Pax Galactica. Enemies become allies. Old secrets are at last revealed. Long-held beliefs and widely accepted truths are challenged. Man turns to leisurely pursuits.
In this golden age, two old friends are drawn together. They seek to understand, and wonder how what they have long believed, what they have been taught, was never so.
Over two hundred years ago, the life of one of Starfleet's earliest pioneers came to a tragic end, and Captain Jonathan Archer, the legendary commander of Earth's first warp-five starship, lost a close friend. Or so it seemed for many years. But with the passage of time, and the declassification of certain crucial files, the truth about that fateful day -- the day that Commander Charles "Trip" Tucker III didn't die -- could finally be revealed.
Why did Starfleet feel it was necessary to rewrite history? And why only now can the truth be told?

This fixed the ending of Enterprise.
Enterprise would have been much better ending with the episode Terra Prime. Since the show runners saw fit to end it the way they did, I am glad that this book was able to fix the problems with the end of the series. If you liked Enterprise, you need to read this book and its other follow-ups.
Really like the story...
And I'm speaking of the entire series of books that close the Enterprise cannon, But I could do without the author's blatant display of his political persuasions, namely his overt insertions of homosexuality- gay Klingons (and others) Really? It just seems to go away from established Star Trek characters...that bothers me (& i say that as a ST fan) - I realize that ST has always touched on social commentary issues but never like this. It seemed really out of place. Otherwise, the story rocks!
