Taken from the poll numbers Raise the Dawn
is the most acclaimed 24th-century novel to be released since Destiny
ranks highly as well, while Brinkmanship
still beats out Paths.
While you have to be careful trusting these numbers due to the relatively small sample sizes, they suggest that the more recent Pact
entries have been better-received than the earlier ones.
And pardon the blowing of my own horn, but TrekMovie
voted Typhon Pact: The Struggle Within
the best short story or novella of 2011, and even called it the "clear winner... for all Star Trek fiction in 2011."
