I'm always a little worried going into a Star Trek book because I'm not always sure which kind of Star Trek book I'm going to find. Will I find a book primarily driven by chapter after chapter of character development or am I going to find a book full of chapter after chapter of suspense and drama. Here in Unity, I think found a good balance of both, but for everything I like about the book there are a few things I don't.

First and foremost, Unity is a book driven by the author's understanding of the characters themselves. Each main character in the book is well fleshed out and is portrayed as the show's creators intended. For me the star of the book is Ro. Ro is a character reintroduced to the Trek world in S.D. Perry's prior books named Avatar. In Unity, Ro is given special treatment and the most breathing room as a character. As the book moves along we see Ro evolve as a person. By the end of the book she is a changed person, no longer the Bajoran woman not to be trusted but now a key member of the DS9 crew.

Even though Ro is well fleshed out in the book some of the other characters are not. For me Ezri and Julian are tragically underused. Ezri has a key role in the beginning of the book as her experiences are closely tied to the events surrounding the enemy threat, but by the middle of the book both her and Julian are left behind and relegated to babysitting the Defiant.

As for the other characters we know, we see most well portrayed, too. Vaughn has an important story to be told, and with his issues surrounding his daughter it is an interesting story as well. I had wished a little more of a solid conclusion to that part of the book but see that a few things need to be left over for the continuing tale. As seen on the cover, Ben Sisko plays a part in the book.

I finished reading STAR TREK DS9:UNITY two days ago and it was great. It was good to see the old crew back in action. And was great to have Captain Sisko return. And it was definately great to have Odo return, even if for a visit. I just wish that they ended the Television Series differently Kira & Odo were definately made for each other and they both deserve some happiness, even if Odo is not a solid. But they didn't. I was hoping though that Odo was coming back to stay in the book. I was also glad to see Bajor finally join the Federation, even though it should have happened at the end of the series even if they needed a few more episodes to do it. And I am very pleased that Starfleet has rewarded Kira for her Loyalty by making her a Starfleet Captain.
But from what I understand, if it doesn't happen the T.V. shows or in the movies then it doesn't happen in the Star Trek Universe. Which I think is stupid, but all I can hope is that Paramount makes at least one STAR TREK DS9 MOVIE to fix all the mistakes it make at the end of series.

I waited a very long time for this book, and I must say it was worthy of the wait. S.D. Perry began the relaunch of DS9 with the "Avatar" duet, and since then, I've been avidly watching the series unfold.

First off, the book captured the ensemble feel of the show excellently - the main characters - including the new characters written into the storyline to replace characters gone or lost at the show's end - all shine in their own way with their own interesting stories. The new plot-arc of the invading parasitic aliens - as we've seen on screen in TNG, and read about in the superb "Lives of Dax," short story collection - continues with a great deal of suspense and solid prose work.

Best of all, the internal minds and emotional states of the characters are both valid and consistant. Shar, especially, gets a lot of work in this book, as does Lieutenant Ro, who is definitely at a loss as to what she should choose, now that Bajor might merge with the Federation and her job would become a Starfleet one.

Granted, the purchase of a Star Trek hardcover often makes me flinch (it's quite expensive), but this one was worth it - even if I did tear through it in a single evening.

The only part of the book I have a caveat for is the 'Benny' storyline - I never quite liked Sisko's insane asylum plotline in the series, and having Elias Vaughn go through something similar grated on me a little - though, if you enjoyed the various visions Sisko had at the hands of the prophets in the show, you'll likely enjoy this also.

Very well done.

Due to two pregnancies (editor Marco Palmieri's wife and Perry herself), "Unity" was pushed back from its initial release of February. As such, fans of the relaunch have been eagerly awaiting the arrival of "Unity," which promises to deliver many of the answers fans have been waiting for. Indeed, it proves to wrap up old plot lines and create more, making for an extremely fast read (three hours); however, fans of Perry's previous work in the Trek universe already know of her fast-paced, well-written prose and deft characterization. One can almost hear the actors delivering their lines with customary inflection; from O'Brien to Kira to Opaka, the characters come alive on every page. If anything, the 330 or so pages are barely enough to contain the energy, development, and anticipation that build up through the entire novel.
At the center of "Unity" is, of course, the parasite crisis; Bajor and DS9 are under seige and the Bajoran sector is under lockdown. Cardassian warships surround both planet and station, a communications blackout in effect. Gul Macet, previously seen clawing at his throat when a parasite launches itself at the Dukat-esque Cardassian, is in charge of the Cardassian contingent. This is the scene that Vaughn and the crew of the "Defiant" find themselves entering.
Without revealing anything too much, "Unity" gives us more of the inner turmoil Vaughn finds himself facing after shooting the Borg-Ruriko in sickbay, the anger Prynn holds for Vaughn, the deep-seeded Trill desire for privacy in all matters internal, and, of course, Kira's Attainder.
