I loved raise the dawn. I see it as duality of both an ending and a new beginning for DS9. Star Trek is more about the characters for me than about the ships or stations, so I wouldn't be too excited to read future DS9 novels with the old station, but a new crew. I am much happier looking forward to future books with our favorite characters from the series with the new station.
I look forward to finding out what happens to Kira. I know we haven't seen the last of her.
It will be interesting to see if the wormhole returns. I bet it does.
People have mentioned returning Odo via slipstream. Just how fast is slipstream? How long would it take?
Will Sisko and Picard have a storyline together where they get to know one another and Sisko stops thinking of Picard as Locutis? Maybe there has been in a book I have not read...
Will Sisko leave Starfleet, of bring his family on board Robinson?
That's what makes this such a good book. It sets the stage for exciting new adventures and leaves you asking questions. I look forward to continuing this storyline.
