After James Swallow s content heavy but somehow stiff opening Day of the Vipers, the reign of the Terok Nor trilogy is given to S.D Perry and Britta Dennison The previous installment ended in the

Utilizing a respectable amount of characters, plotlines and themes, Night of the Wolves is a bafflingly full accomplishment And unlike Swallow s previous novel, this one is extremely readable and very much about the characters.This time the focus is on the psychology of the oppressed and the oppressors, reflected in each of the characters deepest feelings and instinctive actions The novel reminded me of such wonderful examinations of the psychology of genocide as Imre Kert sz s Fateless and Michel Tournier s The Ogre Perry Dennison have created a compelling and effective tale with an engaging plot and dynamic characters And I must say I m really glad they were also given the job of penning the next, final part of this series In many ways, this miniseries suffers from some of the same problems that the Star Wars prequel films did it tells a story that does not end well While the trilogy has to end with the liberation of Bajor, we know that there is going to be a lot of suffering before that happens, which is something that can sour a reader on this series However, if one can get past that initial trepidation, Terok Nor is a trilogy with an excellent payoff very well written

get past that initial trepidation, Terok Nor is a trilogy with an excellent payoff very well written books telling an enthralling story about some of my favorite characters in Star Trek.As a continuity buff and a huge fan of Deep Space Nine, reading this trilogy has been a huge treat for me In this second book, Perry and Dennison have crafted a stark and brutally honest look at the occupation and the hellish conditions it produced for Bajor and her people While this is easily one of the darkest chapters in Star Trek history, the long night must eventually end dawn is coming.Full

formally annexed the planet it had already manipulated and tricked its way into dominating Bajor has suffered greatly at the hands of the military dictatorship since, its economy cast into ruins as the Cardassians impose a kind of mercantilism that destroys the environment and shifts most resources to the Union Not content to complain and malinger in refugee camps, however, many Bajorans have taken to active rebellion Hiding in the wilderness, they wage war against the oppressor and if collaborators get in the way, so be it Night of the Wolves, from the pen of an already accomplished DS9 author, chronicles the Resistance s emergence as a serious threat to Cardassia s triumph It is told principally through the lives of screen established characters Gul Dukat, Kira, Ro Laren, Dr Mora while incorporating a few new faces The heavy use of canon characters, with subtle links to Deep Space Nine s episodes, makes Night an ideal Trek series book, easily read on its own regardless of its place in a trilogy.While Night doesn t have the same climatic structure as Day of the Vipers, simply chronicling twelve years of the occupation in which both the resistance and players within it come of age, the depth it adds to established characters makes it a commendable read The plot threads within don t intersect too much, but here we see both Kira and Ro s introduction to the resistance and for Ro, her motive for seeking a life beyond Bajor, haunted by the fear of falling prey to the idea that the ends justify the means Here, too, is Odo s birth as a sentiment being, his coming of age within a Bajoran Cardassian science lab The pages flew by for me, featuring as they did some of my favorite characters Dukat, Kira, and Ro Laren but even some of the new characters with stories independent of the DS9 shows took my interest One of note is a Cardassian grad student who, after having an Orb experience while attempting to translate the writing on an artifact, travels back to Cardassia and discovers her people s life prior to the military takeover Dukat is here in all his pre Waltz ambiguous glory, One matter of concern is the early introduction of some characters, namely Damar and Ziyal, and the fact that one character says The middle of the occupation is no time to be having a child Unless he s had an experience with the Orb of Time, which is lost, he probably shouldn t know he s in the middle of the Occupation To make matters worse, he s not even in the middle of the occupation it s barely a third of the way through This seems to make Ziyal far older than she appears onscreen, and Damar s career somewhat pathetic Thirty years before we first see him onscreen, he was still a low grade glinn worshiping the ground Dukat walks on That s Harry Kim style career doldrums.Though not as tight a story as Day, I liked it better such is the draw of its characters I liked this book much better than the first in the series Not because it was better written, but because the amount of familiar faces made iteasier to connect with.This book, like the first, was obviously the product of intense and extensive research There s a vast amount of information conveyed about people, places, social structures, etc but it is given in a way that always makes sense within the plot, and avoids info dumping In terms of the characters used, I was surprised by how

terms of the people they later become, and add another layer of interest to a familiar character I was particularly impressed by the young versions of Kira Nerys and Ro Laren they show how much they ve grown since then, but also why they grew in the ways they did The characterization of Opaka was also believable and interesting, making her sympathetic but not so perfect that she seems infallible.I especially liked the complexity the book brought to the situation between Kira Meru and Dukat The episode ended it a bit too happily for me she was a prisoner, no matter how she was treated, and this book acknowledged that.This book also does a nice job of subtly adding in clues and small facts that will later become relevant.All in all a very interesting book Book 2 of the Terok Nor trilogy moves at a considerably quicker pace than the first, but that may be an illusion due to just how many characters it tries to juggle Fortunately, the authors are capable enough to make that work even if it does cause my brain to work overtime as a try to remember each person involved in the tale.The book jumps around consistently, rarely staying on one character forthan a few pages, and a number of the story threads are abandoned part way through I assume h Book 2 of the Terok Nor trilogy moves at a considerably quicker pace than the first, but that may be an illusion due to just how

3.But the writing and characters themselves are great Perry and Dennison make each Cardassian or Bajoran feel distinct and have their own personality Many of the characters are from various episodes of the TV shows so it helps to have the actor s faces and performances in your head.Much as with book 1, I find myself appreciating how much effort was made to keep the book s events fit in with established continuity In some places that does go a bit overboard for example, with a Cardassian named Marritza whom we later find out in an episode of DS9 was horrified by his people s actions on Bajor the book randomly points out things about him that a character notices which nobody would naturally infer.Quite an exciting story about one of my favourite parts of Star Trek lore A very young Kira and Odo even play small parts in the tale by this point It also does a great job of showing Gul Dukat s mixed emotions over his job, and indeed his misguided belief that he s helping the Bajorans Terrible storylineHow Bajor became free was not what I wanted to read, but advised to.If you re not interested in Bajor s history before the Ds9 series, Then I don t recommend this. Everything I wanted from the previous novel but didn t get plots that hold my attention, interesting distinct characters I felt invested in, emotional stakes, broad ensemble in a variety of circumstances during these prequel events. That s better focus starts to shift tofamiliar characters and their backstories Much improved over book one. Now that the miniseries has gotten into book two they were really able to get a good combination of new and exciting characters, and the plot kept me hooked.
