Phlox could also still be alive. I seem to remember it being implied Denobulans were long-lived. Didn't Phlox have a grandmother who lived to be 400 or something? Then again, he didn't seem to be around on the other NX-02 in E2 even though T'Pol was. Though I guess he might have been killed in battle or something.

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

Wow more new ENT book cool i like season 3 and 4 of ENT. I know I Know season 3 not there best work a bit dark you say but to each there own.
I like the relaunch Ent i have read so far but have not read the Romulan War books yet just to busy with tng/DS9/Voy Relaunch book but have new copies on shelf to read. But knowing there is more ENT to come and by Christopher Bennett makes me want to catch up and read them all.
I will be pre ordering these book as soon as they come up on the book order system at local book shop.

The Romulan war books are good. I just finished rereading the last book in the series.There's some great character development in the books.It certainly makes me look forward to reading the new book coming out in a few months.

I knew there would be someone else that enjoyed them !

I fully expect Christopher to take it to another level though...

Just two under the banner title of The Romulan War, but essentially all four post-finale ENT novels to date (The Good That Men Do, Kobayashi Maru, The Romulan War: Beneath the Raptor's Wing and The Romulan War: To Brave the Storm) form a single 4-part story arc starting with the buildup to the war and concluding with the founding of the Federation.

Thanks much; just wanted to make sure all were accounted for to prep for yours. Was there supposed to be (or will be) a third title, In (something's) Jaws or something like that? I know it sounds strange, but I was under the impression that there was a Romulan War-related book with a title similar to that.

In Shariel's Jaws was going to be the second Romulan War book when it was slated to be a trilogy; but when it was condensed to just two books, the title was changed.

Well, as I've said, I'm starting a new story which hopefully can stand fairly well on its own, without being too dependent on previous books. But I definitely understand wanting to be thorough.

There were originally plans to do The Romulan War as a trilogy, yes, but the decision was made to reduce it to two books.

Thanks much, folks. I prefer to be a completest when I read Trek (well, as much as I have time for...).

It's too bad that that decision was made, since the first book was at a decent pace, but then the second book just felt rushed, and was just meant to get the most minimalist facts in.

It would be hard to condense 2 different manuscripts for 2 different books to Finish the Romulan war miniseries. In Shariel's jaws sounded like it would've been a really interesting story. Startrek.com has a interview with Micheal Martin where he mentions what the books storyline would've been had it been published .

Would be nice to see that interview.

But Christopher,

Does this mean that you are now the sole author on ENT?

Just to clarify, your book will pick up from the other books right?

At the moment, that seems to be the case, but these decisions are usually made one book at a time.

As I've said, it's part of the same overall continuity, but it's beginning a new story. There's a gap of over a year between the UFP founding ceremony at the end of To Brave the Storm and the beginning of A Choice of Futures.
