Editorial Reviews

Review

"I have found that good novels have a color one can associate with the tone of the story, and in the case of this book that color is Cardassian grey.... Good and evil are not cleanly divided between people in the book. Some of the Cardassians are good, and some of the Bajorans are bad, in other words." -- The-Trades.com

This is an excellent novel that's very well written. It fills a gap most of us who have watched DS9 have wondered about for years. Reading it is a lot like watching one of those old black and white horror movies. You know the monster is coming and you know what's going to happen is going to be bad and the characters have no idea. The threat of the Occupation lingers so heavily over the book and adds another level of intensity. It's also interesting to see a pre-Occupation Bajor and how the Bajorans existed before their world was basically shattered. I can't wait to see how this series ends. Very well done.

I'd recommend picking up A Stitch in Time by Andrew J. Robinson for a bit of background reading about the Oralian Way as well.

Deep Space Nine is my favourite series of all time, and the Cardassians have become my favourite aliens (sorry Vulcans!). I found the situation of a military based society having to come to a peaceful coexistence (and even being aided by, in the later years) with the very people whom they had occupied and exploited to be endlessly fascinating and insightful in our own culture (this is what Trek has always done, and what many non Trekkers have missed when they deride the series). This book answers all of the questions about the early years of the occupation of Bajor: why it happened, what were the Cardassians' motives towards Bajor and its people and how they changed, the social unrest in Bajor over their caste system prior to the occupation, the evolution of the future Gul Dukat and his career, how many Cardassians opposed the enslavement of the Bajorans, and how a peaceful people like those of Bajor can be transformed into a bloody guerrilla. Everything that DS9 had left you wanting to know more about in concern to the Bajorian Occupation, the cultures of the Cardassian and Bajorian peoples, and the hopes of both for the future are covered here. This is a well written, awesome book that even the most discriminating Star Trek fan will enjoy. I can't wait for the next two in the trilogy!

This was just OK. Probably the biggest issue I had was it was to sedentary. There was a lot of discussions. Characters discussed topics, then they discussed some more, then they made comments, then they talked. It wasn't until the last third of the book where things really started to pick up. Don't get me wrong. I like dialogue and appreciate it but it was difficult to stay interested in the book. Perhaps if the author had interspersed the action & dialogue evenly throughout it would have been more captivating.

The writing wasn't bad but it wasn't great either. Even though I said there was a lot of dialogue it wasn't very intellectual dialogue. So, a little weak in that area.

The characters I mildly cared for. Strangely enough I cared more for one of the enemies than I did the heroes. This character was the most complex and had a back story that made you empathize with him.

So, I don't think it would hurt to read this book. It has some interesting things in it that were entertaining and enlightening. So, go ahead and give it a try. You might find that you enjoy it.

When I saw that this book was the backstory of Cardassia taking over Bajor I couldn't wait to read it. Especially since it gives a little more insight into what made Gul Dukat the way he was. Very well written, descriptive book. Can't wait to read the others in the series.

Deep Space Nine was always my favorite Trek series. One of the aspects I really liked was the richness of the story. It's clear Bajor and Cardassia had a long history even before Sisko arrives. The Terok Nor series tries to flesh out that history. Ultimately, I thought the first book - Day of the Vipers - was a pretty decent backstory. The Cardassian occupation of Bajor is more gradual and subtle, and hence more realistic, than fans probably expected. I think the book nails Dukat's character, as well as some of the Bajoran politicians who had been introduced in various episodes. At times thought the dialogue did come across as a bit stilted ("You're teasing me, Dukat."). Pa'Dar's character was definitely underutilized. However, the biggest disappointment was Darrah Mace, the Bajoran protagonist. He is supposed to be a sympathetic character, but often just comes across as a jerk, especially when he puts his job over his family. His wife is depicted as a nagging shrew. I hope he doesn't return in the next books. Still, for DS9 fans this is as close to an official backstory as we'll get and it's definitely full of intrigue.

We all knew that this story was not going to end well, and that made it a rather difficult read for me; also, it started rather slowly (discounting the prologue which really was rather just confusing). Still, overall I have to say that the story was well-told and moving. It's a story that suffers from some of the same symptoms as the 3 Star Wars prequels; because they're prequels, we all know where the story is headed, and since that is "nowhere that we want it to go", it's not a fun read. It's one thing for a story to have an unhappy ending when there was some possibility along the way that that ending might have been averted; it's something else again when the reader KNOWS from the very beginning what the upcoming disaster is.
