    Does anybody know if there are any nonfiction reference books for Star Trek Enterprise? Specifically what I'm thinking of is an episode guide. There were "compendiums" and "companions" for the first 4 series, is there anything like that for Enterprise? Or an Enterprise Technical Manual? I'm guessing the new encyclopedia and the internet have rendered these kinds of publications null and void.

    Thanks :vulcan:

    I'm sorry there aren't any Episode guide books for Enterprise tv episodes.I wish there was a book.I've got some books that mention Enterprise but not all of the episodes.

    I do believe the Star Trek Encyclopedia by the Ocuda's was update to include the last couple years of Voyager, Nemesis and Enterprise.

    Nothing about the production of the show?

    By the time Enterprise came out, I believe they decided to stop with such books as they tend not to sell well...

    That's a shame. I would love to see an actor's behind-the-scenes account of the show, like we've seen with other shows and movies. And I enjoy the reference books.

    You'd probably need to look for back issues of Star Trek Communicator and Star Trek: The Magazine for behind the scenes stuff on ENT.

    I am not sure, if this book is what you looking for, while there are no such extras like production photos and only first two seasons are included.

    Sort of. If it was published in 2002/2003 it wouldn't be the complete series anyways. Thanks for the thought tough.

    Yes, as I written before only first two seasons are included.
    What a shame, that we probably never get such a book of ENT. I am not even sure, if it is possible to write/publish such unauthorized books today. I would volunteer, if there is a fan project. That would be great. :adore:

    Sure, you had tried Memory-Alpha before.

    A little bit old thread but, I bought this week German book "Es Lebe Star Trek-Ein Phänomen, Zwei Leben" from Björn Sülter. It was published at 2018, presented by SYFY. It goes through all episodes of franchise and ends at the end of Discovery's first season finale. I would say he is not always fair and sometimes he is very superficial, arrogant and his critic is often not substantial but cliched. As reader I can clearly see he was very tired and prejudiced at the beginning of ENT. Nevertheless, if you interested in German facts of Trek, things like who synchronize whom etc., and can read German maybe you will have a fondness from the book.

    Star Trek 101 by Terry J. Erdmann & Paula M. Block breaks down each of the 5 series and 10 films' premises, characters and provides an episode guide... including the whole of Enterprise. There's also a Top 10 from each, which is pretty accurate of fan polls. No behind the scenes or development sadly, but I've always found it invaluable all-in-one place book.

    On the other hand they just recently published a reference for TAS. If they can do a book for a forty-year old cartoon, surely there's some hope (however slim) for an ENT book at some point maybe?

    TOS stuff still sells (for now) more than Next Generation, Deep Space Nine, Voyager, and Enterprise does (so I've heard.)

    Why are you looking for books when sites like Memory Alpha are so much more complete, collecting nuggets of information from all kinds of sources? (You still have to fact-check everything, but that applies to books also.)

    Memory Alpha usually has just a few quotes in the background story notes section. I've learned all sorts of stuff on TrekBBS that isn't found on Wikipedia or Memory Alpha that must come from reference material that I'd love to have access to.

    Star trek Uncensored by Mark Altman has alot of interesting interviews about Enterprise and stories from the cast and writers that are worth reading. I have this book and really like it alot.
