To Brave The Storm is a Star Trek: Enterprise novel published by Pocket Books in 2011. It is the second book in a multi-part story about The Romulan War miniseries, and a direct and concluding continuation of the narrative from Beneath the Raptor's Wing and other books in the Pocket's Enterprise novel series. It chronicles five years of Earth-Romulan War and the founding of the Federation.

Publisher's descriptionEdit

EARTH STANDS ALONE The Coalition of Planets has shattered, with Vulcan, Andor, and Tellar abrogating the treaty. Their pledge to come to the mutual defense of any power that is attacked has been shunted aside. Horrified by how easily the Romulans can seize control of their advanced starships, turning them into weapons, Andor and Tellar have joined Vulcan on the sidelines. Humanity is now the only thing that stands between the Romulan Star Empire and total domination of the galaxy.

To drive humans from the stars, the Romulans employ ruthless and murderous tactics . . . and even dare to strike on the Vulcan homeworld with the hopes of demoralizing their Vulcan brethren. Heartened by their victories, the Romulans carry their all-out war assault closer to the heart of humanity-Earth.

But the tattered remains of Starfleet stand unwavering, with the resolution that never again would any enemy strike ever reach Earth. On the front lines of the Earth- Romulan War is the United Earth flagship, the Starship Enterprise. Her captain, Jonathan Archer, has seen his vessel of exploration become a battleship. Once hailed for his work bringing the Coalition of Planets into existence, Archer is now a pariah. Undaunted, the captain keeps fighting, searching for allies and determined to do his duty: to save Earth and forge a new federation of planets.[1]


With the rest of the Coalition having withdrawn from the war with the Romulans, Prime Minister Samuels chooses to conduct a purely defensive war. With Enterprise patrolling near Earth space, Archer begins to build a relationship with other races to try and get help and information.

On Vulcan, it is eventually discovered Romulan infiltrators were responsible for the Mount Seleya explosion. When Terix goes missing, Tucker goes after him, he finds he has regained his original memories and Tucker is captured by the Romulans. He is kept alive to help find the Ejhoi Ormiin's warp seven ships and, with Nijil having been executed for his involvement, the task of getting them operational is given to him.

The Romulans win their war with the Haakonans by deploying the Loque'eque virus and commit their full forces to the humans. Enterprise helps foil an attempt to bomb the Martian colony with explosives hidden in meteors and Lieutenant Mayweather, who uncovered the plot, rejoins the crew.

Tucker sends Enterprise a message saying the Romulans are gathering their forces at Cheron and Archer convinces Gardner to let him take a force there. The human fleet is outnumbered, despite the assistance of a group of privateers led by Shran and Kolos and Tucker providing the prefix codes. Tucker's minder T'Luadh, who he believes to be a Vulcan agent, gets him to an escape pod but it is later destroyed. The arrival of a group of Vulcan, Andorian and Tellarite ships sent by T'Pau sees the Romulans forced to retreat.

The Romulans sue for peace and, with Enterprise decomissioned, Archer is a signatory on the treaty and the Federation Charter. Valdore is assassinated by First Consul T'Leikha who is herself killed by Terix. T'Pau turns down a seat on the Federation and resigns as administrator, unhappy at being forced to order violence. Twenty-five years later, a journalist attempting to track T'Pol down for an interview catches a glimpse of the officially dead Tucker with her and their two children, posing as the family gardener.
