Comets, Klingons and Cardassians, oh my!
There's plenty of each in this book as what starts off as a sightseeing expedition to watch a cometary event, turns into a conflict over a remote seemingly unimportant planet. On this adventure are also plenty of new aliens, the banchory and xirri, and, most importantly, the main DS9 crew.
Right off, I found the relationships between members of the DS9 crew to be one of the books' strengths. L.A. Graf brought little idiosyncrasies between characters I've e

The Klingons are one of the core races in the Star Trek universe and also one of my least favourites, which is a shame as they crop up all over the place. The ‘Day of Honor’ series of books all concentrated on the one day of the year that Klingons are meant to respect the honour of their enemies. The unfortunate thing about Klingon honour is that it seems to be used to do pretty much anything; it was honourable to murder them all could easily be it was honourable not to murder them all. Some of ...more

Once again, another deeply frustrating DS9 novel, especially so considering (1) LA Graf got it so right in "Time's Enemy", and (2) it's from a point in the novels where they WERE starting to get it right. How hard can it be to capture the characteristics of the DS9 cast? This is set during season 4 -- why is Odo so grumpy and sarcastic? Why is Sisko so stiff (does he ever call O'Brien "chief")? Why do Dax and Bashir appear so milquetoast? Why are Dax and Worf not engaging with Kor, the closest o ...more

Slow-paced beginning, but gets to some great payoffs in the last third.
Really liked how situations were used that wouldn't work in television.
And the fauna of the planet "Armageddon" was stunning, especially the "xerry"
(don't have the book at my side, spelling may be incorrect).
The author's name ist the pseudonym of (in this case) two women,
and also the acronym for "Let's All Get Rich And Famous". The novel is way
better than this tidbit implies. So far (two books to go) the best of the "Day of H

Love this series! Found all 4 books in the series at a shop called "Book Celler"! I actually read this one and the first book in the series in the same day. I couldn't put them down!

Even though DS9 is not my favorite series, one of its trademarks is its low amount of so-called "technobabble." If only this book embraced that. I would say this is overall an interesting Klingon story - and works well in the Klingon-Cardassian War timeframe - but it gets bogged down in environmental descriptive narratives, a new species it barely scratched the surface on, three groups of Klingons that we don't get to spend that much time because there is so many of them. I think this book just ...more

This is the second book of a short series exploring the idea of Klingon Honour. This story is set in the world of Deep Space Nine, where Sisko and his team are called to rescue a ship of veteran's from Klingon attack. Tracing the survivors to a planet being bombarded with asteroids, they also find the remnants of a Klongon colony. One left to die there for dishonouring the empire. Struggling to find the survivors, escape the impacts and ward of the Cardassians, they are in for a tough mission.

The Defiant goes to rescue a downed science research vessel. The planet it lands on is full of Klingon exiles, and the Klingons do not want the Federation anywhere near it. This would have made a good TV episode. The plot is very engaging, and the Klingons are depicted very well. I particularly liked the descriptions of the planet and its inhabitants. Surprisingly, it is more of an ensemble piece, even though Worf is on the cover of the book. A good read.

This was quite enjoyable, lacking some of the stiffness of the first TNG novel. Odd, to see so much Klingon in a DS9 environment, although in fairness Kira comes through with her usual Bajoran aplomb.
