Star Trek ENT: Patterns of Interference

{4.5/5} “Do we presume we have the right — and the wisdom — to intervene in the lives of other beings we may not fully understand? Or do we default to granting them the same primacy over the lives that we insist upon for our own?”

Star Trek: Enterprise — Rise of the Federation: Patterns of Interference by Christopher L. Bennett, published in 2017

Trip can no longer in good conscience work for Section 31. In fact, he wants to bring them down — and Captains T’Pol and Reed are willing to help. Meanwhile, on Sauria the dictator Maltuvis has taken over the entire planet — with help from the Orions. Meanwhile, Admiral Archer tries to get the Federation to pass a non-interference directive.

It’s about plants that move, resistance against tyranny, and the question of interference in other civilizations.

It’s a terrific entry in the series.

I’ve read 10 novels and 3 stories by Bennett. The previous entry in the story of the 22nd century is Bennett’s Rise of the Federation: Live by the Code.

This is the latest Star Trek: Enterprise novel. I’ve now read all of them that take place after the TV series.
