This is the third book in a series of four, featuring the Star Trek "Invasion!" event.
FEAR AND MISTERY
Seventy years ago, the Furies tried to invade the Alpha and Beta Quadrants, and Captain Kirk was barely able to repel the attack, but hardly was the first time that these demonic-like villains were in our realm, centuries ago, way before that any civilization would be able to stand, the Furies were hellish rulers of all...
...but something happened and they ...more
A starship, nearly torn to pieces, is found hidden in a comet. After study, Starfleet finds it to be an alternate version of the Defiant...nearly five thousand years old. The Deep Space Nine crew (most of them) are brought in to solve the mystery of how their ship was thrown into the distant past and wrecked in battle.
All this aside however, looking at this as the third of a four part series I didn’t feel like it really held up ...more
The revelation at the end doesn’t feel worth the time spent on it, maybe it would have been better if they cut it in haft and paired it with whatever comes in “The Final Fury”.
Hopefully there’ll be a bigger pay off next book!

L.A. Graf (Let's All Get Rich And Famous) is the pseudonym for a team of Star Trek writers. It was not a surprise to me, to find that this is the pivotal and expository novel in the overall arc of the crossover series - probably the one around which the other novels were ...more
The story, without any spoilers, is hard to explain. Suffice it to say Starfleet finds a 5,000 year old artifact they think Sisko will be very interested in seeing. There is some clues left behind that make them believe the mysterious Furies are involved.
The big plus o ...more
You don't mine. Weapons grade plutonium!
It is man made. This is a really big mistake in this book!
High school physics here.
I don't think I am going to finish this book. You just can't sit down and write Trek and not understand basic high school science.
Trace amounts of plutonium can be found in nature. But that stuff is too scarce and too weak to be used for anything. You have to have a dedicated reac ...more
Quark sniffed with what Kira suspected was supposed to be indignation, somehow managing to sound both
obsequious and offended at the same time. “That's not true,” the Ferengi countered. “We have several,
depending on how much negotiation it will take to change your mind.”
The racial characteristics were all here and neatly done, although at times the switching between station and ship was a little more confusing than it should've ...more
There were some interesting ideas in this book, and it was pleasant to revisit characters that I love. However, there were some pivotal moments near the end where the relationship between Jadzia Dax's host and symbiont body was portrayed in a way that ran completely counter to how it worked in the actual show. It was only a few lines, but they displayed such a fundamental dif ...more
Book 3 of 4 in invasion series. You don't necessarily have to read 1 or 2 to understand this one. The events are pretty self contained, any explanation needed is given early on in book. Lots of sci-fi and a little bit of horror. Great concept. In the near future something bad happens, the Defiant is thrown back in time 5,000 yrs( everyone onboard is long dead by events in book) and current crew must make sure that it doesn't happen again. I highly recommend you read this(who ...more
Third in the series and I just only somewhat like the series.
Like the two other books, same premise and a few surprises. I still worked through this series. The characters are again as you know them to be and expect. So if you have read the first strike & Soldiers of Fear you will enjoy this one too. The writing style does change with each author but the characters show through as you expect them. I recommend it so far.
My only problem was that Odo seemed a little *too* sarcastic at times, especially toward Kira. Also, now that I think about it, Pak Doran was a little two-dimensional as well.
Otherwise, a great read.
The worst part, at least for me, is its only tangential relationship to the main Fury/Invasion! storyline. We get that connection very late in the story, by which time I didn't even care anymore.
