Oddly enough, Star Trek Deep Space Nine #8 "Antimatter" is John Vornholt's only Deep Space Nine novel over the years. From his very first Star Trek novel, STNG #7 "Masks," one learns that his stories are ones that you don't wish to miss. John Vornholt does a wonderful job of setting up the scenery for most every scene in his novels, without detracting from the story at all. His writing style has always been very engaging, with good pacing that doesn't bog down in the details. The plot development for "Antimatter" is intriguing and the author's timing is perfect!
The cover art for "Antimatter" is standard fare for the time in which this novel was released.
The premise:
In a plan to revitalize Bajor's ravished economy, Starfleet commissions one of their shipyards to build a new engine. A tanker full of the valuable cargo of antimatter for this new starship is headed for Bajor but is instead hijacked and taken through the wormhole. The hijacking sparks a hot political debate which Major Kira is left to deal with while Commander Sisko, Dax and Odo infiltrate the hijackers in hopes of recovering the antimatter and soon discover that there is a much more deadly plan than just the hijacking of the antimatter and the stakes become immeasurably higher...
What follows from there, as stated above, is one of the better earlier Deep Space Nine novels that is very fast paced and engaging to read. I highly recommend this John Vornholt novel and any of his other titles as he is truly one of Star Trek's better authors. {ssintrepid}

I'm reading all of the DS9 novels in sequence, and so far this is the worst one so far. While the plot is fine, all of the characters sound exactly alike, with no individual personality or speaking patterns of their own. It's like dialogue from an amateur writing class.

Also, the author shows a distinct unfamiliarity with the show. Two examples from the first few chapters: Odo is mentioned as having "veins in his neck" (which he doesn't), and Commander Sisko says that Chief O'Brien will be in change when Sisko and Dax leave the station (ignoring the face that Kira is second-in-command).

It's so distracting that I doubt I'll be able to finish reading it.

Not perfect; there are a couple of ways in which the characters seem a bit out of character (Sisko has a mild phobia of insects, which I don't believe we've ever seen elsewhere, and Dax demonstrates a level of discomfort with her femininity (having until recently beeen Curzon Dax, a male) that we certainly haven't seen elsewhere; a couple of attempts at character development that were good tries, but ring false.) But other than that, the characters are well-handled, and the plot is a good one. The writing itself is good, so this book is definitely recommended.

Antimatter was one of the better Deep Space Nine books I've read, and I really like Deep Space Nine books. The only better ones I've read are "Time's Enemy", "The Tempest"(Star Trek book, not Shakesperian play), and "Warped". Although the plot idea was a bit silly, with the little bugs and all, but it was sound in construction, and the Bajoran terrorists are a lot more believable than those in most Deep Space Nine books and shows. The sub plot was junk, but I don't judge these based on their sub plots. It was interesting, and that's what counts.

I liked "Antimatter" because I thought it was a good adventure and funny, too. It also gave fans a chance to learn more about the three DS9ers who shared the adventure, Sisko, Dax and Odo.
