Star Trek: Enterprise — Tower of Babel

{4.5/5} “The Federation’s strength comes from its unity — its ability to set aside its members’ differences in pursuit of their mutual interests. Our respective syndicates will be better able to stand against them if we learn from their example.”

Star Trek: Enterprise — Rise of the Federation: Tower of Babel by Christopher L. Bennett, published in 2014

Captain Malcolm Reed on the Pioneer answers a distress call from Lorillians. Klingons have left their ship badly damaged but they manage to rescue some crewmembers. Meanwhile, Captain T’Pol on the Endeavor arrives at a Tellarite system where some humans have set up a mining colony. The Tellarites want them gone but the humans refuse.

The Orion sisters D’Nesh, Navaar, and Maras are featured.

It’s a great story about the advantages and disadvantages of joining a federation.

I’ve read 7 novels and 3 stories by Bennett. The previous entry in the story of the 22nd century is Bennett’s Rise of the Federation: A Choice of Futures.
