"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

My favorite story was "...Loved I Not Honor More" with Quark and Grilka. This story seems to pick up where "Looking for Parmach in All the Wrong Places" left off. It was GREAT fun visualizing the scene between Quark and Rom as they discussed the safeties in the holosuite as it was laugh-out-loud FUNNY!
I was also intrigued by the Anonymous author who wrote "Revisited" Parts One and Two. Why did this person choose to remain anonymous? Curious minds want to know!
Now if only Andrew J. Robinson and Alexander Siddig would publish their stage play so that others could read it, then it would make my enjoyment complete. Given that "The Calling" made frequent references to "the Vinculum", I'd like to know what in the heck he was talking about!
Within just a few pages, you'll quickly see that this is a different kind of STAR TREK than most people knew existed. This is a rich, messy universe, far, far beyond the scope of the other STAR TREK series. In these post-ENTERPRISE days when STAR TREK seems to be a disgraced genre, the one constant source of good new material is the DEEP SPACE NINE line. This first stop along the way back to STAR TREK will both give you new material while reminding you of the high points of each of the seven televised seasons.
Perhaps the best story of the lot is Kevin Summers' "Ha'mara", which takes us all the way back to Sisko's first journey to the Bajor that would become his home over the course of the television series. Notable for giving us our first real look at a lot of introductions that the television pilot left out, it weaves together broad political themes with the very personal struggles of Ben and Jake Sisko. DEEP SPACE NINE was always remarkable for its deft handling of the big and small pictures, but maybe there's never been quite as poignant a moment in any part of the DEEP SPACE NINE legacy--televised or literary--as Summers gives us here. Without giving too much away, I'll just say that in the midst of exploring exactly why the Bajorans were so distrustful of the new Federation presence, Summers takes the time to give us a portrait of the exact moment Jake Sisko became a writer. So simply moving was this scene that I can still remember it now, some two years after having read it.
If there had been nothing else in this book but that one moment, I would have felt my purchase price fully justified. Happily, there's so very much more in this rich collection, which leaves no major character without a truly signature moment.
