    I would NOT add this book to my Star Trek Collection

    I have a few problems with this book. First, even though this is supposed to be an Enterprise themed book, a large percentage of the pages are devoted to non-Enterprise characters. There are a number of characters that are introduced in exceeding detail, only to be killed off in an horific manner, usually involving colorful effusions of body fluids. This book steps over the line of science fiction into science horror in a few places. There are whole chapters that introduce characters that do not play a vital role in the plot. These chapters can be skipped.<BR/><BR/>Secondly, it portrays Captian Jonathan Archer as a deeply troubled and self introsective individual who ponders every little nuance of every little problem without being able to make a decision. Acording to this book, Archer should be on medication! <BR/><BR/>Thirdly, this style of writing has a few flaws. The reading pace is slow and disjointed due to the large number of Klingon and Romulan words which appear to need a huge number of apostrophes. Very hard to read. <BR/><BR/>Lastly, the over all tone of the book is depressing and shows a negative bias for the future. The tone of this book would not be approved of by Gene Rodenberry.<BR/><BR/>I have over 200 books in my Star Trek Collection and this one will not be added to my collection! <BR/><BR/>Frankly, I am abit surprised that it was published by Pocket Books.
