it was ok
bookshelves: scifi-fantasy, star-trek

Yes, believe it or not, I marked down a Star Trek novel as only 2 stars. I was not happy with this book at all. I understand the Star Trek universe is now screwed with the new game: Star Trek Online. It just seemed the majority of the book was backstory for STO.

Sisko was a complete disappointment. I used to love the guy. C'mon, what's not to love...he punched Q!! Classic! He was a combination of Kirk and Picard. Now he's leaving his wife and child because the Prophets don't talk to him anymore. He won't have any sort of friendship with his new crew. Is this Sisko a doppelganger? Hmmm.

I seriously hope better things are in store for DS9 and for the Star Trek universe. Otherwise, it's going to make this Trekkie pretty annoyed!

BTW, did you ever think Kira would become a vedek? Nope, neither did I!
