If you want to find out more about the Parasites, read the Audrid Dax story in "The Lives Of Dax", and the Trill portion of the World's Of DS9 novels will deal with the fall out from Unity story.
Good to know.

Finally made it to Lesser Evil in our reread on Literary Treks. Wow, so good.

Re: TNG, DS9, and VOY - Where is a Good Place to Start?

Hey guys. Long time fan of Star Trek and DS9 being my favourite, I recently found about the books about the continuing stories of the series and my jaw dropped. Then I discovered that massive flowchart of the novel-verse and got really excited

I just finished off "The lives of Dax today", will be moving onto a stitch in time and progressing down the DS9 track, it's all very exciting.

I really enjoyed TLoD book, really fleshed out the character well and was worth the read as a fan of Dax. I must admit, I was really just waiting to get to Joran chapter (the serial-killing pianist), and the pay-off was great. I however was surprised to find myself enjoying the other stories as well.

I can confirm what 'tomswift2002' stated, that the conspiracy parasite makes a return (well I guess it's first appearance, as young Captain Pike and trill investigate a comet, which appears to contain a trill slug). The moment it clicked for me was when the mentioned the tail like protrusion at the base of the brain-stem.

They book had lot's of nice tie-ins with other famous trek characters, like: Sisko, captain Pike, McCoy and Verad (the symbiont stealing trill, from DS9 S1 episode "Dax")

Anyway, I have a long road ahead in my reading journey, but I'm looking forward to it and happy to join this community.

Cheers and take care.

oh nice, I was always hoping to find out what happened to this enemy after season 1 TNG. Great to find out they get fleshed out a bit more. They don't seem to like the Trill that much though, I'm sure it's all just misunderstanding, either that or they're related evil slugs and the parasites wear goatee's

Ezri tries to get to the bottom of things concerning the parasites in the Worlds of DS9 Trill story.

Nice thanks. I'm a good 6-9 months away from that I'm guessing. I think I'm going to digest all of the DS9 backstory / crossover stuff and Klingon empire stories in tandem (according to the flowchart, cheers to whoever made that, it's awesome )

Which is a lot of reading, but I love me some DS9

The parasite story also connects to the gift that Captain Picard's archaeology professor from the Academy gives him.
