Overview

Cardassia Prime is home to a prideful people who, for centuries, forged alliances with those they believed would strengthen them and their place in the Alpha Quadrant, and expanded their empire at great cost to other worlds. For generations, dissenting voices were silenced by either fear or an early grave.

Overview

Cardassia Prime is home to a prideful people who, for centuries, forged alliances with those they believed would strengthen them and their place in the Alpha Quadrant, and expanded their empire at great cost to other worlds. For generations, dissenting voices were silenced by either fear or an early grave. When their wartime ally, the Dominion, suddenly turned on them, seeking to transform Cardassia into a tomb for every last member of their race, their old adversary—the United Federation of Planets— put an end to the carnage, and even now works to help rebuild Cardassia Prime.

To celebrate this alliance, the Castellan of the Cardassian Union is to welcome the Federation president to Cardassia Prime. As a symbol of this deepening friendship, the U.S.S. Enterprise-E is tasked to carry the Cardassian ambassador to the Federation back home. For his part, Ambassador Elim Garak is working with Captain Jean-Luc Picard to oversee the diplomatic reception that will commemorate the last of Starfleet’s personnel finally leaving the homeworld. However, there are malevolent forces at work, who even now strive to “restore Cardassia to its proper place and glory,” and are willing to do anything to achieve their goal....

    This book was a bit slow, but somewhat interesting. The characters did not fit as well into the Star Trek world, but I read the entire book.

    Good Trek

    Una McCormack is one of the best, if not the best, of the second generation of Star Trek writers. So it's no surprise that The Crimson Shadow, a story with a strong focus on Garak, is a solid, interesting, well-written read--something that, these days, is all too rare in the Star Trek universe.

    It's more about Cardassia and Less about Enterprise

    While the Enterprise is in orbit of the planet the main action takes place on Cardassia. Some Enterprise crew members are involved, but the Enterprise itself doesn't really do anything. This is your basic murder/mystery in the Star Trek universe that Cardassian Capital police and Enterprise crew members need to solve to keep Cardassia from Civil War. The ending is pretty good and it wasn't quite as obvious as I thought it would be. Can't really say much more without telling what happens. What I have really liked about all the "Star Trek: The Fall" series books so far is the significance of the events that happen to and around the characters.

    Pitiful

    I have read so many Startrek novels, this one was so boring. It read more like a bad mystery than sci-fi.
    Don't bother spending your time or money on this book!

    Regent Dukat

    I was shocked when a prominent charactor died. But these series of books and others before have been killing off charactors after slowly introducing them and telling thier story over several books.

    It brings these charactors and books down to earth as they are showing they cannont live forever.

    This book, like the one before, is slow going and tells the Cardassian story and where they set in the universe.
