United Against Invasion,
This review is from: Star Trek Invasion Omnibus (Paperback)
As a concept, the series was excellent, bringing all four crews of the then-known series together in an effective and believable manner against an enemy of exceptional power and scope that's almost more terrifying than the Borg; while the Borg's cold 'dedication' can be attributed to their machine-like logic, the Furies are driven by a fixation on the past that's almost as terrifying as their weapons (All of which are described in excellent detail, I might add; a race with great power who are simultaneously weakened by the lack of opportunity to use that power in a fight).
In general, the crews are protrayed in a very believeable manner, expertly utilising their respective unique strengths against the Furies and the Unclean, such as Data's lack of emotions or the implications of Dax's Trill nature, as well as created some interesting enemies to confront with a wide range of technological and biological talents. Unfortunately, "Final Fury" lets the side down to its poor characterisation of some of the main characters- while the Doctor's argument about destroying the Furies being the equivalent of 'triage' on a galactic scale had potential, B'Elanna comes across as far less confident than she ever was in the series, and a few of the character dynamics REALLY don't work-, but given that it was written early on in "Voyager"'s broadcast history that could be attributed to ignorance of the characters rather than a flaw on the part of the writer's ability.
All in all, while "Final Fury" might benefit from a rewrite in some areas, in general the series has an excellent plot and drama that I greatly enjoyed reading.
