Beneath the Raptor's Wing is a Star Trek: Enterprise novel published by Pocket Books in 2009. It is the first book in two-part The Romulan War miniseries, and a direct continuation of the narrative from Kobayashi Maru and other books in the Pocket's Enterprise novel series. It chronicles the beginning of the Earth-Romulan War.

Publisher's descriptionEdit

From the back cover
At the start of the twenty-first century unconditional war swept across the Earth. A war that engulfed the great and the small, the rich and the poor, giving no quarter. Each side strove for unconditional victory, and as battle built upon battle the living began to envy the dead.
Chastised by the cataclysm that they had unleashed, the governments of Earth banded together. Humanity vowed to put an end to war, and to strive for the betterment of every living creature. A united Earth created Starfleet, an interstellar agency, whose mission was to explore the cosmos, to come in peace for all mankind. A naïve wish, yet man persists in the belief that peace is the way. Banding together with other powers to form a Coalition of Planets, humanity hopes that the strength each can offer the other, will allow for peaceful exploration.
The rise of the Coalition strikes dread within the Romulan Star Empire. They feel the growing reach will cut them off from what is rightfully theirs. But, the Romulans know that the alliance is fragile, that the correct strategy could turn allies into foes. Perfecting a way of remotely controlling Coalition ships and using them as weapons against each other, the Romulans hope to driving a wedge of suspicion and mistrust between these new allies.
One ship, one Starfleet captain uncovers this insidious plot, Jonathan Archer of the Enterprise. Determined not to lose what they have gained, out manned and out gunned, the captains of Starfleet stand tall vowing to defend every inch of Coalition space. The tide begins to turn. The Romulans now plan to strike at what they see as the heart of their problem. With nothing left to lose the Romulan Star Empire engages in all out war against humanity, determined once and for all to stop the human menace from spreading across the galaxy.

SummaryEdit

July 2156: Jonathan Archer is making a request to the Klingon Empire to enter the war on Starfleet's side, a war which Starfleet is losing. The Klingon chancellor, M'Rek, says he and the council will consider their request.

July 2155: The Enterprise has to warp home from the Gamma Hydra sector, a voyage which takes some time. Travis Mayweather decides he must leave the ship because of what happened at Gamma Hydra, as he could not accept Captain Archer's decision to abandon the freighter ECS Kobayashi Maru. Hoshi Sato also considers leaving, but Archer convinces her to stay, at least for the time being.

As war breaks out, Administrator T'Pau announces that the Vulcans will not assist Starfleet in the fight, which angers them. They compromise, however, with a detection grid that will give any fleet a few minutes extra warning, at most. Despite this advantage, the Romulans launch sneak attacks on Tarod IX, Deneva, Berengaria VII, Achernar II and Threllvia IV, reducing most of each planet to ruins.

Gannet Brooks, a reporter for Newstime, and Travis Mayweather's old flame, sends reports from the front lines, slamming Starfleet for their apparent no-shows at attacked planets. Admiral Gregory Black asks her editor to make her tone down her stories.

Trip Tucker is rescued from his escape pod near Tezel-Oroko by a Vulcan freighter, the Kiri-kin-tha, commanded by Captain T'Vran. Also on board is a V'Shar agent, Ych'a, who requests Trip's help in finding out more about T'Pau's government. He takes on the role of a Vulcan merchant called Sodok, who deals in kevas and trillium - items Trip has never heard of.

T'Pol is recalled to Vulcan, but she decides to formally resign her commission with the Vulcans and stay aboard Enterprise. Archer has other plans: with T'Pol on Vulcan, she can try to determine why the Vulcans have pulled out of the war. When meeting with T'Pau, the administrator reveals that she has Surak's katra within her, and as his primary focus was peace and not violence, the Vulcans shall follow his path.

On Romulus, Admiral Valdore and most of the Romulan senate are unimpressed by Praetor D'deridex's plans to invade Haakona, an old enemy. The Romulans lose half the fleet they send there and the mission fails. Unwilling to take the blame for the military's losses due to the ever-deteriorating condition of the Romulan leader, Valdore uses his contacts to arrange for D'deridex's skimmer to have an "accident", which succeeds, killing D'deridex. Senator Karzan is installed as the new leader.

A combined Starfleet-Andorian fleet halts a Romulan attempt to invade the Procyon system, the location of Andoria. The Andorians' fleet is led by Shran, on the IGS Weytahn, whilst Travis Mayweather pilots the Daedalus-class USS Yorktown. During this battle, Captain Roy Dunsel becomes the first to use Starfleet's experimental self-destruct system, destroying his ship, the Challenger (NX-03).

Ambassadors Thoris of Andoria and Gora bim Gral of Tellar decide that they too must withdraw their fleets from the war.

In April 2156, Enterprise leads an assault to retake Starbase 1 and Berengaria VII from the Romulans. Archer has become a Commodore. Starfleet takes bad losses but the Romulans are driven off. The rest of the fleet joins up with Shran's ship and sets course for Deneva.

Back on Vulcan, an explosion destroys the living katra of Surak, causing T'Pau to cry openly and state that the planet may be permanently closed to "offworlders." On Enterprise, Archer feels the loss of the katra.

AppendicesEdit

BackgroundEdit

  • In the early stages of conception for this book the editor, Margaret Clark, considered presenting the story of the Romulan War as either a trilogy of mass-market-paperbacks or one large trade-paperback book [1]. In July 2008 it was announced the format had settled on the large trade-paperback[2]. Additional information on the project released in December 2008 revealed that despite the choice to go with a single larger format this book would start, but not complete, the story of the entire conflict[3].
  • Clark told the writer to think of the Romulans like North Korea, drawing on the tradition in Star Trek to parallel real world events: "Gene's stories were always tales about today. In Gene's day, they were China. But now, you have North Korea. It's a totally closed society, which explains why we don't know what Romulans look like. The Romulan Praetor… he's like Precious Leader."[4]
  • This novel references SkiKahr once, and most likely was meant to be Shikahr. (Page 239)
