I'm not going to give that away (plus the question is rather broad). Either check out memory-beta or there are only 3 books to read.

Re: Enterprise books

I've been wondering how many ships Travis will have shot out from under him by the time the Romulan war is over. Eventually crews may start looking at him as a space age 'Jonah'.

I thought the whole The Romulan War story was supposed to be a trilogy. Was I mistaken or did that get changed? I think I read it somewhere on here, not necessarily anywhere official or anything.

Nobody ever said it was going to be a trilogy, just that it was going to be more than one book.

Thanks for confirming Christopher. I must've just misread or read a little too much into something I read in one of the posts on here. Either that or I was having one of my too much OT, too little sleep induced spirit walks and dreamed the whole thing.

This interview with Margaret Clark states that the Romulan War was to be a 3-book series:

But that's in the interviewer's words, not Margaret's. It's possible Margaret just said she was considering the possibility of doing it as three books, and the interviewer jumped to the conclusion that it was a sure thing. I mean, it's from four years ago. Any plans that far in advance are bound to be tentative. Remember when A Time to... was going to be 12 books and Typhon Pact was going to be 6?

Re: Enterprise books

She's not in charge anymore though, is she? The last time I took an interest, there were layoffs as I recall.

Maybe a poor reception for the last ENT book, has led to the new Editor-in-Chief telling the author to condense his story into one book.

I'm only guessing. So be kind, offer me a blindfold and a last cigarette before pulling that trigger.

That's speculating well beyond the evidence. To the best of my knowledge, there was never a specific, locked-down plan to do X number of books. That one article from four and a third years ago suggested it, but I've heard Margaret and others talk about The Romulan War more recently than that, and to the best of my recollection, the number of books was not specified. My impression is that the intent was to be open-ended, to let it be as many books as the story needed to be.

Re: Enterprise books

The Romulan war books were originally planned to be a 3 book trilogy trilogy I asked Micheal the other day. and Micheal said the editors last year asked him to drop parts of In shariel jaws storylines and rewrite this story to fit into the Brave the storm novel so we get two Romulan war books in one novel.
