About the Author

Judith & Garfield Reeves-Stevens are the authors of more than thirty books, including numerous New York Times bestselling Star Trek novels. Their newest novel of suspense, Freefall, is a follow-up to their Los Angeles Times bestseller, Icefire, and is set against the political intrigue and historical conspiracy surrounding the next race to the Moon.

In keeping with their interest in both the reality of space exploration and the science fiction that helps inspire it, in 2003 Judith and Garfield were invited to join a NASA Space Policy Workshop for the development of NASA's new goals as put forth in the agency's 2004 Vision for Space Exploration. Then, for the 2004 television season, the couple joined the writing staff of Star Trek: Enterprise as executive story editors.

Well, that was a fun ride. This trilogy is the best Trek prose story in years. Please let the Reeves-Stevens write more Trek. This trilogy feels much more "epic" in scope than most Trek series, even the other multi-book series. The multiple time jumps are quite a feat of editing, and the way everything finally falls together reminded me a bit of the end of Back to the Future II. The writers and characters do a wonderful, dizzying tap dance around past events, creating a nice interlocking puzzle that must be unravelled. If you've been avoiding the Trek books due to the feeling that they were getting repetitive, give these a try. If you've been following them all along, be prepared for a wake-up call. MILLENIUM raises the bar on what Pocket should be publishing from now on.

...but it eventually settles down to the inspired level of the first two. But, as Meatloaf put it; "Two out of three ain't bad". One of the most powerful characters throughout the series is a "secular" Bajoran Starfleet officer (she grew up on a newer colony without much "old world" influence) becomes in this volume a religious fanatic who gets brainwashed into a breakaway sect whose "emmisary" is a Weyoun clone (! ). Another feature is Jake Sisko's opportunity to play a real adult role rather than Ben's kid. Odo is just, well...Odo. The type of dude you can always count on. I'm not going to give away any more of the story--with a tale this big, you can give the ending away a lot earlier than with just one book. But here's a warning--you can't just buy this book and come away satisfied--you gotta get the other two. Hell, buy all three at once, it's worth the 16 bucks and will save you on shipping. The Reeves-Stevens household has apparently decided to take the "lightweight" out of Trek fiction and I hope it becomes a habit. As well as rubbing off on other Trek authors.

As far as I can see, there are two kinds of readers: Those who have read the previous 2 books of the Millennium series, and those who haven't. To people belonging to the second group, I don't advise to read this book. Although the authors really try to give all necessary background information, they, most unfortunately, don't succeed. As a result, you will be unable to understand important parts of the plot and to feel the charm of "Inferno".
For the other group of readers, this book is a real MUST!
The story seems to be quite simple: The Universe has collapsed and the only existing realm is the wormhole. Starship Defiant, Klingon battlecruiser Boreth and Deep Space Nine itself are caught in the nonlinear realm in bubbles of space-time, the only remnants of the old Universe. Those bubbles are extremely unstable and dissolve quickly, so that the crews of the Defiant and the Boreth have got only about thirty hours to save the Universe, to bring it back from nothingness. If they fail, they are doomed to share that nothingness with their former Universe.
Now you probably want to know how it is possible to save something that doesn't exist anymore, that has physicaly never existed and will never exist. I confess I don't know either, and that is the first negative point about this novel. There are certain physical processes going on, but the authors obviously don't consider them too important to explain them.
Exactly the same can be told about time travel which is extremely important for the story. In the first two books (particularly in Book 2), methods of time travel were explained using the most modern theories concerning space-time. Even though I am not a physicist, I liked them very much and wanted to find out more about them in "Inferno".

You have to be impressed by how the author managed to keep up with all the nuances of the time jumping with the various characters in their various scenarios. Perhaps there was a little too much attempt to mention every possible Star Trek character in the story but a real Star Trek fan would appreciate it. Now that this series is 20 years in the past, it was fun to read about the characters again, Hopefully it will never grow old.

Epically written, the third book in the Star Trek Deep Space Nine: Millennium series does not disappoint and will leave you feeling as though you truly read a great book. It begins just where the last book left off, letting us see what happened to all those engulfed in the two opposing wormholes. There are several time-jumps involved – I don’t want to give details for those who have not read it yet – and a brilliant job at tying up lose-ends that started in the first novel. I have to agree with another who posted a review on here. “MILLENIUM raises the bar on what Pocket should be publishing from now on.”

This is not a perfect book - the ending is rather unclear and surprisingly rushed. However, the scope of the book, carrying the cast from my favorite Trek series up to and beyond the seeming end of the universe, and the way the characters face desparate odds and still overcome them, is fantastic. The Reeves-Stevenses know how to tell an epic story. That's something that Star Trek rarely does well, even at its best. This would have made a spectacular bit of television.
And once again, Garak - not content to have his own book - steals the show. This book is worth reading if only to see what happens when Garak has a conversation with Garak!
If you're a Trek fan, these books are pretty much a must-read. If you're not a Trekkie but enjoy epic space fantasy, you'll be lost at first, but you'll have fun. And you might even decide to go back and give reruns of DS9 a try.
