I seem to remember both the RU and MU versions of Empok Nor were involved in some way. I think the MU Empok was being used as a base by the Pah Wraith cult or something like that.

Re: DS9 Millennium

I might be getting a hold of these three books this week. I heard they were good and from this thread, it most certainty seems like they are! Cannot wait to read them now! Just a few more days!

Re: DS9 Millennium

I read the trilogy once when it came out. What? 2000? 2001? I'm not remembering a lot right now, but I do remember loving them. I've been thinking I should dig them out again.

Re: DS9 Millennium

IMO a mediocre trilogy, and probably one of the most overrated projects in TrekLit history.

Although I would say the same about many of the Reeves-Stevens books, so probably I just think they're overrated.

I loved Federation, but aside from that, yeah. I'm glad I'm not the only one

Re: DS9 Millennium

IMO, it was the most epic Trek story up till that point -(Federation, Q-Squared and Vendetta had been the previous titleholders in that regard )

But, as much as I hold this story in high regard (also because it's one of the preludes to DS9R AFAIK), it pales in comparison to what we got in later years (especially, of course, Destiny )

I just read the second book last night. Dukat's using the Mirror-Universe version of Terok Nor for his...er, congregation of dead people.

Yeah. Between DS9R, Vanguard, Destiny, and even Voyager now with Full Circle and Unworthy, "epic" has developed a new meaning in TrekLit in the last decade.

I like the Millenium Trilogy I like the different Au turn the books took and the the twists and turns the characters and the story took before the ds9 crew were able to return to their own time.

Agreed. Each time I don't think they could possibly outdo themselves, they actually manage to a couple years down the line. And that is a good thing.

Re: DS9 Millennium

I enjoyed the trilogy very much. I did find the middle volume to be slow-going at times, but then the whole thing raced to its amazing conclusion. And then, because the omnibus came with new material (Allyn Gibson's timeline), I had to buy it all over again.
