The crime is that they let Micheal Martin keep writing them.

They might not be great, but they are better than nothing; especially in the case of Enterprise. At least they give some resolution to a prematurely canceled series.

And speaking of nothing, that's pretty much what we have now. I don't consider one movie every four years much of a franchise, whether you like Abrams Trek or not.

Better than nothing---a ringing endorsement!

We certainly don't get anywhere near enough Enterprise books now (two years since the last one is a crime) so I would like to see more Enterprise novels first. However, Enterprise Era stories centering around Columbia would be a great addition. A series working up to the events of the Destiny series would be very interesting and give us another take on the that part of Star Fleet history.
I think that Star Trek: The Original series has been getting it worse than Enterprise. There has been a lack of books that feature the Kirk's crew together on the Enterprise. A lot of the most recently published books have been backstories about Captain Pike's crew, or some other backstory that doesn't feature Kirk's crew. Don't get me wrong I enjoy a good backstory, but I don't want them to take the lion's share of published books for the series.

However, the book "Star Trek: A Choice of Catastrophes" is due on August 30, 2011 & does feature Kirk's crew together on the Enterprise. I hope this means that they intend to get back to publishing more books that focus on Kirk's crew on the Enterprise.

I would have to disagree about Michael Martin writing the Enterprise books. I have found these books by him to be extremely well written. Reading these books make me realize how much we lost out on when they cancelled Enterprise & cut short by 3 years. The final 2 seasons of Enterprise were quite good in my opinion. These books really show there were so many good stories left to be told about the Enterprise NX-02 & Archer's crew.

I would have really enjoyed seeing the "Romulan War" storyline that is in the books be done as episodes during the final 3 seasons that were cut short from Enterprise.

Re: Columbia NX-02 backstory?

As a fan of DS9, VOY AND now ENT, i do wish there had been books on the NX-02 and her crew, they were partly in Star Trek Destiny trilogy. Even then shame about the ship and crew - Erika Hernandez.
