This is an exceptional book! However, I am slightly biased because I love the tv show. Scott Bakula is my favorite actor and did a great job as Archer. Anyway, if you haven't gotten the DVD, get this first then everything will make sense. It has to be my favorite episode that was done into a book.
Enterprise was probably my favorite of the trek series - probably because it was the newest - i also liked the idea of going back and creating a beginning for what we already knew. Even though it blew up many facts we had already come to learn in previous series, i have come to peace with the newer vesion of the past. I read this book after seeing the episode and it followed the episode pretty well. It was a good story and was impressed with how the author was able to describe some pretty complex concepts as captured in the episode.
