Rise of the Federation is a series of Star Trek: Enterprise novels published by Pocket Books, starting in 2013. Created by Christopher L. Bennett, the series resumes the Enterprise era narrative established in previous novels, focusing on the formation of the United Federation of Planets after the events of the Earth-Romulan War and its struggle to survive, keep up peace and try to define itself while looking into the future.
The novels focus on both the former crew of the Enterprise (NX-01) that was decomissioned following the end of the Earth-Romulan War, and their new colleagues and friends who they meet with their new assignments. The main settings are the USS Endeavour under the command of Captain T'Pol, and the USS Pioneer under the command of Captain Malcolm Reed, but we also follow Admiral Jonathan Archer trough his struggles to guide Starfleet and the Federation toward a unified, peaceful tomorrow despite the outside forces looking to destroy the fledgling alliance.
The antagonists include the Orion Syndicate under the leadership of the Three sisters, and other criminal elements who fear the lawful order and security imposed on the region by the Federation; the mysterious automated technology called the Ware and all who would exploit it; the Saurian tyrant named Maltuvis hell-bent on galactic conquer; and the shadowy organization Section 31 who would stop at nothing to protect the Federation even if it means destroying everything it stands for.
