    My previous questioned (Thread) seemed to be received with a bit more confusion than I had hoped for, but nonetheless, you all were indeed helpful and I not only appreciate your responses, but would like to thank you as well--> Thanks! :)
    Now, to the above specific question. So, I'm try to as specific as I can, as try and not confuse. I'm looking for our avid reader's favorite and only 1 (OK, maybe 2 or 3 lol) Politically based Star Trek Novels from the following time lines:

    Voyager, DS9 & TNG....Screw it! How about from any timeframe within the Star Trek Novel Universe ?

    Of course, Articles of the Federation, as much as I enjoyed K-RAD's title and as much as he's the reason I'm a Klingon nut lol, I've already read it (twice..lol).

    The early DS9 relaunch featured some elements of politics in the admission of Bajor to the Federation but that's more than one novel.
    I'm not sure how much this one counts as politics but TNG: Losing the Peace is fantastic. It deals with the fallout of the Borg invasion from Destiny and certainly has some politics in it. Voyager also had a great little trilogy in the form of Protectors, Acts of Contrition and Atonement. They mostly don't deal with Federation politics but they are damn good nonetheless. The Prometheus trilogy also featured politics but it isn't released in English and not part of VGR, DS9 and TNG.

    @Insane Genis-Vell I pre-ordered Prometheus Book I: Fire Against Fire, a few days ago, which comes out in English in about 4 weeks :lol::lol:

    The Lost Era novels, Serpent Among the Ruins and The Art of the Impossible deal with the politics of the Klingons, Romulans, Cardassians and the Federation.

    DS9's Hollow Men by the quite wonderful Una McCormack.

    @Relayer1 I haven't gotten around to Hollow Men, but recently purchased it. Ms. McCormack has never failed to amaze me with her style and content. Of course, it doesn't hurt that I'm partial to Cardassians as well.
    I did read James Swallow's Day of the Vipers and cannot stress enough how underrated and impressive it was....but.....I haven't gotten around to the other two titles that make up the Cardassian occupation of Bajor trilogy. I've head mixed reviews/below average reviews of the last two titles, hence I've been hesitant to dive into those two novels.

    "Timeline" is not a good word for this scenario, though it is used infuriatingly commonly. A better word would be "timeframe".
