Solid novelization of a good episode,
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Way of the Warrior (Star Trek Deep Space Nine (Unnumbered Paperback)) (Taschenbuch)
This book faces the same problems as so many others like it...it tries to stretch a 90 minute television show to fill 275 pages of text. Diane Carey, DS9's resident TV-book adapter, was called in once again to work on Way of the Warrior, with mixed results. While she can competently flesh out the dialogue portions of a script, often the conversations, having been designed for a TV audience, aren't very exciting. This episode required a lot of visual aids to work, and the book can't really provide. None of the characters are satisfactorily represented, instead, the obvious is simply stretched out with details to fill the pages. Granted, there are a few scenes thrown into the book that didn't make the episode, but they aren't really necessary and seemed kind of boring. And when we got to the highlight of Way of the Warrior, where all of DS9's new weapon's systems are revealed, the book really skimps out and spends all of about 3 pages describing the grand battle. This book is about as good as can be expected, but it doesn't really stand up to the standards set even by other, original, Star Trek novels.
