"Multiple Viewpoints?"-Oh boy... This sounds familiar. :eyesroll:

You got it. I just hope this time they're viewpoints we're more interested in hearing from...

...Basically, (former or active) Enterprise crewmember viewpoints! :D

Word. Up. :D

:cool:

NO! MORE! GANNETT!

We need ENTERPRISE viewpoints! Enterprise, you know... the group of people we've been following all these years... :laugh:

I want to see Enterprise Characters getting the important  storyline pov in the new book. No More  Gannett Brooks get rid of her ,I dislike that character.

That sodding chapter in the last book where she meets the Native American Indians on Mars drove me utterly wacko cos it was so boring. I'm sure I was the only one who was going "GET ON WITH IT MAN!" :laugh:

I liked RW, don't get me wrong, but whenever Archer and the crew were not the focus, I couldn't wait for MM to get back to them. Also, I don't know if it was just me, but I thought Mayweather's actions were out of character (though he was a boomer, he was incredibly loyal to Archer and I don't think he would have reacted to Archer's handling of the KM like he did).

We could've used more detail from the daily life on the NX-01--like when they visited the female-dominated society! What did their planet and buildings look like? How did the actual conversation go? We're still exploring new cultures here, aren't we?

Besides the ENT viewpoints, the only other views I enjoyed was the Romulans, the Vulcans, the Admirals, the Andorians and Tellerites and the female Dalai llama. :cool:

Yeh, but the series went all those places from time to time, too. Brooks was a major diversion. I kept thinking there would be a big dichotomy between the public's view of the War and the War--that it was going somewhere--but the revelations didn't seem big enough to justify the sidetracks.

I liked hearing from Tucker's family--and actually, I thought scenes like that did a much better job of showing what the War was doing to Earth and humans than Brooks' reporting of it.

Amen to that! :laugh:

I'm still trying to figure out T'Pau's grand master plan for Vulcan to survive in the war, especially with Surak's Katra gone.

And T'Pol's "friends"? Are they no better than Sopek as double-agents? I don't trust them...

I suppose the only good think about that was that it was a nod to the Native American colonists in the S7 episode of Next Gen.

How long was that chapter? 25 pages? Made for dull reading, but showed the effects of the war on the Average Joe who was away from the action.

Ok, if ONLY 25 pages are devoted to the Average Joe, then I want the other 575 talking about our ENT crew and NX-01.  Gotta get Trip back, the crew needs the dynamic he brings to the fold.

I got that, but it didn't need 25 pages to do it. I keep thinking, though, that he was setting up characters he's going to come back to later...
