We know for a fact that Section 31 draws agents from outside of Starfleet. In "Extreme Measures," it was established that one of its agents was a member of Federation President Jaresh-Inyo's Cabinet.
I haven't seen that episode in years, so I had forgotten about it when I originally posted.

What's the third one going to be called? Rise of the Federation - Gazelles Giving Birth?

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

My copy arrived this morning, I read the first three chapters straight away. Absolutely loving it so far, really enjoying how so many obscure bits from Enterprise are being embraced and joined up in interesting ways, makes the astro-political scene in the Enterprise era seem much more realisitic than all these species we saw once in local space and until now, heard nothing of again.

Congratulations! I hope to see this series in the stores and that it does a faithful job to the original series in bridging the Enterprise - TOS gap. Maybe we can see some Daedelus class ships and Captain April's father or grandfather?

^Daedalus-class ships were featured heavily in the preceding Romulan War duology, and one is included in A Choice of Futures.

I saw the one Daedelus so far. The second I read your thread I bought up a copy, it arrived yesterday, and got a little over halfway through last night! It's an easy read, and the dialog flows very well. I didn't remember all the alien species from Enterprise, so for me I had to look up what they looked like. I kind of which these books had a few pictures inside or elsewhere if for nothing else than a refresher, and perhaps an image of the new Starfleet uniform you described on page 10 on the next cover would be a great help visualizing it.

I do hope you plan on doing another ST:E novel at some point soon, as you've done well so far and I enjoy your storyline. It'd be interesting to see Archer's reaction to an Orion girl in Starfleet serving on T'Pol's ship, or perhaps one or two Martian humans for variety's sake. Your characterizations of the Andorians and Tellarites were good at capturing their species' outlook on things, which I appreciated. Please keep up the good work sir!

I agree. The building blocks of all the species, and the thoughts on Andorian bridge design were well received. Lots of tidbits at possible future developments for Starfleet.

Here's the link to my crude uniform sketch again:

I'm just a few weeks from finishing Book 2. I'm hoping there will be more.

I've already included a mix of humans -- Terran, Alpha Centaurian, Vegan, Space Boomer, and maybe more. But there is at least one Martian character in Book 2.

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

Christopher, are the uniforms in the link you gave intended to also be a bridge to the Kelvin unis from ST XI?

^The uniforms are meant to be part of the entire evolutionary lineage of Starfleet uniforms. I took cues from many future uniform designs.

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

Thank you, sir. That's just about what I thought it looked like, though I don't recall the pockets. It's a tunic/pants combination though, as opposed to the old jumpsuits, right?

I especially liked the origins of the symbols of the 13 Constitution-class vessels. That I caught as soon as I saw it and smiled. Well done!
