Product Description

THE NEEDS OF THE MANY

Despite heroic efforts by Thirishar ch’Thane, the Andorian species is headed for extinction. Its slow march toward oblivion has reached a tipping point, one from which there will be no hope of return.

THE NEEDS OF THE FEW

With countless lives at stake, the leaders of Andor, the Federation, and the Typhon Pact all scheme to twist the crisis to their political gain—at any price.

THE NEEDS OF THE ONE

Unwilling to be a mere bystander to tragedy, Doctor Julian Bashir risks everything to find a cure for the Andorians. But his courage will come at a terrible cost: his career, his freedom . . . and maybe his life.

Format:Mass Market Paperback
The Fall book three is about Doctor Bashir and the situation with the Andorians that's been going on for so many books now I've lost track. If you've been reading then you can guess the key points of the setup, if not I won't spoil it.

A staple writer of the current Trek novelling generation, David Mack once again produces an action packed novel with far-reaching consequences for the franchise as a whole. With a close focus on a single plot it nevertheless weaves in a number of other strands that continue the ongoing narrative.

Mack shows a strong grasps of key characters and really shows off well what makes them tick. As well as the main plot, he gives a number of background characters good quality arcs within the novel and they certainly don't feel like bit parts to give context to the central storyline.

A good episode in The Fall, and one that nicely focusses on small events rather than some of the grander occasions in the first two books of the series, while allowing the big stuff to go on in the background. Another great 24th Century novel from David Mack.

5.0 out of 5 stars unswitchoffable 14 Nov 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
This review will be 20 words long, because this book is excellent, David Mack's books always are. Fast paced, action, no blathering about the scenery, or the wind, or distant memories. Just the essential action. And as always a feeling of the larger star trek world, not just one ship or station.

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy fluid read and insight into Andor 2 April 2014
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
Initially I thought this might be a pondering novel in the vein of the Cathedral Series that featured Andor a few year back but this is much, much better and a very enjoyable updating of the Trek Universe. A great insight into the Andorian politics and chemistry of Andorian society with characters you can enjoy following.
The ending is a vivid satisfying read with a few surprises leaving one with a hunger for the next book in the excellent The Fall series

4.0 out of 5 stars If I could give it 4 1/2 stars, I would.. 28 Jan 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is the third novel in The Fall mini-series and continues on right after the events of Book 1, though at first seemingly on another thread- namely the Andorian fertility crisis and all the subsequent events leading up to and following the secession of Andor from the Federation. The main character is Dr Bashir, who up this point has been sadly underused in other recent novels, but who is about to set in motion a train of events that will have a monumental impact throughout the whole Federation, right up to the very highest levels.
We meet the new “caretaker President” and right away it’s clear that he is not another Nan Bacco, though he does believe in a strong Federation and suspects Typhon Pact involvement in her assassination. He is ambitious and assisted by a campaign manager who is a nasty piece of work, both of them prepared to circumvent normal protocols and issue orders directly to individual Starfleet captains.
As the story progresses more characters we know get involved and end up having to make moral decisions, so there is a fair amount of conscience searching going on and quite a few ‘lines in the sand’ are crossed, resulting in sides being drawn between those that follow orders no matter what and those that question the morality of those orders. One of my favourite characters, Ezri Dax takes the moral decision and ends up in a firefight with another Starfleet vessel, while trying to protect Dr Bashir and get him to Andor. Needless to say there are repercussions for both characters which I won’t spoil by describing here.
By the end of the book, a slight sense of disquiet has set in, the result of some of the shadowy orders given.
