The Romulan Star Empire engages in all out war against Earth, determined once and for all to stop the human menace from spreading across the galaxy.
Earth stands alone.
The Coalition of Planets has shattered, with Vulcan, Andor, and Tellar abrogating the treaty. Their pledge to come to the mutual defense of any power that is attacked has been shunted aside. Horrified by how easily the Romulans can seize control of their advanced starships, turning them into weapons, Andor and Tellar have joined Vulcan on the sidelines. Humanity is now the only thing that stands between the Romulan Star Empire and total domination of the galaxy.
To drive humans from the stars, the Romulans employ ruthless and murderous tactics...and even dare to strike on the Vulcan homeworld with the hopes of demoralizing their Vulcan brethren. Heartened by their victories, the Romulans carry their all-out war assault closer to the heart of humanity—Earth.
But the tattered remains of Starfleet stand unwavering, with the resolution that never again would any enemy strike ever reach Earth. On the front lines of the Earth- Romulan War is the United Earth flagship, the Starship Enterprise. Her captain, Jonathan Archer, has seen his vessel of exploration become a battleship. Once hailed for his work bringing the Coalition of Planets into existence, Archer is now a pariah. Undaunted, the captain keeps fighting, searching for allies and determined to do his duty: to save Earth and forge a new federation of planets.
A much more fitting end.....
Season 4 of Enterprise showed a lot of promise in leading everyone to the events of the original series. The follow up novels that corrected a glaring problem in the supposed series finale have really been enjoyable. This book gave me much of what I wanted, but at times it jumped around so much that I wanted more than it gave. How did Archer become the first federation president? How did Trip and T'Pol reunite? This novel really could have been two. Otherwise I really enjoyed it. Too bad it is now over....
This book was awesome!
It took me two whole days to read it!!!
What's the next volume or series of star trek enterprise????!
Just skip the Romulan war novels
What should be an epic Star Trek event novel series is a contrived plot disaster. I got to chapter 17 and I couldn't take anymore of the Trip story with the spy flipping spy plot, it's contrived and poorly written. The war itself feels like a bunch of lame skirmishes. If you want to read a good space warfare series check out the Honor Harrington novels. I am never going to read any other trek novel written by this author. I was getting no entertainment value reading this book, I was going to read it just to finish but it became too much of a chore.
