Once they moved from world to world in a single step, through innumerable doors that spanned the galaxy. They were masters of space, and to those who feared them, they were demons of air and darkness. But long ago they left their empire and their miraculous technology behind. Now someone has found the key to it, and all those doors have been flung open.

CAREFUL, I GIVE SOMEMILD HINTS TO THE STORY IN THIS REVIEW

This is more of a 3.5 book for me.

I generally enjoyed the first half of it. But as soon the time shift started I thought that should have been two boks on there own.

The characters are still as great as they have been for the firts three novels in the series and I did enjoy to see some of the relationships and especially friednships develop some more. ( Nog and Shar as well as Quark and Ro Laren)

The plot as I stated was really good for he

Star Trek. Deep Space Nine. What more could you possibly want? :)

Reread. Even more frustratingly shackled to a crossover than ABYSS was. ABYSS, at least, was just part of a thematic crossover, a series of novels all dealing with Section 31. This book, however, was part of the GATEWAYS event, an idiotic, poorly-planned & executed sequel to a particularly forgettable TNG episode (and slightly more interesting DS9 episode) revolving around a particularly goofy piece of technology. That this novel works as well as it does, shackled to such a moronic story as ...more

The Gateways are causing pollution to kill the planet Europa Nova, and DS9 has to organise the evacuation. Quark is asked to negotiate on the Orion Syndicates behalf for the use of the Gateways. This is a fun book with some great character moments, particularly Quark and Kira. There is quite a bit of politics in this book, as people have to be persuaded to help the planet. It ends on a cliffhanger. A good read.

This is an excellent entry in the "Gateways" line of books and a very good entry in the Deep Space Nine relaunch series. As with all the Gateways books, this one annoyingly ends on a cliffhanger to be continued in the final book. The novel does pick up where The Next Generation's book finished, only without the resolution to the before-mentioned cliffhanger. The makers of the gateways are "unmasked" the numbers of chaotic events happening is increasing with in numbers and severity. In this case, ...more

A nice, solid entry in the Gateways series, but I definitely appreciate this novel more for its continuation of the story of Deep Space Nine than for the Petraw story. Seeing the DS9 characters come together to save the Europa Nova colony is a great story, and let us be honest, seeing a Jem'Hadar face off against a Hirogen is pretty darn cool. Great writing that kept me engrossed through the ending (which, of course, is a cliffhanger to be resolved in What Lay Beyond).

This book and the story Horn and Ivory comprised the final books in the "Twist of Faith" Omnibus.

They were also part of the "Gateways" books, that had one book from each series.

Not really much to say about it except it was fantastic. Just the way characters are fleshed out and taken in different directions really made the book hold up for me.

Especially Lauren Ro and Shar. You just have to read to find out about Lauren Ro, I was not expecting what I read!

The Ultimate "A fool and his money are soon parted" cashgrab from the Pocket Books Star Trek line - a line of poorly connected novels, each one without a last chapter that is to be collected in a later book.

I'm just as culpable having bought two of the damn things.
Michael
Excellent entry in the ongoing DS9 season 8 narrative. New characters are introduced, old characters have their plotlines advanced, and we the readers get to bear witness to a fight between a Hirogen and a Jem-Hadar!

It was...okay. I never like things that end on a cliffhanger, without giving us something in return. I wasn't interested in the Gateways concept, but picked this up because it's part of the DS9 relaunch.
Kiri
A Deep Space Nine novel set directly between Section 31 Abyss and Gateways 7 which continues to Twilight (DS9 Mission Gamma, Book 1) in a straight arc.

This was well doe and engaging. =)

My least favorite of the Gateways series, though that might have something to do with the fact that I wasn't much of a fan of the relaunched DS9 series, or of the Hirogen.
Benjamin Plume
I give this one an automatic bump over the others because it was in the DS9 Relaunch, which hasn't disappointed yet.
Tammy
Annoyingly, the endings of all the books in the series are in 'What Lay Beyond'.
DarkGizmo2
Das Buch ist ok! Wie ich finde ist es aber das bisher schwächste Buch der DS9-Reihe!
Julio
Pretty good cliff hanger. Decent read, could've been better.

Ohne die letzten 20% wären glatte fünf Sterne drin gewesen.
