Re: Typhon Pact: Rough Beasts Of Empire review thread

^ It's possible to be critical without presuming to speak for a large group of people-- this attitude of "I don't like this premise or this approach to storytelling, therefore everyone sees it that way." I see the use of the DS9 ensemble as a way show how the new astro-political scene affects entire Trek universe, not just the major players of the Destiny trilogy or the various post-Destiny novels. I'd be plenty annoyed if new character arcs were spontaneously woven into Dominion War stories involving the TNG ensemble, but I could only hope those character arcs would be expanded upon. At least some of the new character arcs introduced in Zero Sum Game were followed up on in RBoE, and one can only hope that a lot of these new storylines expanded in future DS9 novels.
