It’s not a pretty picture.
At first this book was a little hard to get into as it doesn’t focus on some of the character we already know…it takes a few chapters till Captain Dax of the Aventine makes her appearance and there is no Riker or Picard.
That said, we are introduced to a new character Professor Sonek Pran who is a very likeable and well written character – and is the cheif protaganist of this story.
We also do get some pull through a few chapters in from the SCE series as well as the Klingon Gorkon series…so it all works out.
As for the plot, the final conclusion – the rise of the Typhon Pact was kinda neat but how all the little pieces of the conspiracy fit together from Zalda all the way up — seems like a bit of a stretch to us.
One Ferengi was able to negotiate and trigger so much trouble across the Federation? Wouldn’t more than one ship of refugees come to Zalda?
Still, plot cohesion issues aside, this book is highly entertaining and a must read for those that love Star Trek Destiny.
