    There are plenty of books about the formation of the various series. There's a Star Trek Compendium a Next Gen Compendium. There's even a Klingon Dictionary somewhere. Are there any books about Star Trek: Enterprise, and what are the titles (if any). -Danver4

    Sadly there's probably never been enough demand.

    The 2013 documentaries on the Blu-ray sets are great, and give a good insight into battles producers had with UPN, abuse from the fanbase and the burn-out contributors felt at Paramount ordering a fifth series.

    There's doubtless a very interesting Companion book that should've been made. Hard to say exactly when though, given we're all still waiting for the series' time to shine.

    I think the novelisation of "Broken Bow" (written by Diane Carey, who hated the script, and supposedly mocks it throughout the novel) had several extra pages of behind-the-scenes info but it's more about the concept and sets.

    When it comes to Diane Carey's Enterprise Broken Bow novel she got in trouble with Enterprise Creators Rick Berman and Brannon Braga when they read the book.And according to rumor she got in hot water with them and never wrote a Star trek novel again. and in a youtube video they mention this incident.

    Which is entirely her own damn fault for being so stupid as to openly mock the job she was given (and was paid for). That's like getting a job at McDonalds for the express purpose of openly telling all the customers how shitty McDonalds food is within earshot of the manager.

    It does; over 30 pages of it. There's a little bit about the casting of Bakula and the concept, but otherwise it's just costumes and set design.

    Surprised nobody has mentioned The Fifty Year Mission, which has a section dedicated to it.

    I thought it was Diane Carey's fault to do something stupid like that when she wrote a bunch of snarky commentary in a Enterprise novel she deserved to be fired.

    Although I haven't read it, it's common sense not to shit all over the story you're being paid to adapt. Not to mention, unprofessional.

    And I say that as a big fan of her other Trek novels.
