When a contingent of MACO's is assigned to the Enterprise to support Captain Jonathan Archer's Starfleet crew both groups share a common goal: stopping the Xindi, but they differ in their ideas of how to accomplish that goal.

In the new Enterprise novel Last Full Measure the writing duo of Michael A. Martin and Andy Mangels have crafted a first-rate story that goes a long way toward reconciling how the two groups learned to work together and trust each other while at the same time fleshing out the characters and bridging some of the gap between Enterprise and the Original series. Then there is the little matter of a very shocking revelation within the framing story.

The bulk of the action in Last Full Measure takes place right after the third season episode "The Xindi" so it's not surprising that the Military Assault Command Operations personnel have a fairly low opinion of Archer and his Starfleet crew. When Archer decides to lead a landing party to Kaletoo to follow another tenuous lead on the Xindi, Major Hayes has justifiable doubts about Archer's leadership skills but dutifully assembles a small squad to accompany the away team.

Meanwhile T'Pol, who has been left in command on Enterprise, sends Mayweather and another squad of MACO's lead by Mayweather's nemesis Corporal Chang to investigate what appears to be the trail of a Xindi vessel. The trail leads the shuttlepod to a Xindi fuel facility and a showdown between Mayweather and Chang over the decision about what to do about their discovery.

As the main narrative unfolds in Last Full Measure the tension between the MACO's and Archer's Starfleet crew is palpable.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
The third season of Star Trek: Enterprise was a season-long epic about the quest to destroy the superweapon aimed at Earth by the alien Xindi. Some liked it, some didn't, but there was no question that this was different for the television Treks, a story where each episode told a specific part of the story, rather than being self-contained. The latest Enterprise novel, Last Full Measure (by Michael A. Martin and Andy Mangels) takes place near the beginning of the season, and it's well-written (as is typical from these two). While I didn't enjoy it as much as I have some of their other work, it is definitely a novel worth reading.

On their quest for the Xindi, the Enterprise has been assigned a platoon of MACOs (Military Assault Command Operations), soldiers that will be expected to be the ground troops for any planetary missions the expedition requires. Being spit-and-polish military, rather than rather laid back Starfleet types, tensions between the two crews begin to rise, especially amongst those Starfleet officers who have to make room for these MACOs. Especially affected is Ensign Mayweather, the helmsman of the Enterprise. His MACO roommate is really getting on his nerves, and it's made even worse when T'Pol assigns him to pilot a shuttle full of MACOs which includes his roommate. Meanwhile, Captain Archer and Lieutenant Reed are having some growing pains of their own with the MACO commander, Major Hayes, on a clandestine mission that could turn out to be a Xindi trap. Both teams will have to use all of their ingenuity to get out of their predicaments, and they'll have to get past their prejudices as well.

Seven million dead. That was the death toll when the Xindi attacked earth with their first attack. Now, they are constructing a weapon that would destroy the entire planet. Captain Jonathan Archer and his crew must work with MACOs, with whom they often have an adverserial relationship, to save the planet earth.

Through the story, they are seeking clues in a part of space humanity knows little about populated by species they know even less of. However, failure is not an option as failure means the end of Earth.

Through the story, Starfleet and MACO learn to work together. They learn, grudgingly at times, to have respect for one another. They realize that they are truly on the same side.

The authors keep the story moving with vivid detail. You can picture the main players and events as they unfold in four different places, including the Xindi Homeworld, which Arthur and his crew is trying to find.

Unfortunately, this book does not have the complete story of the quest as the ultimate fate is included in the TV series. If you have access to it, you need it to see what happens in the end. Other than that minor point, I think this would be an enjoyable book for Trekkers everywhere.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
In the wake of the Xindi attack on the planet earth, Captain Jonathan Archer and the crew of the Enterprise have been assigned the challenging task of neutralizing a Xindi super weapon that is being prepared for the annihilation of the human race. Along for the ride is a troop of space-marines, the MACO's. The MACOs view the crew of the Enterprise as soft and undisciplined, while the crew looks upon the MACOs with discomfort and concern. The cauldron is set boiling as separate missions expose Captain Archer, Major Hayes, Lieutenant Reed, Corporal Chang, and Ensign Mayweather to the best and worst of one another, and themselves.

In a quest to discover the location of hidden Xindi weapon construction bases, Captain Archer, Major Hayes, and Lieutenant Reed embark on a shuttlepod journey to the planet Kaletoo to track down a Xindi supplier.

Later, Ensign Mayweather is assigned to track down an odd emission reading at the edge of the Kaletoo system - and to take a squad of MACOs with him.

In the interweaving tales both sides of the 'sharks and squids' competition (mirroring the inter-service rivalry of modern day naval/marine contingents) learn valuable lessons about one another and grow in their (grudging) appreciation of the gifts and talents that both bring to the table in the fight to save the human race.

Last Full Measure is a very, very satisfying read. The writing duo of Michael A. Martin and Andy Mangels manage to do an outstanding job of laying out several supporting crewmembers who one grows to care for by the end of the story, interweaves the work with a large amount of Star Trek backstory (particularly in the Prologue and Epilogue), and offers up a satisfying moral and interpersonal relations tale.
