Re: Typhon Pact: Zero Sum Game Review thread Thanks Mack, I've been waiting for this one. I enjoyed it. Although I personally would have liked more of Bacco, although I admit I'm a huge fan of Atricles of the Federation. I can never get enough of how the Federation is run and how the differing species interact with one another. I could do less with the Bashir and Dax characters. Maybe cause I never liked them from the very start. I just hope we see less of them in the upcoming novels. So far this series looks promising. I just HOPE it culminates into an epic massive war ... maybe something similar to the dominion war? I can only hope. I have a few questions, Spoiler why did the Aventine have to ram the prototype ship back into the hanger with its sheilds? couldn't they have used a tractor beam? or gently nudged it back with its phashers?. That whole sequence was just unnecessarily overly dramatic. AND why TWO WEEKS LATER?! couldn't you have written a chapter or at least a paragraph or two about how Leishman fixed the warp coils, and not to mention the aventine escaping the 4 incoming breen cruisers and getting past the cloaked Romulan warbirds? ... sure, you say they had slipstream but to me at least this seems like a major gap in the story.
