Description

In 1993 -- a decade ahead of its time -- Star Trek: Deep Space Ninebegan with an eerily prophetic and untold back story: the controversial military occupation of an alien world, and the violent insurgency that fought against it. Now that full shattering saga of warring ideologies, national security, terrorism, greed, secret intelligence, moral compromise and embattled faith is given its due in the epic Terok Nortrilogy. In Day of the Viperswhat starts as a benign visitation to the bountiful planet Bajor from the resource-poor Cardassian Union soon becomes a conflict of competing national interests. Seen though the eyes of participants on both sides -- among them an ambitious young Cardassian officer named Skrain Dukat -- the personal, political, and religious struggles between the two peoples quickly spiral out of control, shaping the futures of both heroes and villains in an unforgettable, emotionally wrought and action-packed tale of tragedy and hope.show more

Review quote

"I have found that good novels have a color one can associate with the tone of the story, and in the case of this book that color is Cardassian grey... Good and evil are not cleanly divided between people in the book. Some of the Cardassians are good, and some of the Bajorans are bad, in other words." -- The-Trades.comshow more
