will be a sequel to A Choice of Futures entitled Star Trek: Enterprise -- Rise of the Federation: Tower of Babel. That's right -- the buzz for Book 1 has apparently been so strong that I've already been asked for Book 2 (indeed, I got the invitation about a week before I even turned in the manuscript for ACoF!). It's always been my hope that ACoF would be the first of a series, but for the past few months I've had to tiptoe around confirming that it now will be.

Tower of Babel will move the story of the Federation's early years forward into 2164, and the title offers a hint about its subject matter. I can't tease much about it yet, since there's a lot about Book 1 that hasn't even been publicized yet. But it will continue to develop the main story and character threads of Book 1 and will add some new ones, both following up on Enterprise and laying the groundwork for the world of The Original Series, and featuring more exploration of new worlds (at least, new to the characters, and not well-explored in canon or literature to date) than I managed to fit into Book 1. I don't yet know what its publication date will be, but considering that the manuscript due date is about seven and a half months after the previous one, I daresay it'll probably be sometime in early 2014.
Excellent news.I always hoped there would be more novels to continue the Enterprise crews adventures.More space exploration is something I wanted to see featured in the upcoming novels.Also having Character Story threads continued from the previous Romulan war books Is something I'd been hoping for a along time would continue future Enterprise books.

That is not what I said. I said that ROTF Book 2 would continue the threads from ROTF Book 1. While ROTF is in continuity with The Romulan War and moves the characters forward from where they were at the end of it, this is not just more of the same. Mike Martin told that story and brought it to a conclusion. I'm beginning the next story after it.

Sorry for any misunderstandings. I just finished reading Mike Martin's To Brave the Storm and thought you'd continue some of the Enterprise characters story threads from the last Romulan war book and then move their stories forward.Witht the creation of the Federation. I'm still glad your continuing their adventures in new novels.I'm really glad Pocket books changed their minds about fans wanting new Enterprise novels to read.And they're publishing more Enterprise novels in a new series about the creation of The Federation is great news indeed.
