Very cool. It's amazing how I tend to have more enthusiasm for the ENT novel line (Voyager, too) then I ever did for the show.

Some of my friends who are Enterprise fans wanted me to tell you congratulations .And they definitely plan on buying your new Enterprise books and pass the news onto their friends about buying supporting your Enterprise novels.So we can all read about the further adventures of the Enterprise crew.

Congratulations on Book 2, and looking forward to reading Book 1! I am currently in the process of watching Enterprise on Netflix and should be done with it well before Book 1 is released. Guess I need to get serious about catching up on the previous ENT post-finale books as well!

Hi Christopher

I don't want to tempt fate, but sales note withstanding, it looks as if the series is up and running. Any thoughts about its ultimate destination - taking it close to TOS would mean most of the Enterprise crew would be dead of old age !

How about the number of instalments - are you viewing it as a finite series like Vanguard ?

Please feel free to tell me to mind my own business...

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

^I have some ideas for how far I'd want to take this as a series, but they're tentative, and I don't want to say I plan to do something only to change my mind a couple of years down the road, or be forced to change direction due to external circumstances. (Heck, if that Kickstarter campaign to resurrect ENT on Netflix actually bore fruit, it would pretty much scuttle my plans.)

But it seems to me that if you're doing a series called Rise of the Federation, especially under the Enterprise banner, that suggests that its focus would stay on the early years. If, by some chance, the novels did reach the point of continuing the story past that formative phase somewhere down the road, it would probably fall under a different umbrella title.

Which one? Terran? Klingon? Romulan? Galactic? Boardwalk?

That would be Terran.

Although Klingon might not be a bad idea either.

Not necessarily.
T'Pol was still alive after being thrown back 117 years (Eฒ) and lived well into the 2250s in "A Less Perfect Union". The same story mentions Elizabeth Cutler as the second-last survivor of the NX-01.

Archer lived to see the launch of the NCC-1701, presumably in both ongoing timelines (April's Enterprise in New Trek). Lieutenant Commander (retired) Hoshi Sato died at the hands of Kudos (In a Mirror, Darkly). (not necesarrily canon)

People have a long life expectancy in the future. See butt-kicking Elias Vaughn, a centenary.
