DS9 begins 8th season in novel form 3 août 2001
Par Andreas Amsterdam - Publié sur
Format: Poche
In May 2001, Pocket Books published Avatar, a Star Trek: Deep Space Nine novel, in two volumes. It's written by S.D. Perry, who has previously contributed two stories to The Lives of Dax and has written the novelizations of Timecop and Virus. Under the name Stella Howard, Ms. Perry has written an original novel based on the series Xena: Warrior Princess.
Avatar begins three months after DS9's finale, "What You Leave Behind," and focuses on Colonel Kira's command of the station. A surprise attack by what's left of the Dominion kills hundreds of Starfleet and Bajoran militia officers as well as civilians. As well, an ancient Bajoran text is discovered that incites religious controversy among the populace - one of its prophecies is that the birth of the son of the Emissary (Kasidy Yates' unborn child) will require the death of 10,000. What that actually means will be revealed at the end of the second volume, but several of the more conservative elements of Bajoran religious hierarchy have their own interpretation of it.
We meet again a former Enterprise officer who becomes the station's new chief of security, and are introduced to three new characters - Commander Tiris Jast, a Bolian senior officer who commands the Defiant; Shar, the reticent Andorian science officer; and Elias Vaughn, a longtime Starfleet officer at a crossroads in his life.
I found both volumes of the novel hard to put down. In the post-TOS era, Deep Space Nine has always been my favorite and I'm glad to see the "8th season" begin with a well-considered blend of action, characterization and thought-provoking issues of religion, culture and society. Pocket Books is taking up the threads of themes begun in Star Trek: The Next Generation and Star Trek: Deep Space Nine quite effectively and I look forward to further adventures in this series.

Star Trek DS-9 Avatar 3 septembre 2001
Par Joe Zika - Publié sur
Format: Poche
A book that is a combination of DS-9 and STNG. We have Colonel Kira Nerys holding down the fort at DS9 after the Dominion War. A Jem'Hadar ship cripples the space station and power is at a minimum after the jetison of part of the core power unit.
We get to read about Kira's thoughts and the others characters are fleshed out in this book. A good sign to the reader. Now, we get to feel the characters as the go about thinking, instead of just the doing.
The peace that was is fragile and is threatened. We have Kassidy Yeates pregnant with Capt. Benjamin Sisko's child, the Avatar, hence the name of the books.
Capt. Jean-Luc Picard makes an interesting discovery... yes but it wouldn't be fair to disclose it here... please read it and enjoy why this discovery will effect the Deep Space 9 and those of the Alpha Quadrant.
A good book for reading and getting character development. Also, this is where we get to know Kira Nerys better.
There is a great chornology of events that happen in linear time at the beginning of the book. Great to keep everyone in perspective perspicaciousness.
Read and enjoy this book as it will be refered to in future writings in this genre.

Necessary for DS9 Relaunch. Really a Buildup for Book 2. 27 janvier 2004
Par The Professor - Publié sur
Format: Poche
I found that much of this book was a buildup for Book 2. Not that that's a bad thing, but it was what I deem a "necessary introduction" for the DS9 Relaunch. The characterization is good, but not as complete or rounded as in the Reeves-Stevenses' Millenium trilogy (a must read!).
The book starts with a recap of important events from pre-DS9 (ie Occupation of Bajor, Orbs) to the finale where Odo, Worf (and Martok), Garak, O'Brien, Rom AND Sisko have all left DS9. I must say at first I wondered how a show (book, whatever) could proceed with a) Kira in charge; b) only Ezri, Bashir, Kira, Jake and Nog and Quark (who is spot on perfect btw) left from the original cast (oh and Yates). But surprisingly it works very well. The main reason for this is the introduction of some new characters. However, I deeply missed the interplays with Worf and especially Garak. And without O'Brien, Bashir is demeaned to the position of the relationship character with Ezri...
The best part about the book I found is the solid character development for the new characters, but also Ezri and to some degree Kira (though she's still arrogant).
Andorian Ensign ch'Thane is probably the most refreshing character. To delve into a new race is great fun, and Book 2 offers a lot more intrigue (and I'm assuming the Gamma books).
Elias Vaughn. This guy rocks, I can't wait to read more about him. This 101 year old Starfleet veteran is going through a change of mindset and his introspection is fascinating.
Lt. Ro Laren. She's there to take over Odo's position (which is funny cuz Kira loves Odo but dislikes Ro). Ro's arrivial bugged me for several reasons. Understand I think it is brilliant to have her on DS9, but she's very poorly introduced. First, the information in the two Avatar books contradicts the Dominion War books and totally discredits all the awesome work she did with Picard during that time.. which WOULD have made sense as to why she was instated on DS9. Instead, some lame excuse about terrorist attacks against Dominion is given, and despite the Federation's (or Starfleet's) qualms about Ro and requests NOT to let her on DS9, Bajor goes against their wishes (which *should* harm their chances at Federation membership but surprise, doesn't) and puts her there anyways, for no real reason. But ignoring that, Ro has always been one of those characters you just love to get more of, and she's her typical rebellious self here, and it's grand!
The Plot is very good. I especially like the idea surrounding the Jem'Hadar soldier. Jake loves his father as much as he did in "The Visitor", yet it seemed obvious to me that from his first reading of the Prophecy that he had probably misinterpretated it. If the author thought she was being sneaky, she was wrong. It was quite clear that Jake was being naive... or was he?
The attack on the station is quite wonderful, and provides the bulk of the action. The murder investigation is nowhere as indepth as that from the Millenium trilogy.
The religious talk is nowhere as deep as that from the Millenium trilogy, but is still interesting. It really picks up more in Book 2 where Ro loses it. It is good to see why Ro opposes the Bajoran faith (which IS well explained).
Also, don't let the cover fool you, this is a DS9 book, not a TNG book. Though Picard is in this book, he and the TNG crew do little, though Book 2 is a different story.
Overall this book is a good read! I definetely had some problems with it, but once I forgave them reading it became quite interesting. I definetely wanted to read Book 2 right after (which I am doing) and am sure it will lead me to read all the Gamma books and subsequent Perry novels. All in all a good start for Season 8 of DS9!

An excellent new beginning for DS9 29 juillet 2001
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur
Format: Poche
I was one of those fans who was devestated that DS9 had to be over. Then when I saw this book, promising a bold new beginning for the series, I was skeptical. But the author, S.D. Perry, really did a good job. He starts with a timeline, laying out the events from the DS9 tv series' 7 years in just a few pages. Surprisingly, he summed it up pretty well. That prepares you for the book itself. It and it's sequel tell the story of the beginning of the future of DS9. It adds Ro Laren, a Next Generation character many fans like, but doesn't forget all the others you'd expect to be there. I won't go into the story itself, but suffice it to say that there are multiple plots, only some of which are resolved. They will be continued in the subsequent books. I highly recommend these two books to any Star Trek fan, let alone a DS9 fan. You won't be disappointed.

After the closing credits of the finale 29 juillet 2008
Par Jeanne Tassotto - Publié sur
Format: Poche
AVATAR picks up the story about three months after the events of the series finale, Rom is now Grand Nagus, Worf and Garak have left the station for the Klingon Empire and Cardassia, Odo has returned to the Great Link, and the O'Briens have returned to Earth, and Sisko has entered the Wormhole to be with the Prophets. On the station everyone is adjusting to the changes, particularly Jake and Kassidy, who is pregnant with Sisko's child.

While working on Bajor Jake is informed of a newly discovered prophecy, one that personally involves him, his father and the soon to be born baby. He also discovers that the prophecy is apparently a dangerous thing to know about, the Bajoran who had discovered it was found murdered on DS9 a few days later.

In addition the Wormhole, which has been firmly closed since Sisko's disappearance has suddenly opened emitting a Jem'Hadar invasion force, and perhaps a messenger from Odo. As if that is not bad enough the station and the Defiant are in the midst of repairs and upgrades, leaving them unprotected. As this first book of the two volume story ends DS9 has sent a message to the Enterprise requesting help.

Enjoyment of this book and it's sequel will be in direct proportion to the reader's interest in the series. Those who still remember the sadness and frustration they felt as the final scenes of the finale played out and then faded on the sight of the slowly spinning station against the backdrop of the stars will not want to miss finding out what happens next.
Those who only caught a few episodes will be much less interested in this story arc.
