Book Description

16 Jan 2014 Star Trek
The Federation is rocked to its core as the Typhon Pact is suspected of being behind a barbarous act that shatters the fragile peace of the Alpha Quadrant. An original Star Trek novel, this is the final part of a five-book story arc that takes place over a sixty-day period, but it is not necessary to read each novel in order to follow the storyline, which involves all aspects of The Next Generation and Deep Space Nine universes.

Format:Mass Market Paperback
The final book of The Fall - the 'event' mini-series that's rounded off the 2013 catalogue of Star Trek continuation novels - wraps up everything that's been building over the past few novels. The book follows two of the regulars in particular: Doctor Crusher as she's sent undercover to meet a Cardassian under mysterious circumstances, and Captain Picard as he's left on the Enterprise.

As a single story, it felt surprisingly small compared to the scale of the previous books in the series. The narrow focus on Crusher was interesting as she's an underserved character, but I missed some of the other characters and was expecting more of an ensemble piece to round out the series.

The author uses a lot of flashback to fill in what happened in previous novels, and to add backstory that we've not been aware of so far, and throughout the novel this feels very awkwardly presented and disrupts the flow of the narrative.

The political thriller feel of previous novels in the series lent a lot of depth and this felt more like a military thriller - you knew these things were happening elsewhere but it felt like they were unimportant and secondary. I understand that the publisher's plans for the future of the series are to depart from the more connected political universe of recent years' Star Trek novels, and I for one will be disappointed if this is the case.

4.0 out of 5 stars A satisfying conclusion to the series 13 Feb 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is the last book in The Fall mini-series and it has a lot to live up to. Book 4 (The Poisoned Chalice) in particular was a blinder and this was always going to struggle to match it, however it doesn’t do badly. Dayton Ward sometimes has a tendency to reiterate a lot of the earlier stories, which is unnecessary if, like me, you’ve just read them all virtually back to back. If you’ve come to this book as a standalone novel however, you will probably need that amount of backstory in order to make much sense of what’s going on. Overall, it’s not a criticism as some will benefit, others will not.
This time the main character is Dr Crusher, who heads up a small team looking into an archaeological dig on a world once populated by Bajorans during the Cardassian occupation years earlier. There is evidence that suggests that the new Federation President elect may not be all he says he is and Crusher must locate it before others destroy it. Unfortunately this requires the reader to travel back in time on several occasions and you do have to concentrate just to be clear whether you are in the past or present, as some of the same names occur in both timeframes. One benefit of this however is that we finally get a bit more backstory on the President elect, which has been in short supply elsewhere in the series. Indeed it could be argued that he has been a bit underwritten previously, appearing from nowhere and suddenly about to take on the most powerful job in the Federation. There has always been that hint of menace, and doubt about his motivations, but it is only in this story that we find out the full story. I won’t spoil it here though.

I very much enjoyed the series of books, Star Trek: The Fall (the Star Trek "events" have been consistently good since the "Destiny" series, whereas before that they were very much more patchy in quality) and Dayton Ward's closing book was no exception.
***WARNING, SLIGHT SPOILER ALERT***
However, since the main antagonist is a religious Bajoran, why didn't Riker, Picard, Akaar et al, simply contact Sisko and work a bluff? During his years as the recognised "Emissary of The Prophets" and his years in "The Celestial Temple", it wouldn't be unreasonable for a Bajoran to believe that Sisko might have picked up certain information. Come to that, Starfleet acceptance of "The Wormhole Aliens" existing in non-linear time ought to have drawn them to take Sisko into their confidence anyway (as well as bringing Garak into the plot at a much earlier stage; not to mention Odo, now he's stuck in the Alpha quadrant).
These small niggles aside, I found the book to be very enjoyable and would recommend the series, if perhaps not the book individually.

Good story would have liked the other characters (nog) to have played more of a role but tied up all loose ends
