10: Deep Space Nine Season Eight

Avatar, Book One.

In the final scene of DS9 we saw Jake Sisko peering out of a window at the wormhole. As we pulled away from the station, so much had been resolved yet so much was left undone. The TV series had signed off, but the story didn't end there. In an unprecedented experiment, Pocket Books decided to continue a Star Trek series in book form with what is essentially the Deep Space Nine Season Eight premiere, Avatar. Penned by S.D. Perry, this two-part story opens with Jake and propels us into the next stage of the story surrounding Bajor, the Dominion, and the Prophets. In this episode of Literary Treks we take a close look at the first half of this story, the new and familiar faces that make up the new DS9 crew, the cyclical nature of events, and the search for new directions. 

In our news segment we check in on Dayton Ward's entry in "The Fall" series, Peaceable Kingdoms, discuss our expectations for Star Trek Ongoing #18 and Countdown to Darkness #2, and talk about how comics could be the perfect format for launching Enterprise Season Five.
