Re: Star Trek: Destiny Book 3: Lost Souls - (SPOILERS)

Deranged Nasat

Obviously, we view the "Destiny" trilogy differently.
Trent sumarised accurately my opinion about the books:

"It isn’t a quest story, or a mystery, or an epic, where characters are expected to solve the problems that confront them; no, this, to my disgust, is a story of deliverance. It’s more than the idea that Picard, Riker and so on don’t actively contribute to solving the problem: it’s that the problem is so huge that these mere mortals cannot possibly be expected to solve it in the first place, and must instead make recourse to a higher power, those gods of night, whose technological acumen borders on the divine, thanks to a half-human, half-‘divine’ messiah who sacrifices herself to the enemy."
