I Enjoyed It Some Answeredenjoyed it Some answered had never been addressed Others gave insight into characters Little disappointed in the last chapter I think Stitch in Time set the bar high and anything Close to the Land: The Way We Lived in North Carolina, 1820-1870 revisiting that couldn t measure up An excellent collection of Star Trek DS9 short stories Most of the material in this Deep Space Nine tenth anniversary collection is pretty typical Pocket Books Star Trek fictionThat being said the last two stories are well worth talking about Una McCormack who later wrote the brilliant Never Ending Sacrifice writes the first one which tackles a few key characters from one of the closing moments of the series as they attempt to grapple with the drastically changed fortunes of their lives that s theunning theme of the whole collection but it s only McCormack and the author who follows her who truly nail it Kira Nerys the fiery Bajoran first officer who spent most of her time serving under Benjamin Sisko has Berlayar di Pamor Badik returned to heroots as a L. Munatius Plancus resistance fighter only instead of defending her own people she s now fighting for Cardassians the very people who once oppressed the Bajorans before the start of the series She has with her Damar the leader of this newesistance and Garak the most intriguing character to come out of DS9 both Münchhausen's Pigtail, or Psychotherapy Reality representative of a Cardassia that for them no longer exists which is why theye fighting for something new attempting to shrug off the iron grip of the Dominion Kira has every eason to distrust Damar and well Garak is Garak Anyway it s McCormack s very first professional work of fiction Even if she s not at the top of her powers yet she s still better than anyone else in the collectionThe last story belongs to Andrew Robinson the actor who portrayed Garak in the series He d previously eleased the acclaimed novel A Stitch in Time a further exploration of the character as well as a play This is to date his last mark on Garak and it shows because Robinson becomes fairly existentially expansive If anyone else had written the story it would have The Pink Pearl rung as hollow as the majority of the material in the collection And yet he has such a command a grasp of things that you accept whatever twists come along even at their wildestIt s ironic that the collection ends up being so kind to Cardassians when the series itself sometimes seemed to go out of its way to ensure the audience had as low an opinion of them as the Bajorans did But in literature in truly exceptional literature that s how it goes isn t it strong collection of short stories set throughout tv canon chronology most of them while entertaining toead did not eally add anything to the series or character development not already in the show felt like an afterthought that s trying too hard to be importantrelevant but the last several were fantastic took full advantage of th. Love and Hate Faith and Doubt Guilt and Innocence Peace and War Few television series have embraced this symphony of contradictions on the epic scale of Star Trek Deep Space Nine From the vastness of space to the darkest depths of the soul from the clash of empires to the struggles of conscience from the crossroads of a galaxy to the convergence of hearts that seven year journey was both universal and personal challenging its audience with storie. S which was interesting I The Violinist and The Son of Redhead: Two Plays by Leonard Melfi really liked how neatly it fit in between episodes picking upight where a scene left off and leaving oom for the next scene to start Smart writing with a great knock on the door of the moral ambiguity DS9 was so good at presenting and again much painful if you know Jadzia s fateFoundlings throws Odo against his Cardassian predecessor as Cardassia tries to figure out how to exist under the Dominion It is heartbreaking and makes me hate the Dominion that much so a very effective storyChiaroscuro gives some connection for Ezri to the Dax legacy in
A MIND BENDING KIND OF WAYmind bending kind of way would love to see this staged because I think it would be beautiful in an end of 2001 A Space Odyssey kind of way Makes me glad I have The Lives of Dax on the way to ead and compareFace Value looks at Kira s time with Garak and Dukat on Cardassia building the Galaxies in the Universe: An Introduction resistance and I am all kinds of here for the wonderful characterizations of that trio and how each of them is fighting a thousand internal battles Again again much painful when you know the fate of most of the people mentionedThe Calling was written by Andy Robinson who played Garak and is masterful at it and I think I missed a lot because I haven tead his A Stitch in Time I did Dying to Be Ill: True Stories of Medical Deception read the play he and Alexander SiddigBashir wrote together though which you canead at Edosian Orchids This was trippy AF and now I want to track down Stitch in Time so much and I am so sad that Garak s beloved Cardassia is falling apart so hard and I want to know what happens next Write Andy I always love new insights into the DS9 universe And while this anthology featured some of my favourite characters some of the stories came off a little weak Una McCormack s story was definitely the best one of the bunch and mostly saved the Octavio's Journey rest of the book Fun for any DS9 lover but certainly not the mustead I was hoping for These are my personal notes not a eview Sorry the private notes box is too small 1 Story about Sisko Kira getting to know each other a bit on Bajor *and Kai Opaka set after the first ep 45 nice ead2 Kai Winn tries to eturn an Orb from Cardassia *Kai Opaka set after the first ep 45 nice ead2 Kai Winn tries to eturn an Orb from Cardassia Bajor Many chars most interestingly showing Nog s evolution from typical Ferengi to thinking about joining Starfleet 3553 Jadzia conspires to make Bashir O Brien make up after a canon fight Brief Garak 3554 Grilka comes to uark again for aid Mostly uark love story 35 not bad just not eally my cup of tea5 Jake on DS9 under Dominion control writing things makes friends with Ziyal but then Ziyal dies and he s sad 35 not bad just not Organizing Power really my cup of tea6 Jadzia wrestles with death and the ethics of using biogenic weapons on the Jem Hadar I found it noteally in character And the ending was just jarring 257 Odo works with Thrax to investigate an incident that turns out not to be what it seems Decent mystery story and characterization 458 Ezri Dax has to save the world or something I didn t care for it too overblown and grand 259 Una McCormack Kira Damar and Garak hide out in Mila s basement on Cardassia Ziyal s death and prejudices hang between them like a suffocating cloud but they try to work through it Excellent 45510 Andrew J Robinson A continuation of Garak s story after ASIT and the Dream Box sort of hinting towards what happened in the latter Philosophical as ever ties up a few ends but pulls out new threads to follow 455 love it.
