Maybe here they do, but remember... We're only a small pocket of the fanbase
The 3.5 out of 5 star rating is surprisingly consistent across all outlets I can find.
3.5 out of 5 across the board is NOT a bad score if you ask me. But then again, haters gonna hate I guess.

I'd rate Revelations and Dust above Poisoned Chalice, Peaceable Kingdoms and Ceremony of Losses. Nothing beats Crimson Shadow though.

Revelation and Dust was really just a spring board for more DS9 novels. I ain't complain'.
I agree. I am glad David left so many things for other authors to pick up on. DS9 has been neglected too long (I know some of the character have been used in other places, but I'm ready for the DS9 series to return)

I'm disappointed that Pocket couldn't even do something like a 20th anniversary anthology of new stories like Prophecy and Change back in 2003.

Re: The Missing by Una McCormack (Future book- probable spoilers)

I think it's way overdue to have some books that are exclusively ds9 books where they have the ds9 characters featured in their own storyarcs with larger roles in the books. Than brief roles along with the TNG Enterpise crewmembers getting most storytime in the books.I like the fall books a lot but I think it's time for new ds9 books to come out too.

In the matter of 1 or 2 months Katherine Pulaski goes from Bashir's secret conference to this?
As I recall from The Fall, she was slated to get a pardon from President zh'Tarash. As someone who is not only one of the foremost medical experts in the Federation, but who also risked her career and her liberty to save an entire species, it makes sense that she would have received both the kind of media attention and the kind of clout necessary for her to arrange something like the Athene Donald mission.

DS9 and its characters have been far from neglected in recent years* , although I do agree with you that it'll be nice to start seeing some more 'exclusively branded' DS9 stories.

* Since the publication of The Never-Ending Sacrifice back in 2009, Zero Sum Game, Rough Beasts of Empire, Brinkmanship, Plagues of Night, Raise the Dawn, Revelation and Dust, and A Ceremony of Losses have all dealt with DS9 and its characters either directly or partially. The only series to feature more 'Relaunch' titles released in that same period of time is TNG.

I can't help but think that there's a marketing reason that the DS9 branding has been sidelined. If that's true, it's probably going to be a very long time before you see it again.

I'm not sure how true it is, but it certainly seems that DS9 has gotten substantially more popular in the last couple of years thanks to streaming sites like netflix. I'd actually be surprised if we didn't see more of it.

The main problem with DS9 as a book series is that it only just resembles the DS9 of the television show. Which isn't a bad thing. But I'd say the difference is more pronounced than other series, which makes it a bit harder to just jump into.

^ Indeed. Quark, O'Brien and Nog are the only television characters still the station from the series.
