Re: Typhon Pact: Raise the Dawn by DRGIII Review Thread (Spoilers!)
I don't know, based purely on what was said in the spoilers above, I'd actually say that Kira joining The Prophets is a very positive outcome, and given where they were going with the stuff set up in Warpath, and what we've seen in the last few stories with her it seems like a logical end for that arc. I think it's also a great way to tie up (this chapter of?) her story. And if she joined The Prophets like Sisko did, then she could easily return in a later story. As for DS9, while I am disappointed to see it gone, I'm more than willing to wait and see what happens.
EDIT: As for losing a female Captain, we do have Ro now, and Kira was no longer a Captain, so we're pretty much at the same place now in terms of female leaders as we were before these books.
Honestly, hearing about all this actually makes me a lot more excited for the story.
EDIT: I'd been trying to hold off buying more books until I got more of my stuff on my to read list finished (I have 152 books in my "I plan to read" list on Shelfari), but I might have to splurge and get these tomorrow, not knowing exactly what's going on is driving me crazy.
