Within every federation and every empire, behind every hero
and every villain, there are the worlds that define them.
In the aftermath of Unity
and in the daring tradition of Spock's World, The
Final Reflection, and A Stitch in Time, the civilisations
most closely tied to Star Trek: Deep Space Nine can
now be experienced as never before... in tales both sweeping
and intimate, reflective and prophetic, eerily familiar and
Three of Worlds of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine consists
of two stories based on Ferenginar and The Dominion.
Quark's profit-driven homeworld is rocked with scandal as
shocking allegations involving his brother's first wife, the
mother of Nog, threaten to overthrow Rom as Grand Nagus of
the Ferengi Alliance. Making matters worse, Quark has been
recruited by Rom's political adversaries to join their coup
d'état, with guarantees of all Quark ever dreamed if they
succeed in taking his brother down. While Ferenginar's future
teeters on the edge, the pregnancy of Rom's current wife,
Leeta, takes a difficult turn for both mother and child.
Dominion: Since its defeat in the war for the Alpha Quadrant,
the Great Link - the living totality of the shape-shifting
Founders - has struggled with questions. At its moment of
greatest doubt, its fate, and that of the Dominion itself,
is tied to Odo's investigation of his kind's true motives
for sending a hundred infant changelings out into the galaxy.
As Odo searches for answers and takes a hard look at his past
choices, Taran'atar reaches a turning point in his own quest
for clarity... one from which there may be no going back.
third book in this series, for me personally, is the best
so far. The two stories centre on two of my favourite DS9
characters (Quark and Odo).
has the edge though. In this tale all your favourite characters
are present and correct - Rom, Nog, Zek, Ishka, Maihar'du,
Leeta and Brunt. Writer Keith R.A. DeCandido has the subtle
characteristics of all the main players spot on. And of all
the tales told so far in this series, this is the one that
would have made the best TV episode.
Dominion is also a good read. However, I don't know (especially
after such short a time) whether getting Odo and Kira back
together again was such a good idea. The TV series said everything
that need to be said, and dragging Odo out of The Great Link
and stumbling into Kira was not a great idea. Surely Odo could
have undertaken his investigation without needing to meet
up with her.
stories are enjoyable and will not disappoint DS9 fans.
