Helping distract Jake from his troubles Not a big part of the book but a thoughtful one and I m glad it was included A pretty pic space battle with clever and surprising tactics Usually we get to see inside the captain s head and see the plotting of a battle but this one we re spectators of It was a nice way to create suspense and keep readers guessing without using cheap tricksCons Motives aren t obvious The antagonists don t seem to have a clear An Introduction To Genetic Engineering end goal other than cause trouble Granted that may have been part of the point The story doesn t have muchmotional punch There are several characters with tragic backstories but there just isn t enough depth to them to make me sympathize with them At one point during the book Siskoxplains to Dax how to wiggle to distract male characters with the xplanation that Dax isn t used to being female again yet However Jadzia s been female her whole life so I m not sure why she d need the refresheralso just a kind of creepy and weird scene Several allusions to or attempted rape sexual assault I don t feel any were dealt with well here One was it seemed almost used for comedic ffect or if that wasn t the intent it segued immediately into a humorous scene The motives of the Starfleet officers doesn t make much sense They seem to take some huge risks when reconnaissance would have been a smarter strategy The Klingons presence is never The Horus Heresy explainedOverall I didn t really like this book though it did have some good moments The plot definitely picks up towards thend of the book after a bit of a tedious start Not something I d want to re read or recommend I have to admit I m pleasantly surprised that the book in some fashion portrays Bajor as this planet of people that had once been very advanced particularly in terms of space faring that was damn near wiped out by 50 years of Cardassian occupation per this book although I know in other books the Occupation is referenced as lasting 75 years and I seem to recall an Celia And The Wolf earlypisode of the show in which the Occupation is referenced as having lasted a century And here we are somewhere after the second season multi pisode opener watching Bajoran workers put the finishing touches on an outdated Starfleet vessel they built from scratch in ship building facilities that are per I want to like this one probably than I should While it isn t terrible it s not anything to write home about To be
