    One thought on “The Romulan War: To Brave the Storm”

    1. The Earth-Romulan War of a century ago (or a century hence, depending on your temporal POV) is one of the iconic “historical” events of the Star Trek universe. As Mr. Spock explains to the Enterprise crew in “The Balance of Terror,”* it was a war fought “with primitive atomic weapons, and in primitive space vessels, which allowed no quarter, no captives. Nor was there even ship-to-ship visual communication.”That latter fact is hedged quite a bit in this novel and its predecessor as t [...]

    2. To start i'm a little disappointed that the coordination and the will to construct a proper time line seems to be so poorly at Simon and Schuster that the great Romulan War that has accompanied us since 1967 and the early TOS stories is only "worth" two not too long volumes and especially this second installment feels quite rushed and forced with it's many temporal jumps. I'd think that the story that could have been told and the willingness of the Enterprise fans to buy such books would have ju [...]

    3. Yay! It is finally here *dives on in* ---finishes --- Ala Stephen there will be images Ok I'm not certain there is much I can write a review upon that will not give out major (massive?) spoilers. I can say that this is a novel that has A LOT packed onto it, it does feel like it should have been perhaps three separate volumes for all the ground/territory it covered. Which is not to say that it was not good cause it was. I think it could have gone into more depth and still been just as readable an [...]

    4. Waste of time.EDIT: Okay, so I finished this last night and was pretty annoyed. After sleeping on it and with my mind afresh, this afternoon I reflect on why this book left me in such a surly mood. Watching this video which talks, in part, about "bad" writing helped me articulate a big reason why this book left a bitter taste. She speaks about pseudo-artistic word usage and when I heard that I instantly thought of this book. Now let me preface this by saying that I don't think the author was try [...]

    5. I seemed to enjoy this novel more than most, but I still very much found it lacking due to the rushed nature of the narrative. I really wish that we had gotten our trilogy, and while I enjoy Michael A. Martin's writing, the story suffered horribly from the editorial decisions. I also really worry that this spells the end of the Enterprise novel line, which is unfortunate as there is still a rich history to cover and many gaps to fill. Perhaps a resurgence of some sort of "Lost Era" line would be [...]

    6. I struggled a lot with this one. Parts of it where fine, such as the Archer POV chapters. I confess I was skimming and later skipping non-Enterprise main crew chapters by the mid-way point. I just didn't care about them. I was really disappointed because I was engaged in some chaptersd others didn't appeal at all. It really killed the enjoyment of the book.

    7. Really loved this book. I mean, I'm a gigantic fan of Star Trek: Enterprise - it's tied for my favorite along with TOS. Certainly this book is better than any of the reboot movies or the godawful STD on CBS right now. But this book was absolutely ENT at its prime. Archer's strategies, the Romulans more fierce and interesting here than they have ever been on screen or in movies, *ever*, and the finale oof wow. Great book.

    8. Yeesh. All of my minor complaints about part 1 just blossomed into the entirety of part 2 :( I finally got to the point where I just gave up on this book. Which is frustrating because I really want to know how things turned out. Oh, well. Everyone seems to agree that the Rise of Federation stuff is much better than anything that came before, so I'll be curious to give it a shot.

    9. A book in the middle of the series of Star Trek Enterprise books. Plowing through this book, so we can get to the end of the Romulan War and back onto developing the 'Federation' as an organization. Had to read this to get to the next one.

    10. "To Brave The Storm" by Michael A. Martin is the concluding book in the Romulan War series which started with "Beneath The Raptor's Wing". After my enjoyment of the first book in the series I was really looking forward to reading this one. This was enhanced by my knowledge that there are no new Enterprise novels expected for the foreseeable future so this could be the last new story in that franchise that I read for quite a while.The novel chronicles the final years of the Earth-Romulan war with [...]

    11. To Brave the Storm is the final book in the Romulan War series of Star Trek Enterprise and showcases humanity's, and by extension the Coalition's, last attempt to thwart the Romulan advance. Whereas the previous books in the series strived to set up the ongoing war, this one pulls it all together and ties it up. Unlike the previous installments, To Brave the Storm is more action heavy and features several engagements with Romulan forces.To Brave the Storm is a bit different than the rest of the [...]

    12. I deliberated long and hard over the rating of this book. Four stars or five? "Pretty good" or "brilliant"?In short, To Brave the Storm strikes me as a slight oddity. While The Romulan War: Beneath the Raptor's Wing incorporated dozens of characters into it's detailed coverage of the "universal" effects of the War, it's successor essentially went back to basics and was more in the style of Kobayashi Maru. Instead of comprehensively covering each of the major plot points as the story progressed, [...]

    13. "To Brave the Storm" is the concluding novel for the Earth-Romulan War and could potentially be the final novel for Enterprise. The story concludes the tale begun in "Beneath the Raptor's Wing" as we go from the attack on Mt. Selaya on Vulcan in 2156 through the signing of the Federation charter in 2161. Normally it isn't wise by any means to advance a storyline across 5 years in any one book unless there is good reason. Martin, however, manages to do this in such a way as to not bore the reader [...]

    14. Not up to the standard of previous books in the series. The plot consisted of a lot of jumping around, and there wasn't much development for the characters. If you're familiar with the entire series and watched the show it's easy to fill in a lot of the blanks on the main cast, but some of the other characters could have done with more attention. Frankly, the entire thing could have been spread out between more than two books and given us a lot more action.My biggest complaint is with how the wh [...]

    15. Es ist vollbracht, mit diesem Buch ist eines der geheimnisvollsten Kapitel des Star Trek Kanons mit der Trilogie um den Romulanischen Krieg zu Ende erzählt.Der Roman spielt über einen Zeitraum von 30 Jahren, in der die Menschheit sich gegen das Romulanische Imperium stemmt, dabei kam den Menschen zu Hilfe, dass die Romulaner einen Zweifrontenkrieg führen mussen, erst zum Ende und nach dem Genozid an den Haakoniern und diversen internen Außeinandersetzungen kommt es zu Entscheidungsschlachten [...]

    16. The last book of the Romulan War series. The story wraps up with the formation of the Neutral Zone and the creation of the Federation of Planets both of which are very familiar to fans of the Star Trek universe. How that plays out and the role that Trip Tucker and Jonathan Archer play is what drives this fourth and final book. I've read better Star Trek fan fiction, but I thought the story was clever and interesting and it wrapped up fairly well, if not a bit rushed.In regards to Trip and T'Pol, [...]

    17. This is an interesting and well-written book; if there are some minor continuity problems both with the Enterprise TV series (particularly the carryover wish-fulfillment by the author ressurrecting a character who had died in the series) and with the original Star Trek TV series, that's a fairly minor quibble. Taken on its own merits, the book has good character development, a fast-moving, interesting plot, good pacing, and a generally good story. If I find the "Epilogue" to be a silly tack-on c [...]

    18. The final battles of the Earth -Romulan war. The creation of the Neutral Zone. The final fates of Charles Trip Tucker. All these and other plot elements come to their conclusion in this final volume.The series of books is worth reading if you are into Star Trek lore, and if you loved the TV series. This is direction the series should have gone. If it had the series would not have been canceled so abruptly.I suggest that you get all 4 volumes at the same and read them straight through. Each work [...]

    19. It was a good read, but I still have my reservations about in the 22nd Century having direct energy weapons (on both sides) and antimatter weapons (the photonic torpodoes on the NX-class vessels.) I was hoping for an explanation or rational for Starfleet only using nuclear weapons, but I guess the other vessels had nuclear weapons and Spock only mentioned that it was MOSTLY found with primitive subatomic weapons. That being said, as a TOS and ENT fan, it is a must to read the series connecting E [...]

    20. It's a shame that the Enterprise relaunch novels have been so screwed over by editorial. The chronicles of the Romulan War deserve a much longer series than this. It really hurts also that Martin lost his long-time collaborator, Andy Mangels, as the final entries to the relaunch are a lot weaker than the fare they delivered before.This book is really hurt by having to compress years of war stories into short glimpses of important events. Months will sometimes pass between entries, and it's frust [...]

    21. Although the galaxy, especially the territory held by the newly formed United Federation of Planets( formerly the Coalition Of Planets), is now safe from the threat of the Romulan Star Empire thanks to the establishment of the Neutral Zone by the actions of Humans, Vulcans, Andorians, Tellerites, and Vissans, everyone still needs to be vigilant of any who threaten peace and peaceful exploration. For aggression never takes a rest.

    22. At about half the length of the previous title in this series, this one definitely benefitted from having a more tightly focused story as opposed to Beneath the Raptor's Wing which seemed to go off on several unnecessary tangents that never really paid off. I was glad to see that this one actually resolves all of its story threads rather than trying to set up the next book like so many sci-fi series do.

    23. The Romulan War draws to a conclusion. Don't read this if you have not read all post series Enterprise novels. As you would expect there are a lot of space battles and descriptions of tactics. There is some character bits, especially with T'pol and Trip. The Vulcan parts are very well done and add more to the culture of Vulcan. A lot happens in this book, and I don't want to spoil it for anyone. I was really happy with the ending though, really happy. A good read.

    24. To Brave the Storm was a fitting end to the Romulan War and it ended with a little insight into what is going to happen to the rest of the Enterprise crew it also ended with the founding of the United Federation of Planets which leads into the next part of the series the Founding of the Federation which I look forward to reading. These two books and the books following would be great to be adapted for TV if and when Paramount decides to finally continue Enterprise.

    25. The first Romulan war book was so tedious in its timeline. Now we have the second book and the years are ticking off every other page. I don't get it. This is one is rushed. What program did Trip develop? What was this never explained. The battle of Cheron is very short and then the romulans just quit. Very poor conclusion. Barely three stars.

    26. Seriously such a great ending to the Trip/T'pol love story. Not to mention that Dax, Picard and a few other early family names show up in the series.For anyone who wants to see the true end of a great series and the beginning of the Federation as well as why the coalition of the planets failed this is a great series!I LOVED it!

    27. This book wraps up the 4 book series of the Romulan war. The previous book suffered a bit from too many plot lines and characters to follow. Not so with this book. Although these last two books have been more of a glorified timeline as often several months would pass between the chapters. This last book mainly took place from 2156 to 2161. But the action and story is incredible.

    28. This was a good book that I give four stars too because I like the characters so much and the resolution to their story is very touching. It does start off slow and would have benefited by being a longer book that could have give more detail to the first section of the book. Overall I am very pleased.

    29. The Romulan war books are plain awful. I quit the second book at chapter 17. This guy has to be one of the worst trek writers I have come across. The story is all contrived and the plot moves the characters instead of the characters moving the story along. I hope they dump this author because I won't read any of his books
