Book 4 of 27 in the Star Trek: Deep Space Nine Series

Book 4 of 27 in the Star Trek: Deep Space Nine Series. The pen name of Sandy Schofield for this early Star Trek Deep Space Nine title is kind of funny actually when considering that the authors, husband and wife writing team Dean Wesley Smith and Kristine Kathryn Rusch felt that six names would be too many on the cover of a book. Of course, this was their only Star Trek title using "Sandy Schofield" and every title since has had their complete names on them.

Comments to eBook The Mist: The Captain's Table Book 3 (Star Trek Deep Space Nine)
Framokay
Of the six Captain's Table books I'd have to say this one comes in a close second to Peter David's "Once Burned." I say this because I feel that the character of Captain Sisko is one of the best character's in the Trek universe.
Although there are a few minor inconsistencies in the story, they are not too distracting. As it happens, a lot of the Trek books released have had them and I do my best to ignore them. Afterall, the books are not canon.
"The Mist" is an extremely well told story about a race that lives close to DS9 and are for all intents and purposes, cloaked or in another dimension that is only one step removed from the Federations. What a wonderful concept! In my opinion, the author's captured Captain Sisko's personality really well. The character interactions in the bar were particularly good. Sotugh is a well done Klingon. The Quilli besting a Klingon was really funny as well. Overall a great story and thank you very much to the author's for this one.

The story related by Captain Sisko was interesting enough, by itself. The way the scene was depicted was simply marvelous! I had the feeling I was actually in the bar, "a fly on the wall", observing the goings-on. Yes, there was the usual rounds of drinks ... but Sisko and his (verbal) protagonist also ordered meals!

The mini-debates between the listeners (one who objected to all of the interruptions) was totally believable. In other words, marvelous characterization of the onlookers made the story 'real'.

The Captain's Table series are my favorite Star Trek books, and Captain Sisko is my favorite command officer. The author captured Captain Sisko's personality very well. Scenario: Sisko walks into a bar called the Captain's Table, and finds that there are two requirements for admission to this exclusive bar. One, you have to be a captain of a vessel, second, you have to tell a story. The character's around the table were an interesting lot. Captain Sisko is authentic to his Creole roots, ordering jambalaya and later nachos with jalapenos. In the story, during a negotiation with the Klingons, a mysterious "mist" shows up, a mysterious race in close proximity to DS9, either cloaked or in another dimension. As Sisko tells the story, his perspective is challenged and interrupted by a Klingon captain and others around the table whose perspectives are different. As usual, the vastly different perspectives of the alien captains around the table listening to the tale act as a "devil's advocate" and force you to look at the story from different views. This is probably my favorite Captain's Table book. I always love to have a Klingon listen to your story and comment.

As with the first two books of this miniseries, half of the book centers in "The Captain's Table", a mysterious place that seems to exist interdimensionally, can be entered only by captains, but captains of any stripe and from any place or time period; sort of a "Callahan's Crosstime Saloon", restricted to captains instead of people who Spider Robinson finds interesting. The other half of the book consists of a story told by our main character, in this case, Ben Sisko, about an adventure that he or she has had as a captain, told to the other captains at the bar.

As in the previous two books, both stories are very well told, and are quite enjoyable. The problem, and the reason I only rate this book three stars, is that, while I find the basic concept amusing and interesting, I continue to have a problem with the fact that the Starfleet officers DON'T have a problem with the nature of the place; they cheerfully tell stories to rooms full of people whose cultures do not seem to have warp drive capability, or worse, seem to be from earth prior to the invention of warp drive, stories which center around spaceflight and alien cultures, without being the least concerned about the prime directive. Now, perhaps they don't always understand the nature of the place, or don't fully believe it; or perhaps they conclude that the fact that the people are here in the room interacting with other spaceflight cultures and aliens already means that any damage is already done, so nothing they might say can make it any worse. But it would be helpful if this mental process, whatever it may be, was made more clear. As it stands, I can't consider any of these stories canonical, which is a shame given how interesting and well-told they are.

PLOT OR PREMISE:
This is the third in the series dealing with the bar called "The Captain's Table", a bar only for Captains across time and space. Sisko is in need of some rest, so he visits Bajor and finds the bar. And finds that the interesting aspect of the bar is that everyone gets to tell a tale. His tale is of a group known as The Mist. Centuries before, the Mist shifted themselves and their worlds out of normal space into a phased sub-space. Having left normal space behind, they have been excluded from the trials and tribulations of the Federation, the Klingon Empire, the Romulans and the Cardassians. However, they lure Sisko into their space to help them fight an apparent revolt by subversives who are going to phase-shift DS9 and use it in Mist space to attack other worlds.
.
WHAT I LIKED:
The story is interesting enough, particularly some of the new-to-the-Star-Trek-universe characters, and good involvement of the Klingons.
.
WHAT I DIDN'T LIKE:
The story jumps back to "normal" time too often to show the bar, when the story Sisko is telling is far more interesting. The characters and Klingon involvement are good, but are either not well-integrated in the main plot or just not developed enough. Plus, Kira comes off as some cartoonish clone of her real character.
.
DISCLOSURE:
I received no compensation, not even a free copy, in exchange for this review. I am not personal friends with the authors, but I do follow her on social media.
