AND we finally get to Deep Space Nine!!! For this challenge we’re reading Betrayal (Star Trek: Deep Space Nine #6) by Lois Tilton.
I was looking forward to this book and sadly I found myself looking forward to the one after this novel. It really kinda fell flat on it’s face there. The author uses only the main characters and doesn’t stray to faraway from that. Seems like this was new ground for the writer, kinda playing safe so to speak.
Basically you take a “24” terrorist attack story line and change out the characters with Star Trek characters. There you go… Sadly I wish I was making it up.. It’s not a bad read really. Not enjoyable, it’s just there flouting along. I think O’Brien was the only really enjoyable part in the whole thing. But it this story line as been played out so much you can guess whats going to happen next. So I found myself jumping ahead in the book. To only find myself correct :(.
When terrorists threaten a conference of Federation ambassadors, Commander Benjamin Sisko must defuse a deadly situation before the terrorists destroy Deep Space Nine and the entire planet Bajor.
I say skip over this book and found something better. What is sad I’m seeing a lot of these Star Trek book are riddled with mistakes and lack of knowledge of the characters/history of the shows. It’s like they aren’t even trying. I find the older story lines with the original crew are more on point and more enjoyable to read. Once TNG & DS9 come out they are just pumping these things out with no thought what so ever. Anywho, I think I’ll make another post about my complaints on the Star Trek series.
