    1 thought on “Daedalus

    1. Daedalus is the first of a two-part series of books set in the Star Trek: Enterprise franchise and takes place towards the end of the second season just before the Xindi story arc begins. Initially, this book starts off with deconstructing the Suliban cell ship for a mission into a spatial anomaly but quickly spirals into more of an action-based plot involving military dictators and interfering with less advanced species. Daedalus is told entirely from the perspective of Trip and Hoshi after the [...]

    2. I was actually a little bit confused at first regarding this book as I had assumed prior to reading the blurb that this book would actually be based on the "Enterprise" TV episode of the same name. However, this is not the case and both stories are entirely different from each other which wasn't an issue to me as I actually prefer an original novels to a novelization of an episode.The story itself mainly follows the antics of Commander Tucker after an investigation into an anomaly leaves the Ent [...]

    3. Really bun first book in a 2 book series. Trip focused novel with lots of twists that draw you into the story.

    4. Finally, after a handful of novels which took place solely on Enterprise, Daedalus takes the action elsewhere, to a new alien civilization, a new set of characters and a new setting. This is a fast, exciting read centering almost exclusively on Trip. The rest of the crew get token appearances early on (Hoshi gets more to do, but she is a distant second to the engineer), but this is Tucker's moment to shine.The story is fresh, revolving around two warring cultures and our Starfleet heroes stuck i [...]

    5. Overall, an enjoyable book. The premise seemed fairly interesting, and Trip was depicted well (apart from one instance), along with the characters introduced, and the pacing seemed just right.There were some decisions that the author made that I felt lessened the originality, and impact that the story had.For one, what was suppose to be the big plot twist of the book, felt rather obvious and entirely overused on both the TV shows and subsequent novels. I would have liked a different approach tha [...]

    6. Enterprise finds a system that seems to have aliens like humans in it. Meanwhile, they are discovering how to use the Ion drive on the cell ship. The aliens are more of a threat than they thought and trouble ensues. This is a Trip story, so if you don't like the character then don't even bother reading this. It features a few flashbacks of Trip's life that are interesting. The story is very readable and quick paced. The twist is clever, and the book ends on a cliffhanger so that you buy part 2. [...]

    7. Wonderful book.This is a 2 parter that was never used on the t.v. show but I wish it had been. The books are mostly from the viewpoint of Tucker and Hoshie. If your a fan of Enterprise you should enjoy this book. Wish I had seen this storyline on the show because in my opinion the early demise of the show was because of the lack of original GOOD stories.

    8. I never did get into the last Star Trek TV series, but I've enjoyed the books that have come out of the series. I need to find the 2nd book "Daedalus's Children".

    9. Blah. Main plotline not terrible, sub plot of nutritional problems due to mirror universe was stupid and didn't follow canon.
