{Free kindle} BetrayalAuthor Lois Tilton – Albawater.co

The characters act like themselves for the most part, and there s no real hammering of specific quirks of characters The first time in the DS9 book series that a book actually feels like part of the series.Instead the story focuses on the behaviors of external characters where their fate can actually be unknown through to the end, yet at the same time delves into the main characters pasts and current thoughts.It s almost exactly how one of these non canon books should be, in order to actuall The characters act like themselves for the most part, and there s no real hammering of specific quirks of characters The first time in the DS9 book series that a book actually feels like part of the series.Instead the story focuses on the behaviors of external characters where their fate can actually be unknown through to the end, yet at the same time delves into the main characters pasts and current thoughts.It s almost exactly how one of these non canon books should be, in order to actually feel like it could be canon without doing any harm to the actual canon.Jake was probably the weakest part of the plot and story, though he s still very young here this story takes place between seasons 1 and 2 according to a note in the book and he doesn t really develop into his own for another couple seasons.But it s not enough to distract from this actually being an interesting story Really good storyline set in the very early seasons Loved the little parts with Jake and Nog and I was really rooting for the deserter The only thing wrong with the kindle version is there are quite a few spelling mistakes which I reported But the story was fast paced and not too much tech jargon.

Definitely the best written of the ds9 books so far I loved the story I had a great time reading this book.v Its a serviceable story, but the real interest is that these early DS9 novels were based on early drafts of the series concepts so you get to see what DS9 could ve been like if production had took a different turn. This was good enough that I was tempted to give it 4 stars Well done to the author. Another murder for Odo to solve8 April 2012 Seriously, what is it about Deep Space Nine novels and Odo going off to catch a murderer We are at the sixth Deep Space Nine book and so far each and every one of them has a murderer loose in the station and Odo out to catch him Fortunately this is not the case in the television series in fact I am up to episode 12 of the first season, and yes there have been murderers, but not every episode, and not with Odo investigating every one in fact the one Another murder for Odo to solve8 April 2012 Seriously, what is it about Deep Space Nine novels and Odo going off to catch a murderer We are at the sixth Deep Space Nine book and so far each and every one of them has a murderer loose in the station and Odo out to catch him Fortunately this is not the case in the television series in fact I am up to episode 12 of the first season, and yes there have been murderers, but not every episode, and not with Odo investigating every one in fact the one episode about a murderer has Odo excluded on the grounds that they believe that he is the culprit Anyway, I do find the show interesting to watch, particularly since they bring the Ferengi to the forefront and we learnabout their culture and society In a way we question whether such a society can exist, let alone reach the stars, particularly since it is all about wheeling and dealing and getting ahead of the pack One wonders how such a race could survive and succeed, as well as bringing about order to enable the construction of a starship The only thing I can think of is that the Ferengi know about capital and also know about labour I suspect and it is not evident in the series that the Ferengi are probably a slave owing society that also has a feudal structure about it as well I guess Star Trek does not really go too deep into somantics here Okay, I have written a lot about the unrealism of the Federation, and in a way it does not stop there For instance in one of the movies, First Contact, we have the Federation developing the warpdrive and thus bringing the Vulcans to Earth to see if they are ready to join the Federation It is suggested that planets are only allowed to have FTL faster than light travel if they are mature enough to traverse space However that turns out not to be the case, especially when we consider the traditional bad races such as the Klingons and the Romulans, or even some of the newer races such as the Cardassians and the Ferengi One of the interesting things that I have noticed watching the series recently is the uncanny prescience with regards to computer technology As I sit here playing with my smartphone I don t own a tablet, and do not see the need to own one I notice that this series, and even the earlier series, uses computers that are uncannily similar They all have their little pads with touch screens, and all of the computers on the station use touch screens as well These days we still have keyboards and mice, but with the development of the smartphone that is changing However, the thing that catches me is that we usually develop the big first and the miniaturise it However the opposite has happened with smartphones, because the tablet came out later, and we still don t have touch screens for out PCs well, we do now, but not when this was written When terrorists threaten a conference of Federation ambassadors, Commander Benjamin Sisko must defuse a deadly situation before the terrorists destroy Deep Space Nine and the entire planet Bajor Deep Space Nine was my favorite of the television Star Trek series, and every once in a while, I like to read one of the DS9 novels that spun off from there This is 6, and is set in the very early timeframe of the show, when the DS9 station is newly under Bajoran and Federation occupation.One of the constraints of spin off novels like this, is that the ending leaves the setting and characters in the same condition as at the beginning That causes the story to be just another episode of the ser Deep Space Nine was my favorite of the television Star Trek series, and every once in a while, I like to read one of the DS9 novels that spun off from there This is 6, and is set in the very early timeframe of the show, when the DS9 station is newly under Bajoran and Federation occupation.One of the constraints of spin off novels like this, is that the ending leaves the setting and characters in the same condition as at the beginning That causes the story to be just another episode of the series, albeit a somewhat longer one I was enjoying the story quite well, with characters and events true to that original conception of the DS9 series, when I encountered another of the limitations A starship loses all power and decelerates Ridiculous This event could easily have been written realistically, with no loss to the plot But it just isn t important at this level of writing, so serves as a reminder that I should return my reading attention to real science fiction
