So, having finished the 3 books here are my thoughts. No question about the best story: Trill. Awesome action the whole way with a great ending plus a small sad note. Most disappointing: Dominion I found it disjointed and in some ways not credible. The Founders discover religion? A Founder admits not to being a god? Sorry, just doesn't add up. Had to force myself to read it to the end. Most obvious ending: Andor. Was clear where the narative was heading almost from the start. Nevertheless, well written and kept me reading (until I lost it on the train with my tab. Luckily someone found and returned them.) Most riveting: Cardassia Everyone loves a story about a hostage situation. I guessed the ending but that's just one of those things. I guessed the ending to Ender's Game too. Sudden Ending: Ferenginar The story kinda ended suddenly. It was obvious from the start that Brunt was resposible but that was OK. Kinda like a Columbo-type "how caught him" drama. Still the ending "scene" was short. The one bit that I didn't understand was why having a monogamy clause in a marriage contract would be considered old-fashioned. Most resembled a TV episode: Bajor Has multiple story lines running together rather like most of the episodes do. Other books do too (especially Dominion) but not as much. The "Hi, Dad I am married" scene reminded me of the one from The Waltons (yeah - I am THAT old!) when one of the boys (was it Jim-Bob?) turned up married. Well, those are my thoughts. Time to move on to Warpath.
