So, I essentially have a problem with the entire set-up of the book--with the society, and with how the crew is acting to solve the problem. It's entertaining, but I've basically had to turn my brain off and just read for fun. I'm hoping the next two books focus more on Kai Winn, Kira, and the station and less on this planet.
Jul 27, Dianah rated it did not like it Shelves: star-trek , books. This was awful, just The characters are all off, the story is ridiculous, and there doesn't seem to be any attempt to keep the book in canon with the series. Yes, even though the Cardassians had forced the Bajoran religion underground by making it illegal, Winn is repeatedly referred to as "sister" and "priestess". Going forward to roughly season 5, Kai Winn is head of the Bajoran government. No, Kai Winn was head of the religious, and very powerful, division of Bajoran society, but she was not the boss of the First Minister.
The Federation would certainly never leave Deep Space Nine in her care. This takes place after the threat of the Dominion was well established and the Starfleet presence protecting the wormhole was more important than ever. As if that weren't bad enough, the entire Federation crew plus Odo and, inexplicably, Quark have left in the Defiant and gone to teach a non-spacefaring race to fight the Cardassians.
Believe me, that is as bad as it sounds. Then something amazing happened. While I was wondering how I would make it through this tedious, boring tome about a tribe who worships "new tech", the tech gods smiled on me and smote the book. I think it's quite telling at how bad this book had been up to that point that I don't feel cheated in the least. In fact, I'm going to take it as a sign and, despite my previous decision to faithfully read each book in the series, skip the next two books in the Rebels Trilogy. Aug 07, Brian rated it it was ok. For some reason, the inhabitants of the planet, where the vast majority of the book takes place, are bizarre and distracting from the overall seriousness of the story.
The bizarre nature of the natives, for some reason, changes the overall feel of the book. Odo is keen to using weapons which he refused on the TV show , Worf is a clumsy idiot that basically contributes nothing to the party, and O'Brien complains non-stop. I just had problems with some of the characterization on the planet-side part of the story. Hugh's writing style is interesting and creative, but some readers might be annoyed with his frequent interjections, or find it a somewhat of a taxing read for a Star Trek book. While there are other Star Trek books that I basically read cover to cover, this one I tended to linger on, not wanting to read more than a few pages at a time.
Hopefully, the other 2 books hold my interest a bit more. It was not a bad book by any means, but I can't say it was a very good one either. Feb 21, Paul rated it it was ok Shelves: star-trek. Kai Winn is in command, and her past is revealed through a series of flashbacks to the Occupation and her actions to help the resistance. Worf, Sisko, O'Brien, Quark and Odo are stranded on a planet where all the citizens have advanced technology that has reduced them to a complete dependency relationship.click here
Ds9 #26 Rebels Book Three
Renegade Cardassians have invaded the planet and have no trouble picking off the inhabitants -- all they have to do is cut the power to the technology. Dax and Bashir are also on the planet in a different environment. Major Kira's character is barely fleshed out, and mostly appears as a caricature of the real character on the series. None of the four stranded characters are worth reading about here, and are pale imitations of the real characters on the series. I am not personal friends with the author, nor do I follow him on social media. This is a hit and miss book, I'm not sure when it is based.
Bajor takes over the station for a trial of 60 days with Kai Winn in charge. Meanwhile the Defiant crew try to help a planet invaded by Cardassians. The planet is the fun bit, its slightly slapstick and did make me laugh out loud on occasion. The problem is the Kai Winn backstory that seems really odd when Cardassians had outlawed the religion. A good read, for the planet story only. Apr 03, John Wilson rated it did not like it Shelves: we-come-in-peace-shoot-to-kill. The Millennium trilogy was probably the only good example.
The "Rebels" trilogy was the absolute nadir. Just plain awful. Jul 22, Jerry rated it liked it. An okay start Apr 04, The Encyclopedia rated it it was amazing. Great complete 5 star for anyone trying to start star trek! Jun 03, Denise rated it it was ok Shelves: read Kai Winn takes command of the station for a 60 day trial period, much to Kira's displeasure, while the rest of DS9's Starfleet command crew head off on the Defiant to check out a planet being invaded by the Cardassians and attempt to help the weird and rather annoying natives repel them.
Much of the book concentrates on this second storyline. Neither of the plotlines managed to awaken my interest and the characters are little more than cardboard cutouts - this author can definitely do better.
