    One thought on “The Missing”

    1. Solid reading GOOD STARTING POINT TO NEW READERSNot all journeys seek an end Some are their own purpose.This novel, The Missing, is set right after the events on the book miniseries named The Fall, however, you don t really know to have read that miniseries to engage into this book, in fact, if you ever wanted to read Deep Space Nine in its Relaunch era the book expanded universe , this is a good point since it s like the starting point to a new era for the series In fact, this book works like p [...]

    2. Two hours took only two hours to read this exciting, fast paced, funny, poignant, rich novel Una McCormack truly is the new queen of the DS9 universe, and this novel encapsulates everything I love about this corner of the Star Trek universe It s also a surprisingly intimate adventure the core group of characters is small, the settings used almost qualify it as a TV bottle episodebut the effects, as in all good DS9, are felt light years away A truly wonderful escape to the final frontier.

    3. Decent Star Trek story, fine parallel story lines, although I do find that they are all somewhat clunkily resolved.

    4. It s a decent Star Trek novel, but it s hampered by a couple of things The first is that it s supposedly a Deep Space Nine novel, but there are very few of the original Deep Space Nine characters in it The second is a villain race, with technology greater than the Borg, which shows up out of no where and disappears just as quickly The story has a lot of human interaction, but very little suspense or drive.

    5. This book wasn t what I thought it was going to be, but from now on I ll stop to consider any book by author Una McCormack I thoroughly enjoyed this book I loved the strong female characters, the storytelling, and the way political intricacies were dealt with Action was included without dependency, but added interest to the tale The storyline was easy to follow even if one or two of the vowel heavy alien names became confused in my mind a time or two I m only sorry the book wasn t longer.

    6. Life on DS9 II goes on Captain Ro Laren welcomes the People of the Open Sky, while playing host to Dr Katherine Pulaski, Cardassians, Romulans and Tzenkethi plus plenty of other familiar faces A burglary in Dr Beverly Crusher s office, a murder amongst the People and a threat from a formidable new species, forces the two doctors and crews to put aside their egos to solve the mystery If they don t, the Alpha Quadrant might find itself at war.n The things change I absolutely loved this book Una s [...]

    7. Nach sehr langer Zeit kommt wieder mal ein DS9 Roman ans Licht der deutschen ffentlichkeit Die Geschichte spielt unmittelbar nach der Wahl der neuen F rderationspr sidentin auf Deep Space Nine und hat verschiedene Charaktere zum Mittelpunkt, die man aus den TV Serien DS9 und TNG kennt Auf der neuen DS9 ist Ro Laren inzwischen Captain, den Posten von Julian Bashir hat Beverly Crusher bernommen, nachdem sie eine Pause von Jean Luc Picard brauchte und Katherine Pulaski besuchte als Besatzungsmitgli [...]

    8. A fun, light hearted story of DS9, one that makes for a nice break from the solemn and paradigm shifting tomes of David R George III and David Mack Una McCormack knows what makes her three main characters Ro, Crusher, and Pulaski tick, and imbues them all with the force of personality reminiscent of the excellent actors who portrayed them, and then some.

    9. One of the best Star Trek books I ve read Also, it s a great jump in book for anyone who wants to give the books a try.

    10. Star Trek Deep Space Nine The Missing by Una McCormack While Ro is approached by Odo to act as an intermediary in the question of missing Cardassian prisoners of war in Romulan space, first contact is made with a new species, the People of the Open Sky, laid back, friendly, with lots of children Meanwhile, Katherine Pulaski has joined the Federation ship Athene Donald dedicated to exploration, and crewed by a multitude of species, even non allied ones like a Tzenkethi In the last moment, SI comm [...]

    11. Una McCormack s latest offering The Missing takes us back to the new DS9 is essentially a two fold story with plots that while being unrelated does in fact offer some interesting possibilities especially with the latter The primary plot the one for which the book is titled involves Odo who is visiting from Bajor at the request of a Cardassian judge Nestor Mhevita Pa Dan who has gone to him looking for answers about her son who was a POW on the Romulan front in the Dominion War hasn t been heard [...]

    12. Meh The author s note indicated she was writing while pregnant Maybe she had baby brain, since this was not up to par I ve read others by her which were good Katherine Pulaski was an irritating character in the show, but she never reached the heights of true obnoxiousness that she did in this book Even at the worst in TNG, she was still compassionate She was fierce when she was protective of her patients, and stubborn, and arrogant I felt in this book that she was simply wildly out of character [...]

    13. I found The Missing to be another partially well executed existing universe novel, but only partially.I liked the continuation of events in the Star Trek universe, not bombastic but a continued progression of existing political themes The characters were treated respectfully with none appearing wildly out of character And I enjoyed Ms McCormack s choice for an all female group of lead characters.I didn t like several of the re hashes of existing Star Trek tropes thrown out in the climax of the b [...]

    14. A really nicely structured, fluid work built from a set of intertwining stories on themes of exile, immigration, refugee status, and belonging DS9 is the perfect vehicle for a story like this in the Star Trek universe, and without making any explicit references like some Trek writers are compelled to , she heavily recalls the pilot episode in a sense of establishing a home for a collection of misfit exiles, most of whom didn t want to be there DS9 stories of late have been a mix of geopolitics a [...]

    15. This book could be subtitled the Redemption of Doctor Pulaski The show did a disservice to her character, writing her to be a female version of McCoy while giving her a lazy, half formed prejudice against Data In the early chapters of this novel, Beverly Crusher plays the part of Every Star Trek Fan Ever and elucidates these concerns As Pulaski answers them, outright admitting she was an asshole about Data, she wins over Crusher, winning back an awesome, brusque doctor for the Trek Verse It s wo [...]

    16. This one didn t live up to the author s usual quality There were parts of the book that very quickly told what was going on, plus I felt like the Crusher s animosity towards Pulaski was very out of character I also noticed that many of the characters growled things or made some kind of growling noise in their throats Everyone was growling about something As far as the plot goes, I thought it was entertaining yet also a bit scattered Some of the events, such as the break in to Crusher s office, d [...]

    17. The Missing brings us back to Deep Space Nine in a way that made the series great More than any other Star Trek series, the premise of DS9 allowed for day in the life vignettes and on going story arcs, and The Missing showcases those features expertly I very much enjoy Una McCormack s writing, and I love that she feels free to experiment with different styles of narrative For example, each chapter in The Missing begins with a personal log entry by Captain Picard, discussing various aspects of di [...]

    18. A refreshing change in the new Star Trek continuity as opposed to the novels that take place during the series themselves.It s a tale of exploration that also deals with what a couple of main characters are going through And it s also kind of nice to see Dr Pulaski back Though while McCormack does a great job with her, a little of her still goes a long way.But it s nice that there s not some epic conflict going on References are made to the current political situation, but it s not an espionage [...]

    19. Picking up on numerous threads left hanging in the recent Star Trek books, The Missing follows three main storylines Beverly Crusher settling in aboard Deep Space Nine, Katherine Pulaski aboard a civilian starship encountering a strange alien ship and a murder mystery aboard the new station All of these are handled excellently by McCormack, bringing a number of characters seen in recent novels to conclusions and new beginnings More of a classic Trek novel, returning to the sort of adventures fou [...]

    20. I always enjoy seeing characters from the Star Trek shows making follow up appearances in books like these This was no exception It was great seeing Dr Pulaski again after her time assisting Dr Bashir during the meta genome storyline and even greater seeing what happened with Commander Peter Alden and Corazame after their recent storyline.Throw in another new multispecies ship the Athene Donald , a first contact with a technologically powerful race and the return of Odo to Deep Space Nine and we [...]

    21. Una McCormack made Katherine Pulaski downright lovable which is incredible When I started reading I was like oh great a whole book at least partially from the perspective of the woman who would not fucking cut data a break but that is addressed and Pulaski easily becomes the most entertaining character in the book I was particularly happy that McCormack used her to make metacommentary about Star Trek in general, her offhand remark about how peoplemight think humans are mostly white western males [...]

    22. It was okay It was nice seeing Crush, Pulaski, Ro, Odo, Quark and Garak again But the story was rather ho hum.I wasn t impressed with the Aliens of the Week They seemed like rejects from Voyager.I wasn t impressed with the Cardassian POW storyline It wasn t very original.I wasn t impressed with the Tzenkethi They re really not all that interesting.And I wasn t impressed with the fate of Pulaski She should be captain of a science ship Instead she s doing her usual shtick of standing off to the si [...]

    23. This is a badass book, with mostly badass women characters in it Crusher, Pulaski, Ro and a bunch of great original female characters as well The mystery of the week wasn t my favourite, it feels like something that s been covered in the novels before and it s a story that lends itself to print rather than visual media so you can view spoiler create a situation where two crews encounter aliens separately and you only find out later that the aliens belong to the same species hide spoiler.But stil [...]

    24. What not to love with a new alien race that stronger than those in the known galaxy Enjoyed the story, and revisiting the characters of both TNG and DS9 as their lives and careers have continued from where we last saw them in their series But future readers, it helps to have read the past books since the relaunching of the books have created new story lines and characters Many of these story events are mentioned in the story, and you will be wondering other characters are located in the ST unive [...]

    25. This was a pretty good stand alone ST Una McCormack knows the characters writes them well, the plot held my interest throughout I ve been enjoying reading about the big new station, even though it has been well established in previous books I love seeing Capt Ro in command,e s always been an interesting character to me ever since she came into the picture long ago in TNG Odo gets alot screen time as well I like the fact that he s gonna be living on the station for awhile All in all an entertaini [...]

    26. This was not the greatest entry into the DS9 relaunch I struggled to get into it and by the end was reading it just to finish it It was not really a DS9 book in terms of the characters, most of whom were from TNG but it had elements of a good sequel to The Fall miniseries and the Romulan Cardassian plot line was interesting than the A story and could have had much time spent on it.

    27. Good book.In the aftermath of The Fall DS9 is picking up the pieces and gradually going back to normal But Captain Ro finds new situations coming up, including appearances of several Next Generation characters I would generally recomend this novel, but it carries on from several of Una s earlier Trek books You should probably read Brinkmanship as well as Crimson Shadow before reading this.

    28. Absolutely fantastic In fact, almost every books from this author is a great read I liked multiple plots, and that the title applied to all of them I liked the appearance of Pulaski, whom I always liked It s also great to see some new stories from DS9 The station had been neglected by Treklit for much too long.

    29. This is not a good book I love Star Trek and love all things Trek and DS9 We deserve better books The characters are thin and one note There just ins t a lot of deep thinking going on here and the end, relying on transwarp beaming, was way too deus ex machina.Don t waste your time on this very thin story.
