*Crosses fingers that they do not destroy DS9 as he is fearing due to the description and cover of the next novel after this, namely the new starbase being built by the wormhole and the reference to 'devastating events in the Bajoran system'...*
I didn't like when they killed off Janeway, but if they destroy DS9? I'm done with 24th century Trek lit. Done, I say. Done, done, done!
The Enterprise-E crew has been in shambles and constantly swapping in and out for years now, Voyager has lost it's Captain in Janeway, Sisko got totally ripped to shreds in the last novel to feature him... I don't know if I can take much more.
Taking the characters "out of the toy box" is fine. I like that. But smashing them to bits for the sake of it? Noooo, bad.
Sigh. I miss the early 2000s. The DS9 relaunch books where glorious.
