Also, I might not be the only one to think this, but President Ishan is either a Manchurian Candidate of the Typhon Pact or another Section 31 President I am leaning closer to the former than the latter (section 31 is many things, but they're not this self-destructive). If Ishan really is a Typhon Pact Manchurian candidate, I'd be excited. Also for once, Section 31's existence seems to be justified, like the Obsidian Order through Garak. If Admiral Akaar has grown into a real star in his own right and could easily beccome President himself, if he wanted it.
I feel like the story is getting more intertwined with political, social, and cultural aspects that readers are learning more and more about these cultures that make their civilization unique. The Federation might be a large interstellar government, but it is still filled with divergent views and beliefs. Same with Romulans, Ferengi, Cardassians, Tzenkithi, Bajoran, and Andorians.
Can't wait for Poisoned Chalice
The story is set in the year 2385, ten years after the end of the Deep Space 9 TV series and shortly after the previous couple stories in "The Fall" miniseries. Around three years have passed since Typhon Pact: Paths of Disharmony and the events that led to the planet Andoria leaving the Federation. The story focuses on Doctor Bashir (from Deep Space 9) and his efforts to help the Andorian people cure a medical crisis despite the consequences it will have for himself.
Before I delve any deeper I should take a moment to point out that I didn't like the Typhon Pact book Paths of Disharmony. I rated it a 2 out of 5 and felt it was a total slap in the face of everything Star Trek was supposed to be about. This book as a direct follow up of that story shares many of the flaws of its predecessor. My main problem with that story was the way the author Dayton Ward chose to portray the characters in very stark black and white terms. No effort was made at finding a diplomatic solution as both sides seemed to be focused on simply trampling over the opposing sides views. The saving grace of this story is that it largely resolves the shared storyline of these two books.
Sadly, much like the other books in "The Fall" miniseries, this story leaves me liking the Federation less and less. The primary focus of this story isn't so much the Andorian angle but rather how the internal politics of the Federation are getting in the way of helping them.Read more ›
Bashir is a fascinatingly flawed character, and a big part of the reason is the glaring contrast between his amazing, genetically enhanced abilities, and the emotional development of... maybe a thirteen-year-old? :P He just doesn't seem to understand what an unbelievable can of worms he opens by trying to create the solution to the Andorian problem, including the fact that... um... maybe there really was a good reason for the Federation to keep it a secret. He's always dancing right at the edge of the cliff, and a happy ending does not seem to be a foregone conclusion at all (not giving anything away here-- notice how I'm not saying whether there's a happy ending or not?Read more ›

It's good to see known characters which can act a bit our of expectation.
Nice plot. I find it good NOT to read the book at once, give it time digest.
If I had to read the description (did he cut and paste) of the end of a transmission and the Federation symbol appearing on the view screen one more time. . . Read morePublished 2 months ago by Roy
A bit slow but it sets up the following stories nicely. Although technically it stands on its own, its useful to have read the rest of the Typhon Pact stories. Read morePublished 3 months ago by Melvin K. Patterson
