For two seasons,
Star Trek: Deep Space Nine chronicled the intense struggle of the Federation, fighting alongside the Klingons and the Romulans against the overwhelming forces of the Dominion. Now, for the first time, see how the Dominion War affected the entirety of the Star Trek universe. From the heart of the Federation to the bridge of the Starship Enterprise. From the edge of the New Frontier to the corridors of station Deep Space Nine...

Tales of the Dominion War is a collection of short stories written by some of the finest Star Trek novelists who unravel new tales from this seminal period in galactic history. Heroes from three generations - Sisko, Picard, Spock, Kira, Calhoun, Klag, McCoy, Gold, and many more - all have their tales to tell of the Dominion War.

I was a little sceptical about whether this collection would work. While the Dominon War originally featured in the final two seasons of DS9, I couldn't really see how the writers were going to open up these events to encompass the entire Trek universe, without appearing too forced.

What we end up with is a great collection of short stories which are so easy to dip in and out of. And The Dominion War Timeline at the end of this collection is also a nice touch.

What could so easily have been an American flag waving exercise transferred to the Trek universe ends up providing a surprisingly thought provoking and insightful new slant on the history of the United Federation of Planets.
