Overview

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.

    Good Read...

    Michael A. Martin does Star Trek: Enterprise better than he does the other Trek franchises for which he writes. Star Trek Enterprise: The Romulan War: To Brave The Storm is another fine example of his efforts. He explores several different corners of the Federation, their allies, and adversaries. After the previous chapter in this series, Beneath the Raptor's Wing, which weighed in at well over 500 pages, this novel is a relative light weight and at times feels rushed (I would have enjoyed another 100 paged to flesh out the plotlines). As an avid reader of Trek fiction, and yes, a Trek fan of over 40 years, I don't find Martin's Starfleet Heroes "Preachy". Like them, I too am hopeful that these reluctant warriors will be allowed to return to exploring the galaxy in the not too distant future on all of the franchises' fronts by their editorial staffs. Would I again purchase books based on a "Wagon Train to the Stars" in 2012 and Beyond? You Betcha! Will I get it? Doubtfully. In the meantime. Buy this book. It won't disappoint. Also, please note: This book came out in October, 2011. Most of the previous negative reviews were posted prior to that date and should be disregarded. Happy Reading!!!

    Worthy Addition to Star Trek Lore

    The characters and mythology of Star Trek are well represented by this novel. While most stories in the Star Trek universe are good you usually know that most of the main characters will be alive at the end. I didn't get that feeling with this book. When I read this novel I felt like I was reading a new chapter in the history of the Star Trek universe and that anything could happen.

    Maybe this one will be about Star Trek rather than Martin's political views.

    I can only hope this one isn't another thinly veiled commentary on Afghanistan and Iraq. If Martin ever chose to actually write a Star Trek Novel, I think it could be good. Here's hoping... but not holding my breath.

    The introduction of todays politics and political agenda into a Star Trek novel is disgusting.  Exploring ideas is one thing, but using a novel to villify Bush while glorifying Obama is way out of line.   The ideas presented from a future point of view as if judgement was foregone.   This is not entertaining and ruins an already mediocre story.   I will avoid this author in the future.
