Re: Typhon Pact: Plagues of Night by DRGIII Review Thread (Spoilers!) Voted "Above Average." I enjoyed the story, but there was too much recapping for me. Props to DRGIII for doing the recapping in an interesting way, letting us see the events from ZSG, RBoE, and PoD from completely different points of view than from the characters featured in those books. I'm not sure if all the recapping was an editorial decision, but I just felt the first half of the story was too bogged down by it. Of all the plotlines, I think I enjoyed the one following Trok the most. I'm glad we got to see more of the Breen after ZSG. Also enjoyed seeing the Dominion again. One thing I couldn't help but notice was that the few details regarding the five-year period that was jumped over did little to nothing to elaborate on what we already knew from RBoE. The catastrophy on Endalla, Rebecca's kidnapping, Taran'atar, the Ascendant War, all were mentioned but no light was shed on them. It really seems like they are planning to tell those stories in the future, otherwise why be so coy. Incidentally, does anyone else think that maybe the Ohalavaru who kidnapped Rebecca may have been Yevir Linjaren? Spoiler: Regarding the ending I wasn't surprised by the explosion of DS9 so much, but I was surprised that the Typhon Pact ships engaged DS9 and the Defiant. An awefully big risk for them, even considering what's at stake. It may have made more sense for the warbird to beam it's cargo to one of the allied vessels when it got caught, rather than start a firefight, then come up with some kind of story for why it abandoned it's mission. Though considering that Eletrix had deceived Enterprise into thinking they'd been destroyed, I guess there was no good explanation at that point. Did it bother anyone else that DS9 seemed to have some trouble defending itself against one Breen warship and one Tzenkethi marauder, to the point that Runabouts of all things were called in, when the station was able to successfully fend off an entire fleet of Klingon ships and heavily damage a Dominion fleet in the past?
