The Borg are back... once again. As was to be expected, they have developed into even more resourceful and therefore dangerous foes. In part, this story has (in chronological order) already developed to some extent in J.M. Dillard's 'Resistance', Peter David's 'Before dishonor' and Christopher L. Bennett's 'Greater than the Sum'. Anyone interested in the latest Borg developments in the Star Trek universe would do well to read these previous installments before venturing forth and reading the 'Destiny' trilogy.

'Gods of Night' is the first part of the 'Destiny' trilogy. The story alternates between 4 different Star Fleet ships, one of which was lost centuries before the Borg were first encountered. So apart from the grim nature of the renewed Borg attack, the story is somewhat demanding because the reader is required to keep track of these 4 different storylines. There were times when I wasn't really sure who belonged on what ship, I must admit.

Although the book is certainly well-written, I found it hard to escape the impression that the main course (the conflict with the Borg) is more or less put on hold for the later two books. That is not necessarily a bad thing, since this means that many more personal developments had a chance to come to fruition here.

Alltogether an enjoyable (but challenging) read, although final judgment will have to be postponed until the other books have been read as well.

This is without doubt the best startrek series on the kindle. I wont spoil the plot for you. My only 2 complaints are
1) I'm mean't to be reading for 30 mins before going to sleep. No chance of that, routinely getting in trouble for reading at 1am. Just can't put it down.

2) David mac Isn'tt writing books fast enough.

A very good book. The plot moves fast as befits the situation the characters are in. The characters are extremly well written (when Picard, Riker, Dax etc are "on-screen" it feels like the same characters from the shows and not someone with the same name but different personalities as can happen in Trek books). All three A plots are given plenty of time to grow and move on, leading to a tense final part (though I have issues with the reveal of what happened to the Colombia's crew, the weakest part of the story for me, though I'll see how it plays out in books 2 & 3).

Aside from my issues with part of the ending (and Troi and Riker's baby issues which, while explained and referenced a TNG episode, seemed a bit too depressing for a fan of both characters), this was a very good opening book and I'm looking forward to plowing through the next.
