Publisher's Summary

Continuing the Deep Space Nine saga - an original novel from New York Times best-selling author David R. George III!

At the end of 2385, in a significant shift of its goals from military back to exploratory, Starfleet sent Captain Benjamin Sisko and the crew of the USS Robinson on an extended mission into the Gamma Quadrant. Tasked with a yearlong assignment to travel unknown regions, they set out to fulfill the heart of Starfleet's charter: to explore strange new worlds and to seek out new life and new civilizations.

But now, three months into the mission, their first contact with an alien species comes in the form of an unprovoked attack on the Robinson. With the ship's crew suddenly incapacitated, 78 of the 1,300 aboard are abducted - including Sisko's daughter, Rebecca. But Rebecca had already been kidnapped years earlier by a Bajoran religious zealot, part of a sect believing that her birth fulfilled the prophecy of the arrival of the Infant Avatar. Does her disappearance now have anything to do with the harrowing events of the past? And for what purposes have these enemies taken Sisko's daughter and the rest of the missing?

    "Another great story set in multiple timelines "

    I really enjoyed this book it has great storylines and great characters. I especially like the gamma quadrant storyline with the strange new life and civilisation, and the dangers that causes for the characters on the ‘Robinson ‘ Sisko’s ship. I don’t want to give too much away, but the aliens in this book make this a very good story and I really enjoyed listening to this book.

    "Sisko not DS9 but amazing."

    After the reboot of Star Trek I’d given up on seeing my old friends again. This novel captures Sisko and Cassidy perfectly. If you loved DS9 don’t pass this up.

    Story
    "Can I have my money back?"

    I am left wondering if the Author has ever seen an episode of DS9. If you are going to have Sisco be your main character you need to study how he reacts to a situation and how Sisco speeks. This book completely missed the mark when it comes to Sisco.

    Having 2 mediocre stories mashed together in 1 book makes for a bad book. Had this been 2 books I feel more attention to detail could have been given to give 2 great stories. But unfortunately I listened to 2 rushed storylines that had almost nothing to do with one another.

    Very disappointing book. Seriously, can I get my money back???

    "good story, excellent performance"

    It was a good story, it had a decent flow and kept me interested. The performance by Robert Petkoff was outstanding as always.

    "DS9 this is not"

    This focuses on Captain Sisko and not the rest of the DS9 Crew. A little dissapointed but still is a good listen. Plenty of action.

    "Mixed up"

    I think the rider suffers from ADHD. The story really jumps around. It goes from one story to two other Stories I stop listening to it

    Story
    "Should be called the Adventures of Benjamin Sisco."

    I love the DS9 series but this book is not a DS9 story but rather a story about a single character from DS9. Because of that I was disappointed.
