Star Trek: DS9 — Avatar, Book One

{4.5/5} “‘Hard to port, close in, and fire as soon as we’re in range,’ Ezri said, feeling too many things to sort through, hidden among them a tiny astonishment as the full realization hit — she was commanding the Defiant by memories of Jadzia, but with a confidence all her own.”

Star Trek: Deep Space Nine — Avatar, Book One by S. D. Perry, published in 2001

Jake Sisko is helping out at an archaelogical dig on Bajor when a woman, Prylar Istani, hands him an ancient document. It’s a prophecy that says he will be able to retrieve his father from the Celestial Temple. Later, on Deep Space Nine, Prylar Istani is killed in an apparent robbery attempt. Colonel Kira, who knew Istani, tells her new security chief to get to the bottom of it — Lieutenant Ro.

This book was the official start of the relaunch — books that took place after the series. From 2001 to 2021 stories of Next Generation, Titan, Deep Space Nine, and Voyager took place in a consistent universe.

It’s about old friends who are gone and new friends who have arrived. Captain Picard and the Enterprise-E later join the story.

This is the 2nd time I’ve read it.

I’ve read 2 books by Perry.
