Elegy for Charlie: I was tricked into reading bad poetry....

The Magicks of Megas-tu: This one is hurt by the runtime. I feel like it could have been a fun TOS episode, but it ends up feeling rushed and half-baked as-is.

The Lorelei Signal: It's mostly pretty standard stuff, but Uhura taking command and being generally awesome earns an extra star.

Spectre of the Gun: I'm mostly in the minority on this one judging from the many best/worst TOS lists and discussions I've seen over the years, but I absolutely adore this episode. IMO it's the only example of S3's infamous budget issues actually working in the episodes favor.

If this script had been shot in the first or second season they would probably have filmed it on an actual western town set, and the result would likely have been another unremarkable fairly generic pseudo-historical episode. But instead we get half-built western trappings on the standard planet sound stage. And the result is kinda eerie. The whole thing feels delightfully surreal and subtly off-putting.

Present Tense: First, I really like it when a book picks right up from the end of an episode, and extends the events. It works in those post-Enterprise novels, and it works here, with one exception.

Most of the books is a really good story, would have made a great episode of the show in fact. Until the last few minutes. I get they are trying to extend it into a three book series, but I'm not crazy about the direction they chose to go.

Cold Front: This sets up a much more interesting sounding arc than they ever actually execute.

The Good That Men Do: Trip was always my favorite character on Enterprise and I really enjoyed seeing the authors take the shocking series finale and make it their own. I hope more books are written in this series continuing the lives of the Enterprise crew. Good job Andy and Michael.

The Good That Men Do: This is a pretty good read. It fixes all of the problems with "these are the voyages" while still matching the issue 100%. The only downside to this book is the framing story, which really wasn't needed. As it is, its presented as Jake learning about events from historical records, but includes things literally know one could know in detail. Had this been presented as a straight story, it would have been 5 stars.

Civilization: That was ok but nothing too special, it could almost have been in any other Star Trek series. That said, the best bit was probably when Archer's translation broke down, which isn't really something you see elsewhere.

Civilization: So the Enterprise can detect 5 million life forms from 4 light years a at, but they can't tell there's a spaceship on the other side of the planet?
