Yeah, Rebels sucked. The page count on each book was so low they could just have easily been one book, too.
It was one of the only numbered DS9s I skipped when they first came out. They just looked lame to me for some reason, and I *love* DS9. I went back and picked them up used a few years back, during the dry spell after the DS9 relaunch had run its course. Sadly they lived up to my low expectations, I really wish I'd have skipped them.
