Synopsis

TRILL. The Trill are a combination of a symbiont and a host. The symbiont lives for hundreds of years in one host after another: each body is different, each personality is different, each life is different -- but all of them are one. The symbiont accumulates experiences, relationships, memories ...Andy Mangels and Michael A. Martin have set their story on this most multi-layered and extraordinary of worlds. When Trill involvement in the assassination of an allied world leader comes to light, the reason lies in the terrifying and tragic origins of the Trill -- and the answers reveal unsuspected links to other regions of the Star Trek universe. BAJOR. Political intrigue and interpersonal conflict in the style of The West Wing dominate on Deep Space Nine's core world of Bajor. The future of Bajor and the new role of long-missing Captain Benjamin Sisko are linked as this tale lays the groundwork for a major new storyline in further Deep Space Nine novels.

1 von 1 Kunden fanden die folgende Rezension hilfreich Von Ein Kunde am 16. Oktober 2005
Format: Taschenbuch
Das Buch besteht aus zwei unabhängigen Geschichten. Die Erste spielt auf dem Planeten Trill, der Heimat von Ezri Dax und spielt in der inoffiziellen 8. Staffel von DS9. Es geht um Unruhen auf Trill die durch das Auftauchen von Parasiten entstanden sind (Siehe Buch Star Trek DS9 Unity und TNG Folge: Die Verschwörung). Die Geschichte ist gut geschrieben und auch spannend. Der Inhalt leider hahnebüchend. Die Autoren schmeißen kurzerhand einen ganzen und auch recht wichtigen Planeten von Star Trek auf den Kopf und machen was sie wollen damit. Da die Bücher nicht kanon sind, werden diese Veränderungen so gravierend sie auch sind, niemals in einer eventuellen Serie oder einem Film auftauchen. Es werden Verbindungen erstellt, wo keine existieren und Wesen erschaffen wo es keine gibt. Das ganze Buch zeugt von einer Arroganz der Autoren und Editoren, die für sie nicht angemessen ist. Für Fans von Ezri Dax kann man es empfehlen. Ihr Charakter wird weiter ausgebaut und es gibt wichtige Veränderungen in ihrem Leben. Für Fans der Trill ist es wahrscheinlich nicht zu empfehlen. Aber es bleibt natürlich Geschmackssache.
Die zweite Geschichte spielt auf Bajor und könnte eigentlich auf jedem möglichen Planeten spielen. Das es gerade Bajor ist, ist nicht sehr wichtig und damit wurde das Ziel dieser Bücher wohl verfehlt. Empfehlen kann man diese Geschichte hauptsächlich für Fans von Jake Sisko, um den es hier hauptsächlich geht. Eine B-Story handelt auch von der Premierministerin von Bajor. Die ist soweit auch in Ordnung und auch wichtig für wohl kommende DS9 Bücher, aber in meinen Augen halt nicht sehr bajoranisch.

Das Buch führt zu unerwarteten Einblicken in die Gesellschaft von Trill und Bajor. Insbesondere die Welt der vereinigten Trills und der Symbionten wird völlig auf den Kopf gestellt. Gleichzeitig werden Verknüpfungen zu früheren Büchern und Serien hergestellt.
Eine verblüffende, aber sehr interessante Sichtweise. Werde mir daher auch die übrigen Bücher der Reihe kaufen.

Trill und Bajor begegnen sich in diesen beiden Novellen und dabei werden allerlei historische und soziologische Hintergründe geklärt. Für Fans der Serie sicherlich unverzichtbar, auch wenn Neulinge oder Gelegenheitsgucker hier nicht soviel Interessantes finden werden.

Star Trek DS9 - The Worlds of DS9 #2

3. Trill: Unjoined
Oktober 2376 und somit eine Woche nach Unity...: Auf Trill ist die Hölle los. Die Nichtvereinigten glauben weniger Privilegien zu haben als die vereinigten Trill. So haben sie es u. a. auf jene und die Symbionten abgesehen. Außerdem spielt noch die Ermordung des Ersten Ministers Shakaars eine Rolle. Trills Position in der Föderation ist nicht gesichert, weil die Welt es lieber vorzieht, ihre Probleme zu verschweigen und unter sich auszumachen. In diesem Chaos wird Ezri Dax nach Trill beordert. Gegen ihren Willen bekommt sie Gesellschaft ihres Partners Julian Bashir. Obwohl dieser ranghöher ist, wird Ezri ihm vor die Nase gesetzt, weil sie Kommandooffizierin ist und sich in Trillfragen besser auskennt als er. Während der Mission wird ihnen einiges klar und das ist jetzt kein Spoiler, weil jeder der die Vorbände gelesen hatte, hatte dieses bereits erwartet: Die Parasiten sind entfernte Verwandte der Symbioten, genetisch verändert um eine ehemalige Seuche zu überstehen, die längst vergessen werden sollte. Aufgrund unterschiedlicher Herangehensweisen für die Lösung der dortigen Probleme, wird den beiden klar, dass ihre Partnerschaft auf dem Spiel steht...

- Ist noch die Verbindung zwischen den Parasiten, die erst- und letztmalig in Star Trek TNG - Conspiracy auftraten und dann eine Art Aliens-Handlungsbogen in der Mission Gamma-Reihe sowie in Unity durchlebten, recht interessant, muss ich jedoch sagen, dass das Beziehungsende zwischen dem guten Doktor und Ezri nicht überraschend kam. Mit den Dax-Wirten hat der Mann einfach kein Glück. Jadzia wird ihm von Worf weggeschnappt, Ezri hinterher auch kurzfristig... es war einfach abzusehen.

Just as good as the first one. 28. Januar 2005
Von G. Marshall - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
In fact, it's probably a wee bit better. When I was reviewing the first volume, I rated the Cardassia story as higher than the Andorian story because of the soap opera feel in that story, and gave that book a 4 star rating. This book is more between a 4 and 4.5 star rating. Before saying anything, i have to give kudos to all of the writers for incorporting the most random episodes from waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay back in the days of DS9 and TNG and parlaying them into important backstories for these new stories, both in this volume and in Unity and others. I'm impressed :) This version also follows the general thread of the first book, where the first story focuses more on the society than the personal characters (Trill and Cardassia) and the second one focuses on the interactions between the society and the characters (Andor and Bajor).

The Trill story is the better of the two by a nose, because it wraps up completely. It focuses on the upheavals on Trill after the events of Unity, the role of Trill in the parasite evolution and the reasons for the parasite's hatred, and it has a very strong ending with very strong repercussions for all Trill, unjoined and joined, as well as for Ezri and Julian. I liked the way the story was written and the implications of what happens to the symbiotes as they grow older (much older). I look forward to the aftermath of these events, and how it affects Trill and the Federation.

The Bajor story is a paradox. It is more interesting than the Trill story (to me) but is a cliff-hanger, and has about 3 or 4 different story threads, only half of which are resolved in this volume. While it plays a bit like the Andor story in the soap opera vein, Jake is a whole lot more sympathetic than Prynn Tenmei is. Call me biased :) The cliffhanger nature of the story reduced the enjoyment for me, 'cause now I have to wait for a while to find out what some of the loose ends were referring to, and it was a bit hard to follow all the threads, even interesting as each of them were. However, what was given was great, and it is a joy to see Capt. Sisko and his lovely baby girl, and family, and Jake and...read it and see. However, I think that this story should have been used as the basis of a novel a la Unity, rather than as a novella in this series.

All in all, I recommend it to all fans of DS9 Relaunch, and I look forward to the Dominion and Ferengrinar stories. What's after those???

Worlds in flux. 6. Februar 2005
Von David Roy - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
So far, the Worlds of Deep Space Nine books have been very good. Volume two, which contains "Unjoined" (about Trill) and "Fragments & Omens" (about Bajor) continues the strong showing from Volume 1. This time, though, both stories are extremely strong. "Unjoined" is by Andy Mangels & Michael A. Martin, while "Fragments & Omens" is by newcomer J. Noah Kym (though that is a pseudonym, so maybe the author isn't that new?). As with Volume 1, one of the stories is fairly quiet while the other one has huge ramifications for the planet involved. Both are excellent, with only the Bajor story leaving me slightly wanting, but in this case that can be a good thing.

Both of these stories are powerful in their own way. "Unjoined" hits you in the gut and keeps doing it as you need to find out what's going on. As the violence escalates, we wonder if there will be a Trill society left for Dax to save. There's also a great deal of tension between Bashir and Ezri, and the authors handle this very deftly. All throughout the story, I was wondering if the tension was from what was going on around them or if it was internal to them. It was definitely interesting to watch.

Mangels & Martin show us an intriguing look at a world under siege by terrorists, though these terrorists have a point. The government *is* hiding something from them all, part of which has been established way back in the television series, but some other information that's just in the books as well. The story is very dark and downbeat, which is unusual for them. However, dark does not mean bad in this case. When the terrorists do something truly horrifying, I felt my gut clench a little bit. The finale, which is a harbinger for massive change on Trill, leaves any long-term reader of the re-launch (or even a fan of the television series) wondering what will become of this world.

The entire story is gripping, with the only real fault being that the sequence where Dax is trying to find the answers to what happened in ancient Trill history drags on a little too long (despite being interrupted by other, more interesting scenes). It's nothing major, but I do wish that Mangels & Martin had avoided using the "a character is in an environmental suit, so something has to go wrong with it" cliché. They do make good use of it, however, as in the process of being saved, she encounters the horror of what the terrorists have finally done. The story also starts in the middle of the action and then backtracks. While this can be annoying at times (and is overused in televised Trek), I think it was put to good use here. It draws us into the story and bridges what could have been a slow beginning otherwise. This story is definitely a keeper.

"Fragments & Omens" has a lot of pluses and minuses, mostly pluses. It sets up a large part of what is probably going to follow in the next sequence of books, with Ben Sisko warning about the coming of the Ascendents (a race of beings that even the Founders may fear). The tone of the story alternates between dark foreboding (Sisko's warning, not to mention the destruction of the village) and somewhat lighter fare (Jake's story). Kym handles this change in tone very deftly, however, never leaving the reader reeling.

Jake's story is very sweet, and told from the point of view of Rena, a woman that he meets in a Bajoran village. The romance is quite sweet, but the story does even more by giving us a layman's view of how Bajor is being integrated into the Federation. We see the common person's point of view, the worry about how all of a sudden there is no money, whether the Federation will rob Bajor of its core values and what life will be like within rather than as an outsider. There is nervousness there, understandable given the massive change that is coming.

What I found the most interesting part of the story, however, was the interaction between Ro and Cenn, a Bajoran major who is very leery of the Federation and what it represents. Thousands of Bajoran militia members are leaving to join Starfleet now that the opportunity is there, and he feels that Bajor may lose a lot of its uniqueness. He also doesn't like what Ro did, abandoning Bajor to the Cardassians to join Starfleet. The tension between them is very nicely done, and I see great things ahead for the Cenn character.

One major annoyance with this story, however, is that the story feels unfinished. The first three stories, while leaving vast changes in the worlds' societies that will have to be dealt with, actually finished the story they were telling. They just left a lot of room for the story to go afterward. This story seems entirely setup with no resolution (except Jake). The village destruction is left dangling (we don't even find out who the villain is in this piece, though we're given a very big clue), Sisko's story is made up entirely of "Omens" (though it was nice to see him trying to settle in on Bajor), and we are introduced to Cenn and what his status will be on the station, but without anything actually happening with it. I realize that this was intentional, as the relaunch stories have always been "continuing," and that this story is intended to be the launching pad for the next series of stories, but this story left too much hanging in my opinion. When you only resolve one of the four plots that you've introduced, it gets annoying. Still, that's no reason not to read the story. While it's mostly setup, it's *good* setup. It will hold your interest and keep you coming back for more.

Fascinating! 11. Februar 2005
Von Dllmzca - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
The Deep Space Nine Relaunch has done a wonderful job in providing readers with a rich, detailed, and intriguing continuation of the television series: Volume Two of the Worlds of Deep Space Nine is another very strong showing.

The storylines continue and advance what has come in the previous novels and allows the reader a closer look into the societies of two worlds closely associated with Deep Space Nine: Trill and Bajor.

"Unjoined," penned by Andy Mangels and Michael A. Martin, shows us a Trill in chaos and takes Dax on a journey to discover Trill's murky and hidden past in order to save its present and shape its future. The other characters involved in the story are equally interesting and will provide some of you with at least one welcome return. I was engrossed by this tale and found that I had to read it in one sitting. I applaud Mangels and Martin for providing us with a clever and fascinating look into Trill society; which has a real sense of cohesion with what little we've seen before regarding the planet and its people.

"Fragments and Omens," penned by J. Noah Kym, deals with Bajor and the its' recent entry into the Federation. With the use of several storylines and characters, it gives us a sense of the ramifications of that entry in both a personal and political sense. Again, this story is solidly written and will, literally, leave with reader anxious for more.

As with the latter seasons of the series, the reader would be well advised to read the Relaunch novels in order rather than trying to jump in with this novel. Doing so will allow you a full appreciation of how well these authors have woven their tales into the ongoing tapestry of the Relaunch, as well as not leaving you scratching your head over details in these tales that are clearly results of events in other stories.

Another solid chapter in the DS9 saga 23. März 2005
Von Kevin G. Summers - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I had not expected to like the story set on Trill, being that I've developed nothing but distain for Ezri and Julian during the past few books, but I found Julian to be incredibly sympathetic during this tale, and while Ezri was still annoying, the scene were she descended into the depths of the symbiot pools was fascinating. The movement on the Julian/Ezri relationship was, I think, a long time coming, but it still hit me like a shot in the guts. I'm looking forward to see where this storyline goes. This story (and most of the relaunch for that matter) has done a nice job on taking one of the lamest TNG episodes and making something interesting and entertaining out of it.

The Bajor story was probably my favorite so far in the mini-series. The continuation of Jake's story stood out as a high point, though I would have liked to have seen a longer courtship with his new love interest. Again, I find it interesting that these stories are going back to some of the older (and in some cases hokier) episodes and adding depth and meaning to those stories. I also LOVED the references to my story, Ha'mara.

All in all, this book was pretty solid. I can't wait to see where all this is going.

I enjoyed both stories 8. April 2005
Von R. Spottiswood - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
The Trill story is fantastic, although it does not start out that way. It begins with a now typical Trek story: the people of Trill are frightened, and thus angry at their government, which happens to be habitually secretive, and the extremists are turning to violence. The characterisations are good, although they seem a little lacking in depth. The descriptions are very good, although sometimes they get a bit wordy and excessive. Do they need to describe everything, even once-off things that don't impact the story? What the characters do, and their commentary on why, is very clearly written and done well. The authors have a neat trick of switching to minor characters to describe what Bashir or Dax is doing, and why, which also works very well.

I found the story to be good but not particularly exciting or unique, up to the middle where one of the characters informs Dax that she's going where no one has gone before ... on her own home planet. After that, it's incredible. It has everything: a society on the verge of total chaos, desperate combat scenes, heroic medical drama, and moral debates. Most impressive of all was the voyage of discovery made by Dax. I enjoyed this story tremendously.

The Bajor story is a love story, along with catching us up on the lives of everyone not in another Worlds story, and events on Bajor generally. The characterisations are excellent, as they need to be since they are the core of the story. The descriptions are vivid instead of specific; we are told what we need to see rather than everything (in some contrast to the first story). That worked well. The event scenes (only some qualify as `action' scenes) are clear and well written. The story starts off very low key and took some time to get going. However, the plotting of the romance was good, if perhaps with a rushed ending, and worked in well with the other parts of the story. The one major complaint I have is that the epilogue was full of vague `A Big Threat is Coming' ruminations. There is enough of a transition feel to this story that waving the fact in our faces was quite unnecessary. This story did not impress me as much as the first did, but I enjoyed it quite a lot as well.
