High above Earth an alien probe appears and releases a deadly
blast that leaves a smouldering crater in its wake. Millions
die in Florida, Cuba and Venezuela. Aboard the Starship Enterprise,
Captain Archer and his crew get the call to come home. But
before he can make it home, Archer is kidnapped by the Suliban's.
Here he learns that a second attack is planned for Earth,
one that will destroy the planet. To stop the threat Archer
must go into a region of deadly space known as The Expanse...
declares on the front cover that it is based on the TV episodes
The Expanse and The Xindi. And I can guess what
your thinking... "How can it be linked other than in
the most tenuous of ways?" Well, you'd be right and to
be honest they really shouldn't have bothered linking this
book to two totally unrelated episodes.
anyone explain to me the point of basing novels on TV episodes?
Why not give the writer a little more creative talent to run
wild with the genre for a while? But sadly J.M. Dillard isn't
afforded such luxury. While she unravels an engaging enough
novel, it would have faired much better if it had been allowed
to stand as a story in its own right.
this is by far the weakest of the Enterprise novels
