>I just finished the Typhon pact books I liked ZeroSum Game the best of the four novels. The second book i had hard time finishing it it was okay some of the Gorn stuff was interesting but I really didn't care for this book I wa rather bored rading this book.Rough beasts of the empire I liked the part book about Spock on Romulos  in the novel. But I was really disappointed how Ben Sisko's character was written in this novel. I did read DrG's comments about Sisko's behavior in the book. i wish there had been more information as to why Rebecca had been kidnapped and how they got her back.Paths of Disharmomy was okay but I didn't like the Andorians leaving the Federation.it will cause a shockwave throughout the federation  and if Andoria does join the Typhon it will cause problems for President bacco.

The series as a whole kinda left me disinterested like it did Promethea.  "Zero Sum Game' was great, "Seize the Fire" needed a chapter-ectimy in some places ( like the Old Thinker) but it was a decent story as whole I think. The Tzenkethi were the only redeeming aspect of "Rough Beasts" in my opinion. 


I'm not sure how I feel about Paths of Disharmony.  It was a slow starter, but it did come into its own.  It made me feel that the Enterprise can't continue 'as is' for much longer but I think tha was intended.  I kind of want to see the Choudrey /Worf thing implode over her allowing herself to manipulated by the Andorian computer wiz.  I am also not a Shar fan (Emo the Andorian) so I was pleased with his resignation hopefully that is the end of his story.

To me, all 4 books have a positive legacy. They left me hungry for more. They all concluded with season finale quality hooks. I feel like I did then- "AAAARGH! I have to wait forever to know what happens!?!"

I didn't like the Best destiny miniseries or Typhon pact series very much. I don't really care about all the post borg attack storylines.I wish there was a different series of Tng books that had nothing to do with aftermath of the borg attack ing the federation.Some stories that were about exploration and some kind new planets or a mystery would be  anice change from the dark brooding Tng books we've had the last few years.No offense to the writers and editors but  it would be nice to have some different types Startrek stories please..

There have been recent books from the D era, comics too. A lot of us, though, enjoy seeing the story continue much as Star Wars has done.

If you have not read them already, I think many of the stand-alone Titan books may be to your liking.  The first books are pretty Romulan intensive though.

Has anyone else read Typhon Pact 4 and all the current Vanguard novels?  The Tholian ambassador said what they did with the  Andorians was revenge for what the Federation did to them in regards to the Shedai but after reading the 4 VAN books, I didn't see anything specific for the Tholians to be too angry about.  If fact, Starfleet rescued a crew of theirs and successfully fought the Shedai, so what were the Tholians so bitter about after so long?


 


Since Ward wrote Typhon 4 and the upcoming Vanguard release, perhaps the answer referrs to the new novel.

I agree that there is not a clear answer in the Vanguard novels as to why the Tholians during Typhon Pact 4 have so much anamosity towards the Federation.  I was thinking it could be a cultural thing, that the Federation doesn't "get"

I think the answer will be in VAN 6. I am thinking Ward was setting us up for developments in his next book.

Matthias Russell: I read all the Typhon Pact and Vanguard books. From what I can understand, the Thoian Ambassador meant was the fact that Starfleet moved into the Taurus Reach, awakened the Shedai, and started all the problems that occured.

Accidently.  But Starfleet so far has saved many Tholian lives through their activity.
