Reviewer : Alex Rating : 1
Review : I liked this book, since it did deal with the Romulan War and the founding of the Federation. Personally, though, i found it to be too campy at times. We see Sarek being born, and talking about how maybe he will go into Starfleet, or perhaps it will be his son. The tension between the two factions that made up the captains, the military and the scientists is actually very good. To be honest, i was less than enthused with the ending. Everyone goes off about the new ship together. To schmaltzy for me. All in all, though, it is a good read.

Review : This is a great book in that it attempts to deal with an area of Star Trek lore that hasn't really been explored before, the formation of the Federation and Starfleet, as well as some of the Earth/Romulan War itself. Despite that it has been rendered largely moot by the new series, Enterprise, it is still a fascinating read, as this book suggests that the infamous Dadeulus class starship wasn't produced until some time after Starfleet was formed. Another new idea was that there was some debate about the nature of Starfleet, military or scientific, which isn't too surprising, when one considers that at least one of the founding members had just been through a war, and that some of the others were involved in conflicts also during the years leading up to the founding of the Federation, although that wasn't covered in the book. When all is said and done, I suggest that you read the book and decide which take you prefer the most, the Enterprise television series or the books on the founding of the FEderation.
