Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Within every federation and every empire, behind every hero and every villain, there are the worlds that define them. In the aftermath of Unity and in the daring tradition of Spock's World, The Final Reflection, and A Stitch in Time, the civilizations most closely tied to Star Trek: Deep Space Nine can now be experienced as never before...in tales both sweeping and intimate, reflective and prophetic, eerily familiar and utterly alien.

CARDASSIA: The last world ravaged by the Dominion War is also the last on which Miles O'Brien ever imagined building a life. As he joins in the reconstruction of Cardassia's infrastructure, his wife Keiko spearheads the planet's difficult agricultural renewal. But Cardassia's struggle to remake itself — from the fledgling democracy backed by Elim Garak to the people's rediscovery of their own spiritual past — is not without opposition, as the outside efforts to help rebuild its civilization come under attack by those who reject any alien influence.

ANDOR: On the eve of a great celebration of their ancient past, the unusual and mysterious Andorians, a species with four sexes, must decide just how much they are willing to sacrifice in order to ensure their survival. Biological necessity clashes with personal ethics; cultural obligation vies with love — and Ensign Thirishar ch'Thane returns home to the planet he forswore, to face not only the consequences of his choices, but a clandestine plan to alter the very nature of his kind.

Synopsis:

The wonderfully realized alien civilizations which populate the universe of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine are revealed here through the very personal stories of those who live there.

Synopsis:

The first in an unprecedented three-volume series exploring six astonishing alien civilizations. Readers will discover some of the most important planets tied to "Star Trek: Deep Space Nine," as seen through the eyes of the characters tied to them. Original.

These two stories are each about the length of a quite-long novella or short novel, one being 150 pages and the other 200.

Cardassia: The Lotus Flower is by Una McCormack. The one other Star Trek novel of hers I read was spectacular. The Never-Ending Sacrifice was also set on Cardassia, and I would highly recommend it to any ST fan who enjoys detailed worldbuilding. McCormack focuses on culture, resulting in an immersive story. The Lotus Flower primarily follows the O'Brian's attempts to help Cardassia rebuild after the Dominion War resulted in near-catastrophic destruction. It explores more of the religious, cultural and scientific elements of this people, rather than the TV show's focus on military and political power.

Andor: Paradigm by Heather Jarman was a bit of a surprise. When I think "Andorian" I generally think of the awkward blue-painted, badly-wigged, pipecleaner-antennaed actors of the original show, which was the only time this race was really featured until recently in ST: Enterprise. Including them in a Deep Space Nine collection seemed a bit odd; in fact according to Wikipedia, no Andorian ever appeared on DS9! What I didn't think of when thinking of Andorians was Jarman's chosen sensual portrayal, yet after a bit, I liked it.

She had a bit of a rough start, and her main human character rather got on my nerves, but soon I couldn't put the book down. It's a little soap opera-esq at times, but the opportunities for interpersonal and romantic conflict in a slowly dying race with four genders and tight, rigid familial structures mean that most of it doesn't strain one's ability to accept the drama.
