Weaving the events of the other four Typhon Pacts together, "Plagues of Night" brings Deep Space 9 back to the centre of Star Trek politics in the Star Trek universe. Sisko gets to take his new ship on a voyage of exploration, while dealing with the actions he took in "Rough Beasts of Empire", Ro Laren comes into her own as commanding office of DS9 and Spock temporarily joins the Enterprise-E crew. "Plagues of Night" also introduces several new DS9 characters, the most intriguing is Commander Blackmer, the security chief of the station.
he only drawback of the novel for me was Worf - I don't really read the new TNG novels, but his role as first officer of the Enterprise seems to have diluted his character somewhat.
