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.
Although there's a very helpful timeline summarizing the events in the previous novels, I don't recommend starting here. Too many events will lack the resonance they should have if you haven't read what's been building up over the course of the previous books. But if you have been reading the books and you haven't read this yet... what are you waiting for? Don't wait for the paperback. It's worth buying the hardcover.
If you were ever moved by past Star Trek stories like The Wrath of Khan, The Inner Light, All Good Things..., The Visitor, or What You Leave Behind, well, Unity packs the same kind of punch. Action, suspense, great character moments, major developments in the ongoing storyline... all here. Some developments that we've hoped for and expected happen, but never in a predictable way. And there's so much more yet to be told... some storylines aren't resolved, and others will be generated by the changes made here. Consider this the end of the first phase of the DS9 relaunch and the beginning of the second phase.
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.Read more ›
Writing this review forced me to examine this work for flaws and dampened my enthusiasm a little, but not too much. It is not a book that generally grips the reader in anticipation of what happens next, but the writing is very entertaining and has a smoothness of flow that makes the pages pass without notice. If you love the characters of DS9 you will (I hope) enjoy it as much as I did.

I can't believe I waited too long to read this. It's a really nice story that fits well with the DS9 continuity and the touches to its history is welcome sight.Published 3 months ago by Amazon Customer

I was dissapointed in the end, I thought it was rushed, otherwise a good read. I was just hoping that with the delay we could have had a better ending.Published on Dec 1 2003 by Kennith Perry
