Re: Typhon Pact: Rough Beasts Of Empire review thread
I haven't actually read the book yet, but based on what I've read in this thread, and what I know about the DS9 storyline,
I think Sisko's decision makes sense... from his perspective. I think that's the most important thing in this, you can't look at this from his family's perspective, you have to look at it from his. First off, he belives in the Prophets and what they say, and they tell him that if he marries Kasidy bad things would happen. But he ignored them, and now bad things have been happening so ,from his perspective, the best way to stop it is to leave Kasidy and his family before something happens to them. Yeah, it wasn't a nice thing to do to his family, but it really does seem to make sense if you look at it from his perspective. But like I said, I haven't read the book yet, so my opinion could very well change after I have read it. This is just based on what you guys have said in the thread.
