Book Review: Star Trek: Typhon Pact: Raise The Dawn

Star Trek: Typhon Pact: Raise The DawnStar Trek: Typhon Pact: Raise The Dawn
Star Trek: The Next Generation
Paperback | Kindle
Written by David E. George III
Pocket Books
Release Date June 26, 2012

When it comes to the expanded universe for Star Trek, I am a bit of a newbie but so far my adventures into the universe of the books has been well worth it. Star Trek: Typhon Pact: Raise The Dawn is a follow-up book to Plagues of Night which sees the destruction of Deep Space 9 by the Typhon Pact, which is made up of the Romulan Star Empire, Tholian Assembly, Breen Confederacy, and Gorn Hegemony. Tensions have risen been the Typhon Pact and the Federation for a while and now there could be total war.

Raise The Dawn picks up with Captain Benjamin Sisko (who was played by Avery Brookson the show Deep Space Nine) on his knees on the bridge of his ship, the U.S.S. Robinson, watching the destruction of his station and his wife’s ship. From there we go to the U.S.S. Enterprise, which is going through the wormhole on its way back to the alpha quadrant. While traveling through the wormhole, the Enterprise crew finds a chunk of Deep Space Nine floating through it and on board is not only Kassidy Yates Sisko, but Major Kira. Meanwhile, Starfleet Command tells the U.S.S. Defiant to track down the Romulan vessel that was seen leaving the station just before the explosion.

One of the best things about this book was seeing Chief Miles O’Brien get to head up and design the new space station to take the place of the late Deep Space Nine. I really enjoyed the character development and if you are new to the expanded universe, the author, David E. George III, fills the reader in on a lot of the key events that have been going on. I really like the pace of this book and how fast of a read it is. Not only does Raising The Dawn have a lot of character development, but also plenty of action and a little bit of mystery as well.

While the Star Trek: The Original Series will always be my favorite, I do have to say that the characters of The Next Generation are growing on me more and more with every expanded universe book I read. I really think that George really knocks it out of the park on this one and shows us how these characters as fictional as they are can be so real and you can feel what they feel.

I give this book a five out of five.
