Format: Mass Market Paperback
Following from the second chapter with captain picard this falls a little flat. Taken on its own this is a good read, as all these novels have been so far. Captain Sisko is the first to realise that this is no ordinary bar, but the interruptions is story flow by the other patrons of the bar are very anoying. The story flows reasonalby well but the use of the mist as a benevolent force in the dominion war is a little too much to take. If you've got this far in the series read this book, as an individual novel this should be left on the shelf.

Of the six Captain's Table books I'd have to say this one comes in a close second to Peter David's "Once Burned." I say this because I feel that the character of Captain Sisko is one of the best characters in the Trek universe.
Although there are a few minor inconsistencies in the story, they are not too distracting. As it happens, a lot of the Trek books released have had them and I do my best to ignore them. After all, the books are not canon.
"The Mist" is an extremely well told story about a race that lives close to DS9 and are for all intents and purposes, cloaked or in another dimension that is only one step removed from the Federations. What a wonderful concept! In my opinion, the author's captured Captain Sisko's personality really well. The character interactions in the bar were particularly good. Sotugh is a well done Klingon. The Quilli besting a Klingon was really funny as well. Overall a great story and thank you very much to the author's for this one. {ssintrepid}

Having baught what turned out to be book 4 out of 6 in a local second hand bookshop in the series the Captain's Table, the local library did not have a copy of this volume so I resorted to Amazon. Took a fair while to get here but did let me continure with the series, having read the first two out of the library.

HASH(0x940415d0) out of 5 stars Not earthshattering, but not bad, either! 17 April 2000
By Diane Bellomo - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
It's very interesting, this Captain's Table series, in that each book begins in the bar, but then basically goes the way of the author who wrote it.
I was at first annoyed with all the interruptions (both from 'beings' in the bar listening to Sisko tell the story and by Sisko's own thoughts), because that's not how the other books are written. Once I got over myself about it and just let myself fall into the story, I was fine. In fact, I found that one alien darned amusing.
There were a couple of editing rough spots, but I dismissed those because it's just silly to bother. This is a paperback novel, not brain surgery.
The Mist are an odd bunch, and you'll just never guess where they live.
Once again I can say, the Captain's Table bar is the perfect backdrop for fine Trek storytelling.

HASH(0x942a03cc) out of 5 stars Definite page-turner 22 Jun. 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I really, really felt like I was sitting at the same table as Capt. Sisko, listening to his tale with this story. The suspense is well-timed, the characters and plot are vivid, and the whole story *moved* with a pace that I found hard to put down -- even for the season finale of DS9. I even found myself craving some nachos and jambalaya when I finally put the book down...and feeling sorry for that little gecko...

HASH(0x9404187c) out of 5 stars Top notch storytelling. 4 Dec. 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
This book had the interesting perspective of Sisko having to contend with a cantankerous Klingon (aren't they all?), watching over his shoulder as he told his story. It made for some fun. The story itself was more cerebral than action. (Let's face it the enemy here was no match). It was, however, well told and the flow was better than in some of the other books of the series. I'm going to have to make up a batch of jambalaya this weekend.

HASH(0x9460ccfc) out of 5 stars One of the best Star Trek novels I've read so far. 23 Aug. 1998
By TanRu12@aol.com - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
When I went to get a book, this one jumped out at me. I wasn't sure whether I should get it, but I bought it. The Mist turned out to be one of the best Star Trek novels I've read in a long time. I really felt like I was in The Captain's Table, sitting next to Sisko, with the Quilli sitting near me ruffling his bristles. I really enjoyed this book. I couldn't put it down for a minute and neither will you.
