Station rage proves to be a highly charged action packed book that balances character development perfectly with suspense and drama. Although Diane Carey did a good job with recreating the characters she didn't quite catch the verbiage of those we know and love. I recently read Micheal Jan Friedman's Saratoga - and that book captured the characters personalities and verbal quips perfectly. Even though Diane Carey missed the characters a tad, she did a good job conveying who they are as people.

I read this sometime in the last twenty years, but I was halfway thru before I remembered. Oh, the concept seemed familiar from page one but I kept thinking that I had started reading it and then had put it down.

Then I got to the part where Odo was attacked in the lift... and, honestly I recalled all of Odo's suffering and nothing about the rest of the book.

That was, of course, because that subplot was the best part of the book and the High Gul just got downright boring by then.
Deep inside the station is a tomb of Cardassian soldiers, ghosts from Cardassia's early empire who are just waiting to be awakened so that they might wage war against her foes. This is the effectively creepy setup for Station Rage, in which Garak loses his mind and Kira Nerys stops being The Major and is reduced to an anxious girl in uniform, smitten by the sheer awesomeness of The Sisko into watching him do battle like an action hero. Carey's writing is stilted here, and the handling of charact ...more
Carey is one of my favorite Star Trek authors and does an great job with this DS9 book! Excellent job capturing the likeness of most all characters. 4/5
A fascinating premise and a skilled author with a solid grip on the characters combine to make this one of the better DS9 novels so far.
Holy Cardassian Mummies! Well, not actually, but close enough to be entertaining. While some of the details don't match up with what we know about Cardassia, Station Rage does a pretty good job creating an action packed story.

I'm not 100% on the characterizations of Sisko and Kira, but the rest are pretty good. Garak isn't quite right either, but there's a nice scene with him and Bashir that made me happy although I'm not sold on the idea of Bashir not being suspicious of Garak.

Overall, this is

A novel that manages to brilliantly capture the intensity of DS9 at its best...and the character of Sisko in particular. This is an intensity of plot and emotion you rarely find in the early DS9 novels, apart from "Fallen Heroes". This one is easily a milestone in the book series, and one of Diane Carey's best "Star Trek" contributions.
I thought this was great - the best ST novel I have read in a long, long time. The characterisation was spot on and the story was one you could imagine happening on the series. It was full of action, surprises and a spookiness that I really liked. A very clever tale!!
Justin Rees
Excellence in every sense of the word! Diane Carey is a master of character intensity and the darker side of DS9. This was as thrilling as any episode of the show and was a truly enjoyable read. Must read to any DS9 fan
A good story. A cardassian tomb is hidden on DS9, things start to go wrong when its inhabitants wake up. A very good story with lots of unexpected plot twists.
I really liked this book. GREAT!
