The only downside to this announcement is now I feel like I'm being forced to read the 2nd Romulan War book.
As I just said in the "Strangers From The Sky Vs. First Contact" thread, we know from canon that after the Earth-Romulan War ends, the Romulans are never heard from again until "Balance of Terror" 105 years later. So the story of the Romulan War is decisively over. What I'm doing here, therefore, is not a continuation of the earlier books' storyline, but the beginning of a whole new storyline. So it works fine as a jumping-on point, so long as you have a basic familiarity with Enterprise the TV series.

That's good to know! I'm very interested in picking up ANY Trek novel by you, but I don't really feel like reading the Romulan War series. I might eventually, but knowing I can just pick up this one and have fun, is good news!!

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

As much as I agree and disagree with you personally here on the TrekBBS, I honestly can't think of a better author to write for the next chapter of Enterprise and her crew not to mention the founding of the Federation. This is the first book for next year I'll be anticipating.

I wish you well on your endeavour to take this book on. It's an epic chance that many a Trek fan and writer would dream of. Dude you're writing about the founding of the Federation! Don't screw it up.

Christopher, I can't tell you how deeply excited I am to finally read this story. Finally, we have a new ENT novel post-Romulan War!

You seem like the right choice, I can't wait to see your take on the characters!

This is now my most anticipated Trek read for next year! Now if you could just find a little time to write another TMP period novel, that would be all sorts of awesome. Just sayin'... no pressure...are you writing it yet?

Yay!!!! Love it when Chris Bennett gets a chance to stretch his legs. Always wondered how the Federation ironed over the inevitable wrinkles. Wonder what the Tellarite contribution was, that is the least character-developed founding species, I believe.

This is great! I had feared the Enterprise books series was over after the Romulan War duology, happy to hear that the adventure continues.

I have to admit I actually let out an audible excited squeal when I saw the the title of the thread, and then who was writting the book. I've been dying to read this story since Enterprise ended, so that has me excited, but knowing that you're writing it makes me even more excited. I cannot wait.

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

Bennett's books are usually fairly decent, so I'll give this one a go. Even though my interest in Enterprise is pretty much non-existent at this point.

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

I'm very excited by this. I love Enterprise, but have really had to drag myself through all the post-series books to date. My favourite Trek author taking it on, in what sounds like a very interesting take on the series, is excellent news!
