And the politics!!! After book 1, I was thinkin "Well, that was a nice Bacco cameo. Too bad there wasn't more meat to it." Well, here was the meat. And seasoned to perfection. The Cardassian ambassador came as a complete shock to me. What a delightful surprise that was. Watching the political ballet unfold was a real treat.
It will surprise no one to learn that my favorite part of Mere Mortals
was President Bacco's work to assemble the Azure Nebula expedition.
