Book Description

7 Oct 1996 Star Trek: Deep Space Nine (Book 17)
While a crucial peace conference fills "Deep Space Nine"TM with rumors of intrigue and conspiracy, Major Kira and Lt. Commander Worf embark on a dangerous undercover mission deep into the heart of the Gamma Quadrant. Their mission: to find the secret of the addictive substance that the Changelings use to control their Jem'Hadar warriors. But how long can Worf and Kira remain undetected in the midst of the Dominion? Odo may be their only hope; but to save them, he'll have to stand against his own people.

3.0 out of 5 stars Better the first time 6 Mar 2000
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Reading this now after the Dominion War has been and gone I'm actually a little disappointed. Despite the interesting setup and the excellent action sequences somehow the novel just falls flat, despite spot-on characterisation.

3.0 out of 5 stars Two major plotlines are too much for one book 3 Aug 2008
By Charles Ashbacher - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
The Star Trek: Deep Space Nine series was different from many other series in that storylines continued over several episodes. While this allowed the story to be expanded into much greater detail, it also meant that multiple plotlines were often simultaneously followed. While this is acceptable and even sensible in a series, it can be a problem in a book. In this case it is a problem.
After great effort, a peace conference has been scheduled between the Cardassians, the Federation, the Maquis group of guerrilla fighters and the Valtusians. Just getting these sides to a conference is a major achievement and Commander Cisco and the officers of Deep Space Nine (DS9) are having great difficulties in managing all of the security problems. A Bajoran group is also on DS9 and is staging major protests. It is their contention that Gul Mekkar, the leader of the Cardassian delegation, is the perpetrator of war crimes during the Carassian occupation of Bajor.
In the second major plotline, Odo, Worf and Kira are on an undercover mission into Dominion controlled space. They are to make contact with a man who supposedly has information on the drug that the Founders use to control the Jem'Hadar warriors. This mission takes them deep into Dominion territory and they ultimately end up stowing away on a Dominion ship. Since Quark, Bashir and O'Brien are also major characters, there are aspects of the story that involve their actions.
The two major plotlines are just too much for one book and the events where Kira and Worf stowaway on the Dominion ships are absurd. As other episodes have demonstrated, the ubiquitous computer involvement in the running of a ship would mean that an intruder aboard a ship would be easily and immediately detected. This would have been a better story if the peace conference had been the only major theme and the background and context more thoroughly explored. A reader unfamiliar with the series would be left puzzled by some of the references.

2.0 out of 5 stars Good concept 13 Mar 2003
By Omni - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
A good concept for a story that doesn't develop well enough to be thsi short of a book. Basically they spend most of their time hidden and then escape in the nick of time. I wished that this book would've been better, it had the potential to be greater and unfortunately the ideas didn't always live up to the promise of what I think the writers wanted them to.
5.0 out of 5 stars The Heart of the Warrior #17 15 May 2013

My son-in-law is very pleased. His collection is slowly, but surely, being completed. It's was a great price and I'm thrilled that he is enjoying it.
3.0 out of 5 stars Adequate but unspectacular. 8 Jan 2007
By James Yanni - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This is a perfectly acceptable story in the genre of Star Trek DS9, but it has nothing to recommend it above the general run of such stories. It is competently written, but is really just "another DS9 story". If you enjoy DS9, it will be a fun read, but even so, within a week you'll have trouble remembering any details; it just isn't very memorable.

4.0 out of 5 stars The first Star Trek DS9 novel with Worf. 20 July 1997
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
As you have read above, Mr. Betancourt considers this to be a fine example of Star Trek fiction. Having Worf join DS9 was the biggest event in DS9 for several years, and truly gave the show another dimension.

The Heart of the Warrior is an introduction to the new environment of DS9 with Worf. The story itself has a concise plot line that involves only a few of the characters. Heart is very similar to some of the Star Trek episodes which focus on a particular character, Thus, Heart will be acceptable to most Star Trek readers.
