Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: The Way of the Warrior Novelization

Written by Diane Carey, Story by Ira Steven Behr and Robert Hewitt Wolfe
Pocket Books $5.99US/ $7.99Can
279 pages

As you may guess this is the novelization of the new season kickoff of DS9. It is one of the best Star Trek novelizations I have read. Ms Carey adds her own touches, of course, however, these touches actually add something to the story.

Through out this book we get a look into what is happening in the minds of several of the DS9 crew. We also get more information as to what is behind the attack on Garak; both from his point of view as well as from the Klingons. Most importantly, we get a peek at the situation in both the Klingon and the Cardassian fleets and on Cardassia.

One of the best scenes is when Gul Dukat attempts to convince the council that they must leave Cardassia or face being killed by the incoming Klingons. It is funny in it's very absurdity as Dukat faces being executed by the very people he is attempting to save.

Another excellant scene is on the bridge of the Negh'Var as he faces, not only stiffening resistance from the reforming Cardassian Fleet, but the arrival of Gowron who would be entitled to take credit for the victory.

All in all, this is a very good read. It is very much worth reading as it gives the one a better glimpse into the background of what is arguably the most important DS9 episode to date.

On the Makin scale this treatment scores a respectable 8/10.
