Despite the above praise, I'd rate this book between 4 and 4.5 stars due to what I'd call editing issues. Reading through some the reviews for this series, it seems Bennett likes to have multiple sub-plots that can continue on in subsequent stories, which is also true here. I didn't mind that much, because the author handled it quite well. My issue is with the quality of Phlox's sub-plot in that I didn't find it very interesting, except for the details about Denobulan life/culture. A subjective statement of course, but one thing I think many can agree is that it hurts the pacing of the overall storyline and could've easily been cut down. This wasn't the only sub-plot that I thought needed some trimming, and the Ware plot-line was fairly anticlimactic, but this may be a good example of 'less is more.'
Let's be honest here folks, if you're not a Trekker, specifically regarding Enterpise, it's highly unlikely you're going to just randomly pick this book up. However, while I'd recommend starting from the beginning of the series, if you liked the show(s) and want to revisit the characters mostly still intact there should be no problem getting into this storyline at book four like I did. Keep them coming Christopher Bennett!
