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

Any idea about the chances of ROTF 3 yet, or will it depend on performance of the first two ?

I'm kind of hoping for something like the Vanguard series...

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

Some SCE stories from this period might be helpful. Have the Xindi have slaver Vegan tyranny connections to explain their variations as laid down by other worlds. The Xindi were a kind of proto-federation in some respects after all.

The SCE element might be to explain warp accelerators, cosmic strings and other shipping lanes to allow warp craft to cut travel between worlds only in thiose lanes, laid down millenia ago...

So Christopher, are you excited? In just a couple more weeks your latest book will be out. And then it will begin. The praising and the condemning, the second guessing and the kvetching, and best of all... the begging for when you'll be putting up the annotations. ;-)

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

I've got this book pre-ordered and can't wait to read and review it! I'm very intrigued by the post-Federation Archer and T'pol possibilities. Also, the politics as to how the Federation is shaped.

While I doubt it'll cover what I REALLY want (Federation economics! Federation military defense treaties!) I bet it'll be awesome.

I am really looking forward to this, after the last Enterprise books I thought that would be it for ages but thankfully we are getting this.

^I just posted my design sketch as part of my latest site update. Here's a direct link:

Apologies for the crude artwork, but it's just about getting the idea across. I was hoping the cover artist might do something based on this sketch, but no such luck.

Oh I like that, very nice in-between design, which, pleasingly, feels most strongly like the Kelvin uniform; the way the piping goes across, and the slightly muted colours. I like where you're going with the explanation for the different insignias too.
