RETURN TO THE EDGE OF THE FINAL FRONTIER.

In the aftermath of a war that brought the Alpha Quadrant to the brink of destruction, Starbase Deep Space 9™ — the galaxy's nexus of scientific and military intrigue — is once more the flashpoint of impending Armageddon as a surprise attack cripples the station, killing hundreds and threatening the fragile new peace.

Colonel Kira Nerys and the survivors — together with several controversial new officers — are all who stand against the outbreak of a new war and a terrible doom tied to the unborn child of Captain Benjamin Sisko.

Elsewhere, Captain Jean-Luc Picard and the crew of the Starship Enterprise™ make a startling discovery...one that will affect the destiny of an entire civilization and forever change the lives of those aboard Deep Space 9.

A BOLD NEW BEGINNING FOR ONE OF THE MOST COMPELLING STAR TREK® SAGAS OF ALL.

Synopsis:

A new era begins in the annals of Deep Space Nine in the aftermath of the Dominion War that brought the Star Trek universe to the brink of ruin. Once again the space station, situated on the wormhole that links two quadrants, becomes a flashpoint of impending Armageddon.

This two-book series deals with the aftermath of the end of the Dominion War, and the attempts of many races to get back to "normal", a mission which is threatened by a Dominion attack which violates the peace treaty and risks throwing three quadrants of the universe back into a deadly war. Even worse, Bajor is undergoing religious upheaval, creating a dangerously volatile environment at the mouth of the wormhole and drawing DS9 into this chaos while preventing the crew from being able to focus their full potential to prevent another war.

A quick comment on the format of this mini-series: I can't understand why it was split into two books. They don't center on different aspects or characters and the split just seems odd. If added together, it would be barely 500 pages, hardly a massive tome. I'm not sure what the rational was for publishing two slim books instead of one sturdy title. They both have a May 2001 copyright, so it wasn't an issue of a delay in writing. It just seems like an odd decision. Hence, I've reviewed it as if it was one book.

I've never read other Trek books by Perry, (although I have read sci-fi by her father, Steve Perry) but after reading this I think I'll have to keep an eye out for more. DS9 did a great job being political sci-fi with an adventure veneer, and this book is keeping that tone. Perry also explores religious conflict, sexism, and culture clashes by tactfully and skillfully weaving them into the plot without being preachy or providing instant solutions.

This book is very plot heavy, and those who like character-driven stories may find themselves frustrated.
