I started Mission Gamma Twilight this week and while I'm not that far into it, I reached a critical moment, the moment that was the basis of DS9 to begin with. Bajor is finally going to join the federation, and it took a war and aiding 2 planets (Cardassia and Europa Nova) to do it. I do wish this would have happened on screen but to know that DS9 continued and I finally have chosen to experience that continuation makes me extremely happy. I started this thread looking for new Star Trek. I liked the Abrams films (Star Trek more than Into Darkness) but as a fan of 24th century trek, there was something missing and I can only see the episodes so many times. To finally get into the relaunch and really dig into it (not just say I will and then have the thread die) this last month has been really fun. With this, and then maybe getting into the Voyager stuff later his year (and I decided I was going to try to get homecoming and further shore), it's great to finally embrace he trek lit world.
