Sisko is asked to be present as the new USS Saratoga- A is unveiled at the Utpia planitia Shipyards. But he is uneasy about meeting up with his former crew-mates as their very presence reminds him of the horrific battle of Wolf 35, where he lost his beloved wife Jennifer.
But he soon realises that there is more gong on then a simple dedication ceremony. Although he is happy to see his old comrades ( many of whom we previously had limited knowledge of ) he soon realises that the trip to Utopia Planitia is sabotaged. Sisko has to deal with the pain of Jennifer's death dredged up by a former crew-mate as well as trying to discover who is trying to destroy his crew. How can Sisko leave behind the years of service and beleive that one of the people who saved his life can be responsible for trying to destroy it?
I enjoyed this book as it dealt with a time in sisko's life which was never really explored in the tv series. I liked the chararcterisations and the plot but I flet that the enigma of who exactly was the traitor could have been more drawn out. And I would have liked to know more about the Saratoga's crew past but on the whole this book was a great read and I would recommend it to anyone who was interested in Sisko and his former commands.

While Star Trek: Deep Space Nine undoubtedly had the best characterization of any of the Star Trek series, Sisko's past was never really mentioned. Although we saw him on the Saratoga in "Emissary" and he was mentioned as serving on the USS Livingston in "Invasive Procedures" and the USS Okinawa during the Tzenkethi War (wasn't there supposed to be a novel about that?), this novel was the first to mention in detail events from Sisko's time on the Saratoga and the people he served with. The novel moves along well and has a good "B" plot with Odo posing as Quark to save a Bajoran city. Some of the new characters are quite interesting, especially Barnes and Lopez.

HASH(0x91490e94) out of 5 stars DS9 #18 Saratoga - Good but with faults! 23 Jan. 2004
By K. Wyatt - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
For several years now I've been reading and enjoying Star Trek novels and have always found novels written by Michael Jan Friedman, Star Trek's most prolific author, to be among the best. Unfortunately, "Saratoga" cannot be counted among those as the plot and the pacing of this novel frequently drifts. What makes it worse is that the premise of the story is an extremely interesting one when considering it deals with some of Captain Benjamin Sisko's past along with the current timeline.
If this is the only Star Trek novel you've ever read by Michael Jan Friedman, who is one of Star Trek's premier authors, I urge you to not take this one as the definitive example of his writing as the majority of his novels are superior in every aspect conceivable, making them highly enjoyable reads in this genre!
The cover art for this title is unfortunately the same standard fare as the majority of those novels released at the same time as this one.
The premise:
Tasked with escorting the surviving members of his former USS Saratoga crew aboard the Defiant to an important ceremony, Captain Sisko finds himself dealing with the painful memories of the loss of his wife during the Borg attack at Wolf 359 and the possibility of sabotage aboard the Defiant by one of those same former crew members...
Overall, I would recommend this novel as it part of the line of Star Trek Deep Space Nine series, albeit a stand alone story, and the majority of these novels are well worth the read and this novel does have its place in the series. {ssintrepid}

HASH(0x921aa5e8) out of 5 stars Self-Plagerism? 24 July 2000
By Ken Ramstead - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Can one plagerize oneself? "Hmmm. I'm Michael Jan Friedman, my deadline looms, and I do not have a book ready, and if I don't, I'll have to give up my author advance. Hmmm. Let's turn my PC on. Drag up the find/change menu. Hmmm. Keep 'Reunion' theme. Change 'Picard' to 'Sisko'. Hmmm. Change 'Enterprise' to 'Saratoga'. Lookin' good. Change 'murderer' to 'saboteur'. Eureka!" Needless to say, the similarities to this book and the author's own "Reunion" are just too numerous to mention. The retreaded plot was bad enough, but even judged on its own merits, this novel is very weak with gaping holes in the plot. The silly motive for the sabotage was ridiculous, as was the entire counsellor subplot. Does the author expect us to believe that a female crewperson -- and a counsellor, mind you -- would fall in love with Benjamin Sisko -- let alone anyone -- on sight, without even knowing that person, to the extent that she would deliberately let his wife die in order to have a shot at him? This is just plain silly. I was very disappointed with this book.Especially as the author is capable of so much more.

HASH(0x921f65c4) out of 5 stars Suspensful 13 April 2000
By Ichirou Ohgami - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I'd say this book is packed with suspense and humor. The point is I'm glad we finally get to seea great book about Sisko's personal history and that of Saratoga. I'm even gladder Friedman picked the job.

HASH(0x91c96ed0) out of 5 stars Not that good 13 Mar. 2003
By Omni - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Again the books were trying to find themselves. Though the Defiant gave the characters more mobility in a plot sense, this revisiting of Sisko's past didn't necessarily suggest perfection. It takes time to develop a new concept for characters that are being fixed in the public consciousness. This book tried to bring in some of Sisko's past, the past being an area thatthe book writer's can explore without fear of destroying some precious future episode. And though theres a heavy feeling of mourning, it's also nice to see how Sisko interacts with another crew.
