About the Book

This Reference continues expanding much of the original material detailed in the first three volumes. New adventures are detailed and old adversaries are visited.  Biographies offer new material discovered in the novels, and a Vulcan course of study is included.  How the Romulans  split from the Vulcans is detailed here as well as new information about Andorians, Tellarites, and Vulcans.  Here you can visit with new crewmembers, meet a Coridani, swim with a waffa, learn about the Denebians, shudder at the inhumane actions of Ravens,  contemplate Matter as God and the Romulan concept of mhnei’sahe, while joining in the fun concocted by the natives of Direidians as a prank played upon Romulans, Klingons, and Kirk’s crew. Learn more about Romulan’s twin worlds, ch’Havran and ch’Rihan, how the Enterprise was nearly destroyed by a minute black hole, and Kirk’s second out-of-body experience.  Immerse yourself in a galaxy where Terrans continue to expand their knowledge, meet fascinating new peoples, and “go where no one has gone before.”

About the Author

Since the original airing of “Devil in the Dark,” Alva Underwood has been a fan of the STAR TREK world, buying, reading, and writing about its peoples, places, and events.  This native Missourian has also written three other References to Star Trek novels, a history of her local library, and a history to celebrate the 125th anniversary of her church.  This Reference continues her study of Roddenberry’s fascinating world in her attempt to bring together reliable information for those who find Enterprise’s adventures interesting.  Here the reader will find additional biographical entries about the main characters, meet new aliens, and discover a continuing sense of just how wide and deep the history of the 21st  and 22nd centuries is according to the imagination of the novelists.  The author hopes any reader of this and the other References will find as much enjoyment here as she did while researching the material.
