Re: TF: Peaceable Kingdoms by Dayton Ward Review Thread (Spoilers!)
The ending felt rushed, and I guess ultimately the weakness was in that the book basically focused on snippets from character lives that were in the end ephemeral to the overall ARC. I feel almost like the Crusher/Daret/Ishan bits should've been an ebook filling in pieces, while more could've been done with
the conspiracy within Starfleet Command
(which to me seemed the more interesting thing than Ishan being a manchurian candidate).
My problem is that there is an interesting idea at the centre here - a clash of ideologies about the future direction of Starfleet and the federation but it is badly articulated because pretty much everyone on the hawkish side is portrayed as either straight out evil or willing to kill people or fire on their own ships because they are unquestioning drones.
