The NX-07 Intrepid features heavily in "Indistinguishable From Magic", set partly in 2262.

Yeah, I was familiar with Intrepid (and happy that that the class didn't become a casualty of the war)... I presumed that it was constructed after the war though, since they halted NX production after Endeavour, and (as evidenced by the existence of Intrepid) that production resumed after the war.

Wasn't it mentioned in a book that there were 13 NX-class ships constructed?

Picard says in "Indistinguishable from Magic" that "fifteen or sixteen" were constructed before the class was finally retired.

Perhaps a good question might be why the NX-01 was not repaired and redesignated as a UPF Starfleet ship?

So yup, Intrepid onwards marks a new life for the class, but the first 6, not so much.

Re: Enterprise: The Romulan War: To Brave the Storm review thread

My opening thoughts are what is with the page format? I compared it it to Vanguard's newest entry and the indents on the new Enterprise book are significantly larger. That is an very annoying tactic, the publisher did the same thing to the book, Inception.

Re: Enterprise: The Romulan War: To Brave the Storm review thread

Finally got my hands on a copy. Skimmed through the highlights. Seemed like an enjoyable book that could have been better had it been longer, or had there been another book.

My only other thought, being the poli-sci geek I am:

Why did the Special Representative of the Confederated Martian Colonies, a sovereign and independent state, sign the Federation Charter when the CMC was not one of the founding Federation Members?

The only thing I can think is that he signed as a non-signatory witness or something.

They probably witnessed the document and thereby were granted some protectorate status with representation on the Council but not necessarily any voting on Federation matters.

That's basically colonial status, like what Puerto Rico has with the U.S. I'd certainly hope the Federation doesn't embrace that kind of imperialist nonsense.
