Kurzbeschreibung

An original novel set in the universe of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine—a direct sequel to the New York Times bestselling story arc, The Fall!

The entire sector is waiting to see what the newly reopened Bajoran wormhole will mean for the shifting political landscape in the Alpha Quadrant. On Deep Space 9, Captain Ro Laren is suddenly drawn into the affairs of the People of the Open Sky, who have come to the station in search of sanctuary. Despite the opposition of the station's security officer, Jefferson Blackmer, Ro Laren and Deep Space 9's new CMO, Doctor Beverly Crusher, offer the People aid. But when Dr. Crusher’s highly secure files are accessed without permission—the same files that hold the secrets of the Shedai, a race whose powerful but half-understood scientific secrets solved the Andorian catastrophe—the People seem the likeliest suspects.

As tensions rise on the station, the science vessel Athene Donald arrives as part of its journey of exploration. The brainchild of Doctor Katherine Pulaski, this ship is crewed by different species from the Khitomer Accords and the Typhon Pact. Pulaski’s hope is that science will do what diplomacy has not: help the great powers put aside their hostilities and work together. But when the Athene Donald is summarily stopped in her voyage by the powerful vessel of a hitherto unknown species, Pulaski begins to wonder—will this first contact bring her crew together or tear them all apart?

2.0 von 5 Sternen A predictable alien of the week story starring a cast of TNG characters. 25. März 2015
Von Richard - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
"Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: The Missing" is set in the year 2385, around ten years after the end of the Deep Space Nine TV series (and six years after the movie Star Trek: Nemesis). Despite being titled Deep Space Nine, most of the characters involved in this story are actually better known for their roles in the "Star Trek: The Next Generation" TV series. This book makes references to events in past books, primarily "Star Trek: Typhon Pact: Brinksmanship", but those past books aren't required to follow this story.

The book features three plotlines, starting with first contact with a group calling themselves the People of the Open Sky aboard the space station Deep Space Nine. This plotline focuses on Doctor Beverly Crusher (the Enterprises doctor in Star Trek: The Next Generation) as she works to solve a burglary and murder mystery involving a group of space nomads. For those who haven't been following the Star Trek books, Doctor Crusher was temporarily reassigned as Deep Space Nine's chief medical officer during the book "Star Trek: The Fall: Peaceable Kingdoms". This storyline to its credit tries to show Doctor Crusher's attempts to avoid racial stereotyping of the nomadic group, but the effort falls flat as it makes Doctor Crusher look unprofessional and stubborn instead.

The second plotline focuses on first contact with a civilization calling itself the Chain by a new civilian research ship the Athene Donald. This story stars Doctor Katherine Pulaski (the Enterprises doctor from season 2 of TNG) and a returning role for the character Peter Alden (a member of Starfleet Intelligence) who appeared in the book "Star Trek: Typhon Pact: Brinksmanship". This story focuses on the sudden appearance of a large power warship and the demands of its crew to turn over the People of the Open Sky. This plotline provides most of the books tension as the Athene Donald is effectively taken hostage and must find a way to appease their attackers without abandoning the Federation's principles.

This plotline however suffered from a case of Star Trek's classic disgust with people who aren't practitioners of the Arts or Sciences. Peter Alden as a member of Starfleet Intelligence is met with immediate scorn and distrust by Doctor Pulaski and the rest of the Athene Donald's crew. Right from the start he is treated as a pariah to be mocked and insulted rather than a peer to be given the benefit of the doubt. The whole thing comes off as incredibly aristocratic, as if the high and mighty ruling class had suddenly been confronted with having to interact with a lowly peasant. As socially progressive as Star Trek is known for being, it has longed suffered from the elitist view that there should be a ruling class comprised solely of scientists and artists.

The final plot is a dispute between the Cardassians and Romulans over POWs from the Dominion War. This storyline is set on Deep Space Nine and focuses on Ro Laren (another character from TNG) and Odo, as they try to find out why the Romulans have refused to even discuss releasing a dozen prisoners who have been held since the end of the Dominion War. This storyline seems to be largely filler intended to pad the length of the book. It doesn't really contribute anything to the events in question and is very predictable, repeating a scenario that has already played out twice before in the TV shows.

Overall the book has a confused sense of identity, borrowing heavily from past works and relying far to heavily on non-DS9 characters. Sadly most of this isn't the fault of the author Una McCormack, but is instead the post TV-era status quo that was inherited from previous works. Many of the TV shows cast of characters have moved on with their lives and even the classic station itself was replaced in the aftermath of the "Star Trek: The Fall" miniseries. There just isn't really much left to hold the Deep Space Nine title together anymore.

As for the book as a whole, it just isn't that compelling. It is a generic alien of the week storyline that is a tad to predictable and doesn't really fit with the Deep Space Nine brand.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Nothing missing about it. 2. Januar 2015
Von Esquiline - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I liked this novel but didn't love it as much I have some of the other winter/Fall 2014 books like Disavowed. It just felt incomplete, maybe because I'm so used to reading the various series' that have come out like the Fall, Voyager in the DQ, etc. Ms. McCormack has a real gift for dialogue as I could definitely hear the characters through the book. She uses their voices like the actors did all those years ago on TV and that is something special. I didn't think I would like Pulaski but the author fleshes her out and gives us greater understanding from only being Dr. Crusher's replacement in season 2 of TNG. Odo, Quark, Garak, and Ro were absolutely perfect in every scene. Nice to see Odo given a greater role in a novel than just guest star from the Gamma Quadrant.

My only real (minor) irritation is that we have no idea where this goes next and that's the great thing about Trek lit..
4.0 von 5 Sternen Stellar characters elevate this otherwise meh TNG retred. *SPOILER FREE REVIEW* 8. Dezember 2016
Von Ultraaman - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
If you are a veteran of TNG, then you will immediately recognize two of the four main plots running through this novel. In fact, one of them is actually referenced in the story. The other two are interrelated, involving two different Tzenkethi (I think the singular and plural form are the same). If that was all I was judging this book on then I would have given it 3 stars.

Except it is the characterizations of our old friends here that really shine. McCormick once again deftly weaves dialog and motivation that brings some of our favorites back to life: Odo, Quark, Ro Laren, Doctor Crusher, Garrick, and in quite a nice surprise - Dr. Polaski. It is a credit to the writer when I can hear these characters speak in my head as I am reading their words. Even the new and one-off characters have unique voice, which is a criticism I have levied at some of the other Trek books for lacking.

This book does not leave much lasting impression on the overall Alpha Quadrant story but by its close it is an enjoyable one.
3.0 von 5 Sternen The Missing is Missing Too Much! 10. Mai 2015
Von P. McCoy - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I'm behind in my reading of various Star Trek novels, including the Typhon Pact, which seems to lead up to this story, "The Missing". The station at Deep Space Nine has been rebuilt, Captain Ro Laren is in command, Quark is STILL there running his bar, (he can't pass up an opportunity), Miles O'Brien is back and Odo has returned from The Great Link. I'm curious about what has happened to Colonel Kira, Captain Sisko and/or his family. Come to think of it, I didn't see any mention of our favorite barfly, Morn!

There's also a bit of a crossover with Next Gen, with Doctor Beverly Crusher, Doctor Katherine Pulaski, and a brief mention of Captain Jean-Luc Picard. I need to track down all of the previous novels that lead up to this storyline to get a better context because it feels as if this book is in the middle of a plot with missing pieces, (no pun intended), so I can read up on Corazame's backstory and why Peter Alden's character is the way he is. The more I read this particular book, the more I kept asking myself what happened that led up to this situation given the references to various backstories? At one time, the Trek paperbacks listed other book titles in the back, which would help, but that isn't done anymore so I have no idea which novel I need to find to fill in the gaps.

5.0 von 5 Sternen I really liked this one 28. Februar 2015
Von Susan Elizabeth Ryan - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I really liked this one, a surprise. Wonderful character development of Dr. Pulaski who replaced Dr. Crusher in the second season of STTNG.
She created a friendly inter-ship conflict then, and her reputation (after her assistance to Dr. Bashir's off-the-reservatin mission) seems to precede her as this novel opens. Well, she's older and older characters often become crustier, as older people do. But I loved the resonance achieved through building on earlier histories and the resolution of the paradox of the two STTNG doctors. Here, Dr. Crusher evolves. Very enjoyable novel centered on key female Trek characters.
