Excellent novel!

Without a doubt it's the strongest, so far, in the book event The Fall from Star Trek. While the first book, Revelations and Dust was tedious and inconclusive,(See review...HERE ) and the second book, The Crimson Shadow was smart and surprising, (See review...HERE ), this third book was solid and inspiring. Definitely my hopes and expectations for the remaining fourth and fifth books are really high now. To begin to comment about this novel, I have to expose several variations

A Ceremony of Losses takes place three years after the events in the Path of Disharmony book. So it's been three years since Andor has seceded from the Federation. After the disaster that took place in the previous story-there have been some changes. The Enterprise crew is gone (likely banished to the far side of the galaxy after the hash they made of the initial situation), the Federation President Bacco has been assassinated and a new President Ishan is in charge. He has a far more hard-line v ...more

Like other David Mack Star Trek novels, there is a lot going on and a lot of ties to other Trek novels as well as established canon. There has been a very strong political aspect in recent Trek novels set post-Nemesis, and this book continues that trend. I read this one because I enjoyed the last book in the series so much (by Una McCormick). I hadn't read the Typhon Pact novels, so at times I felt like I was playing catch up. The cast of characters and weaving of subplots was great, but since a ...more

David Mack couldn't write a bad ST novel if he tried

I have stayed away from the fall series I think mainly because the 1st book didn't get the best reviews & I don't have a lot of time to read, so when I start a new book I want it to be something at least pretty good & worth my time. I read Disavowed & I loved it, & since it was just a continuation of what was started here with Ceremony I decided that I would read the fall series (just minus the first book) &I'm glad I did. C

Now this is a way to start 2018! When Julian Bashir's vacation is interrupted by a Ferengi delivering a message from an old comrade in hiding, the good doctor has no idea his finest hour is upon him. He is asked to receive stolen biological data, and from the noise therin produce a pattern that might save a people from extinction. It won't be easy: the data is considered highly sensitive by three governments, one of which might kill Bashir for trying to use it, and even if he finds a cure, his c ...more

In a way, this story is based on a premise that is very contrary to the original vision of Gene Roddenberry; he envisioned a world (universe) in which the earth had solved paltry problems like politics and had joined a Galactic Federation of like-minded planets. In his vision, the Federation would never have been led by a deceitful, self-serving, petty politician. Nan Bacco was his vision of a Federation president; he would have been appalled at the suggestion that Ishan could ever come to power ...more

The 3rd book in the "Star Trek: The Fall" series, David Mack's "A Ceremony of Losses" may in fact be the best book of the series so far & while solving one long standing crisis changes 1 character's direction forever. The book itself is primarily centered on Dr. Bashir who is contacted by Thrishar ch'Thane who has been working with Professor zh'Thiin on Andor to solve the Andorian genetic crisis which could be solved by using the Shedai Meta-Genome provided to them by the Tholians. It is thi ...more

This is the third entry in the so-far-phenomenal series, The Fall. A Ceremony of Losses is a gripping and tense story that continues and adds to the cinematic events of The Fall, while also continuing the Typhon Pact story line, tying up some loose ends from the Vanguard series, and resolving the Andorian reproduction crisis that has been written about for years now.

I had found the previous three books by Mack, the Cold Equations trilogy, to be quite a bit below the quality I expect from David M

A great book, following on from the previous 'The Fall' novels. This DS9 focused story takes us back to the Andorian fertility crisis, and the political situation following the Tholian's sharing of the sharing the Shedai Genome and Andor's secession (ST: Typhon Pact Paths of Disharmony).
Mack delivers the story in his usual fashion. For me it was a slow start, not really hooking me in till about chapter 6, but I was thoroughly hooked, reading most of the rest in one sitting. This I feel is a Bash

What can I say other than I loved this book. The story line concerns Andoria, the Andorian fertility crisis and how that is being used by various elements in the Federation, the Typhon Pact and on Andoria for political purposes. With that is also then Dr. Bashir's efforts to solve the crisis and get a cure to stop an eventual extinction. It's great.

The pacing is good, the story is good. I like the character of the Federation President Pro Tem and what his aspirations brings to the overall story;

This book is every libertarians worst nightmare, not just one over bearing, near dictatorial leader but two willing to kill off a whole race of people for political gain. The first half of the book was pretty slow, but once things got going my heart didn't stop racing until a half hour after I finished. Letting my geek flag fly, I liked Mack's hat tip to David Brin when using the term "uplift" from one of my all time favorite sci-fi series.

This book is infuriating. It is brilliantly written, fast paced, full of unexpected plot twists and action, and a good length. It also has a climax that reads like a cop-out, and instead of a resolution we get a short epilogue and a very large cliffhanger. Having said all that, I could not put it down, and I am eagerly waiting to read the next book in the series.

This is the best book so far inThe Fall series. David Mack didn't hold back any punches. It's been a long time, prob since the destiny trilogy, I've been so intrigued in a Star Trek storyline. It had everything from action and suspense. I loved every page of it. Great job Mr. Mack!

The only thing that gets this book 4 stars is the author's usage of GD a couple times throughout. The story itself was awesome. Another excellent David Mack story. I can't wait to pick up Bashir's thread (in the Section 31 book, I believe).

The Andorian race is dying. Dr Julian Bashir has received a plea to find a cure. The only draw back is, if he accepts this task, he faces charges of treason. You see, the cause of this affliction is under Starfleet security and Andor is no longer part of the Federation.

I have always enjoyed David Mack's writing style and plot lines...This is another exemplary example of his talents. If you are going to read any of The Fall series, this is the one to read.

The Bashir Ultimatum. The Fall continues as Doctor Bashir risks everything he's ever known to save the Andorians from extinction. It's a great political thriller involving everyone from the crew of DS9 to Section 31 to the office of he Federation President. It works well as a middle chapter of this series because it resolves it's primary story while leaving many questions unanswered for the next book. I'm really curious as to what the truth is behind the motivations of the current president. I h ...more

Another great book of the series "Star Trek : The Fall"! Loved the suspense, really a roller-coaster ride, and the politics, once again, I greatly enjoyed. (I wish they would put another Trek series on regular network tv, this time dealing with Federation politics, sort of a "Madam Secretary" or "West Wing" in the Trek Universe....it would be intriguing and quite different from the usual Trek stuff.) I rooted for the Andorians, for Bashir, and for Ezri Dax to decide where her loyalties truly lay ...more

This is another espionage story involving Bashir and his lover Sarina Douglas. It feels like part 2 of David Mack's Zero Sum Game, the only Typhon Pact novel that I really liked. I wish I had skipped all of the Typhon Pact and The Fall novels and only read this one and Zero Sum Game. It's a really good, action-packed read. It's also refreshing to read a story where the Federation is not a perfect utopia and Starfleet is not infallible.

I really enjoyed the stuff with Ezri in this book. David Mack writes her well. More and more it makes me think that one of the future Trek shows should involve Ezri and the Aventine.

This story was absolutely outstanding. Really liked it. David Mack hit another out of the park. Only downside was that I didn’t want to see the freighter captain die, he was a hoot.

Book three did not disappoint. Poor Julian, and Dax, and everyone else. Definitely will finish this series. Great writing here.

Interesting Star Trek lore, which falls in line with the universe. Doesn't fail to excite, although some of the main characters feel paper thin, however most don't.

In the last year, roughly, I’ve slowly gotten back on track with reading Star Trek novels. First with James Swallow’s Cast No Shadow last year, and then with the first two books in the Typhon Pact: The Fall 5-book series this year, the experience has reminded me again and again of how and why I fell in love with Star Trek in the first place. The aforementioned series also happens to be on my “25 Series To Read i

Star Trek: The Fall: A Ceremony of Losses by David Mack Shar asks Bashir for help when studying the Meta-Genome provided by the Tholians leaves the Andorians stumped in their search for a cure for their fertility crisis.

Der Spannungsbogen von Star Trek - Romanen ist oft weit von dem entfernt, was im SciFi - Bereich möglich ist. Leider. Woran das genau liegt, darüber möchte ich nicht über die Maßen spekulieren; ein bisschen könnte es damit zu tun haben, dass die Autoren ihre Bücher aufbauen wie eine Sendung aus "Star Trek: The Next Generation". Allenfalls noch wie "Star Trek: Deep Space 9".

Jetzt könnte man sich fragen, was eigentlich schlecht daran wäre. Nun ... für ihre Zeit waren beide Serien sensationell - un

Nach dem hervorragenden 2. Band der Star Trek Serie "The Fall" war es kaum möglich, dieses Niveau nochmals zu erreichen, David Mack hat es aber mit diesem Band geschafft, mit dem er die Geburten-Krise der Andorianer abschließt. Bekanntlich ist Andor, als eine der Gründungsmitglieder der Förderation, aus der Förderation der Planeten ausgestiegen, weil eine radikale Bewegung der Meinung war, die Förderation würde dem aktuten Aussterbeproblem der Andorianer gleichgültig gegenüber stehen (beschriebe ...more
