It was Time's Enemy that made me read this book. Though A.S. is full of the same unique detailed 'realism' style that you can only find in a Graf novel, it is nowhere near the same standard as Time's Enemy - which is what I see as Graf on peak form. Technical detail, realistic suspense, no over-the-top melodrama that is found in other Trek novels... All of these trademarks were there but sometimes you just got the feeling that the story was trying to prolong itself for no reason. I found myself 'jolting' through the middle chapters. Still, as mentioned by others, an ideal read for a Sunday afternoon and worth it for any Graf fans.

4.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining and well-written. January 5, 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This book may not be quite as thought-provoking as the first book in this miniseries, ("Ancient Blood" by Diane Carey) but it is definitely better written and more entertaining than the vast majority of Star Trek books, and worth the read for anyone not inimically opposed to reading a Star Trek book. The characterizations of the regulars seem well-handled, and if none of the minor characters really shone, they at least had an opportunity to make more than a walk-on appearance. Meanwhile, the antagonists were fairly standard, but they weren't really the point of the story, and if the concept behind the new alien species wasn't all that new, that wasn't much of a detriment to the story. It WOULD have been nice if the concept of "honor" was a bit more central to the story, rather than mostly being a series of plot devices that the characters had to work with and/or around. But overall, this book is very good, falling just short of the five-star mark.

4.0 out of 5 stars Definatly a good read. January 20, 1998
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I'd say this book is a typical DS9 book. Dr. Bashir is kidnapped for his medical prowess and, true to all Treks, figures out how to communicate with the intelligent indiginous life forms (no, not the Klingons). Kira has to supress her fighting instincts, and a whole bunch of other stuff. There's a rogue semi-leader, some nice "pack-horse species," and comets are all burning up the planet. There's Cardassians, Klingons, the Defiant, very little station time (this is good every now and then!), and we read about how narrowly our heroes avoid death, again, and... again! I'd say a lazy Sunday afternoontime read. No other time would really do. But it was a good book, just read the series in order and you'll be fine!

5.0 out of 5 stars Klingon Honor meets Federation Prime Directive August 24, 1997
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Surprisingly thought provoking while being highly entertaining. Graf is a master at giving the Star Trek characters an extra depth and purpose, while creating interesting new plotlines with suspense and humor. Fun

4.0 out of 5 stars Good book, misleading summary. July 17, 2000
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Here is a much better summary than the one on the book jacket: "When the unexplained attack of a research vessel forces its crash on a dying planet, the crew of DS9 find themselves struggling to avoid war and stay alive. Who are the mysterious Klingon exiles on the planet? Why are they holding the researchers hostage? And how can Sisko keep everyone alive when the sky is full of fire and enemies? The final discovery, however, is far more dangerous than either race could have dreamed."
