    Well, there currently aren't very solid plans for anything, since the process of developing projects for 2013 has only just started. So that's not exactly conclusive.

    True, but I'm told that Martin indicated on his Facebook page that he thinks further ENT novels are unlikely unless sales on To Brave the Storm are good.

    But, as you noted, that's not a definitive end to ENT novels -- after all, that could change in just a few years' time if someone comes up with an idea that excites the Pocket authors and makes them think the audience will be excited.

    Enterprise would the the series most suited to reach an ending. I'd be ok with that.

    Considering that TNG, DS9 and VOY did come to definitive conclusions on TV, and Pocket continued the stories anyway, makes it crystal clear it's about how much money they're making off the Enterprise name and not about the story ending.

    It was the least popular series on TV, and the post-finale books were tedious. Outlook not so good.

    At times like this I almost regret pitching a couple of Enterprise-era books...

    (Then again, they're both set during the series, not after)

    Back to the drawing board, eh?

    Not necessarily. Just make them occur as close to the end of the series as possible, to be in a position to leap over the relaunch Romulan war novel series all together. A bi-pass procedure like in 'Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy'. :guffaw:

    I haven't read the RW books yet, but I did read the other two. I really enjoyed The Good That Men Do, and despite some some strange guest characters I also enjoyed Kobayashi Maru.

    Thanks for the reviews. Judging by the above comments the ENT books aren't as good as the DS9 relaunch books then.

    Does anyone know the title of this MACO novel? Could it be Last Full Measure?

    In light of the news that RW was reduced from 3 to 2 books, I picked up the 2 RW books. Now I have to read TGTMN novel, Kobyashi Maru, and the 2 RW on my to-read pile. I'll probably also read the old TOS book also taling about the The Kobyashi Maru experiences of Kirk (and his crew?) that came out several years ago.

    Are there other novels in Trek lit that expound upon "references" in the any of the tv shows, such as the Khitmer Accords and others? I believe the RW was referenced on TOS tv?

    These days it's hard to find ones that don't.

    I would infer that the "Hoshi novel" would be Rosetta by Dave Stern, and that the "MACO novel" would be Last Full Measure by Martin and Mangels.

    Fair point. :) There are "biggies" though like the RW and things like the Kitomer Accords (in the Lost Era books?) and even the Kobyashi Maru that have now been explained. Earlier there were was the Eugenic Wars explained. I imagine there are only a few biggies left and the Saturn Mission is now the subject of a novel too. What's been tackled in Trek lit of the "biggie references" Trek references? What's left to be tackled? I imagine everyone has an opinion.

    I mean, that depends on what you mean by "biggie."

    But I can certainly think of a few historical events that haven't been covered yet. We've seen the Earth-Romulan War, for instance, but we didn't really get to see how Earth and its allies forged the Federation. We've seen glimpses of the early Federation here and there, but we've never really seen its evolution. We've never seen the battle or mission at Axanar that was supposedly so important to the future of the Federation ("Court-Martial" and "Whom Gods Destroy"); we've never seen a novel about why the idea of admitting Coridan to the UFP had Federation worlds at one-another's throats like they were in "Journey to Babel;" we've never seen a novel about the establishment of the Martian colonies, or their rebellion against Earth referenced in the Romulan War novels; we've never seen a novel about how the nations of the Earth finally joined together to form United Earth; we've never seen a novel about Federation-Cardassian first contact; we've never seen a novel about World War III, or about the decades of unrest that apparently preceded it -- the Bell Riots and their surrounding issues, for instance; etc.

    So the plans for the 2013 schedule should include the first couple of novels in the 'History of the Federation' series.

    If we're lucky !

    Is that really needed? We see what happened on Coridan in "Shadows of P'Jem" (ENT) and the attempt to deprive Coridan of trade in "Demons" (ENT). The planet's population was further depleted by civil wars and Romulan attack ("The Good that Men Do"). And that Sarek had finally succeeded in bringing Coridan into the UFP ("Sarek", TNG). And its short straw in "Destiny".

    Well, no, it's not needed. None of it is needed. I was just trying to come up with potential areas of Trek history that hadn't been the subjects of novels yet.
