Rising Son question

I've begun to read "Rising Son" on Kindle and noticed that the Hunters are referred to as "ochshea". Would this be "hunter" in Tosk's language?

Re: Rising Son question

the word ochshea-hos is specifically translated as "the hunter's word," so I'd guess yes.

Re: Rising Son

This is the only Rising Son thread I found in an advanced search. I just started reading the book.

No spoilers (please), however, what did folks generally think/feel about the book? Is it liked around here?

I loved it. It was one of my favorite books in the DS9 Relaunch, and I would love to see a follow up with the Even Odds crew.

Re: Rising Son question

Firely in the Trekverse is a very good description.

I wonder if Jake ever wrote up his experiences on the Even Odds?

I remember enjoying it quite a bit. And I bet he did write up his experiences. <g>

Re: Rising Son question

I really enjoyed it, both on its own merits and as a parallel to what was happening in Mission Gamma. In the latter, our Starfleet gang is out meeting new cultures in the Gamma Quadrant; in Rising Son Jake's out there encountering some of the species seen but not really explored on TV. And some big surprises.

He did indeed. Then he sold them to Federation Original Xenofilms, who turned it into a holoseries.

Which they then broadcast out of order and cancelled in half a season.

But they did follow it up with a movie that did didn't do so well on Earth, but quite well in the rest of the Federation.

Re: Rising Son question

I'm glad so many enjoyed the book. My hope is to wrap it up on the weekend. I haven't been able to get a good dent in it yet. I'm just at Chapter 2.

Honestly, Rising Son was one of my favorite stories.

Really hope the Even Odds makes another appearance some day.
