Star Trek: Tales of the Dominion War

For two seasons, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine chronicled the intense struggle of the Federation, fighting alongside the Klingons and the Romulans against the overwhelming forces of the Dominion in some of the most exciting hours of television ever produced.

Now, for the first time, see how the Dominion War affected the entirety of the Star Trek universe. From the heart of the Federation to the bridge of the Starship Enterprise. From the front lines of Klingon space to the darkest recesses of the Romulan Empire. From the heroic members of the Starfleet Corps of Engineers to the former crew of the U.S.S. Stargazer. From the edge of the New Frontier to the corridors of station Deep Space 9.

Some of the finest Star Trek novelists have been gathered to provide a dozen new tales from this seminal period in galactic history. Heroes from three generations–Sisko, Picard, Spock, Kira, Calhoun, Klag, McCoy, Gold, and so many more–brought together in these…

This anthology marked the first time that Kevin and I were invited to join a lineup of some of the most popular Star Trek novelists writing today — even though it ended up being published after our first two TNG books and the previous Star Trek: New Frontier – No Limits anthology. Peter David, Michael Jan Friedman, Howard Weinstein…these are guys whose books I was reading years and years before I ever got the hair-brained notion that I might be able to write.

In the story Kevin and I wrote for this anthology, “Field Expediency,” S.C.E. specialists Kieran Duffy and Fabian Stevens must work with agents from Starfleet Intelligence to salvage a vital piece of encryption technology from the Breen. Naturally, things go Horribly Wrong(tm).

  1. I just read your short story and have mixed feelings. The idea of a recovery operation is good. But the characters are behaving in my opinion stupidly – which surprised me because of your background as a Marine…

    Examples are where the Breen are retreating after the first firefight, one Breen is carrying a stunned fellow soldier and the engineer Duffy doesn’t want to shoot (stun) the Breen in the back. That would have further reduced the numeric supremecy of the Breen…
    Furthermore I wonder why the Federation guys were using Stun settings on their phasers (the Breen obviously don’t return the favour)
    Moreover it was awkward that at the end the engineer annouced he was able to recover data and that he wanted the Breen to knew about this. Thereas it was not too logical either that they don’t took Breen prisoners with them….

    All this reduced at least for me the quality of the story and I feel I would enjoyed it much more if the characters wouldn’t behave so unrealistic…


Lay it on me.
