Inside This Book (Learn More)
First Sentence
Captain's Log, supplemental. We discovered the loss of the Gamma Quadrant's sub-space communications relay at the same time we became aware of the massive, apparently sudden shift of matter and space in the 1A-2E sections of the Gamma Quadrant's Idran sector (see initial entry, Stardate 53679.4), which sensors suggest occurred eighty-five hours ago. Read the first page

Format: Hardcover
Unity is brilliant. In around 400 pages S.D. Perry writes humourously, caringly and affectionally, she makes the characters real and you really will feel for them all. Lots of strands are brought together and many concluded but some are left dangling, enticing you to come back to the universe of the DS9 relaunch in 2004. This book is so brilliant I could not pick it up because I knew if I did then it would eventually be finished and when I got to the end (for die-hard fans of DS9 the last chapter will bring a tear to your eye) it would be over. I reccommend getting the previous books in the series to get up to speed on the many new characters although there is a timeline telling you what has happened since the end of the Dominion war. I cannot praise this book highly enough, all I can say is Buy it and savour it.
PS- I am not affiliated with S.D.Perry at all or pocket books, even though it may seem that way with my begging you to buy it. Honest.

Format: Hardcover
i loved reading another ST:DS9 book and this was another well written book, to match the earlier books. i was slightly disappointed at the way Sisko was brought back. for me it was a bit anticlimaxical as it seemed to lead up to a high note then play a lower one. i was disappionted that the end happened so quickly,and with the way the Bashir/Dax relationship seemed to be neglected, after so much time in the last several books being devoted to their growimg relationship, to very little in this. i was also disappointed at the lack of Kira/(wont say who) as i thought that more could have been said for these two being reunited. all in all well written and a good end, but could have been soo much better, though i suppose these things will work themselves out in the next lot of books

Format: Mass Market Paperback
With Unity, by S.D. Perry, the first section of the continuation of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine is concluded. It's a nine-month arc that carries through the pregnancy of Ben Sisko's wife, Kasidy, and how the station has functioned since Ben was taken away by the Prophets to exist outside of "linear time." Perry started the whole shebang with Avatar, so it's only fitting that she be allowed to end it as well. Unity is an explosive conclusion that ends a few plotlines, continues a few others, and sets the table for any future books to come. It has to deal with the Ben Sisko situation, bring back a lot of other Deep Space Nine characters, and also tell an exciting story. Can any one book do all of that? Thankfully, yes. Perry hits one out of the park with Unity, creating a book that I literally could not put down (I had to force myself a couple of times, but that was it).
Perry throws everything except the proverbial kitchen sink in there, yet the story doesn't feel overstuffed. Every Deep Space Nine character is seen in some capacity, no matter how briefly. The threat to the Federation is handled extremely well, with the tension so thick you could cut it with a phaser. Perry brings it all together with aplomb, never feeling rushed and allowing the characters to reflect a little bit on what's been going on. Many of the ongoing storylines are resolved (Vaughn's and Kira's especially, but also the "should I stay or should I go" routine from both Ro and Quark) and others get new directions (such as the O'Briens, who have come to the station with Joseph Sisko for the birth of Kas' child). The direction that O'Brien's story takes is actually very interesting, and is leading to a good story in the first Worlds of Deep Space Nine book, so that's good news.

Format: Hardcover
I read this novel in one sitting and it is brillent. I will not spoil the surprises near the end of the book but I will say story lines are concluded but new ones are kick started and i'm a big fan of the series in fact i will say its the best trek series. The ending of the book makes you smile, a whole new wealth of stories are ready to be told and there are loose ends that will surely lead to even bigger things. Unity is a great novel and it is the conclusion of seven seasons of great drama and all i can say is more more very soon.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
As the end of the so-called "Season 8" of DS9, I had expected this book to pull out all the stops and be a tour de force in terms in story. I was left disappointed in that regard. The narrative is extremely slow going until the final pages of the book, indeed there are long passages where nothing is really happening, but we are teased with what is yet to come.

When taken in perspective with the entire DS9 Relaunch saga, it fits in well however. The stunning plot revelations, when they do finally occur, are fantastic to behold.

After Perry's previous books in the series, I had expected something much more exciting. It does all lead up to a great "season finale" in the end, which means I am looking forward to continuing, but the majority of the book itself is a let down.

It's a really poor story, doesn't go anywhere, and the ending is a deus ex machina of the worst kind, so much more could have been done about to expand on the parasites, but that's in other books.

Basically it finishes up a series, if you've got this far you'll get this book and finish it...but on it's own merits it has none
