PRIDE. GREED. ENVY. WRATH. LUST. GLUTTONY. SLOTH.

The Seven Deadly Sins delineate the path to a person’s downfall, the surest way to achieve eternal damnation. But there is a way out, a way to reclaim salvation: blame it on the demons—taunting you, daring you to embrace these sins—and you shall be free. The painful truth is that these impulses live inside all ofus, inside all sentient beings. But alas, one person’s sin may be anotherbeing’s virtue.

The pride of the Romulan Empire is laid bare in "The First Peer," by Dayton Ward and Kevin Dilmore.

A Ferengi is measured by his acquisition of profit. "Reservoir Ferengi," by David A. McIntee, depicts the greed that drives that need.

The Cardassians live in a resource-poor system, surrounded by neighbors whohave much more. The envy at the heart of Cardassian drive is "The Slow Knife,"by James Swallow.

The Klingons have tried since the time of Kahless to harness their wrath withan honor code, but they haven’t done so, as evidenced in "The Unhappy Ones,"by Keith R.A. DeCandido.

Humans’ darkest impulses run free in the Mirror Universe. "Freedom Angst," by Britta Burdett Dennison, illustrates the lust that drives many there.

The Borg’s desire to add to their perfection is gluttonous and deadly in "Revenant," by Marc D. Giller.

To be a Pakled is to live to up to the ideal of sloth in "Work Is Hard," by Greg Cox.

Synopsis:

Ancient writers paired the seven deadly sins with demons, but the sins still control men or here and now, and even the aliens of the universe.

Synopsis:

Love and Hate. Faith and Doubt. Guilt and Innocence. Peace and War. Few television series have embraced this symphony of contradictions on the epic scale of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. From the vastness of space to the darkest depths of the soul, from the clash of empires to the struggles of conscience, from the crossroads of a galaxy to the convergence of hearts — that seven-year journey was both universal and personal, challenging its audience with stories and characters that redefined Star Trek's Human Adventure for all time. PATHWAYS TRAVELED...The widowed father struggling to rebuild his shattered life, reborn as a religious icon to millions of believers. CHALLENGES CONQUERED...The resistance fighter who aided her former oppressors in their struggle for liberation and emerged as the leader she never imagined herself becoming. TRUTHS REVEALED...The orphaned alien whose quest for his own identity became the salvation of a quadrant. Rediscover this extraordinary saga in a landmark collection of tales that confronts assumptions, divulges secrets, and asks as many questions as it answers. These stories, entwined with familiar episodes, reveal the world of Deep Space Nine anew as told by Christopher L. Bennett * Keith R.A. DeCandido * Heather Jarman * Jeffrey Lang * Michael A. Martin and Andy Mangels * Una McCormack * Terri Osborne * Andrew J. Robinson * Kevin G. Summers * Geoffrey Thorne

This is an interesting short story collection, each story centering around a particular Star Trek race and a biblical sin. I enjoyed all the stories, Britta Burdett Dennison's "Freedom Angst" was the only one I really felt was weak, and it was still an interesting idea despite the awkward execution.

My favorite stories were:

"Revenant" by Marc D. Giller, which creates an almost gothic claustrophobic creepiness, well suited to the title and the Borg.

Keith R.A. DeCandido has written a number of very good Klingon tales, and although this one, "The Unhappy Ones", is set in a very different time than his post-DS9 stories, he makes solid use of source material and his own invention to make an entertaining, moving historical-feeling tale.

I've always found the Cardassians a fascinating race, and the political and moral morass of their military is explored in James Swallow's "The Slow Knife."
