    And we're back for Raise the Dawn, the back half of a Typhon Pact duology by author David R. George III, to be released on June 26th. In many ways following on from the author's own Rough Beasts of Empire the first installment of the two-parter, last month's Plagues of Night, continued to take the character of Benjamin Sisko down a path seen as controversial by some, and both books ushered in some of the longer review threads on the board as a result, as well as ancillary, equally intense threads. However, Plagues of Night appears to be generally well-liked so far, ranking quite high (and much higher than RBoE) in the score table. And let's not forget that we're dealing with an ongoing storyline that has yet to reach its conclusion: Signs point to finding it here, and so both fans and critics of recent events should pick this one up to learn what it looks like. And please do be respectful while debating it.

    ^ I wouldn't go that far, but I am intrigued as to how the previous novels events can be sorted and how close to a hot shooting war the events in the Gamma Quadrant and DS9 will bring the TP and KA powers.

    Still need to preorder it though which I'll get around to doing sometime today.

    Well, since we are not yet
    100% sure it's actually destroyed completely/totally, we don't know. But there is a change.

    I'm waiting to see the book. :rommie:

    Could be a second station is being built on Bajor's side. Could be a new station in the Gamma Quadrant. Could be Terok Nor is officially being retired. Who knows?

    Found a copy in the bookstore today and read the first section, "In Media Res," at the store. Waiting for the 26th to finish it when it's released on the Nook.

    All I can say is:

    Holy crap!
