Overview

Star Trek: The Fall: Revelation and Dust by David R. George III

Welcome to the new Deep Space 9

WELCOME TO THE NEW DEEP SPACE 9

After the destruction of the original space station by a rogue faction of the Typhon Pact, Miles O’Brien and Nog have led the Starfleet Corps of Engineers in designing and constructing a larger, more advanced starbase in the Bajoran system. Now, as familiar faces such as Benjamin Sisko, Kasidy Yates, Ezri Dax, Odo, and Quark arrive at the new station, Captain Ro Laren will host various heads of state at an impressive dedication ceremony. The dignitaries include not only the leaders of allies—such as Klingon Chancellor Martok, Ferengi Grand Nagus Rom, the Cardassian castellan, and the Bajoran first minister—but also those of rival powers, such as the Romulan praetor and the Gorn imperator. But as Ro’s crew prepares to open DS9 to the entire Bajor Sector and beyond, disaster looms. A faction has already set in action a shocking plan that, if successful, will shake the Alpha and Beta Quadrants to the core.

And what of Kira Nerys, lost aboard a runabout when the Bajoran wormhole collapsed? In the two years that have passed during construction of the new Deep Space 9, there have been no indica­tions that the Celestial Temple, the Prophets, or Kira have sur­vived. But since Ben Sisko once learned that the wormhole aliens exist nonlinearly in time, what does that mean with respect to their fate, or that of the wormhole . . . or of Kira herself?

there is much to like about it. I especially enjoy just being able to see Sisko & Kasidy together again. George writes their relationship in a way that seems natural, more so than Bashir and Ezri's or even Bashir and Sarina's interactions. There are some surprises at the end of the book. Kira's storyline is confusing, especially at the end...how is it that one character, whether a vision from the Prophets or someone from Bajor's past, ends up in the present? But I'm sure it will be explained in future books. In fact, it makes me hopeful that we will see some more development with the DS9 crew that doesn't depend so heavily on the Typhon Pact and maybe we'll see the continuation of the Ascendents storyline that was unfortunately cut short due to the decision to fast-forward DS9 books to keep pace with the rest of the TNG era. Don't get me wrong, I did enjoy Plagues of Night and (especially) Raise the Dawn, and look forward to the other books in this miniseries, but I do miss the style and intrigue of DS9 pre-Destiny trilogy when new revelations were more DS9-centric (i.e. Iliana Ghemor, Mirror Universe, Kira and Sisko reaching new understandings of their relationships with the Prophets,etc). Still, I've seen a couple reviews on Amazon that gave this book only three stars and while I agree that parts of the book are a bit slow and lacking the excitement of Raise the Dawn, I still feel the book deserves better than three stars. If nothing else, seeing a little bit more normalcy and camaraderie between the crew is a welcome change of pace than the constant doom & gloom we've been seeing for some time, not to mention necessary if you want to keep the characters more real and the story more down-to-earth. If you haven't already bought the book and are on the fence on whether to read it or not, I say read it. It's a fine book, with more emphasis on character development. It does pave the way for more to follow, but just be aware this is not the Earth shattering novel it's been hyped up to be. Once you realize that, accept it and enjoy it for what it is.

I like the story and it made me feel like a was watching my favorite episodes from the Deep Space Nine TV series. After reading this book there were several cliffhangers at the end and without knowing more make no sense of why they stopped where they did. Hopefully, they will cover that in future novels in "The Fall" series. According to the website there are at least 2 more. The descriptions of the next 2 books on the website make no mention of how the next novel relates to the previous novel in the series. The suspense is killing me.

There couldn't be a greater contrast between Revelation and Dust and its fast-paced, well-written successor The Crimson Shadow. If you make it through this plodding, "and then the next thing that happened was that"-heavy tome, congratulations. You have more endurance than the average Klingon warrior. This one is dead weight on the shelf. Skip it.

I'm always happy to add another Trek novel to my library - and this is no exception. My only problem is realizing the stuff I need to go back and read in some of the related novels I've skipped over!

The book setup what is sure to be some great stories both in this arc and future books. The one thing I agree with some other reviews is that parts of the book were slow and did not seem make sense until the end.

Well, since my original view didn't appear to have copied right before the browser froze on submit I guess I'll try this again. Potential Spoiler Alert: MAYBE.. I found the DS9 part of this novel to be very well written. That is, the events portraying the dedication of the NEW DS9 station. I was engaged, and saddened, by the story because of what happened to one of my favorite characters from the novels. That being said, the parts with Kira and her companion really dragged the book down for me. The fact that the chapters alternate between events on DS9 and what happened to Kira in the wormhole after the original DS9 was destroyed drove me crazy, because I had to force myself to read the Kira portions. At least at first, I began skimming the ones in the middle and half-read the ones toward the end when those events seemed to pick up a bit. Even after picking up they still didn't really hold my attention. Honestly, if the portions with Kira were removed in their entirity it wouldn't affect the story in the least; unless the event in the very last paragraphs of the epilogue is important in some later book. Even then, the parts with Kira still left me eager to get back to the DS9 chapters because they just didn't interest me. If you're a Kira fan I'm sure you'll like them. Maybe. I don't dislike Kira, but those chapters sure didn't make me WANT to like her either. They're the only reason I rated this book at three stars instead of five. That being said, BUY IT; the DS9 dedication half (and it is pretty much have since the chapters swap rather evenly) of this book is totally worth reading.
